AAEON release the BOXER-6640, an embedded controller with a 6th or 7th generation Intel Core desktop processor and support for DDR4 memory, which is purpose built for factory automation and machine vision applications. With two LAN ports, four USB3.0 ports, and three USB2.0 ports, it can be connected to a range of cameras and sensors, and its 8-bit DIO enables it to control connected systems based on digital inputs. As it also has a VGA port and two further combined HDMI and DP ports for dual display output, this controller can easily serve as the hub of an effective HMI solution.
The BOXER-6640 is a rugged, fanless system and features a tough casing and an operational temperature range of -20 to 55°C. It can withstand power surges and drops and has a DC input range of 9V to 36V. The system is also resistant to vibrations, especially when fitted with SSD storage instead of an HDD. Additional storage is available in the form of full-size mSATA and PCIE Mini Cards.
