Compact Embedded Computing Platform With 6th Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 Processors
ADLINK Technology introduced its AmITX-SL-G, a compact embedded computing platform equipped with high-performance, low-power 6th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors. The AmITX-SL-G design follows the Form, Fit, Function principle for scalable development, reducing time-to-market for embedded applications.
The latest Mini-ITX has up to 32 GB of dual channel non-ECC DDR4 memory at 1867 MHz. With the Intel Q170 and H110 chipsets and HD Iris Pro graphics, the processor offers faster 3D imaging and video conferencing, ultra HD/4K resolution across three display ports for medical-grade images, and low-power transcoding for HEVC/H.265, VP8, VP9, and VDENC formats.
The Mini-ITX form factor is the smallest in the ITX inventory. At only 170 mm square and approximately 35 mm thick, its small size is ideal for any limited-space application. ADLINK embedded boards also follow the form, fit, function design principle: board designs feature a layout consistent for connector and pinout locations, allowing easy upgrades with no need to modify the enclosure or cabling. The Mini-ITX remains compatible with Micro-ATX and regular ATX chassis to offer scalability for later development.
With extensive I/O options, The AmITX-SL-G embedded board serves as an ideal base for a scalable system. External connectors include dual GbE ports, four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, HD audio I/O, and three display ports. Internal connectors include three SATA 6 Gbps ports, display-optional LVDS/eDP, and a feature header with 10 GPIO, SMBus, and I2C support. PCIe expansion is available through a Gen3 PCIe x16 slot, one single-lane PCIe, and two mini-PCIe slots with support for mSATA.
The AmITX-SL-G embedded board is equipped with ADLINK’s Smart Embedded Management Agent (SEMA) to provide detailed system data at the device level, including temperature, voltage, power consumption, and other key information. Access to system activities allows operators to identify inefficiencies and malfunctions in real-time, thus preventing failures and minimizing downtime. ADLINK's SEMA-equipped devices connect seamlessly to the SEMA Cloud to enable remote monitoring. All collected data, including sensor measurements and management commands, is accessible from any place, at any time through an encrypted connection. In addition, the board offers the enhanced security capabilities of the Intel Q170 and H110 chipsets, including new AES instructions, faster encryption, and the Intel Software Guard Extension and Memory Protection.
A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network
A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss represents the most thoroughly researched and most complete work on CAN available in the marketplace. Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial network technology that was originally designed for the automotive industry, especially for European cars, but has also become a popular bus in industrial automation as well as other applications.
The CAN bus is primarily used in embedded systems, and as its name implies, is a network technology that provides fast communication among microcontrollers up to real-time requirements, eliminating the need for the much more expensive and complex technology of a Dual-Ported RAM. This book provides complete information on all CAN features and aspects combined with a high level of readability. Read more...
