Axiomtek Designs Overpowered Half-Size Single-Board Computer

Single-board computers used to be small, meek, unassuming things barely ever used for anything more than point-of-sale cash-in boxes and the like, but companies have been releasing stronger and stronger ones over the years, like Axiomtek has just done.

The new product to leave the company's labs, called SHB230, is a half-size single-board computer with an LGA 1150 socket, meaning it supports 4th Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 and Celeron processors. It also has a pair of DDR3-1333/1600 memory slots, SO-DIMM slots to be exact, for up to 16 GB RAM. A pair of SATA-600 slots are present too, along with a CFast socket, four USB 2.0, two USB 3.0 and two RS-232/422/485 ports. There's support for RAID 0/1, and Axiomtek also tossed in a PCI Express x16 (routed to the back plane) and four PCI Express x1 slots (or one PCI Express x4). Medical equipment, DVRs, process control, the network security market, and the field of industrial automation have been pegged as the intended market for the SHB230.

Intel Active Management Technology 9.0 (AMT 9.0) is included (for remote control management) and so are DVI-I and LVDS interfaces. Sales will start in May this year (2014), for a price that has yet to be disclosed.
