New SBC introduced for high performance in edge computing

11-03-2024 | FORTEC United Kingdom | Industrial

FORTEC Integrated offers the new IB961 SBC from iBASE. It is equipped with powerful Raptor Lake Intel Core processors, offering 4 to 6 performance cores and 4 to 8 efficiency cores depending on the version.

Thomas Schrefel, product manager of Embedded at FORTEC Integrated/Distec, explained: "In this hybrid architecture, the E-cores handle system tasks efficiently, while the powerful P-cores are only activated when high computing power is required. This creates a highly efficient platform for applications such as onboard computers, infotainment, or vehicle control systems."

The SBC also finds diverse applications in industrial automation and medical and laboratory technology.

With up to 32GB DDR5 SO-DIMM memory and Hyper-Threading, the SBC processes more information in less time. Its versatile interfaces make it a true all-rounder: Up to four displays can be easily controlled through two DisplayPort 1.2, one LVDS, and one eDP interface. Six USB ports allow for easy connection of additional peripherals, such as touchscreens. Two 2.5Gbit/s LAN interfaces and three M.2 (M-Key, E-Key, B-Key) slots provide optimal connectivity options and a basis for Wi-Fi and 5G communication.

The SBC's high flexibility for versatile applications is complemented by a wide input voltage range of 12V to 24V and an operating temperature range of 0C to 60C.
