The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has launched two new open-architecture embedded controllers. The UNO-2184G is a high-end, high performance model designed for applications that require a large amount of graphical processing power, while the UNO-2174G is a mid-end controller for industries that require faster performance, but not the 3D capabilities of the 2184G. Both include isolated chassis and logic grounds for increased stability and reliability.
The UNO-2184G comes with a high performance Intel Core i7-2655LE processor, and the UNO-2174G comes with an Intel Celeron 847E processor. Both models can support up to 16G DDR3 RAM (with 4G/8G RAM onboard or built-in), a dedicated Intel HD graphics processor, and are completely fanless, enabling them to operate in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius and as high as 60 degrees Celsius.
The core i7 CPU on the UNO-2184G supports AMT 7.0, which is hardware-based technology for remotely managing and securing PCs regardless of whether the machine is powered on or if an operating system is installed of functional.
Both models come with the following hardware configuration: three display ports (DVI, HDMI and Display Port), six USB 2.0 ports, two Mini PCIe sockets and SIM card slot card ready for additional third-party cards such as WLAN, 3G, GPRS, and GPS; four Gigabit LAN ports which support teaming functionality such as fault tolerance, link aggregation and load balance features; dual COM ports that support RS-232,422 and 485 with automatic flow control and support for any baud rate; and, using the powered e-SATA port, a backup hard drive or USB device can also be connected.
To further aid performance and usability, the UNO-2184G and 2174G come with a dedicated Intel VT-D chipset, which allows system administrators to install multiple operating systems on a single device.
