Portwell has launched its new ROBO-8115VG2AR. The ROBO-8115VG2AR is aimed at customers who are seeking an embedded desktop system with high computing power and flexible expansion capabilities.

Lai recommends the new ROBO8115VG2AR as a well suited choice for balanced or performance-demanding applications in industrial automation and intelligent control systems, medical/healthcare imaging systems, automated test equipment, semiconductor equipment, display wall/digital signage, digital security surveillance, broadcasting systems, transportation and storage.

More energy efficiency, optimised power consumption and performance

ROBO-8115VG2AR is Portwell’s PICMG 1.3 full-size Single Host Board (SHB) computer featuring the latest 10th Generation Intel Xeon W family processors or Core i3/i5/i7/i9 /Pentium/Celeron up to 10 cores/20 threads and 4.8 GHz (35-95W) (Comet Lake platform) in LGA 1200 socket with Intel W480E or Q470E chipset.

The new SBC supports Intel turbo boost, hyper-threading, virtualisation, thermal monitoring, trusted execution (TXT) and SpeedStep technology (depends on processor SKU); delivers up to 128GB dual-channel ECC/non-ECC DDR4 2666 SDRAM on four Long-DIMM sockets; flexible PCI Express Gen 3 (up to 8.0 GT/s) from CPU - 1x PCIe x16 or 2x PCIe x8 or 1x PCIe x8 and 2x PCIe x4 adjusted by jumper setting—from Chipset—1x PCIe x4 or 4x PCIe x1 by different BIOS, and PCI expansion—4x PCI devices at 32-bit, 33 MHz; total 6x USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps), 4x USB 2.0, 5x SATA 3.0 (dual ports via backplane), 1x M.2 Type M 2280 for SSD and software RAID 0,1, 5,10; dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN, 2x RS-232, 2x RS232/422/485 selectable by BIOS adjustment.

The Intel Gen 9 graphic engine that provides significant 3D multimedia performance and supports DirectX 12 and Open GL 4.5; supports multiple independent displays such as HDMI (4K resolution), DVI-D (up to 1920x1200) and VGA (up to 1920x1200), by using DVI-I to DVID and VGA Y splitter, user can connect with DVI-D and VGA monitor simultaneously (available in both clone and extended modes); ATX power input; supports onboard TPM 2.0 for application security.

The Latest SBC for New Application or Legacy Architecture

“The newly-designed ROBO-8115VG2AR features the latest 10th Generation Intel Xeon W/Core processors,” added Lai. “This means it now offers up to 20% more cores than previous generation processors, up to 31% better multi-tasking performance for compute-intensive applications, and as much as 11% improved performance on single-task compute-intensive applications.

“In a nutshell the new ROBO-8115VG2AR offers energy efficiency, and optimised balance of computing power, accelerated graphic processing and power consumption for new application needs or a quick upgrade for the legacy application installed with the old SBC.

“What’s more, it also provides high flexibility for I/O expansion with wide selections of backplanes, supports multiple peripheral control and wireless connectivity for remote applications. Not only that, our customers also benefit from the peace of mind they get from the long lifespan support of ten plus years inherent with this product.”
