ASRock venture into industrial motherboard market
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
ASRock has cemented itself as a veteran motherboard manufacturer by introducing its first industrial class motherboard. The reason for the first board being so important is the production line must produce 100% error free boards, any error could cost the companies reputation and a huge shipment of boards. ASRock will be including three new models, the IMB-140, IMB-141 and IMB-142. All will be based on Intel’s Atom D2700.
According to TechPowerUp the layouts of the three boards are as follows:
The IMB-140 is heavy on connectivity, it includes three serial bus ports, dual-GbE interface, D-Sub, HDMI, and LVDS display outputs, two SATA 3 Gb/s storage interfaces, legacy PCI, and a plethora of other legacy connectivity. The IMB-141 and IMB-142 have slightly slimmer connectivity load outs, the two differ only with the latter having two GbE interfaces, while the former has one. The two have more USB interfaces, and one lesser serial bus (COM) port. The two also feature a mini-PCIe apart from a legacy PCI.
