The SMART Embedded Computing MC4100 MaxCore™ platform offers a versatile and dense architecture to achieve maximum compute and rendering density.


  • 15 PCIe slots with 190W power/slot enables the use of high performance, high density PCIe cards
  • The ability to use SMART EC or 3rd party PCIe cards means there is a very large ecosystem of available cards providing a wide range of functionality
  • A built-in PCIe Gen 3 fabric allows the system to be configured as a single PCIe domain or multiple domains sharing I/O resources
  • Extended height enables the use of taller PCIe cards with increased functionality and higher density


  • Cloud gaming rendering engine
  • Augmented reality rendering engine
  • Artificial intelligence GPU farm
