DFI New-Gen ADS Series Embedded Computing Solutions for Intelligent Workload Optimization

DFI is releasing the new ADS Series of embedded computing solutions powered by the 12th Gen Intel® Core™ SoC processors. The new hybrid architecture combines the P-Core and E-Core for intelligent computing resource allocation to increase visual computing efficiency by 50%, significantly enhancing the performance and efficiency of automated production lines and graphic applications simultaneously.


The new-gen ADS Series computing solutions are available with industrial motherboards and embedded systems, covering various form factors from SBC, Mini-ITX, microATX, ATX to fanless computers. These solutions are designed to meet the needs of industrial control, surveillance, traffic flow analysis and other vision computing at the edge.


Industrial Motherboard

  • 3.5” SBC: S53-ADN
  • 4” SBC: ADP253
  • Mini-ITX: ADS101/ADS103, ADP171/ADP173
  • microATX: ADS310-R680E/Q670E
  • ATX: ADS630-R680E/Q670E



  • COMe Compact: ADP968
  • COMe Mini: ADP9A2


HPC Embedded Systems

  • Fanless: EC500-ADS, EC510/EC511-ADS, EC543-ADS
  • Mini-ITX System: WM120-ADS
  • ATX Wall Mount: WM343-ADS


The Intel® Alder Lake processor-based ADS Series utilizes the all-new hybrid architecture of Performance Cores and Efficient Cores (P-core and E-core) to achieve high-performance computing with lower power consumption and intelligently make instant, optimal adjustments to workloads and workflows. With Deep Learning Boost (DL Boost) and Vector Neural Network Instruction Set (VNNI), deep learning can be further accelerated and provides accurate and fast inferencing results for visual computing applications such as defect inspection and AGV/AMR.


Besides the new hybrid architecture, the ADS Series also supports PCIe 5.0 high-speed signal transmission for the first time, achieving a data transfer speed 2X faster than the previous-gen PCIe 4.0 and accelerating the processing speed of numerous data and images for AI and computer vision.


Numerous data transfers, shares and backups are processed through the high-speed 10GLAN on the ADS Series Computers, significantly improving operating efficiency. Also, the wireless high-bandwidth Wifi 6E is supported for the first time with speed transmission up to 6GHz (1.4X faster than Wifi 5 and Wifi 6), making device deployment more flexible and collaboration more real-time and seamless.


In addition, through the 4K resolution with clarity and precision surpassing the resolving power of the human eye, every detail is accurately displayed for image processing and video streaming, together enhancing the accuracy of image and visual computing.


The new ADS Series is designed to help integrators maximize the use of each device, reduce configuration, and lower costs. While improving overall computing performance and efficiency, the ADS Series is also equipped with I/O virtualization of GFX SR-IOV for the first time. It allows the GPU of a virtual machine (VM) to be distributed at near-native performance levels, significantly reducing the latency caused by the software-based virtual machine. The proof of concept (POC) of SR-IOV with Intel also confirms the VM frame rate remains at 60fps, equal to the native GPU performance (the traditional software-based performance is 28 fps frame rate).


DFI's new ADS Series of industrial computers offers a full range of performance and efficiency optimizations. From data reading/writing speeds to the transfer to AI computing, the new-gen computing brains will bring unprecedented intelligence and speed to the heavy workloads of AI vision applications, factory automation, medical and retail industries.
