AMD R-Series feature intelligent performance, power efficiency, and integrated AMD Radeon HD 7000 graphics with DX11 and dual HD decoding 1080i+1080p support.
AIMB-224 is capable of SATA RAID 0, 1, 5 & 10 to ensure reliable storage and system protection for gaming-intensive applications, retail, medical, digital signage and many more.
Delivering Exceptional Performance in a Power Efficient Platform
AIMB-224 is designed with the AMD Embedded R-Series platform which delivers high-performance processing for a premium high definition visual experience (AMD eyefinity technology supports multiple independent display outputs simultaneously). With average power below 35 Watts and AMD Radeon graphics performance integrated into the AMD R-Series APU, the AIMB-224 allows full multimedia capabilities at resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 and 2048 x 1536 via DisplayPort. AIMB-224 Mini-ITX motherboard offers advanced 3D graphics and supports a total of three independent displays via dual DisplayPorts 1.2, VGA on the rear I/O, as well as onboard 24-bit dual channel LVDS interface supporting a 3.3V, 5V or 12V large sized panel.
Maximum Connectivity for Minimum Resources
The AIMB-224 board comes with high connectivity and a variety of expansion options including: a single PCIe x8 and two miniPCIe x1 expansion slots (one full size/one half size), six serial ports, three SATA III 600 MB/s connectors, two USB3.0 and eight USB 2.0 ports. AIMB-224 also comes with software RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 support, offering abundant data storage and reliable data protection, as well as dual PCI Express based Gigabit Ethernet ports delivering up to 1000 Mbps of bandwidth for network-intensive applications. The platform also has two DDR3/3L 1333/1600MHz SO-DIMM slots which can support up to 16 GB of system memory. AIMB-224 accomodates both ATX12V and DC-in power to provide a low total cost solution. All this connectivity is packed into a space-saving, power-efficient, and cost-effective Mini-ITX form factor. For applications looking for more security protection, TPM 1.2 is also integrated into this board.
Built-in Remote Management Technologies Increase Reliability
AIMB-224 has SUSIAccess remote device management software built in. It provides device monitoring, automatic alerts by email/SMS, system recovery and protection, and remote KVM features to help your application be more reliable and smart.
