September 1, 2011 – ADL Embedded Solutions, a provider of highly reliable, embedded single-board computers (SBC), systems and peripherals for use under harsh environmental conditions, today has announced the release of its ADLQM67PC Sandy Bridge single board computer. The ADLQM67PC features the 2nd generation Intel Core™ i7 processor that incorporate Intel’s latest embedded two-chip platform. This 2nd generation i7 processor integrates Intel’s HD Graphics 3000 engine with AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) as well as the memory controller functions of a traditional GMCH. The QM67 Platform Controller Hub (PCH) provides PCI-Express I/O bandwidth at twice the speed (5 Gbps) of previous i7 or Core 2 Duo platforms.
The ADLQM67PC is ideal for rugged applications where high processor performance is critical. It brings unparalleled performance to applications such as radar and sonar processing, image signal processing, tactical command and control, surveillance and reconnaissance, transportation and railway.
In addition to the wide range of rugged and harsh environment applications in which the ADLQM67PC can excel, it also supports a healthy set of features. The ADLQM67PC has a discrete 16-bit digital I/O port as well as separate VGA, LVDS, HDMI and Display Port interfaces. The ADLQM67PC also has 2x RS232 COM ports, 2x SATA 6Gb/s with RAID support, 8x USB2.0, two bootable Gigabit Ethernet LAN, HDA 7.1, and type 1 bottom-stacking PCI express V2.0 supporting Gen2 throughput of 5 GT/s are just a few of the available features.
According to JC Ramirez, ADL Embedded Solutions Product Manager, “Two key features that will make the ADLQM67PC a popular high-performance computing platform is the ability to offload general purpose computing onto the GPU, and the added flexibility and 5Gbps bandwidth of the second generation PCI-express bus which make possible tantalizing high-performance peripherals such as 10G Ethernet in the near future.”
