(Taipei, Taiwan) AAEON, an award-winning developer and supplier of network hardware worldwide, is pleased to announce that Technavio’s research report has ranked AAEON as one of the top 5 global industrial panel PC market vendors for 2017.

A major developer of industrial control management systems and single board computers, AAEON’s latest industrial PC offerings are the IMBA-Q170A & H110A, which are powered by KabyLake and SkyLake, and support both Windows and Linux operating systems. Both of them are customizable single boards developed to supplement existing industrial systems and subsystems on a budget, slashing production and manufacturing expenditure.

Heftily scalable, both boards boast a wide array of I/O expansion slots both externally and internally, making the IMBA-Q170A and IMBA-H110A effortlessly expandable and easily tailored for customer requirements. The IMBA-Q170A supports RAID 0/1/5/10, enabling higher storage volumes and facilitating faster data transferability and transmission, allowing the user to enjoy smoother overall performance whilst eliminating bottlenecks. Both models are equipped with M.2 M keys, which connect SATA and PCIe x4 ports. For maximum connectivity, the interface for the IMBA-Q170A has been updated to feature 2 PCIe〔x4〕ports, along with PCIe〔x16〕.

A Temperature Monitor is available on the CPU/Chassis, along with a Fan Monitor and a Voltage Monitor, supporting an output of Vcore/5V/3.3V/12V. Powered with an Intel® HD Graphics chipset, support for VGA output is provided at 60Hz/1920 x 1200. The IMBA-Q170A provides 3 independent displays, while the IMBA-H110A provides dual displays. As such, the board is naturally ideal for uses in digital signage.

"The IMBA-Q170A and IMBA-H110A boards are two of the most affordable offerings on the current single board market, and the economic choice for manufacturers looking to consolidate their systems with something nice and hardy as they are resilient, resolutely scalable and easy to maintain,” said Clark Lee, Product Manager for AAEON’s Industrial PC Division (IPC). “As such, they are perfect for heavy industry applications such as rolling stock, industrial robots and aerospace.”
