Advantech MIC-770 V2 Certified on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to Ensure Reliable AIoT Applications
Advantech, a leading global provider of intelligent systems and industrial edge computers, is excited to announce that its MIC-770 V2 modular fanless edge IPC is certified for use with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. MIC-770-V2 is powered by a 10th generation Intel® Xeon®/Core™ i socket-type (LGA1200) processor with Intel® W480E chipset, offering excellent computing performance and flexible expandability using MIC i-Modules and Advantech iDoor modules, which are the best choice for machine automation and AIoT applications across a range of diverse scenarios. With the certification of Ubuntu 20.04, Canonical, the publisher of Ubuntu guarantees regular updates and extended security maintenance (ESM) for 5 years. This means a secure and reliable IoT platform for AI and edge computing applications.
MIC-770 V2 - Secure Intelligent Systems for AIoT Applications with Ubuntu 20.04
Canonical and Advantech have collaborated to help enterprises accelerate the deployment of Edge AIoT applications with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS certified on MIC-770 V2. As IoT integration continues, Ubuntu is increasingly tasked with running robotics, autonomous vehicles, drones, and many other automated applications. The Ubuntu certification is a long-term commitment to ensure that the latest security updates are continuously tested on the MIC-770 V2 in Canonical’s labs. . The certified MIC-770 thus benefits from Ubuntu 20.04 enhanced security and stability throughout the 10-year lifecycle of the Ubuntu release, including constant security patching process and features like kernel self protection, stack-clash protection, control flow integrity, and more. Consequently, MIC-770 V2 is the ideal AIoT platform for customers involved in AIoT and machine control, alongside other diverse applications in the industrial automation field.
Industrial-grade and Compact Fanless Design with Remote Management Support
MIC-770 V2 is a fanless and compact modular IPC system that supports a wide range of power inputs (9 ~ 36 VDC), and operating temperatures of -10~60°C. MIC-770 V2 overcomes dust accumulation, greatly increasing product reliability, whilst reducing equipment maintenance costs. The fanless design with a passive thermal solution also brings the advantage of silent operation. The ruggedized chassis design and cast extruded aluminum heatsink offers vibration and shock protection, which means MIC-770 V2 can be used in harsh outdoor environments, noise-sensitive indoor environments, or remote locations. MIC-770 V2 supports Advantech’s SUSI API and WISE-DeviceOn remote management software. It also comes with the OS deployment-ready snaps and over the air upgrade for expedient management and system protection, facilitating industrial leading remote operations and management for developers.
High Performance-to-Cost Solution with Strong I/O Flexibility
MIC-770 V2 supports 2 x GigaLAN, 2 x USB 3.2, 6 x USB 3.2, and dual displays located in the front panel for convenient cabling, which were all tested by Canonical to confirm that each I/O works properly on MIC-770 V2 with Ubuntu to meet industrial grade standards. In addition, MIC-770 V2 is equipped with various expansion modules via the inclusion of a mini PCIe I/F onboard, including Advantech’s iDoor industrial fieldbus, MIC i-Modules, smart I/O, and communication modules, which can all be added for enhanced functionality and flexibility. The pre-installed Ubuntu and short lead-time of Advantech’s configure-to-order service (CTOS) helps customers reduce their system configuration and time-to-market deployment in the most cost-effective way.
