Reliable, High-Performance 2.5” Single-Board Computer Enables Machine Vision for Smart Production

2015/10/14
Introduction
In response to global trends and demands for industrial automation, the use of machine vision technology and related applications is increasing rapidly worldwide.  In industrial manufacturing, quality control checks are crucial for assuring the final product quality. Previously, before the maturation of machine vision technology, quality control relied on human inspections. This increased the potential for errors resulting from operator fatigue and attention lapses due to the monotony of product testing. The subsequent introduction of machine vision technology to production lines has not only significantly increased production capacity, but also drastically reduced costs. These benefits have accelerated the adoption of machine vision technology for detection applications.
 
ApplicationRequirements
·         A platform with sufficient CPU and GPU computing performance
·         External interfaces for industrial cameras with sufficient bandwidth
·         Software library and interface for remote access applications
·         High reliability and long-term durability under high-speed operation
·         Product longevity support, including multi-year support and service
 
Outstanding CPU and Graphics Performance with Dual USB 3.0 Interfaces
MIO-2270 is equipped with an AMD® GX-415GA quad-core processor integrated with a Radeon™ HD8330E graphics controller. Compared to systems equipped with an Intel® Core™ i3 processor, MIO-2270 offers superior CPU and GPU computing performance. The system hardware is suitable for high-speed, high-resolution, and high-volume video capturing, satisfying the application requirements. Additionally, with USB 3.0, the system offers data transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps, surpassing the 480 Mbps provided by USB 2.0. This higher bandwidth supports 4608 x 3288 pixel resolution at 10 frames per second. With dual USB 3.0 interfaces, MIO-2270 also allows system integrators to connect multiple industrial cameras in diverse configurations.
 
 
Highly Reliable Design for Embedded Applications
For increased reliability and endurance in extreme environments, MIO-2270 complies with IEC standards for electrostatic discharge protection, ensuring 15kV air-gap protection for the COM port transceiver and 8kV contact protection for RS-232 pins. Featuring 100% solid capacitors with an exceptional mean time between failures, a TG-170-type PCB, and a transient voltage suppressor for electrostatic discharge/electrical fast transient power protection, MIO-2270 is a well-designed and reliable single-board computer that can withstand high operating temperatures.
 
Industrial Cloud Computing Client with WISE-PaaS/RMM
MIO-2270 supports industrial cloud-based services and platforms, such as Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/RMM remote maintenance platform with active management capabilities developed for monitoring connected intelligent systems. Using software programs stored in an industrial cloud, users can remotely identify equipment malfunctions, conduct real-time maintenance, and ensure enhanced security, significantly improving operational efficiency and reducing time and personnel demands. WISE-PaaS/RMM facilitates the use of powerful utilities, such as System Recovery powered by Acronis, for preventing system failures and enabling system recovery.
