Axiomtek: scalable Pico-ITX SBC for industrial IoT applications

Axiomtek is introducing the PICO51R, an ultra-compact 2.5-inch pico-ITX motherboard powered by the 7th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 or Celeron processor. With the onboard CPU attached on the rear side of the board, the PICO51R can aid the heat-extraction process to make fanless design possible and make system integration fast. The pico-ITX embedded board also provides practical expansion interfaces within its limited dimensions including one M.2 Key E slot for wireless modules and one M.2 key B slot for storage cards. The compact-sized rugged PICO51R is the perfect platform for industrial automation applications requiring a small form factor to fit in space-limited environments.

The Intel Core-based PICO51R supports one 260-pin DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM for up to 16GB of system memory. Moreover, the pico-ITX single board computer utilizes Intel HD graphics engine to bring a true high definition visual experience with dual display configurations through DisplayPort and 18/24-bit single/dual channel LVDS. In addition, this industrial motherboard can withstand a wide operating temperature range from -20°C to +60°C for use in rugged and harsh environments.

The PICO51R adopts a rich array of I/O interfaces including two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports with Intel Ethernet Connection I219-LM and Intel Ethernet Controller I211-AT, two RS-232/422/485 ports, one I2C port and 4-bit DIO port. The board requires only +12V DC power supply input. To ensure reliable operation, it supports a watchdog timer to detect and recover from computer malfunctions and supports hardware monitoring features to monitor temperature, voltage, fan speed, and more. Furthermore, it supports Intel Active Management Technology 11 for remote management.
