3.5-inch motherboard drive IIoT and M2M applications

A fanless, 3.5-inch embedded motherboard powered by the Intel Celeron processor J1900 quad-core or J1800 dual-core, has been announced by Axiomtek.

The CPU is located at the rear side of the CAPA84R motherboard, which aids the heat-extraction process, says Axiomtek, and simplifies maintenance procedures. The embedded board has a wide operating temperature range of -20 to +70 degrees C.

The CAPA84R can be expanded for industrial IoT (IIoT) and M2M-related applications. It supports one 204-pin DDR3L-1333 SO-DIMM socket with up to 8Gbyte of system memory. There are also one SATA-300 port and one M.2 Key B supporting SATA for storage. The 3.5-inch embedded SBC has Intel integrated Gfx graphics to bring a true high definition visual experience with dual display configurations through the DisplayPort, 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS and VGA.

The industrial-grade CAPA84R provides computing capability, graphics and low power consumption to serve the needs of diverse industrial IoT applications, says Axiomtek. It can also be used for digital signage or infotainment systems. The motherboard also has three Gigabit Ethernet ports and one USB 3.0 port which support industrial cameras for machine vision applications.

The CAPA84R’s I/O interfaces include two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, three Gigabit Ethernet ports with Intel Ethernet controller i211-AT, one RS-232/422/485 port, one RS-232 port, HD Codec audio port and eight-in/out DIO port. The CAPA84R is expandable with one M.2 Key E connector supporting PCIe x1 interface for Wi-Fi modules and one M.2 Key B connector supporting USB 2.0 interface for cellular modules. The embedded single board computer (SBC) also uses its watchdog timer and hardware monitoring for reliable operation.

The CAPA84R runs on 12V DC power, supporting auto power-on function.

The CAPA84R will be available in March, 2019.
