Embedded system offers low power and fan-less design
The Industrial PC (IPC) market innovator and Associate member of the Intel Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, Portwell has announced the release of the PEB-2773 (146x102mm) 3.5" embedded system board based on the Intel Atom processor E3900 series, formerly codenamed Apollo Lake.
The new Intel Atom processors integrate the Intel Gen 9 3D graphics engine with up to 18 EUs (Execution Units) that improves the performance and supports 4K codec encoding/decoding.
It also supports one dual-channel 24bit LVDS connection, one DisplayPort (DP) and HDMI on rear I/O with resolution up to 4096x2160. The 204-pin non-ECC SODIMM provides maximum memory, making it capable of supporting up to 8GB of DDR3L. PEB-2773 supports a total of six COM ports, six USB 3.0 ports and dual gigabit Ethernet. The PEB-2773 represents the latest state-of-the-art innovation that results from the years of experience Portwell has gained as a manufacturer of high-quality computer boards.
The Portwell PEB-2773 3.5" embedded board is built with the Intel Atom processor E3900 product family. Not only does it operate with Thermal Design Power (TDP) under 12W for fan-less applications, but it also supports a wide industrial temperature range from -40 to 85°C and a wide voltage of power input from 12-24V for rugged applications.
The PEB-2773, designed with Apollo Lake Intel Atom processor E3900 series, features one DDR3L 1333/1600/1866 MHz SO-DIMM socket equipped with up to 8GB DDR3L memory. It also integrates Intel graphics, supporting DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 2.0 plus high-performance, flexible hardware decoding to decode multiple high-resolution 4K videos in parallel.
In addition, it supports up to 4,096x2,160 pixels with DisplayPort, HDMI port, and dual-channel LVDS up to 1,920x1,200 pixels, and is designed with the flexibility for connecting up to three independent display interfaces. Support for a total of six USB 3.0 ports ensures fast data transmission with low-power consumption. Two 5Gb/s PCI Express 2.0 lanes can befor use as 1x full-size Mini-PCIe (supporting mSATA) and 1x half-size Mini-PCIe socket.
It also supports one SATA 3.0 interfaces with up to 6Gb/s to allow quick and flexible system expansions. The Intel Ethernet Controller I210-IT provides dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN access via the two RJ45 ports.
A significant benefit of the PEB-2773 embedded board, with its quad-core processing power and high capability, is that it generates and delivers greater and faster performance than the previous generation and provides great data transferring bandwidth for improving graphics performance.
Furthermore, the enhancement in flash playback, rich 2D/3D graphics quality, security and power efficiency enable a fascinating visual experience in a variety of market segments and applications such as retail, networking, panel PC, industrial automation and digital security surveillance.
