With its Power+Board system solutions, Bicker Elektronik offers all components from a single source: latest industrial motherboards from ASUS IoT for the 13th generation Intel Core, suitable power supply and UPS solutions, as well as industrial-quality memory and accessories.

System developers also benefit from personal B2B design-in advice and professional service & support. With the current motherboards from ASUS IoT, the full performance of the 13th generation Intel Core can be optimally used for high-performance computer systems. The long-term available industrial motherboards combine quality, performance, and connectivity for reliable 24/7 continuous operation. Courtesy of hardware expandability and a wide range of form factors, 13th Gen Intel Core industrial platforms can meet industrial customer needs for versatile IoT applications in retail, banking, hospitality, medical, industrial manufacturing, machine learning, and AI inferencing fields.

High computing performance with 13th generation processors (Raptor Lake)

The 13th Gen Intel Core processors for IoT Edge AI feature up to 24 cores and 32 threads. Their efficient multitasking supports multiple applications and workloads on a single platform, delivering up to 1.04x faster single-threaded performance and up to 1.34x faster multi-threaded performance compared to the previous 12th generation.

DDR5 memory solutions for maximum performance

The new DDR5 generation of memory modules offers 50% faster transfer rates while reducing the standard operating voltage to 1.1V compared to 1.2V for DDR4. This helps to optimise the energy management of the entire system. In addition, the DIMM power management IC (PMIC) on each module provides more stable power supply and stronger signal transmission for improved power efficiency. Bicker Elektronik offers the new DDR5 industrial memory modules from Cervoz in this segment. These have a Fixed Bill-Of-Materials (BOM), high-quality components, an extended temperature range up to +85°C and above-average reliability.

Doubled speed with PCIe 5.0 and full backwards compatibility

The new industrial motherboards offer numerous support functions for peripheral devices. 13th Gen Intel Core processors support up to 16 PCIe 5.0 lanes, which are twice the speed of PCIe 4.0, and up to four PCIe 4.0 lanes. Such flexibility facilitates system configuration and system upgrades to full computing capability over the course of a device's operational lifetime. PCIe 5.0 support also ensures a higher-bandwidth connection to GPUs and SSDs for lower latency and optimal performance.

Graphics performance up to 8K60 and quad display support with 4K60

The ASUS IoT motherboards have an integrated Intel UHD graphics unit. This supports up to 8K60 HDR video and up to four simultaneous 4K60 displays, ideal for retail video walls, digital signage, point of sale (POS) and kiosks. Also, accelerated AI and improved graphics can be used in healthcare to deliver enhanced imaging for ultrasounds, medical charts, endoscopy and more. And it can provide machine vision and AI in smart factories for defect inspection.

Trusted information security for IoT applications

ASUS IoT offers comprehensive security features for customers developing efficient and powerful edge devices for mission-critical applications that are protected against cyberattacks. ASUS IoT motherboards are pre-installed with Intel Boot Guard technology for platform protection from tampering; Intel Platform Trust Technology (Intel PTT) for improved protection for data, keys, and ID; Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel AES-NI) for crypto acceleration and Intel Virtualisation Technology (Intel VT) for trusted workload execution environments with shared resources.

New DC/DC converter for dynamic power requirements of current processors

With the contact-cooled DC300WS, Bicker Elektronik presents a powerful DC/DC converter with a very high efficiency of up to 98%. The converter offers an ultra-wide input range of 6…36VDC and allows the flexible choice between the output voltages 12V, 19V and 24V. The DC300WS was developed for the stable power supply of motherboards with the latest generation of Intel Core processors. These CPUs have a highly dynamic power consumption with sometimes extreme jumps in performance within a very short time. The circuit design of the new DC300WS is optimized and shows excellent control stability at the appropriate CPU power levels (PL2). With its compact design and high reliability, the DC300WS is the ideal power supply solution for a variety of single-voltage motherboards and fanless computer systems in industry and medical technology. The polymer capacitors of the high-quality converter have a service life of more than 10 years. The scope of delivery of the DC300WS includes a thermal pad for contact cooling.

All from a single source – saving time and money in system development

All core components for high-performance computer systems can be purchased conveniently and safely from a single source at Bicker Elektronik. This means that a lot of time and money can be saved in component qualification and system development while at the same time shortening the time-to-market. In addition to industrial motherboards and particularly reliable power supply and UPS solutions, Bicker Elektronik offers a portfolio of high-quality system components in industrial quality, including suitable embedded processors, SO/DIMM memory modules, M.2 embedded modules, expansion cards as well as active and passive cooling solutions.
