A motherboard is an integrated circuit that integrates many different hardware components together in order to provide you with a computing solution. The motherboard hardware also determines the performance and speed of your processor. The motherboard carries out all communication tasks and facilitates communication between the various components. It is a standardized form factor that enables compatibility with many different form factors and processors. This ensures that your industrial computing platform will be able to deliver high performance even with a variety of available motherboards. However, it can be quite difficult to choose an appropriate motherboard for your specific needs.
There are four types of industrial motherboard chips available. These are standard, mini-itx, embedded and integrated. The mini-itx motherboard is the least expensive and is ideal for mini-importers or smaller scale companies that need a simple platform. The embedded and micro atx motherboards are more robust and are generally suited for medium-scale and larger companies that require robust platforms.
The embedded industrial motherboard has been specifically designed to be used in conjunction with a computer case. They are perfect for companies that manufacture in bulk and who require an economical motherboard solution for their devices. Embedded industrial motherboards are usually available in three to six port configurations depending on the available sockets and ports. They are also available with PCI Express cards and power connectors. For ease of installation, they tend to have two-sided designs.
The micro ATX motherboards used in small scale industrial applications are designed to meet the needs of personal computers without the size restrictions. They are smaller than standard industrial motherboards and are normally available with three to six ports. They are most commonly used in notebook PCs, netbooks, notebook servers and other compact electronics. They work just like a standard PC but they have an extra slot for an embedded card. They are not compatible with most standard desktop computers and cannot be installed directly into a laptop or a desktop PC.
The integrated industrial motherboard is the largest of the lot and is often used in larger companies as primary or secondary computer platforms. It is constructed in a standard design and is manufactured using standard form factors. They are heavily built on power-supply circuitry and come standard with at least six ports. However, there are some mini-ITX form factors that have been developed which have single eight port drives. These form factors are becoming more popular and are expected to become the norm soon. With a standard industrial motherboard, it will need a standard ATX power supply and standard fan/water pump that plugs into the mains.
The latest development in the world of motherboards is the mini-ITX form factor that combines the power and expandability of a standard industrial motherboard with the ease of installation for personal computer users. Because it is a smaller design than its industrial counterpart it has become the choice for many small businesses who are looking to build a system that will last in their industry while having the ability to upgrade when needed. These systems are available in both open and enclosed configurations. They usually have at least four expansion slots, one USB 2.0 port, one serial port for connecting a keyboard, mouse and printer, oneGA card slot and one firewire port.
The purpose of the industrial-grade motherboard is to provide standardization and functionality for the majority of industrial applications that require strong, fully integrated electronic components. It is the bridge between general purpose motherboards and specialized design motherboards that are designed to be more powerful and have added features that are specific to the industrial field. For example, some industrial processors use a socket for the Ethernet controller. They also may use a standard type of slot drive to accelerate data throughput. Industrial computers use a variety of technologies so it is important to have a motherboard that is capable of operating with these different technologies and in so doing provide maximum performance.
