FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PORTWELL LAUNCHES NEW PICMG 1.3 SYSTEM HOST BOARDS POWERED BY 6TH GENERATION INTEL® CORE™ PROCESSOR AND INTEL® XEON® PROCESSOR

ROBO-8113VG2AR and ROBO-6911VG2AR (half-size) PICMG 1.3 System Host Boards (SHBs) feature DDR4 memory support for double memory capacity and greater bandwidth

FREMONT, CALIF. -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., (www.portwell.com) a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and a Premier member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, announces ROBO-8113VG2AR PICMG 1.3 SHB and ROBO-6911VG2AR PICMG 1.3 half-size SHB, featuring both workstation and desktop processors of the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor (codename Skylake) with Intel® Q170 chipset and Intel® Xeon® processor with Intel® C236 chipset.

Rich Features

ROBO-8113VG2AR and ROBO-6119VG2AR share a rich feature set, and are ideal building blocks for medical imaging systems, industrial automation and control systems, digital security surveillance and broadcasting systems.

• Supports 6th generation Intel Core processor or Intel Xeon processor

• Supports Intel Q170 or C236 chipset

• Dual channel ECC/Non-ECC DDR4 1866/2133 DIMM up to 32 GB

• Supports PCIe 3.0, 2x GbE LAN, 10x USB 3.0 (ROBO-6911VG2AR 4x USB 3.0), 6x SATA III (ROBO-6911VG2AR 4x SATA III), and software RAID 0, 1, 5, 10

• Supports CRT, DVI-D, HDMI (ROBO-8113VG2AR), and DisplayPort (ROBO-6911VG2AR)

Radically Improved Memory and Graphics

Portwell’s new ROBO-8113VG2AR and ROBO-6911VG2AR feature DDR4 memory support that delivers double memory capacity with faster performance as well as more memory bandwidth. “In addition,” says Jason Chen, product marketing manager for American Portwell Technology, “these product solutions provide greater graphics performance with stunning Ultra HD 4K across three independent displays, as well as faster 3D and video playback capability while incorporating improved energy efficiency.”

“But there’s more,” Chen continues. “Because these two products support the new and advanced features inherent in the 6th generation Intel Core processors, they boost IoT designs from the edge to the cloud, including Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) and Intel Memory Protection Extensions (MPX). Other benefits from the new Intel Core processors include additional high speed input/output (HSIO) with increased flexibility and expanded HW/GPU accelerated codec support.”

Threat Protection and Long Product Life Cycle

According to Frank Shen, American Portwell Technology’s vice president of product marketing, American Portwell customers will benefit from the new hardware and software security features that enable improved protection against boot threats, memory overflow issues, while protecting data in the Microsoft® Windows® environment. The doubled memory capacity from DDR4 and additional HSIO are especially beneficial for space and power constrained embedded applications.

“Not only that,” Shen continues, “but our customers also benefit from the peace of mind they get from the long life cycle support inherent with every Portwell product.”
