The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech launched two open architecture embedded controllers. The UNO-2184G is a high-end, high performance model designed for applications that require a large amount of graphical processing power whilst the UNO-2174G is a mid-end controller for industries that require faster performance, but not the 3D capabilities of the 2184G. Both benefit from the industrial design technique of isolated chassis and logic grounds for increased stability and reliability.
The UNO-2184G comes with a high performance Intel® Core i7-2655LE processor and the UNO-2174G comes with an Intel® Celeron® 847E processor. Both models can support up to 16G DDR3 RAM (with 4G/8G RAM onboard or built-in), a dedicated Intel HD graphics processor, and are completely fan-less enabling them to operate in temperatures as low as -10℃ and as high as 60℃.
Both models come with: three display ports (DVI, HDMI and Display Port), six USB 2.0 ports, two Mini PCIe sockets and SIM card slot card ready for additional 3rd party cards, four Gigabit LAN ports, link aggregation and load balance features; dual COM ports that support RS-232,422 & 485 with automatic flow control and support for any baud rate; and, using the powered e-SATA port, a backup hard drive or USB device can also be connected.
To further aid performance and usability, the UNO-2184G and 2174G come with a dedicated Intel VT-D chipset which allows system administrators to install multiple operating systems on a single device. Each virtual machine can then take control of the parts of the hardware that it needs to perform its tasks.
