Latest Mini-ITX board offers enhanced processing and graphics display in an ultra-compact, scalable system
San Jose, CA – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud- based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), introduces the AmITX-SL-G, a compact embedded computing platform equipped with high-performance, low-power 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors. The AmITX-SL-G design follows the Form, Fit, Function principle for scalable development, reducing time-to-market for embedded applications.
The latest Mini-ITX combines the new 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors and Intel® Q170/H110 chipsets with one of the industry’s most versatile form factors. The result is a space-saving, entry-level embedded board with higher processing speeds, faster graphics rendering, and up to 32 GB of memory for infotainment, industrial, and medical applications.
“We’re confident that by keeping pace with Intel’s processor roadmap in our Mini-ITX platform, we put best-in-market technology in the hands of our customers, packaged with a design that suits their needs,” said Henk Van Bremen, senior director of the ADLINK Module Computing Product Segment.
In the AmITX-SL-G, the 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor supports up to 32 GB of dual channel non-ECC DDR4 memory at 1867 MHz, doubling the memory capacity while reducing the footprint of previous models. With the Intel® Q170 and H110 chipsets and HD Iris™ Pro graphics, the processor offers faster 3D imaging and video conferencing, ultra HD/4K resolution across three display ports for medical-grade images, and low-power transcoding for HEVC/H.265, VP8, VP9, and VDENC formats.
The Mini-ITX form factor is the smallest in the ITX inventory. At only 170 mm square and approximately 35 mm thick, its small size is ideal for a self-service kiosk, on-display mount, stand-alone gaming system, or any limited-space application. ADLINK embedded boards also follow the form, fit, function design principle: board designs feature a layout consistent for connector and pinout locations, allowing easy upgrades with no need to modify the enclosure or cabling. The Mini-ITX remains compatible with Micro-ATX and regular ATX chassis to offer scalability for later development.
With extensive I/O options, The AmITX-SL-G embedded board serves as an ideal base for a scalable system. External connectors include dual GbE ports, four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, HD audio I/O, and three display ports. Internal connectors include three SATA 6 Gbps ports, display-optional LVDS/eDP, and a feature header with 10 GPIO, SMBus, and I2C support. PCIe expansion is available through a Gen3 PCIe x16 slot, one single-lane PCIe, and two mini-PCIe slots with support for mSATA.
The AmITX-SL-G embedded board is equipped with ADLINK’s Smart Embedded Management Agent (SEMA) to provide detailed system data at the device level, including temperature, voltage, power consumption, and other key information. Access to system activities allows operators to identify inefficiencies and malfunctions in real-time, thus preventing failures and minimizing downtime. ADLINK's SEMA-equipped devices connect seamlessly to the SEMA Cloud to enable remote monitoring. All collected data, including sensor measurements and management commands, is accessible from any place, at any time through an encrypted connection. In addition, the board offers the enhanced security capabilities of the Intel® Q170 and H110 chipsets, including new AES instructions, faster encryption, and the Intel® Software Guard Extension and Memory Protection.
