IBASE Technology, a manufacturer of application specific industrial embedded computing platforms, have unveiled the new IB919, a 3.5-inch single board computer based on 8th Generation Intel®  Core™ i7/i5/i3 and Celeron® 4000 processors (codenamed Whiskey Lake-U). Built on further refined 14nm++ manufacturing process and offering greater computing and graphics performance than the previous generation, the IB919 3.5-inch SBC is equipped with USB Type-C, 9V~24V wide-range DC input and optimized Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 15W that allows designers to configure systems with performance and low-power requirements.

“We are pleased with Intel’s long-term supply commitment for the Whiskey Lake-U platform, enabling us to back up the new IB919 SBC with a 15-year life cycle,” said Wilson Lin, Director of IBASE Product Planning Department. “The guaranteed availability ideally fits customer demands for their current and upcoming programs in smart retail, transportation, healthcare, and smart factory applications even in large field deployments.”

The IB919 comes in two models, the IB919AF (Core™ i7-8665UE, i5-8365UE) and IB919EF (i3-8145UE, Celeron 4305UE), both of which feature up to 32GB DDR4-2400 memory in dual channel and dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet. The board drives up to three independent displays with two DisplayPort (DP & Type C) and eDP or 24-bit dual-channel LVDS interface. Peripheral and external connections are made with a wide selection of interface via two M.2 slots (M2280 & E2230) for NVMe drives and CNVi wireless connectivity, four COM, two SATA III, four USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gb/s), two USB 2.0 and a USB Type-C connector.

The IB919 provides remote system management with iAMT (11.6), enhanced systems security using a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip and extended operating temperature range of 0°C to 60°C with optional thermal solutions and cable kits. It runs on both Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu operating systems.
