Coffee Lake system offers PCIe x16 and a portable HDD

Aug 31, 2020 — by Eric Brown — 1087 views

Sintrones’ “EBOX-7000” edge AI system runs Ubuntu or Win 10 on an 8th or 9th Gen Core CPU with 6x GbE with optional 4x PoE, dual hot-swappable and removable SATA, 2x mini-PCIe, 3x M.2, 2x SIM, and up to 2x PCIe x16 slots.

Most of the Sintrones computers we have covered are in-vehicle or transport PCs, such as the 10th Gen Comet Lake-S powered ABOX-5210G. The new EBOX-7000 has some vehicle-friendly power features and optional CANBus but is more generally aimed at factory automation and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) control systems in large-scale processes such as mining and manufacturing.

With the help of a GPU card in the PCIe slot, the system supports intelligent video analytics, AI video analysis, IIoT, traffic management, and machine vision applications. Ubuntu 18.04 and Win 10 are supported.

The EBOX-7000 joins other 8th and 9th Gen Coffee Lake based systems with full-sized PCIe expansion such as Ibase’s AMI230 Series and Vecow’s RCX-1000 PEG. The system supports 9th Gen Coffee Lake Refresh, but all the standard SKUs use 8th Gen Coffee Lake Core and Celeron parts. These include the octa-core Core i7-9700TE clocked at 1.8GHz/3.8GHz and the hexa-core, up to 4GHz Core i7-8700T.

The 260 x 250 x 137mm system supports up to 32GB of DDR4 (2400/2666MHz) via dual slots and provides dual, hot-swappable 2.5-inch SATA bays with RAID 0, 1, 5 support. You can remove the entire SATA unit, which is equipped with a handle, a USB port, and its own power connector, and use it as a portable storage unit.

Further storage, including NVMe drives, can be added via the fan-cooled PCIe x16 slot. The slot supports Nvidia Tesla and other Nvidia GPU cards, as well as image capture and I/O cards. Optionally you can replace the slot with a dual PCIe x16 slots, which support 2x PCIe 3.0 x8 interfaces with the same up to 185mm-long, 90W to 150W requirements.

Other expansion features include an M.2 M-key 2242/2280 slot with SATA support, an M.2 A/E-Key 2230 slot (PCIe & USB 2.0) for WiFi/BT, and an M.2 B-key 2242 (USB 3.0 only) for 3G/4G LT. The latter is accompanied by 2x SIM sockets with patented automatic detection. Dual full-size mini-PCIe slots and 4x antenna mounts are also available.

For wired networking, you get 6x GbE ports (5x i210-AT, 1x i219 with iAMT 9.5. Four of these slots can optionally be fitted for up to 100W total PoE. Other features include 4x USB 3.0, 4x RS 232/422/485, and single DP and HDMI ports for up to 4096 x 2304 @ 24Hz. You also get a single-link DVI-I port without analog video support.

The EBOX-7000 is further equipped with 3x audio jacks, 8x GPI (5~48VDC), and 4x GPO (5VDC, 100mA). Other features include a watchdog, TPM 2.0, and wall mounting.

The system powers up with a 9-48V DC input with short circuit protection, ignition support, and scheduled power-off features. An optional 10-minute UPS battery kit can only be installed if you lack the PoE option.

The EBOX-7000 supports -40 to 70ºC temperatures with SSD (-20 to 60ºC with battery option). If you are running a PCIe card, however, you are limited to its narrower range. The system also provides 10–90% (non-condensing) relative humidity tolerance.
