Enada Primavera 2011, Rimini, Italy, March 16th 2011: Advantech, the leader in embedded products for the gaming industry, will introduce the streamlined integration hardware and software for gaming applications by providing an “Advantech-Innocore Solution Package”. We will be showing the latest new release in our S-series line of gaming boards as well as some of our broad range of standard products: a Mini ITX motherboard for embedded computing, and a series of complete industrial computer systems designed especially to comply with the requirements of AAMS and Comma 6a legislation. Advantech-Innocore provides reliable and secure gaming motherboards, customizable chassis, plus unique embedded software & API solutions to meet the requirements for Comma 6a, Arcade, and VLT applications. Advantech-Innocore Advantages The combination of Advantech and Innocore Gaming presents an opportunity for the gaming industry to have the best of all worlds: a massive consumer-scale manufacturing and support infrastructure fused together with the focused, dedicated personal service of a highly specialized supplier. “The acquisition of Innocore by Advantech has changed our offer to customers dramatically. We are now the only dedicated supplier to the gaming industry that owns its own manufacturing facility,” said Advantech-Innocore’s Managing Director, Edward Price. The manufacturing capacity alone offers huge advantages; Advantech Care Services are now offered with extended warranty, guaranteed RMA turnaround, onsite support and stock supply. “Our infrastructure now spans the world; all five continents are served by over 4,500 staff, 900 of whom are dedicated R&D engineers. As a focused business unit of Advantech, we have retained the dedicated personal service of Innocore and added a manufacturing infrastructure and supply chain that spans the globe,” explained Price. Solutions Designed for the Gaming Industry Advantech-Innocore offers the widest range of products, hardware and software, specifically designed for the gaming industry. We have products for all performance and price levels, as well as some products targeted at regional markets in gaming such as the products for Italy. Based on Advantech-Innocore’s roadmap, the company offers the economy E-Series products for the low to mid segments of the market and the higher performance S-Series to address the mid to highest end of the market. With the technical developments of both AMD and Intel® to higher levels of integration, with everything (CPU and GPU) on a single chip, Advantech-Innocore’s newest products offer great increases in performance, with reduced power consumption. Advantech-Innocore is part of the ‘early access program’ for all the major chipset manufacturers and has a complete roadmap based on both AMD and Intel®. “We have two new AMD products for 2011; one using the latest Fusion chipset, e-Ontario, and the other using the more flexible AMD 785E,” said Advantech-Innocore’s Product Director, Craig Stapleton. “They will be released for mass production in Q2 2011. AMD’s Fusion e-Ontario chipset is offered as part of our E-Series of products, offering good integrated graphics performance, while the AMD785E is offered as part of the more flexible S-Series with expandable graphics options. "From Intel® we have also launched the DPX-S425 based on Intel’s® Mobile Core i5, i7 (HM55) chipset. Like the AMD785E, this provides high performance integrated graphics with expandable PCI-Express X16 options and with exceptional CPU performance,” said Stapleton. This product is sampling now with mass production slated for Q2. Products for Italy Specifically for the Italian market, Advantech-Innocore now offers three distinct products. The DPX-E110 is a full platform in an AAMS compliant enclosure with a 1.6GHz N270 CPU based on Intel® Atom™ architecture. There is a full feature set of I/O and COMs for Italy, including JAMMA connector, Smart card reader, AAMS COM port and audio amplifier on board. The unit is powered from the JAMMA connector and a complete AAMS protocol is provided. The second product for Italy is the very powerful DPX-E115. This product comes in an attractive extruded aluminum enclosure and includes a very high performance AMD CPU and chipset. The integrated (HD3200) graphics provide dazzling visual performance, which can be expanded by adding an optional PCI-Express x16 graphics card to the system for Nvidia or other graphics cards. The third hardware platform for Italy is the DPX-E125. This platform offers very low power consumption with the Intel® Atom™ Menlow-XL Z510P CPU as well as a high performance S3 graphics accelerator on board. The combination is a great low-cost platform with built-in performance graphics. Conclusion While the integration of Advantech and Innocore continues at a fast pace and the operation will be complete by the summer, the advantages are being passed on immediately to Advantech-Innocore's customers. The size and scale of the new company presents a host of dramatic enhancements for gaming customers as Advantech-Innocore has retained every part of its successful business model and expanded upon its offer to the customer in every way.
