Understanding the Industrial Motherboards Nov 18, 2022

To meet the progressive demands of industrial motherboard computing systems, a wide variety of industrial motherboards are appearing in the market today.

For desktop and rack-mount computer use, ATX system boards and micro-ATX motherboards are the general choices, depending on your computing needs.


Advantages of Industrial Motherboards over Commercial Models

When choosing a motherboard type, it’s best to opt for those that are manufactured by an industrial manufacturer, as compared to finding a commercialized model, which can cost more in the long run.

For instance, most industrial motherboards have a standard form factor. This feature allows for upgrades to the device without posing the problem of incompatibility with the circuit. Also, there are some manufacturers who create motherboards that limit revisions and upgrades to a smaller margin, hence lessening the frequency of expensive maintenance and upgrades.

In addition to this, this kind of motherboard is also beneficial to those who require a more adaptable kind of expansion card, as it promotes manageability and longevity of the product.


Development of ATX Motherboard

The ATX board is both a historical step in the development of industrial motherboards and the product of a series of upgrades from its predecessor, the Baby-AT form factor. This is because engineers found three main areas that required major reconstruction and improvements for better functionality and efficient usage of the motherboard.

One of the key areas that was improved by ATX boards is the consideration of installing additional or future I/Os and other technology. This allows the ATX industrial motherboards to adapt to other innovations without having to undergo major revisions.

Another problematic aspect that was dealt with by the ATX motherboard is the ease of use. With ATX, there is now a better functionality and user-friendly aspect to the device, compared to form factors that came before it.

Lastly, there is also the issue of system costs. The change that was made enabled the ATX board to have reduced overall system cost through various methods, including the integration of I/O to the board for the option of using shorter cables. Shorter cables are actually a great benefit for industrial motherboards, as they lower manufacturing time and holding costs because of the fewer number of cables.
