QM87 Mini-ITX Board

FREMONT, CA. -- October 2, 2014 -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., ( a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and a Premier member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, announced today its WADE-8022 Mini-ITX embedded system board. The WADE-8022, based on the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor (BGA1364) (codenamed Haswell) and mobile Intel® QM87 chipset, provides a wide-range of processor support from the Intel® Celeron® Processor 2000E to the Intel Core i7-4700EQ Processor. With high performance and flexibility for functional expansion, the Portwell WADE-8022 is ideal for intelligent systems, kiosk, digital signage, outdoor TV wall, video conferencing, medical, defense, and industrial automation and control applications.

Specifically, the WADE-8022, featuring flexible expansion interfaces, enables an exceptional solution under available resources and limited board space. WADE-8022 differentiates itself from existing Mini-ITX boards in the marketplace, which utilize a riser card to increase functional interfaces or additional PCIe/PCI slots, by horizontally leveraging an extension board to furnish a flexible platform that facilitates multiple functional expansion choices. Bridging PCIe signals through the gold finger to the extension board, WADE-8022 can easily support the functions on a two-slot-added FlexATX or three-slot-added microATX motherboard. This expansion mechanism also supports other interfaces transmitted via specific circuit design and component selection. Portwell can, therefore, quickly make ready a customized solution with additional, project-required features, such as LAN, Mini PCIe, and many more.

The mobile Intel QM87 chipset continues to work on the edge of innovation with an advanced architecture to deliver quality, performance, and industry-leading I/O technologies on most of the platforms powered by the 4th generation Intel Core processor product family. WADE-8022 is the first Portwell off-the-shelf product utilizing the mobile Intel QM87 chipset on the Mini-ITX platform. Designing with the 4th generation Intel Core processors manufactured on the 22nm process technology, Portwell has developed a series of board- and system-level embedded solutions delivering advanced computing and graphics performance and energy efficiency.

Other features of the Portwell WADE-8022 Mini-ITX board include two DDR3L SO-DIMM slots supporting up to 16GB system memory; four USB 3.0 ports and six USB 2.0 ports; multiple display function via DVI-I/HDMI/DisplayPort/LVDS; two Gigabit Ethernet; four SATA III supporting RAID 0, 1, 5,10; flexible expansion of one PCIe x16 and two Mini PCIe; and 12V DC input. Portwell’s new WADE-8022 Mini-ITX embedded system board is truly designed to deliver smart security and cost-saving manageability for easy integration into today’s intelligent embedded systems.
