Application Field

The WAFER-AL, a 3.5” SBC, has a PCIe Mini slot and a SIM card holder to support Wi-Fi or LTE modules, allowing the system to transfer real-time data to the management center over OCPP protocol. Therefore, EV charging stations and central management systems from different vendors can communicate with each other securely. USB ports and RS-232 ports are also available for NFC payment system connection. The on-board Intel® Apollo Lake processor consumes only 6 W, which is ideal for IoT application while enabling fanless operation and eliminating CPU fans. Other application field including factory automation, smart home and medical equipment manufacturing.
