Designed for semi-industrial use, Fujitsu's new extended lifecycle D3402-B and D3417-B mainboards are now available from Rutronik. They support the new, 6th-generation Intel Core processors and allow the use of DDR4 memory, that is characterized by a significant increase in performance. The 100er series of Intel chipsets enables the use of more powerful CPUs with a simultaneous reduction of power consumption. The boards D3402-B and D3417-B are designed for continuous use on a 24/7-operation and suitable for an ambient temperature of up to +50°C. The design is consistently created for stability and power efficiency as the boards are characterized by a smaller, but high quality components mounting density. Thereby, the power consumption is lowered, the installed components are less exposed to thermal stress and the life cycle is extended. Both mainboards support three digital video outputs, with two display ports of the version 1.2 allowing a 4K resolution at 60Hz. Another feature is the provision of a M.2 port, making it possible to omit a 2,5’-slot and the additional wiring for power supply and data lines. The D3402-B with the Intel Q170 chipset provides enhanced manageability with Intel® Active Management (iAMT) and vPro. It supports up to 64GB memory and has a multi-level watchdog function. The D3417-B with the Intel® C236 chipset allows the use of powerful XEON CPUs, which furthermore allow ECC (error correction code). Due to the increased number of SATA ports and XEON support, the Fujitsu D3417-B can be considered as an alternative to workstations or entry-level server. Both models belong to the same layout family and have an extended assured availability of three years. As the boards are part of the Extended Lifecycle Series, customers benefit from a strict lifecycle and revision management. The product safety is ensured by the CSA certification according to the standard 60 950. Due to this and the 24/7-operation, the continuous use, for example in high-availability application scenarios like emergency rooms and surgical areas, is allowed. Through its integration and expansion capabilities, e.g. by frame grabber or video cards, the models are suitable for imaging and visualization, necessary for 3D representations of data from different imaging methods such as CT, MIR and X-ray, says the company.
