Gaming SBC runs on Ryzen Embedded V1000 SoC

Oct 2, 2018 — by Eric Brown 2,163 views

Advantech-Innocore announced a Linux-ready “DPX-E265” gaming and lottery board based on AMD’s Ryzen V1000 that features 4x DP++ ports, 2x SATA, plus M.2, PCIe x16, and PCIe x4 expansion.

Advantech-Innocore announced the DPC-E140 casino gaming platform board in February in conjunction with AMD’s Ryzen Embedded V1000 announcement and followed up with an Intel 7th Gen “Kaby Lake” based DPX-S445 casino gaming SBC in August. Now it’s returning to the Ryzen V1000 with a lower-end DPX-E265 gaming board aimed at gaming and lottery applications that lacks the extensive security and I/O features of the DPC-E140.

The DPX-E265 is smaller than the DPC-E140 with a modified Mini-ITX footprint of 185 x 170mm, and it offers stacked, coastline I/O ports instead of the DPC-E140’s onboard interfaces. The system runs Linux or Windows 10 or the same range of dual- or quad-core V1000 parts and similarly supports up to 32GB DDR4-2666 with support for ECC RAM.

The DPX-E265 lacks the DPC-E140’s 2x CCTalk, 2x I2C, single RS485 and 1-wire, and 32x each of discrete inputs and outputs. Also missing are the iButton GPIO security interface, 8MB SRAM, intrusion switch inputs, precision secure RTC, and power fail detect feature.


In place of these extensive security features, you get a MCU-based, protected I2C port with RTC, intrusion monitoring, event logging, and other security features. It similarly offers a standard TPM chip, secure boot, watchdog, and write-protectable BIOS in a removable module.


Serial and USB I/O is roughly equivalent. The DPX-E265 is equipped with 2x RS232 ports, 2x RS232 headers, and an RS232/RS485 header compared to the DPC-E140’s 4x RS232 interfaces and 2x TTL connections. There are 3x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports and 2x USB 2.0 headers compared to earlier model’s 2x USB 3.0 and 7x USB 2.0 interfaces. Three standard audio jacks stand in for the earlier model’s HD 5.1 audio with stereo amplified 20W outputs.

On the plus side, unlike the DPC-E140, the DPX-E265 provides a PCIe x16 Gen 3 slot and a PCIe x4 Gen 1 slot. The latter is available as a golden finger edge connector that supports “2x full PCIe x1 gen 1.0 ports (non-standard x4 pin definition) and 2 x USB 2.0.” The DPX-E265 also adds an LPC interface.

Like the DPC-E140, the board provides 4x DP++ 1.4 ports with 4K support, one of which supports HBR video. You get CFast and dual SATA 3.0 storage, an M.2 slot (2280), and dual GbE ports with PXE, but not WoL.

The 12V board supports 0 to 50°C temperatures. Customization services include custom FPGAs or MCUs or additional security features.

Further information

No pricing or availability information was provided for the “preliminary” DPX-E265. More information may be found on the Advantech-Innocore DPX-E265 product page. The company will be showcasing both the DPX-E265 and DPX-E140 at the G2E gaming conference in Las Vegas, Oct. 9-11.

    But why they do not used standard size of mini-ITX?! This is a bad sign for future price. Ideally it will be good if the price will be lower than standard mini-ITX + ryzen 2200G, but something says me that would not.
