Industry type:PC and software
Product model number:AIMB-273
Advantech Co., Ltd.
award 3

AIMB-273 is a new industrial grade Mini-ITX (170mm x 170mm) motherboard adopting green manufacturing from the beginning to meet energy-saving targets. It’s designed with the 3rd generation Intel Core i Mobile processor to save 20% power when compared with the previous generations. AIMB-273 has Advantech's iManager intelligent self-management agent built-in which can control chipset and standby power in S3 & S5 modes to achieve deep sleep and energy savings. Power consumption in standby mode is approximately 10 times less (100mA to 10mA). When a system is in idle low power mode, it will slow down the fan speed which helps reduce power consumption and reduces noise. AIMB-273 uses lead-free materials in compliance with EC RoHS directives.

AIMB-273's DDR3 memory runs at 1600MHz for higher performance. Its 3D performance has increased up to 50% when compared with 2nd generation Intel core i processors. For multi display support, AIMB-273 supports tri-views through VGA, HDMI, LVDS, and two DisplayPorts interfaces to provide high-resolution graphic output with HD Audio. AIMB-273 comes with plenty of I/O and expansion inc:USB 3.0/2.0, SATA III/II, PCIe x16 expansion interface, CompactFlash, 8-bit GPIO, Mini PCIe & Dual GbE LAN provide high-speed Internet links.

AIMB-273 value-added iManager software is simple for users to operate. iManager can run independently without OS. The operation of iManager is simple, convenient and ready to use and does not need to have drivers installed. iManager can detect CPU and system temperatures and provides thermal protection with a smart fan function to detect and compensate for thermal issues and crashes.

AIMB-273 also provides intelligent cloud services through SUSIAccess 2.0 which allows customers to build and deploy their own value-added cloud-based software services. SUSIAccess 2.0 is a remote management tool with system recovery and protection functions so users can identify problems and repair systems quickly.
