Intel® Core(TM) i7/i5 Mobile Processor Based Mini-ITX with Extended HD Graphics Performance
Irvine, California - Advantech, the embedded platform and integration services provider, announces the introduction of a new industrial-grade, Mini-ITX motherboard supporting the latest Intel® Core(TM) i7/i5/Celeron® mobile processors with FCPGA 988 sockets. Intel Core i7, Core i5 and Intel Celeron mobile series processors feature intelligent performance, power efficiency, and integrated Intel HD Graphics with DX10 support. AIMB-270 is capable of SATA RAID 0, 1, 5 & 10 to ensure reliable storage and system protection for network-intensive applications.
Support Intel Turbo Boost and Hybrid Multi-monitor
The Intel Turbo Boost Monitor application is a Microsoft Windows sidebar gadget which provides a simple display of processor frequency. This further improves performance by allowing processor cores to run at higher frequencies within the available thermal envelope. Intel Hybrid multi-monitor enables concurrent function of an integrated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) alongside a discrete GPU solution, allowing for operability of greater than two independently-driven displays.
Maximum Connectivity for Minimum Resources
The AIMB-270 comes with high connectivity and expansion options including: one PCIe x16 expansion slot, six serial ports, four SATA II 300 MB/s connectors, eight USB 2.0 ports, dual display output with several display output interface options: VGA, DVI, and LVDS (LVDS supports 3.3V, 5V, and 12V for large sized panels). AIMB-270 also comes with software RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 support, offering abundant data storage and reliable data protection, and dual PCI Express based Gigabit (Intel 82577LM and 82583V) Ethernet ports delivering up to 1000 Mbps of bandwidth for network-intensive applications. All this connectivity is packed into a space-saving, power-efficient, and cost-effective Mini-ITX form factor.
Dual Display and Excellent Graphics Performance
With the graphics engine integrated onto the processor chip, these two-chip solutions provide enhanced graphics performance compared to previous Intel platforms. The integrated graphics controller includes Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology and Intel Clear Video Technology.
Integrated Intelligent Software API
Advantech provides drivers and APIs for different operating systems including GPIO, SMBus, watchdog timer, hardware monitor, panel backlight on/off, and brightness control. Supported operating systems include Windows 7, Windows XP, XPEmbedded, Windows CE, and Linux-hardware drivers for these OS are readily available. AIMB-270 is available now; please contact your local sales or visit the website for more information.
