Apollo Lake DIN-rail IoT gateway packs a lot in a little

Nov 8, 2017 — by Eric Brown 411 views

Axiomtek’s Linux-friendly “ICO120-83D” IoT gateway runs on a dual-core Apollo Lake Celeron, and offers mini-PCIe expansion and extended temp support.

Axiomtek has launched an ICO120-83D Internet of Things gateway that runs on Intel’s dual-core, 1.1GHz Celeron N3350 SoC with 6W TDP. The system has the same Apollo Lake processor and fanless DIN-rail design as the recent ICO300-83B gateway, but with a more compact 125 x 100 x 31mm. 0.3 k footprint and a reduced feature set.

Like the ICO300-83B, the ICO120-83D provides -20 to 70°C support (or optional -40 to 70°C), plus 2g vibration resistance and IP40 protection. Once again, there’s a 12-24V DC supply with terminal block that supports overvoltage and reverse protection.

The computer similarly ships with support packages for Linux and Windows 10, and supports AXView 2.0 hardware monitoring and remote management software. The ICO120-83D is aimed at “smart energy and smart automation fields that need to collect and transfer data from large numbers of end devices,” says Axiomtek.

The ICO120-83D ships with the same allotment of up to 8GB DDR3L RAM and 2x GBE ports provided by the ICO300-83B. While the previous system loaded up on serial and USB ports, the ICO120-83D has a single RS-232/422/485 port, which can be swapped out for the optional, and similarly DB-9 based CANBus port. It’s also limited to 2x USB 2.0 ports instead of four.

Somewhat unusually even for a DIN-rail system, ports are located on the bottom, as well as the top and side. On the bottom you’ll find an 8-bit DIO port and a VGA port. The ICO120-83D features full- and half-size mini-PCIe slots, with the latter supporting mSATA storage. A SIM card slot is available, as well as optional antennas and WiFi, 3G, and 4G modules. A watchdog is also onboard.


Further information

The ICO120-83D will be available in December at an unstated price. More information may be found on Axiomtek’s ICO120-83D product page.
