GIGABYTE EL-20-3700-32GB Bear Ridge IoT Gateway System Overview

GIGABYTE EL-20 Overview


Simple Devices for the IoT Era

Forward-thinking businesses are implementing the Internet of Things (IoT) in their businesses right now, and reap the rewards of advanced incredibly efficient technology solutions that can turn data in valuable services and actionable. Being an associate member of the Intel IoT Solutions Alliance GIGABYTE is at the heart of the booming Internet of Things computing market. We create reference designs for Intel’s new platforms, and develop them further into a large range of professional IoT products and customer-optimized solutions.

The GIGABYTE EL-20 series is one of those products, developed as the reference design for Intel’s Bear Ridge platform. It is a small form factor (SFF) industrial computer with leading performance and security, robust build quality and the Input/output (I/O) flexibility required of the perfect IoT gateway solution. Business deploying the EL-20 series IoT gateways can quickly establish and future-proof their environments. By using it as a solution to bridge unconnected legacy system, aggregate data output or establish secure data flow between edge devices and the cloud.

Intel Pentium Logo

Built with the Intel Pentium N3700 Processor

Based on the Airmont microarchitecture and Intel's leading tri-gate 14nm process, this System on a Chip quad-core processor is designed to drive both computing and graphics performance in scenarios that are particularly sensitive to cost and energy consumption. With a maximum power envelope of just 6W, this processor is an ideal solution to drive processing and graphics performance in industrial computing environments.



3G Icon

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC & 3G Connectivity

Equipped with an Intel AC3160 module, the EL-20-3700-32GB offers 802.11ac dual-band 1x1 Wi-Fi connectivity providing speeds of up to 433 Mb/s. It also supports 3G wireless connectivity bringing an expanded range of mobile communications options to the user.



  • Built-in 32GB Embedded Memory
    The most widely available standard non-volatile memory devices to further aid the test and remote update process for customers.
  • Dual Gigabit LAN
    Experience the flexibility and convenience of the integrated Dual Lan function.
  • SuperSpeed USB 3.0
    With superfast transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, users are able to experience a theoretical 10x improvement over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users of long term use of their legacy USB 2.0 devices.
  • High-Definition Everywhere
    HDMI is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior, uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI ensures the crispest rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
  • Wide Range Voltage Input
    Offering additional flexibility for system DC voltage input, GIGABYTE embedded products offer a broad voltage range of 12V to 19V, eliminating compatibility issues with many traditional IPC designs.
  • Kensington Lock Slot
    GIGABYTE embedded systems come with a Kensington lock slot for additional asset management and security. Keeping your hardware and confidential data inside well protected.
