To meet the requirements of video-based monitoring for high-speed rails, Advantech provided our customer with MIO-5272 3.5”single board computers (SBC), which offer high performance and low power consumption, allow fanless operation, and provides -40~85°C wide-range temperature support, delivering high reliability and ruggedness for long-term stable operation in harsh environments.
Outstanding CPU performance & Rich I/O Interface
The Advantech MIO-5272 is a 3.5”small-sized SBC adopting the Intel CoreTM i ULT i7 processor, which provides high-performance computation with merely 15W of power consumption. MIO-5272 also provides rich I/O support, including COM, USB 3.0, 8-bit GPIO, mSATA, and more. USB 3.0 can be used for connecting line cameras or IP cameras. Meanwhile, the provision of MIOe high-speed expansion interface will allow users to flexibly expand interfaces for PCIe, SMBus, USB 2.0/3.0, LPC line-out, power supplies, or DP, all based on user needs. Advantech MIO-5272 is a high performance, highly reliable and flexible SBC product.
Patented High-performance Thermal Solution
MIO-5272 is supported by Advantech’s proprietary dynamic heat dissipation design, which uses an active copper/aluminum heat sink to dynamically conduct heat from chipsets for fast heat-dissipation which permits fanless system design. This patent-protected thermal solution has the following features:
- The heat sink can automatically adjust and moderate the attachment force between the device and heating chips--such as CPU processor—to maintain a close contact for more effective heat transfer while avoid causing arcing of the host board.
- The Advantech-proprietary heat dissipation solution allows the use of smaller sized heat sinks delivering higher performance heat dissipation. If using the same size, the Advantech heat sink can lower more than 15°C of temperature compared with conventional heat sinks. Therefore, the Advantech host board, even when it is equipped with a CPU adopting Core i7-grade processor, can normally operate under -40~85°C temperatures for great long-term reliability.
- Good vibration-resistant capability allows for long-term reliable operation in the railway environment which is prone to shock and vibration.
Embedded Software Service
In addition to exclusive hardware designs, Advantech SBC products have complete embedded software built in, tailored to run on Windows Embedded Standard 7 OS, providing higher reliability than general embedded OS.
