Expand your Horizons with Wide DC Input and Temperature Support from AAEON’s GENE-SKU6 W1

AAEON, a global leader in industrial computing solutions, launches the GENE-SKU6 W1, a 3.5” subcompact board with the specifications needed to handle harsh, unstable conditions.

When hardware is used for outdoor, factory automation, or in-vehicle applications, you can’t always be sure that its DC input will remain stable. However, since businesses can’t afford for their systems to shut down, they need computers that can withstand power fluctuations and keep on running. Fortunately, the GENE-SKU6 W1 has a DC input range of 9-36V, so it takes power drops and spikes in its stride and continues operating.

AAEON’s rugged new subcompact board is also guaranteed to run smoothly in environments as cold as -20° C and as hot as 70° C. This capability is achieved through intelligent design, low-power components, and an effective heatsink, which allows the GENE-SKU6 W1 to function as a reliable, fanless solution.

A powerful graphics package supports 4K resolution and independent DP, DVI, and LVDS display outputs. With its Mini-card and mSATA slots, four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, four COM ports, and an additional board-to-board interface enabling the implementation of a daughterboard with even more I/O ports, the GENE-SKU6 W1 is tailor-made for customers who want to quickly add functionality without investing in R&D.

Speaking about the GENE-SKU6 W1, AAEON Embedded Computing Division product manager Julie Huang said, “It’s versatile, reliable, resilient, and powerful. This board has everything you could want for rugged applications and environments.”
