The latest platforms from Advantech, based on the 4th generation Intel Core U processors, are now available from Rutronik. They have been designed to offer high graphics and low power and the new platforms include: Computer On Modules, Single Board Computers, Industrial Motherboards and Fanless Embedded Box PCs.
The 4th generation Intel Core U processors come with improvements in CPU processing, graphics and security capabilities. The product line, including i7/i5/i3 processors and Celeron, is a 1-chip BGA (Ball Grid Array) chipset that integrates CPU and PCH, resulting in a low Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 15W. The new platform also supports improved GT3 graphics for 24% better 3D media and display performance compared to the previous generation platforms. Its low power, low profile design structure allows system integrators to build compact systems more easily without heat limitation problems.
To meet such requirements, Advantech has developed a series of industrial-grade embedded boards and systems such as the COM Express Compact module SOM-6894, the 3.5″” MI/O Extension Single Board Computer MIO-527, the Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard AIMB-230 and the slim fanless Embedded Box PC ARK-1550. The platforms are intended for portable, battery-operated applications with high graphic requirements, such as medical imaging, digital signage and gaming.
