01-12-2022 | Review Display | Industrial

Review Display Systems has introduced a new SBC from AAEON. The de next-V2K8 is a highly compact, high-performance computing system with onboard processing power supplied by AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series processors.

The compact SBC has mechanical outline dimensions of only 86mm (l) x 55mm (w) and is designed and created for industrial applications, including manufacturing automation, robotics systems, transportation, and other environments where data processing must be performed close to the source.

Providing an elevated level of integration and performance, despite its small form factor, the device supports up to 16GB onboard LPDDR4x 3200 memory and extensive I/O and expansion options. It is designed to allow a high-speed data communications platform with two RJ45 ethernet ports, two USB 3.2 Gen2 and four USB 2.0 slots, support for two simultaneous display interfaces with HDMI 1.4b at 1080p resolution, an eDP supporting 4K resolution, and a +12VDC power jack.

Peter Marchant, embedded business manager, RDS, said, “The combination of processing power, connectivity, and compact form factor allow the innovative de next-V2K8 to be used in a wide range of industrial environments. The data processing capability of the new AAEON de next-V2K8 ensures it can support a wide range of applications, including smart systems, factory automation and transportation systems.”

The AMD-based device offers two options employing AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 processors with integrated Radeon graphics: the six-core V2516 and the eight-core V2718. The V2516 offers a base frequency of 2.1GHz and a turbo frequency of 3.95GHz, while the V2718 functions at 1.7GHz and in bursts at 4.15GHz. The processors support hyperthreading and have a TDP range of 10W to 25W.

The diminutive device also offers two COM ports, 8-bit general purpose I/O, M.2 2280 key slot (PCIe x 2), allowing users to add different expansion modules to support various application needs, including Wi-Fi, mobile network modules or advanced graphics options.
