SBC delivers enhanced performance for machine vision applications

17-02-2023 | Review Display | Industrial

Review Display Systems now offers a new 3.5" SubCompact SBC from AAEON. The AAEON GENE-ADP6 employs the latest 12th Generation Intel Core i7, i5, i3 and Celeron SoC processors providing hybrid platform processor architectures with up to 12 cores and 16 threads, and has CPU performance enhancements of up to 15% over previous generations of embedded processors. The powerful yet compact board also provides up to 64GB DDR5 4800MHz RAM, dual-channel 18/24-bit LVDS and 2.5GbE ethernet ports.

The device is AAEON's first 64GB system memory implementation utilising two dual-channel DDR5 SODIMMs. The upgrade from DDR4 to DDR5 delivers up to 50% faster data transfer speeds and a new, more efficient power management structure. It supports M.2 3052/3042 and M.2 2230 modules, enabling 5G and Wi-Fi for enhanced connectivity. Onboard features and I/O incorporate three USB 3.2 slots, four USB 2.0 slots, and a display interface for four independent displays supported by Intel Iris Xe Graphics.

Peter Marchant, embedded business manager, RDS, explained: "The combination of 12th Generation processing capability, 64GByte system memory, scalable expansion support and integrated onboard graphics of the GENE-ADP6 enables the 3.5" SubCompact SBC to provide a high-performance computing platform that is ideal for machine vision, digital signage, factory automation, AI processing and IoT applications."

Together with improved CPU power, the GENE-ADP6 has a greater AI capability, with Intel's Deep Learning Boost AI accelerator supplying enhanced inferencing potential to make the device perfect for 5G and AI edge computing applications.

The 3.5" SubCompact board features mechanical outline dimensions of just 146mm (l) x 101.7mm (w). The device supports an operating temperature range of 0C to 60C and operates from a wide DC voltage range of +9V to +36V.

The company supports and supplies an extensive range of embedded computing solutions from AAEON, delivering extended product lifecycles and industrial specification components.
