Advantech 3.5-Inch Single Board Computer: Brief
Big Computing in a Small Package for Industrial Control & Automation
Advantech 3.5-inch Biscuit Single Board Computer with the Intel® Atom™ Processor N270 and Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express Chipset Packs Performance and Features in a Fanless Design
Smaller embedded form factors are helping system designers integrate their solutions into a wide variety of high performance low power solutions in the industrial control and automation segment. The demand for small form factors, such as the popular 3.5-inch biscuit from Advantech, is helping to drive the industry trend toward higher performance CPUs and smaller chip sizes for rugged, fanless devices.
The Intel® Atom™ processor N270 and mobile Intel® 945GSE Express chipset enable Advantech to deliver a high performance and feature rich single board computer (SBC) that consumes approximately 10 watts, while reducing component count and platform cost.
In designing its PCM-9361* SBC, Advantech faced the challenge of delivering a high-performance Intel® architecture-based platform and a rich set of peripherals, including support for CRT and LVDS/TTL video displays, Ethernet, audio, RS-232/422/485 ports, a printer port, USB, Serial ATA, and Compact Flash. Advantech’s goal was to implement all of this functionality in its compact 3.5-inch biscuit board, while keeping power consumption low enough for a fanless design.
