Embedded computing modules bring efficiency and security to IoT
Computing modules based on the latest Intel Atom processor E3900 series, Intel Celeron processor N3350 and Intel Pentium processor N4200 (formerly Apollo Lake) have been announced by Advantech.
The boards are available in a range of form factors, including the Qseven SOM-3569, the COM Express Compact Module SOM-6869, and the COM Express Mini Module SOM-7569. There is also the 2.5inch Pico-ITX SBC MIO-2360, the 3.5inch SBC MIO-5350, and PCM-9366, the EBX SBC PCM-9563, the Mini-ITX Motherboard AIMB-217, the IoT Gateway System UTX-3117, and the Fanless Embedded Box PCs ARK-1124, and ARK-2231R
The complete product line-up will be available in 2017 Q1 to Q2
Based on Intel’s 14nm tri-gate process with the Goldmont microarchitecture, the latest Atom, Celeron and Pentium processor SoCs bring compute performance, security, and powerful media processing performance to embedded computing systems. Enhancements include up to 30 per cent computing and graphics performance, and up to 15 per cent increase in battery life.
With the latest Intel processors and the company’s WISE-PaaS integrated IoT platform software services, the modules bring efficiency, security, and connectivity to embedded computing, says the company, for IoT, retail, industrial automation, digital surveillance, medical and more.
The embedded boards and systems are equipped with multiple OS, value-added software, and built-in WISE-PaaS, an integrated IoT platform software service for remote management, system security, and pre-configured cloud services. The software service is partnered with Microsoft Azure to allow seamless hardware and software integration and analytic tools for data analysis. The company has also announced plans for WISE-PaaS Marketplace, an online software shopping website, to provide IoT cloud services, security services, WISE-PaaS software services, and IoT solution packages integrated with IoT cloud solutions.
