GIGAIPC, an embedded solution-focused subsidiary from GIGABYTE, is gradually building multiple successful use cases with our prestigious partners in many country regions. We have introduced what GIGAIPC can help on Smart Retail and Industrial Automation, in this newsletter, we would like to briefly present what we've been offered to help customers on vending machine and ATM projects, and why they choose our products.
Bitcoin ATM (Country: Irland)
Bitcoin ATM is an internet-connected kiosk, produce block chain-based transactions that send cryptocurrencies to the user’s digital wallet, often via the use of a quick response (QR) code. It allows customers to purchase crypto tokens with deposited cash. Depending on the transaction size, Bitcoin ATM may request you to type text verification code via mobile phone number or scan government-issued identification, such as driver’s license, before completing a transaction.
QBiX-Pro-KBLB7100H-A1 are selected by an Ireland system integrator because of the rich I/O such USB, COM ports, RJ45 LAN ports that can make above application into reality, with i3-7100U high performance CPU and excellent dissipation design, you can operate ATM for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for Bitcoin buyers.
Banking ATM (Country: Japan, Taiwan)
For ATM application, users need to connect main system with various peripherals like coin counter and deposit machine through multiple I/O ports including COM and USB ports. The system also need high flexibility in expansion slots.
uATX-H81A is designed and selected for an ATM project in Japan and a coin counter & deposit machine project in Taiwan. With 10 x COM ports, users can easily connect to mechanisms. The rich I/O ports, such as the original 10 x USB port and extension USB ports through PCIe card can be linked to keypad, card reader or printers. This board is also with 2 x PCI slots for motion control card expansion flexibility.
Ticket Vending Machine (Country: Turkey)
Evolutionary ticket vending machine plays an important role to bridge the existing infrastructure and the vision of smart city. We need to keep current payment system but equip with more “smart” features at the same time. It means that the controller system inside should provide both rich IO ports and computing power.
mITX-Q370A+ CIOPE-SI (COM Port Converter) are choosen by a Turkey system integrator to provide up to 6 COM ports for legacy mechanical parts in vending machine, and it is also with 9 USB ports and good expandability for all peripherals like touch function, camera for facial recognition system, QR coder or RFID/NFC recognition and thermal paper printer. Ticket vending machine can go beyond current system structure, and SI can consider the possibility in advance.
For reasons outlined above, mITX-Q370A which is with PCIe x16 slot and 2280 M.2 M-Key slot is a suitable choice for this application. It offers the flexibility to upgrade the system in the future
Smart Vending Machine (Country: France)
QBiP-1900A is implemented as controller for Vending machine in France. In refrigerator, each products are labelled with RFID. The RFID tag can be accessed while consumer choose the particular products, the corresponding amount will be deduce through the tags, and the remaining amount and the balance number of the products can be displayed in the LCD display.
QBiP-1900A was chosen because of its rich I/O ports including multiple COM, USB ports and different choices for display. In this project, users connect main system with various mechanisms through COM and USB ports. It fulfilled the needs for digital payment and it also give the flexibility that client can choose the conventional method for cash/receipt dispensers.
