The new product family of the Fujitsu Industrial Series includes one board each with the form factors ATX, μATX, and - for the first time - Mini-ITX, all with an Intel Q87 chipset; as well as a cost-optimised ATX board with an Intel H81 chipset. All mainboards follow a family concept with the same drivers. This provides integrators with high flexibility in meeting the requirements and budgets of their customers. The basic layouts of the new ATX and μATX boards of the new family are largely identical. Connectors, such as RAM, SATA, internal USB, are situated in the same places to facilitate interchange within the family. Furthermore, the design ensures the highest possible degree of layout consistency with regard to the preceding D307x-S platform. This allows users to change the platform while retaining the chassis. Additionally, all four mainboards are based on the same I/O design, with only the cost-optimised ATX board with Intel H81 chipset offering slightly less equipped interfaces. Mass production will start at the Fujitsu plant in Augsburg, Germany, in the 4th quarter of 2013 with the latest C2 stepping of the new Intel Q87 and H81 chipsets. Another new development in the family is the first Intel-based Mini-ITX version by Fujitsu. It is based on the Q87 and will be available from the 1st quarter 2014.

Like all mainboards of the Fujitsu Industrial Series, the boards of the new family are designed for 24/7 continuous operation in an extended temperature range of 0 to 60 degrees Celsius. Long-life components and the robust tin plating of the printed circuit boards make the boards particularly rugged and resistant. Their EMC and burst resistance, tested at the Fujitsu Product Compliance Center in Augsburg, also meet industrial standards.

Their long product lifecycle of five years, or more if required, makes the mainboards suitable for use in the capital goods sector. This is supported by a strict lifecycle management with revision control that ensures very early information about design changes.

Samples of the ATX and μATX models will be available from September 2013. Mass-produced boards will be available from the 4th quarter 2013. Samples of the Mini-ITX model will be available from December 2013. Mass-produced boards of this model will be available from the end of the 1st quarter 2014.
