Advantech announced a range of platforms based on 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors (formerly Skylake) including industrial motherboards, slot single-board computers (SBCs), modular IPCs, industrial serverboards, and transportation platforms.
With enhanced CPU performance, media and graphics capabilities, and security and power efficiency, these new platforms are ideal for powering intelligent systems designed for diverse markets, such as video surveillance, medical, industrial automation, gaming and transportation infrastructure.The main benefits of increased IoT adoption will enhance efficiency and reduce total cost of ownership. Advantech endeavors to promote this progress by designing products in accordance with the Intel® Intelligent Systems Framework. »To penetrate the global IoT market, Advantech is committed to developing platforms based on Intel® technology at every strategic point. Advantech has built a comprehensive portfolio of innovative solutions, ranging from high performance industrial servers, edge computers, and modular industrial computers, through to vertically focused transportation systems and intelligent video solutions.
We not only have strong design capabilities and industry-proven success, but also provide flexible and dynamic customization (design-to-order) and local system integration (configure-to-order) services to cope with rapidly evolving technologies. The products launched today all serve as catalysts for converting massive volumes of data from numerous sources into value-added information,» said Linda Tsai, Associate Vice President of Advantech´s Intelligent Systems Group.
“Intel has partnered with Advantech to develop a broad range of exciting products to build tomorrow’s IoT devices today”, said Samuel Cravatta, product line director, Internet of Things Group, Intel. “The enhanced graphics and compute performance, power efficiency, and new features provided by 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors are built into Advantech’s latest products, and we are confident this cutting-edge lineup will enable their customers to build a wide range of solutions to meet any IOT application.”
6th Gen Intel® Core™ Technology Advances Intelligent System SolutionsUsing 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5 processors and the Intel® Q170 chipset, Advantech has designed several industrial-grade boards (PCE-5129, PCE-5029, AIMB-785 and AIMB-705) in the form factors PICMG 1.3 SBC and ATX.
Also based on a 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor chipset, Advantech has developed modular IPCs MIC-7500, AIIS-3400, AIIS-3410, and AIIS-5410 for the machine automation market. With the successful deployment of intelligent rolling stock systems, ITA-5231 and ITA-5831 were developed to substantially enhance the performance of passenger information systems, media broadcasting, and in-train surveillance applications while consuming less power.
Advantech has also incorporated an Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v5 series and Intel® C236 chipsets into its new PICMG 1.3 SBC, PCE-7129, and server-grade motherboards, ASMB-585 and ASMB-785. Equipped with an upgraded processor and DDR4 memory support, these devices can easily deliver increased computing efficiency for applications that require high-performance computing. Regarding ASMB-785, the embedded quad LAN, onboard BMC connector, and IPMI-1000 (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) extension module provide out-of-band remote management, real-time and centralized management, and KVM over IP remote control functionalities along with user-friendly interfaces and utilities.
