Fujitsu presents a new version of their industrial ATX mainboard D3128-B, the D3128-B2x. It now also supports 3rd Gen Intel Core processors and Windows 8 as well as the memory technologies DDR3-1866 UDIMM up to 64GB and DDR3-1600/1866-RDIMM up to 128GB. The new Fujitsu industrial mainboard is available at distributor Rutronik as of now. The D3128-B2x has an extended lifecycle of up to four years.
A strict lifecycle management guarantees users early information about possible changes of the product. The new mainboard is equipped with an Intel C602 chipset. It is designed for 24/7 continuous operation and is mainly used in professional applications requiring high CPU computing power for image processing, CAD applications, and analysis of 3D data. As the D3128-B2x supports Intel vPro technology, systems based on the mainboard allow remote maintenance using an Intel GbE LAN Controller with Intel Advanced Management Technology 8.1/DASH 1.1, regardless of the state of the operating system. This so-called out-of-band-manageability makes it easier to diagnose and fix problems, especially those that occur in systems that are operating in places difficult to access. In order to support this functionality, the board is shipped with a demo version of the remote management solution AMI Megarac XMS by American Megatrends. A number of additional features ensure safety: The onboard trusted platform module V1.2 enables secure computing while the optional EraseDisk function guarantees reliable erasure of sensitive data from the hard disk through the use of various algorithms.
