Portwell Announces ROBO-8113VG2AR PICMG 1.3 SHB with Latest Intel® Xeon® and Core™ Processors

ROBO-8113VG2AR. This PICMG 1.3 System Host Board (SHB) offers a choice of theortwell, Inc., (http://www.portwell.com.tw) a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, today announced the Portwell ROBO-8113VG2AR. This PICMG 1.3 System Host Board (SHB) offers a choice of the latest 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i3 Processor product family or the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v5 product family. The Intel® Xeon® Processors include Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Intel®Hyper-Threading Technology to deliver improved performance and processing efficiency. Portwell’s ROBO-8113VG2AR implements flexible PCI Express Gen 3 expansions with a choice of one PCIe x16, two PCIe x8, or one PCIe x8 and two PCIe x4 with dedicated processor SKU, which is ideal for a range of applications, such as Industrial Automation, Digital Signage and Medical.

ROBO-8113VG2AR supports Intel® C236 and Q170 chipsets to provide up to 32GB DDR4 system memory with ECC or non-ECC option. In addition, ROBO-8113VG2AR utilizes the enhanced graphics engine integrated in these latest processors to provide significant 3D performance and Microsoft®DirectX® 12 support. The processors can drive up to three independent displays via DVI-I (VGA and DVI-D) and HDMI up to 4Kx2K. The ROBO-8113VG2AR single board computer also supplies rich I/O functions, such as 10 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, 6 SATA ports (dual ports via backplane) and dual Intel®Gigabit Ethernet ports.

ROBO-8113VG2AR also implements four smart COM ports on-board. The smart COM port function can provide easier adjustment of RS-232/422/485 mode via the BIOS instead of jumper settings. User-friendly design allows customers to save the time and cost during system maintenance.

For industries that already have a large installed base, the ROBO-8113VG2AR not only provides a way to upgrade those systems to use the latest Intel® processors, but also supports legacy elements such as VGA, four PCI expansion options, four serial ports and PS2 keyboard and mouse.
