Small form factor embedded board from Portwell targets medical and signage use
The latest embedded board from Portwell is equipped with Intel Celeron and Pentium processors for parallel computing and visual communications in digital signage, automation, medical and IoT applications.
The WUX-3350 is a small form factor (SFF) embedded system board featuring the Intel Celeron and Pentium processor series, formerly codenamed Apollo Lake. The processors integrate the low power Intel Gen9 graphics engine up to 18 execution units, enabling enhanced 3D graphics performance and greater speed for 4K encode and decode operations.
The low power consumption makes the WUX-3350 a building block for projects supporting visual communications and real-time computing applications in medical, digital surveillance, industrial automation, office automation and retail, says Portwell.
It is compact, measuring 101.6 x 101.6mm or four-inch xfour-inches.
It features DDR3L SO-DIMM up to 8.0Gbyte supporting 1866/1600 MT/s; six USB ports, one DisplayPort (DP) and one HDMI with resolution up to 4096 x 2160, one COM port for RS-232 on rear I/O (RJ45 connector); and multiple storage interfaces with one SATA III port, one microSD 3.0 socket and support for onboard eMMC 5.0 up to 64G.
The WUX-3350 also integrates the M.2 interface, which provides wireless connectivity including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, allowing communication and connectivity for IoT edge devices and designs.
The Portwell WUX-3350 delivers robust performance, yet it operates with thermal design power (TDP) under 6.0/10W for fanless applications. It also supports a wide voltage of power input from 12 to 19V for rugged applications.
There is up to quad-core processing power via the processors to execute applications from digital signage in public spaces (stadiums, museums, transportation systems, corporate buildings, healthcare facilities, retail stores, hotels, restaurants, and more), manufacturing robots and machinery transforming industrial automation, to video analytics-based appliances enhancing intelligent digital security and surveillance.
Portwell is an associate member of the Intel Internet of Things Solutions Alliance. The company designs and manufactures a range of IPC products (SBC, backplane, redundant power supply, rack mount and node chassis), embedded architecture solutions, DVR system platforms and communications appliances.
It also provides R&D and project management services. The ISO 13485, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified company deploys quality assurance through product design, verification and manufacturing cycles.
