Thin Mini-ITX motherboard supports 8th gen Intel Core processors

The latest desktop Thin Mini-ITX industrial motherboard from Advantech supports 8th generation Intel Core processors, with up to six cores. There is also Intel’s 9th generation graphics engine for video acceleration, adds Advantech.

The AIMB-286 uses the Intel H310 chipset that has a thin, flat design of just 25mm. It is bundled with Advantech’s smart software suite WISE-PaaS/RMM for cloud computing. The AIMB-286 can be used for industrial applications such as machine control and self-service machine systems that increase operation efficiency.

The AIMB-286 Thin Mini-ITX builds on the standard Mini-ITX form factor and offers multiple expansion interfaces including an M.2 B key for 4G/LTE connectivity or storage, M.2 E key for WiFi connectivity. It also supports three GbE LAN, eight USB (four USB3.0 + four USB2.0), and one single PCIex4 slot which allows the installation of different modular add-on cards. This is particularly useful in factory automation, machine vision and robotics where multiple video cameras connections are required for video capture, object detection and examination.

AIMB-286 also supports six COM (COM2/3 supports RS-232/422/485 auto-flow control, COM 1 supports 5.0/12V), and 16-bit digital programmable I/O, which allows connectivity for peripherals modules and for multiple I/O programming.

Compatible with THIN 1U Chassis EPC-T2000/EPC-T3000

Two Thin enclosures are also available from Advantech to fit the AIMB-286. The EPC-T2000 and EPC-T3000 are durable, reliable Thin system solutions of only 1U height (44mm) developed specifically for industrial use. They are designed for embedded applications requiring a ready-to-use slim box with powerful computing and high graphics capabilities. The EPC-T3000 allows installation of one full-height PCIe add-on card, offering flexible expansion for space-limited applications.
