The G20 is MEN's first 64-bit CompactPCI Serial single-board computer and with the integrated Intel Core i7 processor, it can reach a base frequency of 2.53 GHz. Available in Australia from Dominion Electronics , the processor also supports the Intel® Turbo Boost technology, which allows a maximum turbo frequency of 3.2 GHz, depending on the workload. As such, the board is suitable for applications requiring a high computing power, for example in transportation, industrial automation or power generation.
The G20 offers 8 PCI Express lines for fast communication as well as high quality graphics which can be accessed via two DisplayPorts at the front of the G20. These are well suited for infotainment applications and can also be used as HDMI or DVI ports using external adapters. Two PCIe-driven Gigabit Ethernet and two USB 2.0 interfaces are also available on the board front.
With the new CompactPCI Serial standard, the board offers a multitude of serial interfaces via rear I/O. 8 USB, 6 SATA, a Display or HDMI port (instead of one port at the front), 5 PCI Express x1, a PEG x8 and a PEG x4 port are provided for the user's applications.
Extra features include the new fast 8 GB DDR3 ECC SDRAM which is soldered against shock and vibration, and the microSD card slot connected via one USB interface can be used for extending the memory capacity.
