b-plus: compact PC platform for automotive applications

The DATALynx mITX2, based on a Q170 mITX motherboard for Intel Socket 1151 desktop processors of the 6th and 7th generation Intel Core family, is a reliable, robust compact computer for computer-intensive applications and logging in automotive environments at operating temperatures of -10  to + 50 °C. The optional b-plus ethernet time sync extension allows several systems to be set in temporal correlation based on IEEE 802.1AS.

By combining a 160W to 320W strong automotive power supply with 6 - 36V input voltage, the DATALynx mITX2 enables maximum high-performance computing for the use directly on the vehicleboard network. The power supply reliably supplies the main system as well as PCIe extensions up to a total of 75W and ensures a trouble-free operation. The equipment with a 320W supply will be installed for high-power extensions such as PoE network cards or graphics cards up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX1060.

The compact high-performance PC from b-plus offers a wide range of interfaces with PCIe extensions for Ethernet, CAN, FlexRAY , LIN, etc. The parallel use of up to three PCIe extensions allows an extremely flexible application scenario for the industry and the automotive industry. The system can also be equipped with 2 CAN interfaces via an internal mPCIe slot.

The high-performance CPUs used in DATALynx mITX2 are ideal for the development of algorithms. These include processors ranging from 35W Dual Core Celeron to 65W i7 Quadcore, up to 2x16GB RAM and up to 3 SATA SSDs (1x M.2, 2x 2.5 "). In addition, highly parallel computing on graphics processors is possible for real-time image processing and analysis by using NVIDIA mITX graphics cards from GTX1050 to GTX1060. The compact form, the efficient cooling as well as additional adapters to the wall months or 19 "mounting frames complete the product. DATALynx mITX2 will be launched at this year's Embedded World.
