AAEON today announced the addition of the PICO-HD01 to its Pico-ITX board family. With onboard AMD G-Series processors which offer great graphics and 3D performance, the PICO-HD01 is an excellent choice for smart small form factor devices that delivers high quality video, including those used in Building Automation and Automated Pill Dispensers.
It could also be easily built into tiny fanless Din-Rail devices for Factory Automation and Utilities. With a selection of low power onboard AMD G-Series T40E/T40R Dual/Single core processors, along with the AMD A50M controller hub, the PICO-HD01 delivers superb graphics performance and hardware acceleration at relatively low power, and supports DirectX11, OpenGL 4.0 and OpenCL 1.1, making 3D visual effects and dynamic interactivity better than before.

Based on the 10cm x 7.2cm Pico-ITX form factor, the AAEON PICO-HD01 combines a rich I/O set with great multimedia performance and low power, supporting a mini-HDMI interface (audio/video) and onboard 18-bit single channel LVDS. The PICO-HD01 supports DDR3 1066MHz SODIMM up to a maximum of 4GB of memory, one VGA, one SATA 3.0Gb/s, two COM ports, five USB2.0 ports, one 4-bit programmable DIO interface, 2-channel High Definition Audio with Audio Buzzer, one Gigabit LAN port and one is powered by a 12V DC input. It also has a half size Mini Card expansion slot that can be configured through BIOS setting to support either half size mSATA for storage/OS or Mini PCI Express expansion modules.

“The PICO-HD01 is a small and fanless board making it easy to embed into a myriad of smart devices,” says Joe Lin, Product Manager of AAEON’s Embedded Computer Division. “Smart devices connecting to the Cloud need to be small and often need an interactive human interface, and that’s where the PICO-HD01 with its advantageous smaller size comes into play,” he adds.

Whenever Microsoft Windows platform is used, customers can easily create their own user interface without additional coding simply by downloading the AAEON-developed Hi-Safe program. AAEON offers customization services for system developers, and supports all common operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows 7 and Linux Fedora.
