27.7mm THIN Mini-ITX with 5th Generation Intel® Core™ i Processor for Space-limited Embedded Applications

June 8, 2015, Taipei--Advantech, the embedded platform and integration services provider, announces the introduction of a new industrial-grade THIN Mini-ITX motherboard, AIMB-231, supporting the latest Intel Core™ i5-5350U and Intel Core™i3 5010U 5th generation processors with BGA1168 (MCP) socket. AIMB-231 is a low profile Mini-ITX design of only 27.7mm in height with a rich variety of I/O functions to fulfill an assortment of space-limited applications. AIMB-231 can be applied in many embedded applications such as slim signage boxes, slim panel PCs, vending machines, nursing carts,small POS systems, and portable media devices.
Thin Design and Rich I/O Interface for Best Performance and Space Usage
AIMB-231 incorporates the next-generation, Intel 5th Gen Core i processor architecture, which supports a dual-core single-chip processor (MCP) with best-in-class energy saving. Only 27.7mm in height, AIMB-231 offers a variety of I / O connections including: DP / HDMI, 1 x DP + +, LVDS/eDP, 4 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, 3 x SATA III, 1 x mSATA co-lay SIM card holder, 2 x Serial slots, 8-bit GPIO, 2 x Mini PCIe expansion slots, and two Intel LAN sockets. AIMB-231 also integrates a 3D GT3/GT2 graphics chipset which provides high-quality, high-resolution three-screen output (DP / HDMI, DP + +, LVDS / eDP), coupled with HD Audio codec support.
Thin Design for Flexible Embedded Integration
AIMB-231’s thin design provides a high degree of flexibility and allows the system to be easily integrated into low-profile enclosures and 1U enclosures such as Advantech's AIMB-B1000 series and AIMB-T1000 for a wide range of applications. Optional fanless heat sinks,or a standard CPU cooler from Advantech are also available for passive cooling solutions.
Built-in intelligent Manageability Powered by SUSIAccess
AIMB-231 comes embedded with SUSI4.0, an intelligent self-management firmware agent, which gives applications smart self-control, resource management, and auto-protection features to enhance security and system reliability, and simplify integration and configuration.
AIMB-231 also bundles with Advantech SUSIAccess which provides remote device management and system recovery powered by Acronis, and system protection powered by McAfee; allowing users to easily monitor, configure, control, and even recover multiple systems through a single console from a remote site.
Integrated Intelligent Software API
Advantech provides drivers and APIs (SUSI 4.0) including GPIO, SMBus, watchdog timer, hardware monitor, panel backlight on/off, and brightness control. Supported operating systems include Windows 8, WES 8,Windows 7, WES 7, and Linux—hardware drivers for these OS are readily available.
AIMB-231 will be available by Q2 2015, for more information, please contact your Advantech local sales office or visit thewebsite.
