AMD Ryzen™ embedded processor

The AMD Ryzen processor family brings together the breakthrough performance of the AMD “Zen” CPU and “Vega” GPU architectures in a seamlessly-integrated system-on-chip solution that sets a new standard in processing power for next-generation embedded designs. Delivering computing performance up to 3.61 TFLOPS with thermal design power (TDP) as low as 12W and as high as 54W, the AMD Ryzen Embedded SoCs equip system designers to achieve new levels of processing efficiency and design versatility.

Wide range DC power & abundant I/O connectivity

Advantech’s AIMB-228 is designed for wide-range DC power source (DC 12V~24V) that offers the flexibility to fit in with a customer’s system design. In addition, the AIMB-228 comes with rich I/O connectivity and multiple high-speed ports, including:

  • 2 x USB 3.1 Gen2
  • 4 x USB 2.0
  • 2 x SATAIII
  • 1 x internal keyboard/mouse port
  • 1 x Intrusion Protection
  • 6 x COM (1 x RS-422/485, 1 x CCtalk, 1 x TTL)
  • PCIe x8
  • 1 x M.2 B key accompanied with one SIM card holder for easy 3G/LTE module or NVMe storage installation
  • 1 x M.2 E key expansion socket for WiFi module connectivity

Furthermore, the AIMB-228 supports 16-bit digital programmable I/O, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports (Realtek 8111E) delivering up to 1000 Mbps of bandwidth at each port, and one PCIe x1 via golden finger for external Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) module.

Quad independent displays with up to 4K resolution

Integrates the latest AMD VEGA GCN (Up to 11 CUs), the IAMB-228 supports High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) 10-bit (4K H.2654 and H.264) decode and 8-bit encode, delivering excellent graphic performance. With four independent displays supported by DisplayPort 1.2 and the option to use the Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) interfaces, AIMB-228 also has many built-in features such as:

  • TTL/CCtalk
  • 10W amplifie
  • The highest level 4 ESD protection

AIMB-28 is ideal for gaming, digital signage or medical imaging applications which require high graphics performance when located in a noisy or sensitive environment.

Remote management & monitoring for IoT applications

AIMB-228 is bundled with WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn, Advantech’s IoT device operations and management software. WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn’s zero-touch IoT tech seamlessly registers Advantech embedded platforms with identity security and field site settings. The fast and simple setup helps provide instant intelligent edge onboarding, data acquisition and status visualisation at the device operations centre. Power on/off, troubleshooting and mission-critical actions are available at the tap of a button for quick and easy access. Over the air software updates securely send software patches, firmware, software and configuration updates through batch provisioning.
