Fortified with intelligent power handling and a 9V~36V DC input range, the IB838 ensures reliability and consistent operations in transportation applications that may encounter variable power conditions. Versatile connectivity makes it ideal for automation processes and data acquisition systems. The SBC offers Type-C, DP++, and eDP or LVDS display options, along with a rich set of I/O interfaces, including two Intel® PCI-E 2.5G LAN ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and four USB 3.2 ports (1x Type-C + 3x Type-A).


With CNVi support, the 5G-ready IB838 comes equipped with a high-speed SATA III port and two M.2 sockets (E-key + B-key), providing ample storage and expansion possibilities. Additionally, it boasts four serial ports and digital I/O, facilitating comprehensive connectivity to diverse devices and peripherals. Enhanced security and functionality are integrated through fTPM (firmware-based Trusted Platform Module) and a Watchdog timer for system stability.
