This fan-less embedded system features a choice of the Intel® Celeron® processor N3000 product family with dual cores and the Intel® Pentium® processor N3000 product family with four cores. The rugged and compact design of the RICH-33B0-8171 offers low power consumption, making it the perfect solution for applications in kiosk, POS, digital signage, medical, and the harsh environments of factory automation.
The new rugged RICH-33B0-8171 is equipped with the Portwell WADE-8171 Mini-ITX board. Based on the Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® processor N3000 product families with a 6W thermal design power (TDP), this board features Intel® HD Graphics architecture which supports up to 3 displays with a maximum resolution of 4K and twice the performance of the previous generation. The compact RICH-33B0-8171 embedded system also features DDR3L SO-DIMM up to 8GB supporting 1333/1600 MT/s; one HDMI on the rear I/O with resolution up to 3840 x 2160; one legacy VGA interface support; two COM ports for RS-232/422/485 selected by jumper; and multiple storage interfaces with 2.5” HDD/SSD, as well as mSATA. In addition, the Portwell RICH-33B0-8171 is designed especially for IoT applications. The tiny and exquisite box (200mm x 200mm x 45mm) integrates the Mini PCIe interface to provide wireless connectivity options, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G/4G/GPS, and NFC functionalities. It serves as an ideal solution as an IoT gateway.
Thanks to the Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® processor N3000 series’ advancements, Portwell’s RICH-33B0-8171 embedded system delivers up to quad-core processing power and high graphics capabilities while on a compact and fan-less platform. Moreover, the rugged and compact RICH-33B0-8171 supports temperature ranging from 0ºC to 60ºC for harsh environment operations, while its fan-less design makes silent operation, reliability, low maintenance, and cost reductions possible.
With its greater processing power, Intel® HD Graphics, and flexible support for I/O interfaces, the RICH-33B0-8171 is indeed an ideal solution to fulfill the requirements of rich I/O and the demand for 4K-2K resolution.
