Axiomtek Announces AMD G-Series Embedded SoC GX-210JA Pico-ITX SBC - PICO121
Press release date: May 13, 2014
The extreme small form factor PICO121 is designed to meet space-limited application as well as graphic intensive application with multiple I/O expansions
Taipei, Taiwan, – Axiomtek, one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, announces the new arrival of the PICO121, its extremely compact fanless Pico-ITX SBC with ultra-low power AMD G-Series Embedded SoC GX-210JA dual core 1.0GHz onboard.
The PICO121 is built to withstand wide temperature conditions, ranging from -20°C to +70°C (-4°F to +158°F). This embedded board supports DirectX 11, Open GL4.2, and Open CL1.2 to provide great graphics performance and features dual-view compatibility through VGA and LVDS with AMD RadeonTM HD8180 graphics controller. In addition to graphics rich, the PICO121 supports DASH (desktop and mobile architecture for system hardware), for convenient remote management, which means this board can be used as a client device, controlled and managed by a console remotely via a Gigabit LAN port on the rear I/O. Moreover, the single board computer is equipped with one high-speed board-to-board connector that integrates PCIe x1, USB 3.0 and DisplayPort to fulfill various application needs.

Axiomtek's PICO121 provides rich I/O features including four high-speed USB 2.0 ports, two COM ports (one selectable as RS-232/422/485 via a BIOS setting), one SATA port up to 6GB/s, one gigabit Ethernet, and HD audio. This small form factor SBC supports both half-size and full-size PCI Express Mini Card slots which expand system connector ability. The full-size PCI Express Mini card also supports mSATA to provide one more choice of storage. The embedded mainboard supports watchdog timer and hardware monitoring to keep system running smoothly. Additionally, it requests only +12V DC power supply input into work.
"Answering to low power consumption yet better graphic performance demand, the PICO121 supports the newest ultra-low power AMD G-Series Embedded SoC processor GX-210JA at 1.0GHz with fanless design. The integrated RadeonTM HD8180 enhances graphic visual performance. The DASH support provides a solution of remote control. The pico-ITX SBC offers an optional expansion board, the AX93278 for additional RS-232/422/485, USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA and Gigabit LAN ports. This ideal small form factor embedded platform can meet customers' needs of flexibility and versatile I/O. Its applications include in-vehicle PCs, in-flight entertainment systems, industrial automation systems, and even ultra-portable devices," said Michelle Mi, product manager of Product Marketing Division at Axiomtek.
The PICO121 will be available in June of 2014. For more product information, please visit Aixomtek global website www.axiomtek.com or contact our sales representative at email@example.com.
