Rugged IoT gateway runs Linux on Atom

May 2, 2016 — by Eric Brown — 646 views

Axiomtek’s rugged, Atom E3815-based “ICO300-MI” IoT gateway features Wind River Intelligent Device Platform XT v3.1, and operates over -20 to 70°C.

We missed Axiomtek’s ICO300-MI gateway the first time around, but the company has now relaunched the product to promote the addition of Intel IoT Gateway Technology and the Linux-based Wind River Intelligent Device Platform XT v3.1. The latter is a middleware stack based on Wind River Linux that offers secure IoT device management and data aggregation services.

Designed for “factory automation and smart IIoT [Industrial Internet of Things] solutions,” the ICO300-MI is related to the more advanced ICO310 we covered in early April. The more feature-rich ICO310 runs on 14nm Celeron “Braswell” SoCs.

The newly reprised ICO300-MI is almost identical to a similarly Linux-ready Axiomtek ICO300 gateway. The ICO300 adds a DIO interface, and supports a dual-core Atom E3827 in addition to the MI version’s single-core, 1.4GHz Atom E3815 with 5W TDP.

The 155 x 110 x 48mm ICO300-MI offers -20 to 70°C support, a IP40-rated housing, and protection against vibration (2g @ 5 to 500Hz, amplitude 0.35mm). The wide-range 12-24V DC supply supports overvoltage and reverse protection.

The ICO300-MI supports up to 4GB of DDR3L-1066, and offers a SATA housing for a SSD or HDD, as well as a CompactFlash (CF) interface. If you choose not to populate the single mini-PCIe slot with WiFi, 3G, or GPRS, you can use mSATA in place of CF. A SIM Card slot and dual antennas are also available.

The gateway is further equipped with dual isolated GbE ports, four RS-232/422/485 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and one VGA port. A watchdog, RTC, and DIN-rail and wall-mounting are also available.

Further information

Axiomtek’s ICO300-MI Gateway is available now at an unstated price. More information may be found at the ICO300-MI product page.
