TYAN S5542 Server Motherboard Overview
TYAN's S5542 is a low cost and versatile ATX form factor motherboard with variants that are great for lightweight applications such as Desktop Virtualization or Object Storage. The motherboard supports Intel E3-1200v5/v6 CPUs with TDP of up to 80 watts and supports up to 64GB of Unbuffered ECC DDR4 memory. The S5542G2NR-UHE and S5542G2NR-UHE-M2 SKUs support Intel's CPU based Iris™ Pro Graphics.
Expansion and I/O
The S5542 comes in a variety of PCIe slot configurations for large variety expansion cards. A Gen3 x16 PCIe slot with x8 link allows the use of a riser card in a 1U chassis deployment. For desktop and larger chassis the (2) Gen3 PCIe x1 slots allow for additional expansion cards such as sound and video capture. Additional PCIe slots are added by the S5542GM2NR and S5542GM4NR in the form of a Gen3 x8 slot for a total of (1) x16 (with x8 link), (1) x8, and (2) x1 PCIe Gen3 slots. The S5542G2NR-UHE and S5542G2NR-UHE-M2 take this one step further and maximize PCIe utilization by adding a Gen3 PCIe x8 slot with a x4 link, totaling (5) PCIe expansion slots.
