Taipei, Taiwan - AAEON, a leading Industrial PC manufacturer, introduces a new board featuring the Intel® Core(TM) i7/i5/Celeron® Processors up to 2.66 Hz with the Intel® QM57/HM55 chipset: GENE-QM57. This new 4" Sub-Compact board offers high performance function and multiple I/O interfaces to offer options for various applications.
The GENE-QM57 can support a 204-pin DDR3 SODIMM for up to 4GB of system memory. It has two SATA 3.0Gb/s interfaces and a CFast(TM) connector for operating system usage and storage. GENE-QM57 has Intel® 82577LM and Intel® 82574L Gigabit Ethernet ports to support reliable fast network connectivity. Using the ITE IT8712 I/O chipset, this SBC has eight USB2.0 ports, one RS-232 port, one RS-232/422/485 port, a keyboard/mouse port, Two-Channel HD audio with one Line-in, Line-out, Mic-in and supports 8-bit programmable Digital I/O. Furthermore, GENE-QM57 has one Mini PCI Express (Mini Card) slot for expansion. In terms of display, this Sub-Compact board supports VGA, DVI and 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS with resolution support of up to 1920x1080 full HD for optimal graphics support.
"GENE-QM57 supports iAMT 6.0, which enables the user to easily monitor groups of PCs. The Intel® AMT 6.0 reduces on-site visits and acts as a monitor for hardware information with remote diagnosis for IT management." states Eric Wang, Product Manager of AAEON's Embedded Computing Division. "GENE-QM57 has the Socket G1 (PGA 988), which enables the customer to choose the processor that best fits their application. Since GENE-QM57 has a consistent coast line of rear I/O ports with the GENE Series, the end user can easily upgrade their systems without having to design new enclosures." Wang affirms.
For added adaptability, GENE-QM57 has an optional Trust Platform Module (TPM) to provide secure services for customers to embed GENE-QM57 into banking systems and other high-security platforms. End users can also insert a Mini Card in the GENE-QM57 to acquire WLAN for Digital Signage and other remote applications. This SBC also has the option to replace the DVI with a second 24-bit LVDS interface for end users to connect to multiple LCD panels without the use of DVI converters. Thus, GENE-QM57 is easily embedded into numerous markets such as Automation, Medical, Ticketing Machines, Banking, Transportation, Gaming, Kiosk and POS/POI applications.
