The solution is the first Arm-based SBC and BOX PC to support the H.265 HW decoder, delivering 4K @ 60 FPS via HDMI 2.0 at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz for stunning graphics and an excellent user experience. The solution also supports dual-channel 18/24/30-bit LVDS and VGA for multi-display capability, with two independent display outputs for a combination of HDMI+VGA, HDMI+LVDS, or VGA+LVDS.
Rich I/O Interface for Flexible Extension Options
The RSB-4680 and EPC-R4680 offer multiple I/O options, including 5 x USB 2.0, 1 x OTG, 6 x COM, 8 x GPIOs, and 1 x Gigabit Ethernet ports. They also support wireless connectivity, including 1 x M.2 E-key slot for Wi-Fi/BT modules and 1 x mini PCIe for 3G/4G modules. Collectively, these features make the RSB-4680 and EPC-R4680 suitable for all kinds of applications, especially for kiosks, POS, and vending machines, which need to connect to many devices (e.g., printers, scanner, card readers).
For software support, the RSB-4680
provide different layers of software services to assist customers during the application design phase. The RSB-4680
support Android 6.0 and come bundled with an evaluative Android image, and provide a complete board support package (BSP) to help users develop their own applications. The BSP comes with source code examples and tools for testing and evaluation and for setting up dual independent displays and touch operation. The solution is also bundled with Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/RMM software suite, which offers remote management and security features. This smart software boosts the performance and value of IoT applications from the edge to the cloud.
