3.5-inch processor boards from ICOP based on the Intel processor

10 April 2019 Product Reviews

The manufacturer of Vortex based processor boards, the famous ICOP company, has introduced first two models of 3.5” boards based on the Intel processor – APL-35-N3350 and BYT-35-N2930. As previously, the model designation begins with a type of the installed processor:

  • APL-35-N3350 board is equipped with Apollo Lake N3350 processor
  • BYT-35-N2930 board is equipped with Bay Trail N2930 processor

Let us consider each model separately

Let’s begin with a board on the basis of Apollo Lake processor - APL-35-N3350. As mentioned earlier, APL-35-N3350 board, is designed in 3.5” format. The particular feature if this board is a processor, located on the back of the board. The model supports up to 8 Gb RAM of DDR3L standard with clockrate of 1866 MHz.

Despite its compact size, APL-35-N3350 model has great communication features:

Unsoldered ports and connectors:

  • 4 USB3.0 interfaces
  • 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Audio interface
  • 1 COM port with RJ45 connector
  • 2 DisplayPort interfaces
  • DC-jack power connector

Connected ports and interfaces:

  • 2 USB2.0 interfaces
  • 5 9-pin COM ports
  • 1 6-pin PS/2 connector
  • 40-pin eDP interface
  • 10-pin GPIO port

For enhancement of communication abilities, there is a full-size miniPCIe slot.

APL-35-N3350 board is equipped with rather broad options for data storage. In addition to the standard SATA port for connection of a data storage device, the board is equipped with a M.2 slot for connection of an SSD, as well as with a microSD slot.

The board requires 12V DC. The board can be powered via a DC-jack or via an internal 2-pin power connector. The board can operate either in ATX mode, or in AT mode.

As APL-35-N3350 board is equipped with the Apollo Lake processor, it can operate under Windows 10 OS and Linux OS only.

Let us consider the second model - BYT-35-N2930

BYT-35-N2930 processor board is designed on the basis of the Bay Trail – Intel Celeron N2930 processor, and, as the previous model, has the backside located processor. The board supports up to 8Gb of DDR3L RAM of SO-DIMM format.

Similar to APL-35-N3350 model, the embedded board BYT-35-N2930 has powerful communication features:

The interfaces located on the back are as follows:

  • 1 USB3.0 port
  • 3 USB2.0 interfaces
  • 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Audio interface
  • VGA interface
  • DC-jack power connector

The board can be additionally equipped with the following input/output ports:

  • 2 USB2.0 interfaces
  • 4 9-pin COM ports
  • 1 6-pin PS/2 connector
  • 30-pin LVDS interface
  • 40-pin eDP interface
  • 10-pin GPIO port

Two miniPCIe slots are provided for connection of additional extension modules. One of the slots supports installation of mSATA drives BYT-35-N2930 board can be additionally connected to a standard data storage device via SATA3 port.

It can be powered from a power source with output voltage from 9 to 24V DC.

As the board is designed on the basis of the earlier processor version, it supports the greater number of operating systems:

  • Windows 10
  • Windows 7
  • Linux

Processor boards APL-35-N3350 and BYT-35-N2930 are capable of operating within the temperature range of 0 to +60С and can be used for designing compact and energy efficient SCADA systems.
