Embedded SBC offers flexibility and scalability in harsh environments
A 3.5-inch embedded SBC featuring the onboard quad-core Intel Atom x5-E3940 processor (codename: Apollo Lake) is Axiomtek’s latest entry to the market.
The fanless small form factor embedded board – the CAPA310 – has an extended operating temperature range of -40 degrees C to 80 degrees C and a power input of 12V to 24V DC.
There is one 204-pin DDR3L-1867 SO-DIMM slot for up to 8GB of system memory. It comes with one RS-232/422/485, one RS-232, two USB 2.0, four USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen1), two Gigabit LANs with Intel i211AT Ethernet controller, 8-channel digital I/O, and HD Codec audio.
In addition, the Intel Atom-based embedded SBC features one PCI express mini-card slot for various peripheral modules, such as wi-fi, 3G, 4G, LTE. The CAPA310 also has one SATA-600 socket and one mSATA interface for storage devices.
This embedded motherboard enhances its security and reliability with TPM 2.0 (optional), watchdog timer and hardware monitoring features.
“Axiomtek’s CAPA310 provides an enhanced, feature-rich and easy-to-deploy solution for varying embedded applications. It comes with a small form factor, lower power consumption CPU, fanless operation, high network connectivity, stunning graphical performance, and abundant I/O connectivity,” says Michelle Mi, a product manager in the product planning division at Axiomtek.
“To ensure flexible configuration and expandability, the CAPA310 has an emphasis on expandability with a full-size PCIe mini card slot and an optional ZIO connector for additional PCIe, LPC, USB and SMBus,” continues Mi. “Additionally, this compact embedded board features the Intel integrated Gfx graphic engine to deliver high-resolution HD support for display interfaces: HDMI, LVDS and optional VGA.”
The CAPA310 platform is designed for Industrial Internet of Things and intelligent systems such as industrial automation, self-service terminals, digital signage, POS/kiosk displays and medical.
