What’s inside

The heart of many compact system designs is Intel® Atom® E3800 or E3900-based SBCs as small as 75mm x 75mm. These are standalone CPU boards which make possible compact systems as small as 3.4” x 3.7” x 1.3” but also offer expansion possibilities that maintain a small footprint or low profile depending on the application use. The expansion connector features a number of interfaces including PCIeX1, USB 2.0/3.0, SATA, SMBus and DisplayPort.


ADL offers a range of COTS peripheral modules that can easily be integrated for added I/O functions like CAN, Ethernet, GPIO, Serial COM, storage and much more. Customers can also define custom peripheral boards for special I/O or power supply requirements as well as the custom enclosures necessary for complete solutions.
