Advantech is set to release the AIMB-554 industrial micro ATX motherboard, supporting the latest Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core Duo and Intel Core Solo processors with up to 667MHz FSB. With mobile-optimized architecture and 65-nanometer process technology, the AIMB-554’s Intel 945GM Express chipset includes superb power management, excellent I/O bandwidth with PCI Express, an integrated 32-bit 3D graphics engine based on Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 architecture and Intel High Definition Audio. Built for space-saving applications, the AIMB-554 delivers high performance, yet low power consumption capabilities in a ruggedly built board.
When combined with the new Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 processor, the AIMB-554 provides dual-core processing with a 4MB L2 cache and advanced power management, ensuring outstanding performance per watt (up to 28% less power than previous generations). The integrated VGA controller and GMA950 provides superior graphics via a PCI-Express x16 port, LVDS and TV-out connector, with support for dual display applications.
The AIMB-554 offers multiple high performance onboard I/O capabilities, with one PCI-Express x16 slot for a high end graphics card, one PCI-Express x4 slot, two PCI 32/33 slots and eight USB2.0 ports. The AIMB-554 has an onboard single/dual Gigabit LAN via PCI Express host interface. Two Serial ATA ports with RAID 0, 1 support, one RS-232 port, one RS-232/422/485 port and a parallel port are also included. The AIMB-554 also features tough industrial functions, like a watchdog timer, a long Mean-Time-Before-Failure (MTBF), CMOS data backup, a wide operating temperature range, and long-term service support. A custom BIOS service is available for specific function support as well.
The AIMB-554 complies with RoHS specifications and is fully compatible with Advantech’s rugged micro ATX chassis. The AIMB-554 board is an ideal solution for embedded and industrial applications that require high graphic computing performance in a low-power platform. The AIMB-554 supports Microsoft Windows XP/2K/Linux.
