Advantech AIMB-216 Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard
Advantech has announced the AIMB-216, an industrial-grade Thin Mini-ITX motherboard. With Intel Pentium/Celeron N3710/N3160/N3010 processor support, plus the latest Intel 14 nm technology, it offers significant CPU and graphics performance improvements with low power consumption (CPU TDP is only 4–6 W).
The product is fanless and designed with a low-profile I/O to offer high performance with low power consumption. It comes with high connectivity and multiple high-speed I/O, including dual GbE LAN ports, 4 x USB 3.0, 6 x USB 2.0 and 2 x SATAIII. For expansion, it supports 1 x PCIex1, 1 x M.2 (B key) and 1 x full-size MiniPCIe (with PCIe and USB signals) for flexible modular add-on card installation. It additionally supports 6 x COM (COM3 supports RS232/422/485 auto-flow control, COM6 supports 5/12 V), which benefits users who want to connect devices without additional external power supplies and those needing data transfers over long distances. Furthermore, the device accommodates both ATX 12 V and DC-IN power. These features make it suitable for low-power industrial applications such as panel PCs, PIS (passenger information systems), small kiosks and entry-level medical systems which require power-efficient and space-saving solutions.
The product integrates an Intel Gen 8 graphics engine, which improves throughput, media acceleration, display resolution (3840x2160) and additional media codecs and improved media acceleration compared with previous iterations. It supports the H.265 HW decoder that delivers stunning graphics and media performance and includes DirectX11, OpenCL1.2 and OpenGL4.2. In addition, it supports rich display output with HDMI1.4 (or dual-channel 24-bit LVDS), Displayport 1.1 (or eDP) and DVI-D for multiple display capability. It also supports up to three independent display outputs and up to 4K2K resolution support for HDMI/DP, which makes it suitable for gaming and digital signage customers who require a slim solution with high-resolution graphics.
The product bundles with Advantech’s IoT software WISE-PaaS/RMM, which constantly monitors the health of multiple devices and sends out alarm notifications via email and SMS if any system faults occur. It also provides remote device management and system recovery powered by Acronis, plus system protection powered by McAfee.
