PostSubject: Purchaser Motherboards Vs Industrial Sole Board Computers.   Wed Oct 19, 2011 1:56 pm

With the increased exposure websites gives average consumers, it truly is becoming more common for those to be looking for the purpose of computing components like motherboards and run into industrial products like individual board computers or manufacturing workstations. Unfortunately, this can be be extremely confusing because many of the specifications and components with the industrial CPU boards could be familiar, but their application is actually always much different.

There are various commonalities between the not one but two, and many differences. Let's first define every one of these products' main uses, subsequently we will compare them in greater detail.



Purchaser Motherboards

A consumer motherboard would be the main control board from the consumer level personal computer that is certainly built for everyday, standard used in homes and offices everywhere. Every PC on this market today has a motherboard who peripheral devices and add-ons such as keyboards and mice, together with video, network and audio cards plug into. These boards are manufactured in mass quantities by companies that include Intel, ASUS, Biostar, MSI, Gigabyte while others for the general sector. Companies that you can buy pre-built computers from, like Dell, HP and Compaq, use consumer motherboards into their systems.

Industrial Single Aboard Computers

An industrial single board computer is a more specialized type of COMPUTER board. These boards are for use in industrial surroundings and systems where environments, power requirements, shock forces and error tolerance levels are considerably more demanding. These products you find in industrial automation models on factory floors, nuclear submarines, open works control systems, along with non-consumer based environments. A lot of the manufacturers you might see associated with all these single board computers really are IEI, Advantech, AAEON, Kontron, while others.

What's Different?

A consumer motherboard should perform many tasks, and is particularly a very versatile product. It uses mainstream processors, ram chips, chipsets and other components which have been cheap and work on a range of equipment. The combination of a lot of these readily available components can be employed for almost any widespread computing task a consumer may want. An industrial single mother board computer, however, is quite often designed and manufactured in a specific task or operation. It may utilize a similar Intel processor as a consumer motherboard, or one manufactured by someone you have never discovered, like Cyrix, but might only currently have one serial communications (COM) port that controls one aspect of an automated welding robot in a very Ford assembly plant. Numerous industrial CPU cards enjoy a bus interface similar to help you consumer video cards along with add on cards (ISA, PCI, PCI Exhibit, etc), and can be connected in parallel, using the industrial backplane, where each controls a new function of the same machine.

Inherently, single board computers maintain a much smaller tolerance for error into their manufacturing, making their engineering and materials costs greater. If your motherboard in your residense computer fails, it is just not likely going to damage any other parts of your system, but if the PC board controlling the navigation system with a submarine fails, it may be life or death. There are various industrial control boards that, if given the technical specs and functions, one might assume it truly is just another consumer motherboard. They will use consumer level processors, ram and peripherals, and many times have built-in audio and video capabilities, but even now maintain these differences around material quality and design and style, as well as function, that makes them stand apart.

It is important to note that one could build a system that functions like a consumer based PC utilising an industrial single board computer given that the motherboard, but to justify the cost it will need to be for a very specialized purpose. Some other places that utilize these PC boards include industrial driver interfaces, vehicle computing tools, medical products, touch mother board systems, large scale hard drive solutions, and many specialised military and government areas.

Next time you come upon a confusing product when buying consumer level computer or possibly electronic component, I hope the change between consumer and business is more clear so as to decipher the ever-smaller line relating to the two.
