AAEON has today revealed the introduction of a new Mini-ITX board based on the 3rd generation Intel Core processor: EMB-H61A. The EMB-H61A uses a desktop CPU, enabling high performance at 35W TDP. The EMB-H61A is a new powerful Mini-ITX form factor with an onboard Intel Core processor i7/i5 and the Intel H61 chipset.
Support for up to 16GB of DDR3 memory is available through the SODIMM slots. In addition, EMB-H61A offers six COM ports (one RS-232/422/485 connector and five RS-232 pin headers), eight USB2.0 ports and an eight-bit Digital I/O. With the optional CompactFlash slot and standard SATA connectors, storage requirements are easily met. For network connectivity, EMB-H61A features two onboard Gigabit Ethernet to provide faster network communication. As a Mini-ITX form factor board, users can expand the functionality with add-on modules or utilize the PCI-Express Mini Card to easily achieve greater functionality from this small yet powerful board.
“EMB-H61A has a scalable design from the 2nd generation to 3rd generation Intel Core processors,” said Randy Chang, Product Manager of AAEON’s Industrial Systems Division. “As it supports dual HD displays via DVI and HDMI, EMB-H61A is ideal for Digital Signage and Interactive POS/ KIOSK applications. Moreover, the optional TPM 1.2 module offers data protection for Automation, Security applications as well, “ added Randy.
