AAEON: cost-effective SBC for factory automation and IoT gateway systems

AAEON releases the PICO-APL4, a compact and cost-effective SBC. The PICO-APL4 features onboard memory and storage along with dual Gigabit Ethernet support, and is ideally suited for factory automation and IoT gateway systems. 

AAEON’s latest PICO form factor board is powered by an Intel Atom, Pentium N4200, or Celeron N3350 processor. By fitting the controller with up to 4GB of onboard DDR3L memory and up to 64GB of onboard eMMC storage, AAEON has not only made the board more resistant to the shocks and vibrations regularly experienced in industrial settings, but it’s also cut application development times as customers don’t need to test the compatibility of external memory and storage.

The flexible PICO-APL4 houses USB ports and connectors, COM ports, a HDMI port and optional eDP. There’s also a 4-bit DIO to manage peripherals and an optional four-lane MIPI-CSI. Expansion is easily achieved with M.2 B and E keys enabling the connection of additional storage and WiFi/Bluetooth modules. Through an optional board-to-board interface, customers can also extend the IO interface and add a larger DIO.
