Advantech Launches AIMB-218 Mini-ITX Motherboard with “Elkhart Lake” Platform – the brand new Intel Atom® Processor x6000E for AIoT Edge Devices

Taipei, Taiwan, 22 February 2021 — Advantech, the global leader in embedded A-IoT solutions, is pleased to release AIMB-218, a low-profile fanless industrial-grade Mini-ITX motherboard featuring Intel Atom® x6000E, Intel® Pentium®, and Celeron® N and J Series processors.

Based on low-power 10nm technology (6 ~ 12W TDP), AIMB-218 supports up to 4 cores with 3.0GHz turbo frequency and up to 850MHz of Gen 11 Graphics, increasing the performance of the CPU up to 50% and doubling its graphics processing capabilities –compared to the previous ATOM generation. AIMB-218 is designed for industrial edge computing applications which require high-resolution graphics and low power consumption — such as retail displays, smart kiosks, digital signage, smart manufacturing, medical devices and smart cities (e.g.: traffic and parking). Additionally, its wide operating temperature (-20 ~ 70 °C) makes it a perfect fit for semi-outdoor industrial environments.

Intel® UHD Graphics Delivers Ultra HD Video Playback

Advantech’s AIMB-218 delivers superior graphics capabilities via Intel® UHD Graphics up to 32EUs. AIMB-218 supports rich display interfaces — including DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, LVDS and eDP; delivering 4K resolution progressive scan at 60 fps on 3x displays. Additionally, AIMB-218 features an improved memory capacity via DDR4 3200MHz up to 32GB with IBECC. AIMB-218 achieves low latency for high-resolution video content in embedded display control applications by using its next-gen. graphics, high-speed memory, storage, and data transfer rate capabilities.

The Mini-ITX Motherboard AIMB-218 offers 1x PCIe Gen. 3 for improved AI capabilities. Its 1x M.2 Slot (E key) for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module, and 1x M.2 Slot (B Key) with SIM card holder for LTE and mSATA modules support efficient scalable networks and storage configurations.

AIMB-218L/J/D (Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® N and J Series) has just been launched and AIMB-218Z (Intel Atom® x6000E Series) is scheduled to be available in second quarter of 2021. Samples are available now! Please contact Advantech or visit to find out more.
