“MANO561, with a 20mm IO height, is perfect for a space-constrained environment,” said Axiomtek product manager Kenny Lin. “Its multiple displays support, abundant IO interfaces and wide input voltage allow users to fulfil adequate AI application in various needs, such as industrial automation, medical, digital signage and self-service kiosks” – operation is over 12 to 24V, and 0 to 60°C.
With an Intel H610 chipset, it is designed for i9, i7, i5 or i3 Pentium Gold, or Celeron, processors up to 65W. Dual 260-pin DDR4-3200/2666/2400 SO-DIMM sockets offer space for up to 64Gbyte of ram.
Triple displays are handled by Intel UHD graphics and two HDMI ports, one LVDS (eDP option) and one VGA port, and audio is via an HD Codec.
Then wireless connectivity options include 5G/4G/LTE with an M.2 Key B 2242/3042/3052 slot, and Wi-Fi with an M.2 Key E 2230 slot and a mini-PCIe slot. “This motherboard also has a PCIe x16 slot for a GPU, AI acceleration and frame grabber card configurations”, said Axiontek.
TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0 security on-board provides hardware-based security.
Two Ethernet connections are amongst wired IO (one 2.5Gbit/s, one Gbit) as are: four COM ports (one RS-232/422/485, three RS-232), seven USB (two 3.2 Gen1, five 2.0), SATA and eight-channel programmable digital I/O.
This list has been compiled from several of the company’s documents, which did not agree in every detail – so check the specs for yourself if this board interests you. The MANO561 product page can be found here. Note: the O in the middle of the part number is a capital ‘o’ and not a zero.
