Advantech Introduces First Low-Power, Ultra-Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard Supporting Independent Three Displays Intel® Pentium® / Celeron®

Taipei, January 3, 2017 – Advantech, a leader in embedded computing and smart applications, is pleased to announce the launch of an industrial-grade ultra-thin fanless Mini-ITX motherboard: AIMB-216. This product is powered by Intel® PenTIum® and Celeron® N3710/N3160/N3010 series processors and is bundled with Advantech's own WISE-PaaS/RMM software suite for remote management and security features required for IoT and embedded applications. The AIMB-216 uses the latest Intel 14nm technology to significantly reduce CPU and graphics performance while reducing power consumption (CPU TDP is only 4~6W), thus becoming a tablet, digital signage player, ATM/KIOSK, gaming, medical and transportation. The perfect choice for many low-power applications such as the field.

Rich I/O connectivity in ultra-thin fanless design for flexible embedded applications

The AIMB-216 ultra-thin Mini-ITX motherboard features a fanless and half-height I/O design that boosts performance while reducing power consumption. The product is highly connected with a rich set of high-speed I/O interfaces including: dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, 4 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x SATAIII. In terms of scalability, the AIMB-216 offers 1 x PCIex1, 1 x M.2 (B key) and 1 x full-length MiniPCIe (supporting PCIe and USB signals), thus providing flexible support for modular expansion card installation. Its 6 COM ports (COM 3 supports RS-232/422/485 automatic flow control, COM 6 is 5V/12V live) allows users to connect devices without additional external power supply and achieve reliable long-distance data transmission. In addition, the AIMB-216 supports both ATX 12V and DC-IN power supplies, reducing the total cost of the solution. Combining all of these advantages, the AIMB-216 is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of low-power industrial applications, including tablets, PIS (passenger information systems), small KIOSKs, and entry-level medical systems that focus on improving power efficiency and saving space.

Independent three display, showing excellent image processing capabilities

The AIMB-216 integrates with the Intel Gen 8 graphics engine, which not only improves processing power and display resolution (3840x2160), but also features additional media encoders, and its media acceleration performance is a significant improvement over the previous generation of iterative methods. As the first low-power Mini-ITX motherboard to support the H.265 HW decoder, the AIMB-216 has outstanding graphics and media processing capabilities and supports DirectX11, OpenCL1.2 and OpenGL4.2. In addition, its HDMI1.4 (or dual 24-bit LVDS), Displayport 1.1 (or eDP) and DVI-D enable rich display output and multi-display performance. The AIMB-216 also supports independent three-display output and 4K2K resolution for HDMI/DP, so it can perfectly match the application needs of gaming and digital signage customers, namely: a high graphics resolution and support for independent three-display output. Ultra-thin solution.

Built-in intelligent remote management and value-added software

AIMB-216 is bundled with Advantech's proprietary IoT software WISE-PaaS/RMM, which provides an intelligent and value-added software architecture that continuously monitors the operational status of multiple devices and sends alert notifications via email and SMS messages in the event of a system failure. This product also supports Acronis remote device management and system recovery functions, as well as McAfee system protection features to ensure reliable system operation.

In addition, Advantech will launch the WISE-PaaS Marketplace (online software shopping site) to provide customers with a wide range of IoT cloud services, security services, WISE-PaaSWISE-PaaS software services and IoT solutions that integrate IoT cloud solutions. Package to accelerate the transformation of customer business.

l Support synchronous three display: HDMI (or LVDS), Displayport (or eDP), DVI-D

l Rich I/O & expansion options: 4 x USB 3.0, 6 x USB 2.0, 2 x SATAIII, 6 x COM ports, 1 PCIe x1, 1 Mini PCIe slot (F/S) and 1 M.2 (B Key, type: 2242, 2280) and 8-bit GPIO.

l Embedded "WISE-PaaS/RMM" software suite

AIMB-216 is available now. For more information, please contact your Advantech local sales office or visit the Advantech website:

Polymer Lithium Battery

A lithium polymer battery, or more correctly lithium-ion polymer battery (abbreviated as LiPo, LIP, Li-poly, lithium-poly and others), is a rechargeable battery of lithium-ion technology using a polymer electrolyte instead of a liquid electrolyte. High conductivity semisolid (gel) polymers form this electrolyte.High power. Both lithium-ion and lithium-poly batteries are suitable with high and robust power usages. However, lithium-ion batteries are more efficient and popular than lithium-polymer.Many manufacturers have stated that their LiPo batteries will last 2 or 3 years. This is a somewhat realistic approximation for a scenario where a battery is regularly used and charged around 2 or 3 times a week.Lithium polymer batteries could potentially be dangerous. ... However, if care is taken to store the batteries properly, Lithium batteries shouldn't be very dangerous at all. Additionally, Lithium polymer batteries should be even safer than traditional Lithium batteries.Lithium Polymer batteries are perhaps the most hazardous parts we deal with on a day to day basis when it comes to our miniquads. This is both because of their propensity to explode into a small fireball when mistreated and because of the massive amount of power they are capable of dumping out of their terminals.
