Ultra-Power Efficiency At the Edge - DFI’s WL Series

As edge computing continues to be the backbone of digital transformation, it becomes increasingly crucial that we harness its capabilities in a sustainable and economical manner. DFI is unveiling the WL series based on 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors (codenamed Whiskey Lake-U) with 40% power-saving and is more durable than the previous generation. Featuring less power consumption with the same workload is aimed at energy-efficient applications at the edge to maximize IoT deployment in versatile applications e.g. AGV/AMR and IoT gateway.

Powered By 8th Gen Intel Processors (Codename: Whiskey Lake-U)

DFI’s WL series with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 and Celeron® 4000 processors are built on the 14nm manufacturing process with improved performance by up to 40% than the previous generation for faster processing and detection in machine vision in factory automation. Furthermore, it is highly applied for power-effective use conditions in edge computing integrated with up to 4 cores and low-power TDP 15W.

Optimized & Upgraded I/O Interfaces

To cater to the trending usages in IoT, the WL series is paired with upgraded I/O interfaces and multiple up-to-date M.2 expansions. This series is further completed with the M.2 M-key interface supporting with NVMe PCIe x4 SSD that can boost computing performances by increasing storage reading and writing speeds by 5 times when compared to a traditional SATA 3.0 SSD, delivering high-speed processing and transferring to optimize the flexibility in IoT usages like massive data consolidation at the edge.

Wide-Temperature Endurance

Unlike other motherboards based on the same platform in the market that can only operate under ordinary temperature between 0 to 60°C, DFI’s WL series is adopting breakthrough technology and fanless design that can be supported under the conditions of extended temperature up to -30 to 80°C to withstand harsh conditions and endure surge temperature changes in outdoor and temperature-sensitive industries like factory automation.

Exceptional Visual Performance

DFI’s completed product series with Intel 8th gen processors have the capability of delivering advanced 4K video experiences with resolution up to 4096 x 2304 and high-quality UHD streaming media for vision applications such as facial recognition, object detection, machine vision, and digital signage, etc.

High Security & Manageability

Cyber-attacks and equipment security are critical issues when it mentions data protection in IoT applications. DFI’s WL series is equipped with dTPM/fTPM 2.0 to ensure confidential data security, like the collected database of face recognition with full protection of encryption and authentication.

Comprehensive Product Lineup

DFI has developed this series of the lineup powered by 8th Gen Intel Processors covers comprehensive form factor motherboards from Mini-ITX to COM Express Mini and develops an embedded system – ECA20-WLF and panel PC - KSX150 WL - in the upcoming future. Offering a future-proof series for intelligent solution development to fulfill different industrial grade and embedded applications in IoT and industrial automation.
