Motherboard that Supports New 8th Generation Intel® Processors New RICOH FB21-L2S & RICOH FB21M-L2S

RICOH Industrial Solutions Inc. (President: Hiroshi Takemoto) will launch the RICOH FB21-L2S ATX motherboard and RICOH FB21M-L2S MicroATX motherboard for embedded devices that support the 8th generation processors released by Intel Corporation.

The two new models support the 8th generation Intel® Core™ processors embedded in the new Intel Corporation chipsets. The RICOH FB21-L2S with embedded Intel® C246 supports Workstation type Intel® Xeon® Series and provides higher performance and scalability than conventional products. We have also added error correction code (ECC) memory to enable better system reliability. The USB3.1 and PCI Express (GEN3) slots enable high-speed I/O devices to be connected, which can enable high-speed data processing.

RICOH's embedded computer (EPC) has the top market share in Japan in terms of numbers and value (FY2017*) and is highly appraised by the many customers who have introduced it to their factory automation machine tools. Our goal is to continue increasing customer satisfaction while developing a higher caliber of products.
