3.5-inch Tiger Lake-U SBC promoted for healthcare applications

Jan 14, 2022 — by Eric Brown 202 views

Nexcom’s Linux-ready, 3.5-inch “X200” SBC runs on an 11th Gen U-series CPU and offers triple and 4Kp60 support, 2x GbE, 4x USB 3.2 Gen2, SATA, M.2 M- and E-key slots, and -20 to 70°C support.

Nexcom announced a 3.5-inch SBC that runs Linux or Win 10 on an 11th Gen Tiger Lake-U processor, which it previously adopted for its NDiS B360 signage player. Other 3.5-inch Tiger Lake-U boards include Commell’s LE-370, Ibase’s IB953, Aaeon’s GENE-TGU6, and Kontron’s 3.5”-SBC-TGL.

Nexcom pitches the X200 board as an ideal solution for visual inspection or imagery analysis in the healthcare field, noting its triple independent display and 4Kp60 support. Other cited applications include signage and security, which Nexcom also promotes for use in hospitals. The board offers an ISO 13485 medical device certification.

Like the Commell LE-370, the X200 is limited to 32GB DDR4 instead of 64GB like the other Tiger Lake 3.5-inchers listed above. The X200 is also the only board in the group promoted for triple rather than quadruple independent displays, and unlike the Aaeon, Commell, and Kontron boards there is no 2.5GbE port. On the other hand, the X200 joins Aaeon and Commell in offering 4x USB 3.2 Gen2 ports for up to 10Gbps throughput, and it is the only board in the group with a -20 to 70°C range rather than 0 to 60°C.


The X200 provides an M.2 E-key slot for WiFi/BT and an M.2 Key M 2280 (PCIe x4) for an SSD or an HDMI 2.0 input capture card. Other highlights include SATA with power, a speaker/amp header, and a 12V power output.
