Industrial Micro-ATX motherboard is for AI image processing

Equipped with AMD’s first desktop processor, the Ryzen Embedded 5000, the AIMB-522 is an industrial Micro-ATX motherboard for AI image processing in automation and surveillance applications.

According to Advantech, the Rysen Embedded 5000’s 16 Zen 3 cores are complemented with “a suite of technologies that empower high computing performance efficiency”. The board has PCIe Gen 4 expandability, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, and eight USB 3.2. The AIMB-522 is suitable for factory automation, smart logistics, and intelligent surveillance applications.

The AMD Desktop Processor Ryzen Embedded 5000 processor provides instructions per clock, 16 cores and L3 cache for latency-sensitive applications in smart manufacturing, automated visual inspection and intelligent surveillance. These performance gains are delivered with no increase in power consumption or TDP (thermal dynamic performance) said Advantech. The 7nm process enables the processor to deliver a 24 per cent improvement in energy efficiency and 2.8-fold lead compared to previous generation processors and competing architectures respectively, said Advantech.

Computer vision applications require the seamless integration of high speed digital cameras. The AIMB-522 features four Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight USB 3.2 10Gbits per second ports. The interfaces provide connectivity for high data throughput cameras with transfer bandwidths up to 350Mbyte per second and / or 60 frames per second. As a result, the AIMB-522 is capable of integrating more than 10 video cameras without additional peripherals cards. For extra connectivity, the onboard PCI-Express four slots offer the flexibility needed to support more camera devices or industrial controllers with add-on cards.

The Advantech AIMB-522 supports one PCI-Express x16 Gen4 bus standard for graphics demanding applications. Its two PCI-Express x4 slots offer the expandability needed for robotic controller card integration, while the onboard M.2 M-Key socket supports high speed SSD for real time operating system (OS) operations. 

The Advantech AIMB-522 industrial motherboard is available now.
