Arbor Solution Introduces Latest Compact, Ultra-Versatile Computer Board

EmCORE-i230G Offers Choice of Low-Power Dual-Core or Quad-Core Processor, Provides Industrial Temperature Options, and Includes Wide Offering of I/O Interfaces

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Arbor Solution, a leading industrial-PC (IPC) provider of embedded computing solutions, announces the introduction of its latest compact computer board, the 3.5" EmCORE-i230G, featuring either an Intel low-power dual-core Atom E3825 1.33GHz or quad-core E3845 1.91GHz processor soldered onboard. As part of Intel's E3800 family of processors, both deliver outstanding computer and graphics performance. The economically priced EmCORE-i230G is offered in both extended temperature (-4 - 158 degrees Fahrenheit) and wide temperature (-40 - 185 degrees Fahrenheit) models.

"The EmCORE-i230G is one of our most versatile computer boards yet," commented Brian Yurkiw, Arbor Solution vice president. "Its wide array of I/O interfaces allows the board to serve as an anchor for communications and control boxes. These extensive options offer system integrators tremendous flexibility. Even if a project does not require using all of the I/O interfaces, keeping options available help 'futureproof' a system by allowing room for replacement or redesigned components."

I/O Aplenty

Among the over-one-dozen I/O connections the Arbor Solution EmCORE-i230G comes with are: six USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0/2.0 port; two RS232/485 selectable serial ports; mini PCI Express, micro SDXC, and micro SIM expansion sockets; and one each LVDS, VGA, and HDMI display outputs. It also comes with one SATA3 port; one CFast socket; two independent LAN controllers; HD audio; and DIO.


The combination of heat and cold tolerance and extensive I/O offerings - especially its atypically large USB count - make the EmCORE-i230G perfect for installations such as outdoor kiosks, which are exposed to a wide-temperature variance and depend on a large array of devices that interface with the computer board. Applications such as gas, oil, and mining, which are exposed to both high and low temperature extremes, are other areas where the EmCORE-i230G makes an ideal solution.
