Advantech IP-based RISC compact box for IoT edge computingAdvantech is launching UBC-200, an ARM-based compact box computer powered by the Freescale ARM Cortex-A9 i.MX6 dual/quad core high performance processor. UBC-200 is intended to be used as a core computing element in the growing demand for IoT applications.

As predicted by CISCO, there will be 25 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2015, and 50 billion by 2020, so it is evident that the IoT market is looking for highly connective and intelligent systems that can process raw data and deliver them to remote servers. So Advantech is excited to introduce UBC-200, a compact size and high performance box computer with metal chassis, DIN rail and wall-mount support, fanless design, 9 ~ 24V wide range power input, and multiple I/O options. UBC-200 is a stable, efficient product that is able to operate 24/7 and is targeted at IoT cloud-based services and systems.

UBC-200 is equipped with the Freescale ARM Cortex-A9 i.MX6 Dual/Quad CPU, 1GB/2GB DDR3 of onboard memory and 4GB e.MMC flash memory for storage. It supports Full HD 1080P HDMI display, 1 × USB 2.0 port, Gigabyte Ethernet and a mini-PCIe interface for optional Wi-Fi or 3G expansion. The network connections of UBC-200 can bridge all the different devices in an IoT network and link them all together. UBC-200 is an intelligent gatekeeper of data collection and management in your IoT infrastructure.

UBC-200 is a highly scalable, ruggedised ARM-based box computer designed specifically for the IoT market. With a compact size of only 111mm × 77mm × 30mm, and a weight of 312g, it can be integrated anywhere through the specialised mounting kit. The metal chassis provides excellent protection against oxidation, corrosion and dust, and the wide range power input, wide temperature 0–60degC operation, and fanless design enhance its reliability in harsh environments. Lockable DC-in and RJ45 connectors prevent loose cables caused by shock and vibration. UBC-200 is suitable for IoT applications in industrial markets needing a highly ruggedised and reliable option.

UBC-200 comes with Linux 3.0.35 by default. With a Linux-based environment, the development of applications is free with no extra licence fees. Advantech provides a complete SW toolchain, Linux source code package and SW support service for your application development. And, to keep up with trends in the embedded market, the company also offers an Android OS image and BSP source code based on Android version 4.2.2 for application development. An Android App can be integrated with UBC-200, as well as the newest Windows embedded OS, “Windows Embedded 2013” on a “by project” basis. This creates more differentiation and competitive advantage to end products.
