Intel Atom-Based Pico-ITX Single-Board Computer For Industrial IoT Applications
Axiomtek announced the PICO317, its new fanless Pico-ITX SBC powered by an onboard quad-core Intel® Atom® x5-E3940 processor (code name: Apollo Lake). This tiny 2.5-inch embedded board can endure a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F) for use in harsh and space-constraint environments. It comes with dual-display capability through 4K-ready HDMI and 18/24-bit single/dual channel LVDS. Combined with a sturdy design and high-speed processing, the PICO317 is suitable for industrial IoT applications, including industrial automation, transportation, retail, etc.
Responding to the surging demand for imaging processing, the powerful PICO317 comes with the Intel integrated Gfx graphic engine, optimizing the graphics performance and bringing captivating visual experiences. This low-power industrial motherboard has a full-size PCI Express Mini Card slot supporting mSATA for wireless and storage. It has three USB 3.0 ports to connect with industrial cameras for machine vision applications.
The feature-rich PICO317 supports one DDR3L-1867 SO-DIMM slot with up to 8 GB of system memory. It carries one Gigabit Ethernet port with Intel i211AT, which supports Wake-on-LAN and PXE Boot ROM. Other I/O interfaces include two RS-232 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, three USB 3.0 ports, one HD Codec audio, and one SATA-600 slot. The Pico-ITX board also has SMBus that is compatible with I2C for smart battery support. To meet the industrial needs, it has a 5VDC input with AT auto power-on function. Furthermore, the PICO317 has a watchdog timer and offers hardware monitoring functions to monitor CPU and system temperature and voltage to ensure dependable operation.
Raspberry Pi 4 With PICAN3 CAN Bus HAT
fThe Raspberry Pi 4 offers ground-breaking improvements in processor speed, multimedia performance, memory, and connectivity compared to the prior-generation boards while preserving backward compatibility. The Raspberry Pi 4 provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems.
The PiCAN3 board with SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supply) and RTC provides CAN-Bus capabilities for the Raspberry Pi 4. It uses the Microchip MCP2515 CAN controller with MCP2551 CAN transceiver. Connection are made via DB9 or the onboard 3 way screw terminal.
The Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) allows connecting an input voltage range of 6 VDC to 20 VDC suitable for industrial and automotive applications and environments. The SMPS will power the Raspberry Pi plus PICAN3.
