Enabling 5G and AIoT Seamlessly with Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard – Axiomtek’s MANO321

Axiomtek – a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted to the research, development, and manufacturing of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is pleased to introduce the MANO321, a fanless, low-profile mini-ITX motherboard with 5G capability that can be a flexible piece to develop IoT environments.

The MANO321 is powered by the low power consumption Intel® Celeron® processor J6412 (codename: Elkhart Lake); it’s equipped with two 260-pin DDR4-3200/2666/2400 SO-DIMM slots for up to 32G of system memory. Its low-profile design lowers the height of the board by half of the standard Mini-ITX form factor, making it more flexible for various IoT applications. To enable a 5G connection, it has a SIM card slot and an M.2 Key B slot with USB 3.1 interface, which allows adding a 3042/3052 5G module to gain the connection. For display-related applications, the MANO321 supports triple-view with one HDMI 2.0, one VGA, and one LVDS. Besides, it has HD Codec audio. In terms of expansion interfaces, the industrial motherboard provides one PCI Express Mini Card slot and one PCIe x4 slot with PCIe x2 signal.

“Our MANO mini-ITX motherboards are widely deployed in industrial control applications and can be used for digital signage applications in retail and public transportation venues. The fanless MANO321 offers rich features, high computing power, slim-size form factor and graphics-rich performance. With 5G capability and its low latency, the MANO321 can make the IoT truly feasible in the manufacturing industry. In terms of space, its low-profile design is an excellent choice for limited space and installation flexibility,”

said Kenny Lin, the product manager of the Product Planning Division at Axiomtek.
