Distec GmbH now supports visual industrial applications with its 3.5” single-board computer (SBC) 'IB918' from iBASE. The graphics board controls up to three displays.
“With a size of only 102mm x 147mm, the IB918 integrates the powerful AMD Ryzen V1000 embedded processor or its smaller companion R1000 for less challenging designs,” explained Thomas Schrefel, product manager embedded at Distec. “In addition to the high-performance graphics, demanding industrial applications benefit from its long-term availability and the solid design of the CPU board.”
The wide DC input range spans from 12V to 24V and allows temperatures from 0C to +60C. The SBC is, therefore, especially suited for medical imaging or industrial automation, which put high demands on the graphics performance.
To control up to three separate displays, the device provides various interfaces: an LVDS, an embedded eDP and two HDMI 2.0a with high resolution. Due to its additional interfaces, comprising four COM, four USB 3.1, a USB 2.0 and two M.2 expansion slots for 2280 Key M and 2230 Key E, the multi-display board is flexible to use. Two 260-pin SO-DIMM sockets for up to 32Gb DDR4 are provided for memory. For safety-critical applications, the SBC is equipped with TPM 2.0.
The SBC can be supplied as a display kit including TFT displays from AUO or Tianma in sizes of 7" to 24". Optionally, the company also provides the SBC as a solid embedded Box PC ASB200-918. As a total solution, it is completely preconfigured and immediately ready for plug and play. The fanless embedded Box PC is also offered in a slim design.
