Taiwan Commate Computer Inc.(COMMELL), the worldwide leader of Industrial Single Board Computers, launched PICMG 1.3 SBC with Q67 Chipset.

FS-A74 designed for the 2nd generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors in the LGA1155 by the Q67 chipset. Theses platform supports Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0,  to provide even more performance when needed on the latest-generation Intel® microarchitecture code name Sandy Bridge. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency if it's operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits, along with a intel 2nd generation 32 nm Core i7/i5/i3, the Intel processors  with HD Graphic 3000 that contains a refresh of the sixth generation graphics core enabling substantial gains in performance and lower power consumption, this innovative two-chip platform delivers higher performance, energy efficiency, most secure and manageable, It is ideal for a various range of applications, such as industrial control and automation, gaming, Medical Instruments, Surveillance Server, Military systems, print imaging and digital signage etc.

FS-A74 SBC is based on Q67 chipset, and equipped with DDR3 1066/1333 MT/s data transfer rates memory up to a maximum of 16GB in dual DIMM slots. FS-A74 supports VGA, DVI. 5 x RS232C and 1 x RS232/422/485 ports, Networking is provided by Intel 2 x 82574L Giga LAN, 8 x USB2.0 ports, High Definition Audio port, 4 SATA2.0 and 2 SATA3.0, two Mini-PCIE expansion slots & 1 x SIM socket.
