3.5” SubCompact Board with Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3/Celeron® Processor SoC



Sporting the 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processor SoC (formerly Skylake), the GENE-SKU6 delivers enhanced performance over its preceding models in the series with the latest integrated chipset, and DDR4 memory support of up of 8 GB. Some of the most popular expansion interface and I/Os, such as MiniCards, mSATA, and also AAEON’s unique BIO interface for speedy customization, are also featured in the device, making it ideally suited for any industrial or embedded computing applications.

Flexible Expansion
The GENE-SKU6 offers a unique BIO (board-to-board I/O) to connect a Daughter Board for additional I/O port expansion, allowing users to implement their desired features without investing heavily in R&D.

Wise in Design
The CPU is located on the solder side of the board and is accompanied by a heat spreader, enabling effective heat dissipation and vertical space reduction. This compact-sized device is best suited for confined environments.

PoE Support
PoE (Power over Ethernet) support is available for optional expansion. This feature provides connection to devices, such as wireless access points or IP camera, thus minimizing the fuss of traditional deployments with long power lines or limitations caused by limited power outlets.

AAEON present the PICO-APL1 single board computer (SBC) featuring a compact and slim design, fan-less operation, a wide thermal operating envelope, in addition to impressive I/O. Based on the Intel® ATOM™/Pentium®/Celeron® processors, the PICO-APL1 are incredibly energy efficient with outstanding low power consumption, while delivering reliably impressive performance. SATA 3.0, mSATA, and MiniCard expansion slots, in conjunction with a BIO connection for daughter boards, enable a huge range of expansion opportunities. Full support for triple displays, and 4K x 2K HDMI make the PICO-APL1 ideal for a broad range of deployment scenarios.
