Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) and embedded computing solutions, and an Associate member of the InteI® Internet of Things Solutions (IoT) Alliance, today announces the launch of WUX-7x00U, a small form factor (SFF) embedded board featuring the Intel Core™ i5 7300U and i3 7100U processors, formerly codenamed Kaby Lake. The Intel processors integrate the low power Intel Gen. 9.5 HD Graphics 620 graphics engine with 24 execution units, enabling enhanced 3D graphics performance and higher speed for 4K encode and decode operations. According to Brian Lai, Portwell’s product manager, WUX-7x00U’s ingenious and effective design, plus low power consumption makes the it a perfect embedded board for applications such as medical equipment, IoT gateway, industrial automation, warehouse automation, digital signage, and more.
Portwell’s WUX-7x00U embedded board, designed with a compact footprint (101.6mm x 101.6mm; 4″x4″), features up to 32 GB DDR4L SDRAM (2133 MHz) RAM and multiple storage interfaces like 1x SATA III port, 1x M.2 Key M for SSD. For functionality extension, it provides 3x USB 3.0 ports and 1x USB3.0 Type-C port. The powerful Intel 620 HD graphics engine drives one DisplayPort (DP) (4096×2160) and two HDMI with resolution up to 4096 x 2304, which can be operates simultaneously. For wireless connectivity including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, WUX-7x00U integrates a M.2 Key E interface, enabling ideal communication and connectivity for IoT applications.
The Portwell WUX-7x00U delivers robust performance, yet it operates with thermal design power (TDP) of 15W. The integrated low-profile fan ensures long-time and stable operation. The wide voltage power input from 12V to 19V provides output it flexible for various power sources. With its ingenious design and multi-core processing power via Intel Core™ processors the Portwell WUX-7x00U embedded board is equipped with the ability to execute an extensive array of applications that demand processing power as well as connectivity from digital signage in various environments, from manufacturing robots and industrial automation, through video analytics-based appliances, to end-to-end solutions for the ever-evolving and ever-expanding IoT devices.
