Mini-ITX product line follows strict form, fit, function design principle
San Jose, CA – ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), is now offering a series of new Mini-ITX computing platforms that are ready-for-use as commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions for infotainment (gaming/retail), medical, and industrial automation applications that require rich I/O options and high performance graphics capabilities.
The high performance Mini-ITX boards are based on both 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 desktop processors and AMD® Embedded Second Generation R-Series APUs. These high-end boards specifically target the infotainment and industrial automation markets. Boards come with unique hardware features, such as support for both a PEG x16 card slot and an additional PCIe x1 I/O card slot. Additional features include a removable BIOS chip, a vertical USB port for security dongles, and SATA docking sockets to accommodate SATA-DOM (disk-on-module). All boards feature dual power inputs that allow for use of either a single 12V-DC power supply or a standard ATX power supply. The boards further offer up to four serial ports (RS232/422/485) and multiple USB 2.0/3.0 ports.
Entry level Mini-ITX boards are based on the latest Intel® Atom™ processor roadmap and mainly focus on industrial automation and medical applications. These Intel® Atom™ processor-based Mini-ITX boards are also available in Extreme Rugged versions for operation in -40°C to +85°C environment.
“All of ADLINK’s Mini-ITX boards follow a strict form, fit, function principle. When a customer wants to move to a newer generation Mini-ITX board in the future, there is no need to modify existing enclosures and cabling, saving time and resources and reducing solution cost,” explained Bob Dang, product manager for Mini-ITX in ADLINK’s Module Computing Product Segment.
ADLINK’s new series of Mini-ITX platforms follows our proven industrial design process, including Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT), extended operating temperature, MIL-STD, and shock & vibration. ADLINK’s Mini-ITX boards are offered with a seven year product availability.
All of ADLINK’s Mini-ITX boards come equipped with SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent), enabling on-premises management and control of distributed devices. ADLINK's SEMA-equipped devices connect seamlessly to our SEMA Cloud solution to enable remote monitoring, autonomous status analysis, custom data collection, and initiation of appropriate actions. All collected data, including sensor measurements and management commands, are available through a web interface or via API from any place, at any time via encrypted data connection.
