New Low Cost, High Performance Embedded PC
Tuesday 26 January 2010
Impulse is pleased to announce the launch of a new low power fanless embedded PC from our premier IPC partner Aaeon, the AEC-6811.
This new model from the firmly established and innovative BOXER range provides an extremely cost effective embedded platform whilst maintaining a high level of specification essential for vehicle, mobile and industrial applications.
The AEC-6811 features the leading AMD Geode LX800 500MHz low power processor and accompanies it with DDR400 RAM SODIMM (up to 512MB) system memory support. In addition, the AEC-6811 includes one SATA/IDE Hard Disk Drive and one Type II CompactFlash slot for flexible storage options. It also accommodates four COM ports and four USB2.0 ports along with two 10/100Base-TX Ethernet ports for network connectivity.
The user-friendly network function makes the AEC-6811 ideal for mobile and networking applications. This mini size embedded PC also provides one MiniPCI expansion making it ideal for industrial PC applications.
“The AEC-6811 is the new generation of our embedded controller Boxer series – AEC-68xx. It enhances its performance and lowers the cost to meet the requirements of entry-level applications. The AEC-6811 inherits the BOXER’s design concepts and patented heat spreading system. Deploying a fanless and rugged aluminium alloy chassis outfit, the AEC-6811 achieves the target price and higher processing performance. Since the wide power range is another essential requirement of vehicle applications, we not only offer the 9V DC to 30V DC power input, but also the AC power input as well. The power management is AAEON’s expertise to provide a stable and reliable solutions” said Linux Wang, Product Manager of Aaeon’s Panel Application & Automation Division.
The fanless AEC-6811’s expandable functions, compact size, and highly efficient heat dispersing design are an ideal match for rugged applications in factory control, machine automation, test instrumentation, safety surveillance, and intelligent transportation. Full software and driver support is assured for Windows CE, Windows XP Pro, XP Embedded and Linux. Impulse is a certified Microsoft Embedded Partner and is ready to assist you directly with any BSP and imaging support that is required.
