The AMI231 is a robust embedded system based on the 9th/8th Gen Intel® Core platform. Developed for smart factory, industrial automation, AIoT and other applications in harsh environments, the rugged AMI231 delivers exceptional computing and graphics performance with an extended operating temperature range of -20°C to 70°C, operating vibration up to 3Grms and over/under/reverse voltage protection.

The AMI230 series houses the Intel® Q370 MB230AF motherboard and is equipped with multiple high speed I/O including 8x USB 3.1, 4x COM, and 3x M.2 (B-Key, E-Key & M-Key) for NVMe storage, WiFi and 4G/LTE options, and HDMI/DP/DVI-D display interface. It also features four Gigabit Ethernet ports making it highly suitable for network related applications, iAMT (11.6) for system remote management and repair, TPM (2.0) security for preventing phishing attacks, and iSMART green technology for power on/off scheduling and power resume functions.

All models in the series come with 8GB of DDR4 memory that is expandable to 32GB, a 64GB MLC industrial-grade SSD, and 12V or 18V~24V wide-range DC input. Operating systems supported are Windows 10 (64-bit) / Windows 7 (32-bit & 64-bit), and Linux Ubuntu / Fedora 24. The AMI231 and AMI232 variations support optional expansion cards featuring PCI, PCIe (x1), PCIe (x8), PCIe (x16), 2x COM (COM5 & COM6), 1x SATA II, and 2x USB 2.0.
