Embedded computing and intelligent applications provider, Advantech, has announced the release of its newest UTX form factor motherboard, the AIMB-U117. Measuring 116.8x111.8mm, this palm-sized industrial motherboard is equipped with Intel Atom E39XX processors and features three independent displays, onboard eMMC storage, and impressive I/O capabilities.
It supports a wide range of DC power inputs from 12 to 24V. Compliant with flexible thermal solutions designed by Advantech engineers, the AIMB-U117 supports extended operating temperatures from -20 to 70°C for rigorous reliability and performance under intense conditions. Small in size, the AIMB-U117 targets multiple applications: digital signage, passenger information systems, automation, robot AGV, robotics, and vending.
The AIMB-U117 integrates an Intel Gen 9 graphics engine for improved throughput, media acceleration, and 4K2K display resolution. It offers substantial display interfaces, including DisplayPort1.2, HDMI1.4, and eDP (or LVDS). It supports three simultaneous, independent display outputs to deliver stunning graphics and media performance (DirectX 12.0, OpenGL 4.4, OpenCL 2.0).
The 4096x2160 high resolution output meets the requirements of high-quality display applications, making it ideal for digital signage applications requiring a slim-sized solution with high resolution graphics and up to three independent display outputs.
The AIMB-U117 is designed for wide-ranging DC power source input (12 to 24V) and features a lockable DC Jack to ensure power cables remain securely connected in high vibration environments. The AIMB-U117 (I SKU) operates under a wide temperature range, -20 to 70°C, designed for a variety of thermal solutions.
It is therefore an suited solution for use in automation applications and/or semi-outdoor public environments where passenger information systems, signage walls, and vending machines are located such as airports or train stations.
