WADE-8211-Q370 Scalable Processing Power Gives Design Flexibility and Is Ideal for Industrial Automation, Medical Equipment and IoT Applications

Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, today announces the release of the WADE-8211-Q370, a new Mini-ITX form factor embedded system board based on the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor (formerly Coffee Lake) and Intel® Q370 Express chipset. Along with four independent video outputs, the WADE-8211 also utilizes the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor, built on 14nm process technology utilizing 3D Tri-gate transistor technology, resulting in increased performance and improved energy efficiency. The Mini-ITX Board includes Intel® Turbo Boost Technology for faster processing, Intel® vPro™ Technology for superior remote configuration capabilities and Intel® Hyper-threading for multithreaded processing. “These features translate into reduced manageability cost and improved security” says Portwell product manager, Brian Lai “making the WADE-8211 an ideal computing engine for Industrial Automation, Medical Equipment, Transportation Automation and Retail Systems.”

Based on Mini-ITX form factor, the WADE-8211 is right-sized perfectly for applications with small footprint computer and supports the powerful Intel® Core™ i7 / i5 / i3 (8th Gen.) and the Intel® Pentium® / Intel® Celeron® processor series. It is equipped with the highly performant Intel® Q370 Express Chipset and guarantees highest functionality on a small-sized surface with Intel® AMT 12.0 and vPro support, 2x Intel® GbE LAN and BIOS configurable PCI Express Lane. It is designed and tested for enhanced operating temperature range up to 60°C and 24/7 continuous operation.

The WADE-8211-Q370 supports up to 32GB Non-ECC DDR4 memory up to 2133MHz on two 260-pin SO-DIMM sockets making it faster than its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports one PCI Express x16 Gen3 (8.0GT/s) for enhanced video performance and support one Mini-PCIe and two M.2 slots (one M.2 Type E socket (2230) for Wireless, one M.2 Type M socket (2242/2260/2280) for SSD).

The board supports four type independent displays, dual DP (Display Port), VGA and 24bit LVDS with greater 3D performance compared to its previous generation. Running with a low TDP CPU (35 watts), the WADE-8211 can provide superior performance in various environments.

“What’s more,” Lai adds, “Portwell’s commitment to long product lifespan and enhancement in graphics performance, security and power efficiency enables a fascinating visual experience in a variety of applications in market segments such as Industrial Automation, Medical Imaging, Retail Automation, Transportation, and Digital Signage.”
