CPU Boards & CPU Cards
Contrary to conventional consumer mainboards, our CPU boards are designed for the use in the industrial area. Issues like continuous operation, extended temperature range, vibration resistance and long-term availability are familiar variables for us. Additionally, there are technical characteristics, which are necessary for individual applications. These include e.g. serial interfaces, digital inputs/outputs, IPMI2.0 support, LVDS interfaces etc. Consequently, no board is similar to another; each is distinguished by individual specifications. Approach us and we will give you advice about the compatible board for your intended purpose of application.
Additional information about CPU Boards & CPU Cards
We distinguish the multitude of our CPU boards between four main groups, which are divided in several subgroups: slot CPU cards, mainboards, embedded boards and Computer-on-Modules. The classic slot CPU cards are only used in the industrial field. Together with the compatible backplanes, the slot CPU cards provide an enormous number of possible combinations. The mainboards are based on the standards ATX and Mini-ITX. These designs are also widespread in the consumer market and are therefore very well-known. We call our embedded boards not only embedded because they are smaller than conventional mainboards, but also due to their application in devices and systems developed by customers. The computer-on-modules are based on a modular concept. Here, the CPU and the chipset, which build the core, are on a separate board, which in turn is plugged in a base board. These kind of boards are often helpful, if there is no proper standard board available, or if flexibility is preferred regarding the processor and the chipset. Our Computing Accelerator Cards provide additional computing power via PCI, mini-PCIe or M.2 interface and are suitable for AI and Deep Learning applications. They can be used in combination with Intel's Open VINO software for Inference and training systems. As accessories we offer further PCI add-on cards, suitable displays as well as software images of different operating systems.
