IRVINE, Calif., 13 Oct. 2010. The Advantech USA Embedded & Network Computing Division of Advantech Co., Ltd. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing an industrial-gradeMini-ITX motherboard for embedded computing applications that supports Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium processors with LGA 1156 sockets.
The Intel 45-nanometer Core i7 and Core i5 700 series processors are quad core CPUs with integrated memory controller. The 32-nanometer Intel Core i5 600 and Core i3 series processors are dual core with integrated graphics and memory controller, and Intel HD Graphics with DX10 support. AIMB-280 is capable of SATA RAID 0, 1, 5 & 10 to ensure reliable storage and system protection for network-intensive applications.
The Intel Turbo boost monitor application is a Microsoft Windows sidebar gadget which provides a display of processor frequency when Intel Turbo boost technology is active. This improves performance by enabling processor cores to run at higher frequencies within the available thermal envelope. Supported operating systems are Microsoft Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit editions with Service Pack 2, and Microsoft Windows 7, 32-bit and 64-bit editions.
The AIMB-280 comes with high connectivity and expansion options including one PCI Express x16 expansion slot, two serial ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, and four Serial ATA II 300-megabyte-per-second connectors.
AIMB-280 also comes with software RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 support, offering data storage and data protection, and dual PCI Express based Intel 82578DM and 82583V Gigabit Ethernet ports delivering speeds as fast as 1,000 megabits per second of bandwidth for network-intensive applications.
