MSC Technologies presents Thin Mini-ITX motherboards for embedded and industrial applications
The EMX-APLP runs on a quad-core Intel® Pentium® N4200 SoC processor from the current “Apollo Lake” family of processors, which is based on the low-power Goldmont microarchitecture. Clocked at 1.1 GHz/2.5 GHz and with a specified TDP of 6 W, the motherboard is specially designed for embedded applications, for instance in gaming, POS, digital signage, ATMs, monitoring systems and park management.
Two 204-pin DDR3L SO-DIMM sockets for up to 16 GB of memory are provided on the motherboard. In addition to two Gigabit Ethernet ports, there are nine USB interfaces, six serial interfaces and audio I/O. The EMX-APLP offers two SATA interfaces for data storage, with one of the ports taking the form of an mSATA 3.0 interface on the Mini-PCIe slot. The M.2 type A 2230 socket is intended to enable system expansions with wi-fi modules, but can be programmed as a PCIe x1 interface.
The EMX-SKLUP integrates a dual-core Intel® Core™ U-series or Intel® Celeron® sixth-generation processor (“Skylake”) with a maximum TDP of 15 W. The flagship model is fitted with the Intel® Core™ i7-6600U clocked at 2.6 GHz. The target markets are industry, automation, POS systems, portable medical devices, in-vehicle PCs, digital video recorders and set-top boxes.
This powerful motherboard has up to 32 GB of high-speed DDR4 RAM integrated. 8 x USB, 6 x serial, digital and analog audio and 2 x SATA are offered by way of interfaces. There is also one SD slot, one PCIe slot, a SIM card slot and M.2 Key B and A slots.
