A new ATX form factor utilizes the fourth generation Intel Core processors. The RUBY-D716VG2AR from American Portwell is designed to provide high performance and flexibility for functional expansions, and is ideal for applications in Industrial Automation and Control, Gaming, Medical/Healthcare and Military.

The fourth generation Intel Core processors are manufactured on the latest 22nm process technology and are the most powerful and energy-efficient CPUs from Intel to date. Portwell’s RUBY-D716VG2AR is based on the Intel Q87 chipset and the 4th generation Intel Core processors in an LGA1150 socket, which have integrated the memory and PCI Express controllers supporting two-channel DDR3 long DIMMs and PCI Express 3.0 to provide powerful graphics performance.

The Intel Q87 chipset continues to work with a new architecture to deliver quality, performance and industry-leading I/O technologies on most of the platforms powered by the 4th generation Intel Core processor family. RUBY-D716VG2AR is the first Portwell off-the-shelf industrial ATX motherboard utilizing the Intel Q87 chipset, and it is a good solution for customers to integrate into their industrial systems.

The RUBY-D716VG2AR offers numerous enhanced features, including SATA storage specification, up to 6 Gbit/s, within five SATA III interface connectors to allow RAID 0/1/5 and 10 modes, the latest PCIe 3.0 (one PCI Express x16 slot) to support devices for double speed and bandwidth, which enhances system performance and PCIe 2.0/PCI slots (two PCIe x1 slots, two PCIe x4 slots with PCIe x1 signal and two PCI slots). The latest USB 3.0 high-speed transmission technology supports 12 USB ports (four USB 3.0 ports and eight USB 2.0 ports). In addition there are four long DIMM memory slots for DDR3 SDRAM, up to 32 Gbyte and 1600 MT/s, triple display including VGA, HDMI and DVI-D available in both clone and extended modes, and dual Gigabit Ethernet connectors are the basic interfaces of the module.

RUBY-D716VG2AR is equipped with another two industry-oriented interfaces, six COM ports (optional up to 10 COM ports) and one CFEX slot. The implementation of numerous COM ports enables the board to provide multiple controls for legacy systems that are in use in power plants, for example. In addition, the board is also built with a CFEX slot, so that customers can choose flexible functions based on CFEX-specific interfaces for their different industrial demands. In addition to original storage functions, CFEX also provides advanced monitoring abilities, portable BIOS for security purpose and extensions based on CFEX interface definitions. Once again, Portwell demonstrates its expertise and experience in the IPC field through the developing of RUBY-D716VG2AR that implements all the industry related requirements.
