AIMB Mobile G-Series Mini-ITX Board with Extended HD Graphics Performance
Von ADVANTECH Europe B.V
Germering, 21.10.2011 - Advantech, the embedded platform and integration services provider, announces the introduction of a new industrial-grade, Mini-ITX motherboard supporting the latest AMD® G-Series processors. AMD G-Series feature intelligent performance, power efficiency, and integrated AMD HD Graphics with DX11 support. AIMB-223 is capable of SATA RAID 0, 1, 5 & 10 to ensure reliable storage and system protection for network-intensive applications.
AMD's "Fusion" Architecture Accelerated Processing Unit
AMD's Fusion family of processors is considered an APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) because it integrates a CPU and a discrete-class GPU on the same die, thereby improving graphics data bandwidth while reducing power consumption.
Maximum Connectivity for Minimum Resources
The AIMB-223 board comes with high connectivity and a variety of expansion options including: a single PCIe x1 and PCI expansion slot, six serial ports, four SATA III 600 MB/s connectors, and eight USB 2.0 ports. Dual display output is supported with several output interface options: VGA, HDMI, and LVDS (LVDS supports 3.3V, 5V, and 12V for large sized panels). AIMB-223 also comes with software RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 support, offering abundant data storage and reliable data protection, as well as dual PCI Express based Gigabit (Realtek 8111DL) Ethernet ports delivering up to 1000 Mbps of bandwidth for network-intensive applications. AIMB-223 has designed in both ATX12V and DC IN power to provide a low total cost solution. 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 AMD platforms. The integrated graphics controller includes AMD's first Fusion architecture accelerated processing unit which can also support dual channel 24-bit LVDS for large sized panels.
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-223 is available now; please contact your local sales or visit the website (http://www.advantech.com.tw/embcore/) for more information.
