TAIPEI, Taiwan – AAEON Technology in Taipei, Taiwan, is introducing the MAX-Q670A Micro-ATX computer motherboard for rugged and industrial embedded computing applications.

The MAX-Q670A has the 13th-generation Intel Core Raptor Lake processor, and supports central processing units (CPUs) from the 12th-and 13th-generation Intel Core processors.

Advanced technologies include Intel TCC for real-time computing, Intel vPro Enterprise for robust security and stability, and Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 for targeted workload management.

In designing the MAX-Q670A, AAEON focused on upgrading storage, hardware-based security features, and increased speed and bandwidth via onboard interfaces and expansion modules.

Equipped with two 16-lane PCI Express Gen 5 slots, the MAX-Q670A can accommodate several expansion modules such as graphic cards, with a further option of installing two 8-lane cards per slot.

With four LAN ports, two of which support 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet via Intel I225-LM, the MAX-Q670A benefits from high-speed peripheral device interfaces, and as much as 128 gigabytes of DDR5 system memory. This is in addition to a dense I/O comprised of a DB-9 port, alongside an internal 9-pin header for RS-232 function and an 8-bit Digital I/O interface.

The rugged board's security comes from four rear USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, which are bootable, while its two internal USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 2.0 ports also support a USB switchable power feature for remote peripheral device rebooting.

The MAX-Q670A's storage capacity is made up of eight SATA III drives with RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 support; in addition to two M.2 2242/2280 M-Keys which provide four-lane PCI Express Gen 4 functionality. For more information contact AAEON online at www.aaeon.com.
