Advantech has released a series of new embedded I/O modules for Touch, CANBus, Parallel, Serial, GigaLAN, SATA III, and USB 3.0 using a standard full-size MiniPCIe interface. Using this standard design, customers can extend extra interface ports without board modification and integrate with their solutions to fulfill a diverse range embedded applications for industrial PC, embedded, transportation, automation, and networking infrastructure systems.
The EMCB-200U CANBus Port Module is designed as a full-size Mini PCIe and module type combo solution. For CANBus modules, Advantech has developed a series of APIs for customers to access CAN protocols. CANOpen, which is a license-based protocol, was also released with the CANBus modules as an alternative option.
The EMIO-100P USB to Parallel Printer port module is manufactured according to the IEEE 1284 parallel printer port standard. Fully USB 1.1 compliant, the adapter supports bi-directional parallel interface communications.
The EMIO-100S USB to High-Speed Serial port module is fully USB 2.0 compliant and supports bi-directional serial interface communications.
Advantech will release more new Embedded I/O modules such as EMIO-100E (Giga LAN port), EMIO-200SA (Serial ATA port), and EMIO-200U3 (USB 3.0 port) I/O module later in 2014.
