June, 2022, Taipei, Taiwan - Advantech, a leading global provider of intelligent systems and industrial edge computers, is excited to announce a wave of upgrades in 2022. A wide range of its platforms including industrial ATX motherboards, industrial ATX/MicroATX server boards, and PICMG 1.3 Full-Size Single Board Computers (SBC) will be upgraded to the latest processor and chipset specifications. IPC systems including Modular IPC, Compact IPC and Edge Accelerator Servers will also be upgraded to 12th Gen. Intel® Core™ i9/i7/i5/i3 processors with up to 16 cores and 24 threads, which will significantly boost computing performance by up to 89%, according to a well-known CPU benchmark. These systems are ideal upgrades for smart factory and machine automation, machine vision, transportation, and edge AI applications.

The largest leap in Intel® Core™ Processor architecture and performance

12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors are the first Intel® Core™ processors to feature performance hybrid architecture, integrating up to eight performance-cores (P-cores) that enhance workload consolidation, and up to eight Efficient-cores (E-cores) that enhance background task management and multitasking. This will boost performance up to 1.36x times faster in single-thread performance and up to 1.35x times faster in multi-thread performance compared to 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. Moreover, 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors are also the first Intel® Core™ processor series that introduces support for up to DDR5-4800 memory modules (or DDR4-3200), leading to 50% bandwidth enhancement. In addition, the upgrade of PCIe 5.0/4.0 and more lanes increase the platform expansion possibilities and the ability to support high numbers of simultaneous applications.

AIMB-788/708 – trusted mainstream ATX motherboards

Advantech’s upgraded ATX motherboards, the AIMB-788 and AIMB-708 series with 12th Gen. Intel® Core™/Pentium®/Celeron® LGA1700 processors, are equipped with 7 x PCIe/PCI expansion slots (including 1 x PCIe x16 Gen 4, and up to 3 x PCIe x4 Gen 3), M.2 (NVMe), and DDR4-3200 memory. They offer higher computing performance, expansibility, and cost-effectiveness, which satisfies a wide range of applications in industrial automation and video surveillance that require seamless upgrades, long-term support, proven reliability, and strict revision control.

Multiple choices of motherboards and SBCs with Intel 12th gen processors

This upgrade from 10th to 12th generation processors also includes ASMB-588 and ASMB-788 MicroATX/ATX server boards, as well as PCE-5033 and PCE-5133, PICMG 1.3 full-size SBC. ASMB-588/788 supports DDR5 ECC/ non-ECC memory and PCIe 5.0 connectivity, can connect to frame grabber cards, motion control cards, and accelerators for top-tier I/O bandwidth and massive compute performance. PCE-5033/5133 feature multiple backplanes, diverse I/O, and various expansion slots which deliver unrivaled flexibility and performance. 

More systems will also be upgraded to Intel 12th gen processors

This major upgrade will also cover MIC-770 V3, IPC-320 and PCE-2033/2133 and ASMB-610V3. MIC-770 V3 is an embedded box IPC with high performance, modular and fanless design, which is perfect for deploying in heavy industrial hazardous environments. IPC-320 will have a whole new launch for compact and tower IPCs with the latest 12th gen Intel® Core™ I CPUs. These systems are designed for central control rooms in substations and industrial automation requiring industrial-grade design, longevity support, silent operation, and low noise (40dB) acoustics. PCE-2033/2133 are motherboard bundled sales with ultra-compact IPC-200 chassis series (IPC-220/240/242) designed for machine vision and motion control in equipment manufacturing and the semiconductor industry. ASMB-610V3 is a proprietary server board bundle sale with short-depth edge accelerator server chassis HPC-6120, its compact design offers 4 x PCIe expansion capability in a 1U 18” short-depth chassis suitable for machine automation, machine vision, factory automation, AI, smart cities, medical technology, and more.
