Advantech, an embedded platform and integration services provider, unveiled the new ASMB-920IR server-grade motherboard powered by Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 family technology. This new technology comprises 64-bit multi-core processors, PCI Express Gen 3 high speed communications, and DDR3 1600 registered high capacity memory. It is designed for high performance demands such as video processing and mission critical multi-task applications. ASMB-920IR is Advantech’s first mainboard with flexible PME design, the “Powerful Modular Expansion” cards with various support options that allow PCI, PCI-X and PCI Express slots to flexibly plug into the main platform. With diverse PME options, the ASMB-920IR keeps upgrade costs under control while fulfilling multiple slot requirements in field applications. This Extended ATX board also meets SSI (Server System Infrastructure) EEB form factor baseboard mounting location specs, so customers can easily build system solutions using Advantech’s or third party’s server chassis.
