Advantech Intensifies Embedded Computing Performance with 14th Gen Intel® Core™ Desktop Processors.
Taipei, February, 2024 - Advantech, a global leader in Embedded-IoT, is proud to announce the launch of a new series of embedded boards and edge intelligence systems based on 14th Gen Intel® Core™ Desktop Processors. This lineup includes a wide array of form factors such as Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards, 4" EPIC Single Board Computers, and edge intelligence systems. These offerings deliver enhanced computing power and optimal performance per watt, catering to diverse and demanding applications such as medical, AGV/AMR, industrial automation, self-service kiosks, and edge AI.
Next-Level Performance with the Latest CPUs and Graphics
The 14th Gen Intel® Core™ Desktop Processors are available in Core i9, i7, i5, and i3, supporting up to 24 cores/32 threads, 192GB of DDR5-5600 memory, and 35W-65W power bases with their newest performance hybrid architecture. This architecture combines performance-cores and efficient-cores, bringing outstanding workload optimization at the edge.
Additionally, Intel® UHD Graphics 770, driven by Xe Architecture, offers up to 32 GFX EUs, and the Core i9 processor supports up to 36MB Shared Intel® Smart L3 Cache, enabling performance scalability and superior visual output across up to four independent 4K displays. If 3D graphics HW acceleration is needed, DX12 and OpenGL 4.6 on Windows or Linux are also supported. These features make Advantech’s solutions perfectly suited to industrial applications that require parallel visual computing to accelerate AI workload processing.
Our embedded solutions, powered by 14th Gen Intel® Core™ Desktop Processors and Intel® 600 Series Chipsets, boast a motherboard with a PCIe x16 Gen5 (32GT/s) slot. This slot is designed to accommodate a powerful GPU card for intensive graphics processing tasks. Furthermore, the inclusion of multiple 2.5GbE, TSN, and USB 3.2 Gen2 (10Gbps) ports facilitates high-speed data transmission and device communication.
Enable Edge Computing Applications with the Total Solution Lineup
Advantech’s solutions, built on the 14th Gen Intel® Core™ Desktop Processor, cater to diverse application needs with a comprehensive range of offerings. The AIMB-588 (Micro-ATX) stands out with numerous expansion slots and I/O ports, delivering peak functionality and performance. The AIMB-279 (Mini-ITX) is the smallest standard motherboard supporting a PCIe x16 slot, while the AIMB-288E integrates an MXM GPU in a 1U THIN form factor. For space-constrained applications, the MIO-4370 (4" EPIC Single Board Computer) is designed with dual 2.5GbE with TSN and a diverse set of I/O ports.
In addition to boards, Advantech offers edge intelligence systems that are ready to deploy. The AIR-310, with its discrete GPU, can be easily integrated into space-limited applications, while the ARK-3534, a high-performance, multi-functional edge computer, offers diverse I/O that can connect up to 25 external devices for applications such as AI vision, motion, data acquisition, and I/O cards.
Accelerate Deployment via Design-In Services and 24/7 Management
With 40 years of experience dedicated to industrial computer design, Advantech’s design-in service seeks to address the technical requirements of IoT solution developers. This service comprises a series of hardware and software add-on services to help developers integrate their systems and reduce time-to-market.
The operating system plays a crucial role in getting hardware set up. In addition to Ubuntu, we are also looking forward to the arrival of the latest OS—Windows 11 IoT Enterprise LTSC, which realizes CPU workload optimization and performance via P-cores and E-cores. Relevant software support is also critical. Advantech Device On, an intelligent networking solution for remote device monitoring and predictive maintenance, ensures stable operation and convenient remote management for IoT devices. Edge AI SDK, an all-in-one software package that simplifies the initiation of AI implementation, and Intel OpenVINO™ are also supported. Intel also provides SDKs to improve performance and lower development costs.
