Advantech MIO-5272 3.5" Single Board Computer (SBC)

Advantech MIO-5272 3.5" Single Board Computer (SBC) features the compact MI/O Extension form factor and is powered by Gen 6th and 7th Gen Intel® Core™ U-Series (i7/i5/i3/Celeron®) Processors. The MIO-5272 SBC features an optimized thermal design, enabling a fanless, high-performance platform. The MIO-5272 also embeds SUSI 4.0 and WISE-PaaS/RMM to monitor and control system operations effectively and remotely. These tools offer greater system reliability and a smarter software framework for embedded customers and speed up development times.

The Advantech MIO-5272 adopts 64-bit, multi-core processors built on 14nm process technology for improvements in CPU processing, graphics, security, and I/O flexibility. The MIO-5272 includes a dedicated graphics core (Intel HD Graphics 520) with DirectX 11.3, OpenGL 4.4, OpenCL 2.1, and 4K encoding/decoding. This SBC also supports triple independent displays, including HDMI, VGA, and 48-bit LVDS interfaces. These features increase possibilities for multimedia application development. Low power dual 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L memory and TPM are also supported, making the MIO-5272 suitable for various high-level embedded applications.
