DFI is introducing thirteen industrial motherboards based on the 6th Generation Intel Core processor family (codename Skylake) and built on Intel’s 14nm process technology. DFI's board lineup covers a range of platforms including: powerful workstations, cost-effective desktops and low thermal U-series processors to satisfy various requirements in embedded applications.
DFI's series of workstation motherboards feature the latest Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v5 product family under Intel C236 chipset to offer options for entry-level server and workstation applications. This series has an upgraded 64 GB DDR4 memory that enables accelerated exploration of complex data and provides dramatic improvements in graphics capabilities to optimise business. In addition, these boards support enhanced ECC memory and Intel vPro technology to make sure servers are secure, manageable and highly reliable for 24/7 operation.
DFI has designed a comprehensive product line of desktop platforms with the latest Intel Q170/H110 chipset and LGA1151 socket (which supports 6th Gen Intel Core/Pentium/Celeron processors). These embedded boards are equipped with intensive computing, graphics, and flexible I/O capabilities in variable forms (ATX/microATX/Mini-ITX) to make these boards a suitable controller for industrial automation machines in smart factory.
Due to the advanced I/O expandability (up to 10 USB 3.0 ports, 6 SATA 3.0 ports, and 20 Gen 3 PCIe lanes support), this product line is able to seamlessly connect industrial legacy devices to the IoT cloud. Thus, the users are able to monitor manufacturing processes remotely and improve factory’s productivity and reliability.
DFI's Mini-ITX and 3.5” SBC boards (powered by 6th Gen Intel Core U-series processor) provide high performance with low thermal design power (15W TDP) in a compact size. Moreover, the low-power boards are packed with state-of-the-art Intel HD graphics which support triple independent displays, ultra-immersive 2D/3D video processing capabilities and 4K high definition. These features make the boards suitable for space-constrained and graphics demanding solutions such as patient monitor, broadcasting system and ultrasound medical imaging in smart healthcare.
"As a leading provider of embedded solutions, we deployed a comprehensive product lineup to help our customer’s time-to-market utilising the latest Intel embedded technology in a wide range of vertical applications. Moreover, these DFI’s industrial-grade products guarantee 7-year life cycle support which ensures long-term availability and partnership with our customers" said Victor Huang, Product Manager, DFI.
