Advantech upgrades ESBCs for edge AI and industry
Advantech’s range of embedded single board computers (ESBCs) are now equipped with 13th generation Intel Core processors, Intel Core mobile processors and Intel Processor N series. These new processors will bring significant performance enhancements to the SBCs, said Advantech. They are suitable for use in smart factories, machine automation, machine vision, transportation, medical, retail, and edge AI applications.
Intel’s latest processors will be integrated into three products across 2.5-inch (pico-ITX) 3.5-inch and four-inch ESBCs and launches from Q3 2023 to Q1 2024. This will improve application efficiency in intelligent factories, retail, healthcare, and energy management, said Advantech.
The new processors will increase single-thread performance by up to 1.04x, multi-thread performance by up to 1.34x, and CPU image classification inferencing performance by up to 1.25x compared to 12th Gen Intel Core processors.
The MIO-2364 2.5-inch Pico-ITX SBC will be equipped with the Intel Processor N-series. It has dual independent display (LVDS and HDMI), GbE (optional PoE/PD, 802.3at), four USB, a COM, and SMBus / I2C ports, with M.2 E-Key and M.2 B-Key expansion options. It supports iManager and software APIs and WISE-DeviceOn.
The MIO-5377R will feature the 13th Gen Intel Core processor with up to 14 cores and TDP of 28/15W. It has four simultaneous displays: LVDS / HDMI / DP / USB-C and two LAN, eight USB (including one USB4), four UART, two CANBus and three I2C ports. There are also M.2 E-Key, B-Key and M-Key (which supports NVMe) options. The SBC supports Windows 10 LTSC and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, embedded software APIs and WISE-DeviceOn.
The third SBC is the MIO-4370, a four-inch ESBC which will feature the 13th Gen Intel Core processor. This model is scalable with socket type CPU (LGA1700) and support for a standard CPU cooler. It has DDR5 4800 up to 32Gbyte and three simultaneous displays (dual HDMI+eDP). There is also dual high speed 2.5G Ethernet with TSN, two COM, CANbus and TPM and three expansion options of dual M.2 M-Key (with support for NVMe) and M.2 E-Key. This ESBC also supports Windows 10 LTSC & Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, embedded software APIs and WISE-DeviceOn.
