Advantech 3.5” Embedded SBC MIO-5251 with Flexible Expansions
August 20, 2015, Taipei– Advantech, a global leader in embedded computing, is pleased to announce the release of MIO-5251. Utilizing Intel's latest quad core Celeron J1900 2.0GHz processor, with even the same CPU performance as 3rd generation Core i3, MIO-5251 is positioned best choice between previous generation Atom and Core i platforms. More than a standard SBC, Advantech MIO-5251 in a 3.5” MI/O Extension (146 x 102 mm) form factor offers wide temperature operation from -40 to 85 °C in fanless design, flexible display interface combinations(HDMI/DP, LVDS, VGA, eDP), rich serial interfaces of up to 2 x RS-232 and 2 x RS-232/422/485, with two full-size mini PCIe slots, and a MIOe expansion slot for flexible deployment that helps you reach vertical market faster.
Quad Core Performance with Low Profile Fanless Heatsink
Intel quad core Celeron J1900 CPU's performance is even the same as the 3rd generation core i i3-3217UE. MIO-5251 uses a very low profile fanless heatsink that the total height including heatsink is 27.4mm only. Additionally, Advantech offers a heat spreader solution (2mm thinner than a regular heatsink) that contributes more compact chassis designs with better thermal dissipation. To meet different power input type requirements, MIO-5251 support a 2x2 pin ATX power connector or DC/Jack as rear I/O. If 12-24V or 9-36V wide range power input is needed, Advantech's MIOe-PWR1/ MIOe-PWR2 power module with 2-pin Phoenix power connector can be optionally ordered.
Flexible Display Combination
MIO-5251's graphic performance is around 6~9 times than the previous generation of Atom with more complete graphic driver support on Win7. Advantech MIO-5251 has the most display combinations within a 3.5” small form factor: VGA, HDMI and dual channel 24-bit LVDS. Furthermore, dual channel LVDS can be switched to optional eDP that allows it to convert to DP via a cable. HDMI shares the same connector with DP to provide additional flexible rear I/O LCD panel choices. And if even these are not enough, the MIOe expansion slot can provide a 2nd LVDS/DP via Advantech's MIOe-230 display module.
Rich Expansion for Vertical Application
MIO-5251 adds two full-size Mini PCIe slots, one with PCIe and USB interfaces plus a SIM holder, and another with SATA and USB interfaces. They can be used to expand more I/O connectivity like 2-ch CANBus, parallel LPT, 1 or 2-port high speed serial, TTL, GbE, 2-ch SATA III, and 2-port USB 3.0 by miniPCIe modules. Also wireless WiFi, Bluetooth, and cellular connection and GPS Mini PCIe module expansion possibilities. More I/O interfaces can be supported from MIOe modules such as MIOe-210: 6-port COM, MIOe-220: 3-port GbE, MIOe-230: dual-ch 24-bit LVDS or DP, there are some more vertical MIOe modules like: MIOe-3680 2-port CANBus, MIOe-3674 4-port PoE, and MIOe-3810 multiple I/O (16-ch AI, 2-ch AO, 24-ch TTL DIO, 2-ch counter). Moreover, the MIOe expansion slot reserves PCIe, 3x USB2.0, DP, SMBus, LPC, audio and power for customized MIOe modules to keep your own know-how and advantage.
Real Industrial PC Grade’s Design and Service
Advantech has been focused on the IPC industry for over 30 years, we provide total solutions, one-stop shopping, complete technical, before/after-service and hardware/software add-on values. MIO-5251 supports Intel extended temperature series CPU E3845 and E3825, and has been designed for wide temperature operation of -40 to 85 °C and uses 100% solid capacitors, TG-170 PCB with high temperature durability, and long delamination durability. It uses industrial-grade power circuit design, strict power quality/signal intensity/environment verification, and 100% thermal shock sorting to ensure stability under any severe circumstances.
Advantech iManager & SUSIAccess ProvideManageability and Security
MIO-5251 has iManager embedded; this intelligent, self-management, cross platform firmware monitors system status for problems and takes action if anything is abnormal. Additionally, MIO-5251 includes Advantech’s remote management software SUSIAccess, which builds intelligent management functions into embedded computing applications, ensuring continuous system uptime, and reduced maintenance costs. SUSIAccess constantly monitors the health of multiple devices and sends out alarm notifications via e-mails and SMS messages if any abnormal situations occur. SUSIAccess also provides other powerful utilities such as System Recovery (powered by Acronis), System Protection (powered by McAfee) and Remote KVM, for protection against and recovery of possible system faults.
