Advantech offers new, high-performance PICMG1.0Advantech is announcing PCA-6028, a high-performance PICMG 1.0 SBC. It is based on the 4th generation Intel Core processor with the Intel H81 chipset, dual channel DDR3 memory up to 16GB, two USB 3.0 ports, and two SATA 3.0 connectors. PCA-6028 is compatible with all PCI/ISA backplanes and offers a more flexible choice of expansion slots. PCA-6028 is also characterised by its rich I/O support. PICMG1.0 gives the system a longer product life cycle and high-performance computing capabilities that can be employed across a broader range of applications and systems, such as manufacturing automation, transportation, and factory automation.

PCA-6028 is equipped with ferrite core chokes that gives the system a 25 per cent boost in power efficiency compared with systems with non-ferrite core chokes. In addition, in terms of material and reliability, its BR-level battery which is designed for industrial use possesses a stronger socket than CP-level batteries. PCA-6028 has an internal type A USB 2.0 port for an internal dongle or hardware key lock. The USB pin header is designed to support super speeds. PCA-6028 ranks higher in comparison with other products in its class.

Many customers using PCA-6010/6011 systems will be happy to know that PCA-6028 serves as a natural successor to their existing systems. PCA-6028 offers higher overall performance of CPU, I/O and has a longer product life (until 2020). Its mechanical design includes a stronger board that supports metal brackets with bending rates of less than 0.75 per cent. This substantially extends product durability and reliability. PCA-6028 is an I/O-oriented platform suitable for applications that require high performance, increased power efficiency, and a longer lifespan; it is a system suitable for use in transportation, manufacturing automation, factory automation, or other areas where advanced industrial computing is needed.
