A new Mini-ITX form factor embedded system board is designed to provide high performance and flexibility for functional expansion and is suitable for applications in gaming, kiosk, digital signage, medical/healthcare, defense and industrial automation and control. The WADE-8012 from American Portwell supports the Intel Q67 chipset and the latest 2nd generation Intel Core processor platform, formerly codenamed “Sandy Bridge,” in an LGA1155 package, integrated with the memory and PCI Express controller supporting two-channel DDR3 memory and PCI Express 2.0 lanes to provide high graphics performance. 

The 2nd generation Intel Core processor family features a brand new monolithic design that provides greater performance while still maintaining power efficiency. The Intel Q67 chipset continues to push innovation with an architecture designed to deliver quality, performance and industry-leading I/O technologies on platforms powered by the dual-core/quad-core Intel Core processor. Combining the Intel Q67 chipset with a processor from the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family, it enables Portwell’s WADE-8012 Mini-ITX embedded system board to deliver smart security, cost saving manageability and intelligent performance for business platforms.

The WADE-8012 Mini-ITX embedded board includes many practical features, such as support for next-generation SATA hard drives based on the new SATA 6 Gbit/s storage specification; configuration of six SATA (two SATA 6.0 Gbit/s and four 3.0 Gbit/s ports) connectors; RAID 0/1/5 and 10; support for the latest PCIe 2.0 (one PCI Express x16 slot) device for double speed and bandwidth, which enhances system performance; two long-DIMM memory slot for DDR3 SDRAM up to 8 Gbyte; up to 8 USB 2.0 ports (4 on rear I/O and 4 on board); VGA / HDMI / DVI-D; and two Gigabit Ethernet.
