Power Processing

The QXi-4000 is a complete PC-based gaming platform designed exclusively to drive pay-to-play gaming and slot machines. This “all-in-one” gaming platform is built around the powerful AMD Embedded R-Series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), which has been optimized for high performance with low heat generation.

The QXi-4000 is available in Dual Core or Quad Core processor configurations clocked at up to 2.1GHz (2.8GHz with boost) and supports up to 16GB of high-performance DDR3-1600 main memory.

The QXi-4000 supports up to four independent HD monitors using the high-performance graphics capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD7000G (integrated into the AMD Embedded R-Series APU), providing discrete, level graphics performance. Embracing the latest DisplayPort 1.2 standard, the QXi-4000 is capable of daisy-chaining multiple monitors from a single DisplayPort cable, which has the benefit of simplifying cabinet wiring looms.

Quixant’s innovative QXi-4000 system design combines energy-efficient components with intelligent heat dissipation and cooling techniques integrated into the enclosure design to enable fan-less operation and reduce the need for extensive cooling arrangements in the slot machine cabinet.

The QXi-4000 also integrates dedicated PCI Express gaming features, including high-speed digital I/O, non-volatile RAM, audio amplifier, hardware nine-bit serial port support and in-built security functions. These features are made easily accessible to game software developers through Quixant’s extensive range of documentation, device drivers, libraries and gaming protocols, and it has also been designed to take full advantage of the latest 64-bit operating systems.

The QXi-4000 is also designed to operate from the main cabinet 12V PSU, eliminating the extra expense and reliability issues normally associated with the multi-voltage “ATX style” PSUs usually required for PC-based platforms.

Quixant offers a guaranteed five-year supply from launch of each product. The QXi-4000 gaming controller has been designed to be compliant with regulations in all major jurisdictions worldwide (including Nevada) minimizing the time required for customers to obtain regulatory approvals.
