ADL Embedded Solutions announces SBC for industrial sector
The ADL120S single board computer (SBC) from ADL Embedded Solutions is based on Intel’s Q170 chipset and has scalable 6th and 7th generation Intel processors. The compact industrial SBC measures 120 x 120mm format and is designed for embedded applications in the industrial sector. The SBC has up to 32Gbyte DDR4 memory available as a compact SODIMM.
Other features of the ADL120S SBC include four Gigabit network interfaces, four SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, two M. 2 2280 Key-B interfaces with Intel RST RAID 0/1 (Intel Rapid Storage technology) support, and a mean time between failure (MTBF) of more than 200,000 hours. The SBC also has an ADL edge connect interface, which provides high-speed I/Os with up to eight PCIe 3.0 lanes on the bottom of the board.
ADL offers a standard cooling solution portfolio for the ADL120S that allows maintenance-free operation. Passive heatspreaders and heatpipes that are superior to conventional active cooling systems (cooling elements with fans) allow a working temperature range of -20 to +70 degree C as standard and optionally from -40 to +85 degree C with external cooling air supply.
Long product availability of more than 10 years and long-term support in the areas of firmware (BIOS), tools and drivers make the new SBC suitable for industrial applications with a long service life, believes ADL Embedded. The ADL120S SBC supports Microsoft desktop/enterprise and embedded operating systems of Windows 10 as well as current Linux LTS or Enterprise distributions (Debian/Ubuntu or RHEL).
The integrated graphics core GT2 – Intel’s HD Graphics 630 series with increased graphics performance from the 24 execution units and DDR4 dual-channel as host memory enables higher OpenCL computing performance for tasks that can be parallelised, advises ADL Embedded. This allows complex computational tasks such as high-resolution image and video processing in the field of industrial vision to be pre-processed on the respective signal acquisition IPCs or servers.
