FS-A78 PICMG 1.3 - PICMG 1.3 SBC Core 4th Gen i7/i5/i3 Desktop Q87 SBC

Product image


The FS-A78 is designed for the 4th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors in the LGA1150 using the Q87 chipset.  It is part of the desktop Intel 7 Series Chipset family, along with an Intel 4th generation 22nm Core i7/i5/i3, the Intel processors with HD Graphic 4000 that contains a refresh of the seventh generation graphics core gives DX11 smoother rendering at higher resolutions for an improved 3D experience, OGL4.X  Improved realism for OGL 3D based applications and lower power consumption. This innovative two-chip solution provides Intel Intel Hyper-Threading technology which gives smart multitasking performance to move between applications quickly. This platform delivers higher performance, energy efficiency and is more secure and manageable. It is ideal for a various range of applications such as industrial control and automation, gaming, Medical Instruments, Surveillance Server, Military systems, print imaging and digital signage etc..

The FS-A78 SBC is based on the Q87 chipset, and equipped with DDR3/DDR3L 1333/1600MT/s data transfer rates for memory up to a maximum of 16GB in dual DIMM slots.

The FS-A78 supports display port, VGA, DVI, LVDS. 5 x RS232 and 1 x RS232/422/485 ports. Networking is provided by Intel 1 x I210 Giga LAN and 1 x I210-LM Giga LAN, 4 x USB2.0 ports, 6 x USB3.0 ports, High Definition Audio port, 4 SATA3.0, one Mini-PCIE expansion slot.

The onboard Intel® I210-LM GbE controller supports the Intel® AMT 9.0 feature on the primary LAN port. The BIOS is ready to support the Intel® AMT 9.0 feature. The necessary prerequisite is your CPU must support Intel® vPro technology e.g. Intel ® Core i7.

For further instructions about the Intel® AMT features and set up, please refer to the iAMT Setting.pdf
