Advantech has launched three new embedded computing platforms featuring Intel Atom x6000 Series and Intel Pentium and Celeron N and J Series processors. These platforms - the company's SOM-2532 computer on module, AIMB-218 industrial motherboard and MIO-5152 3.5" single-board computer - offer the latest Intel processors and its own WISE-DeviceOn, an IoT device operations and management solution.


The devices offer advanced 10nm process semiconductors which improve computing performance and I/O throughput; yielding solutions appropriate for IoT-specific work tasks. Intel Atom x6000 Series and Intel Pentium and Celeron N and J Series Processors has boosted its CPU's performance up to 40% and two times in the GFX performance in comparison with its previous generation. The AIMB-218 supports a TDP range of 4.5W to 12W to fulfil customer demands for improved performance. The on-board storage (UFS) produces fast transfer speeds (up to 1200MB/s) and diverse I/O to support multiple peripherals on a single platform.


Similarly, the SOM-2532 offers onboard LPDDR4 3200Mt/s up to 16GB with IBECC. This design supports onboard UFS 2.0, dual GbE LAN with TSN PHY, 2x CAN FD, and 3x independent 4K displays. SOM-2532 is ideal for automation, medical, IoT edge and transportation applications. The embedded 3.5" single-board MIO-5152 equips with DDR4-3200 up to 32GB and provides rich I/O options like HDMI2.0/DP/LVDS, Dual GbE, 4x USB3.2, 4x USB2.0, 6x UARTs & TPM.


These new embedded computing platforms are an excellent fit for applications including IVD in the medical field, robot and HMI in the automation markets and diverse uses of instrument panels. These embedded boards satisfy needs to be the ideal core platform for real-time computing in retail, IoT edge, and transportation applications.
