PEAK 886 supports a wide selection of LGA 1156 socket-type processors, ranging from the quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3770 processor to the dual-core Intel Pentium G2120 processor. With Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 and up to 16GB dual channel DDR3 1333/1600 SDRAM, PEAK 886 supports DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL 1.1 and increases 3D imaging processing by 2.9 times, compared with the previous generation processors. Based on the Intel 22nm technologies, PEAK 886 also uplifts the overall performance by 19 percents while keeps TDP within 77W.

PEAK 886 equipped with the latest PCIe 3.0 doubles the interconnect speed to 8Gbps. Working in conjunction with NEXCOM PICMG 1.3 backplane NBP 14536, PEAK 886 supports up to PCIe ×16, four PCIe ×1 and four PCI. To facilitate the migration from ISA to PCIe, four ISA outputs are also supported by the backplane with built-in PCI/ISA bridge ITE8888.

As for data-critical machine tools, PEAK 886 adopts considerable measures to ensure fast data access, data reliability and data security. PEAK 886 has four state-of-the-art 6Gb/s SATA 3.0 and two 3Gb/s SATA 2.0 ports; it supports RAID 0/1/5/10, enabling response acceleration and data recovery; it also offers TPM function as an option to carefully guard data security with cryptographic functions, RSA key, just to name a few.

PEAK 886, following NEXCOM newly introduced operating temperature standard on its embedded boards, can perform its full functions at temperatures as low as -15degC. Putting PEAK 886 to good use, system designers can build assorted machines tools including CNC machine, milling machines, lathe, and more for use in severe environments.
