Axiomtek’s MANO521 – Intel® Coffee Lake-Based Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard

Axiomtek – a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is pleased to announce the MANO521, a thin mini-ITX motherboard powered by the LGA1151 socket 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 (code name: Coffee Lake) with Intel® H310 chipset or optional Intel® Q370 chipset. This Intel® Coffee Lake-based motherboard provides rapid video acceleration advantage, multiple expansion interfaces and triple-view capability. It is designed with rich functionality, solid performance in a small footprint, making it suitable for a broad range of performance-driven embedded applications such as industrial automation, transportation, self-service kiosks, medical, and digital signage.

The MANO521 features two high bandwidth 260-pin DDR4-2400/2666 with a memory capacity up to 32GB. It offers two SATA-600 sockets and one M.2 Key M 2242/2260/2280 connector for storage. The thin mini-ITX motherboard also provides various expansion interfaces within its limited dimensions including one PCIe x4, one full-size PCIe Mini Card slot and one M.2 Key E 2230, which offers diversity and flexibility for application integration. Moreover, the mini-ITX embedded board has a built-in DC Power Jack or ATX connector supporting 12V and 19 to 24V DC input with AT mode auto power function.

“Designed to support space-limited applications, Axiomtek’s MANO521 builds on the standard Mini-ITX form factor with only 20mm I/O height, making it a good fit for integration in tight spaces. Its significant processing capability, multiple expansion interfaces and stunning graphical performance were designed to deliver true customer value and help facilitate quick deployment,” said Vicky Chang, the product manager of ECSE Division at Axiomtek. “Integrated with the Intel® HD Graphics, the embedded Mini-ITX motherboard provides rapid video acceleration and triple-view capability through the DisplayPort++, HDMI, LVDS and VGA. It also has an optional eDP port. The industrial platform is exceptionally suited for demanding applications such as slim panel PCs, kiosks, digital signage, POS systems, portable medical devices and all-in-one systems.”

The compact and high-performance MANO521 offers multiple I/O options, including two Gigabit LANs with Intel® Ethernet Controller i211-AT and Intel® Ethernet Connection I219-V, one HD Codec audio, four USB 3.0, four USB 2.0, one RS-232/422/485, one RS-232 and 8-channel DIO. To ensure reliable operation, the Intel® Core®-based mini-ITX motherboard is designed for operational stability in harsh environments with a wide operating temperature range of 0°C to 60°C. It supports watchdog timer, hardware monitoring functions for reliable operation and is in compliance with Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0) for optimum security.

Advanced Features:

  • LGA1151 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor (codename: Coffee Lake)
  • Intel® H310 chipset (Q370 optional)
  • Two DDR4-2400/2666 SO-DIMM slots for up to 32GB of memory
  • Four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports
