ADLINK Technology, a leading provider of intelligent computing platforms, today announced the release of its latest industrial ATX motherboard, the IMB-M43, the market’s first industrial motherboard powered by 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors (formerly codenamed Skylake) and providing up to 5 PCIe slots. Flexible configuration and leading I/O ruggedness present a seriously cost-competitive solution for motion/vision-integrated applications, with robust device compatibility, durable connectivity, and extreme environmental readiness.

ADLINK’s IMB-M43’s best-in-class computing power and graphic performance support a wealth of industrial applications, powered by the newly released 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor with Intel Q170 chipset, boosting CPU performance by up to 10% compared with predecessors. A Gen 9 graphics engine delivers a 30% increase in graphic performance to accelerated hardware media codecs and enhanced display resolution for Ultra HD 4K.

“In the past, when industrial machine vision application developers needed 5 PCIe slots in a single system to accommodate either multiple frame grabbers and motion and I/O cards, or two sets of GPU cards with frame grabbers plus I/O card, they had to resort to customized products or seeking out suitable gaming or server-grade boards for more ample PCIe slot support” said Kenny Chang, Director of I/O Platforms Center, ADLINK Technology ”This generated considerable extra costs in equipment investment. The IMB-M43 is the market’s first 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processor-based industrial ATX motherboard supporting up to 5 PCIe slots and fully utilizing PCIe/PCI configuration, providing maximum bandwidth in a single system, resulting in an ideal embedded computing platform solution, dramatically lowering TCO.”

With unique and flexible PCIe configuration, the PCIe slots can be assigned to 4 PCIe 3.0 x4 lanes plus 1 PCIe 3.0 x8 lane, 2 PCIe 3.0 x4 lanes plus 2 PCIe 3.0 x8 lanes, and 2 PCIe 3.0 x4 lanes plus 1 PCIe 3.0 x16 lane, for optimal placement to fulfill different tasking requirements. To facilitate integration, ADLINK provides a complete roster of off-the-shelf motion, vision and I/O cards that are fully pre-verified to guarantee maximum compatibility and convenience.

The ADLINK IMB-M43 also features superior I/O ruggedness enhancing operational stability, including unique power design ensuring stable power supply for each USB port at 5V +-5%, with all USB ports able to achieve full loading even from a 300W supply, rugged connectors gold/metal plated to 3 times the thickness of competitors at a minimum15 microinches for enhanced corrosion resistance capability, and finally, EN55022 Class B-certified EMI prevention compared with most competitors showing only Class A. Meeting and surmounting extreme environmental challenges in industrial automation applications, the IMB-M43 ensures system stability, reliability and longevity like none other.

Performance, I/O ruggedness, and rich PCIe connectivity, the ADLINK IMB-M43 provides an optimal platform for industrial automation applications such as multimedia testing for mobile devices, measurement and inspection, and medical imaging, as well as for applications calling for PCIe storage support such as data center/application servers.
