The newest addition to BVM Limited’s extensive portfolio of industrial grade Mini-ITX embedded SBCs is the very powerful and fully-featured LV-67W, which is based on Intel’s latest 8th Generation 14nm Coffee Lake H Series Core i7/i5/i3 processors in the FCBGA1440 socket. The i5 and i7 versions feature six-core processors, offering 12 threads for applications such as retail transaction terminals kiosks, digital signage, smart cities and healthcare where high-performance processing and graphics are needed. Based on the QM70 chipset, the processors provide higher CPU and graphics performance than the previous 7th generation with a TDP rating of just 45W. Up to 32GB of DDR4 memory can be fitted.

The integrated UHD Graphics supports three independent displays with 4k resolution each, and comes with hardware-based video encoding and decoding up to 4k. It has VGA, LVDS, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs to give advanced solutions for machine vision, infotainment, imaging, medical and gaming machines.

High-speed data transfers are important attributes, with six native USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gb/s) ports, three SATAIII mass storage interfaces, two Gigabit LAN ports and six serial ports. Also provided are Realtek High Definition Audio, two 8bit GPIO ports, 2 x Mini PCIe, one supporting mSATA, a SIM slot and a PCIe X16 port. The LV-67W operates from 9V to 35VDC or an external ATX power supply.
