Avalue: embedded products with 6th gen Intel Core processor

Avalue announces embedded products powered by 6th Generation Intel Core Processor, including ECM-SKLU, EPC-SKLU, and APC-2132. The 6th generation Intel processor offers lower power consumption and better system performance than the last generation. The TDP is only 15 watts and 26-37 watts while the computer is running on full power: this new platform delivers 80% (max.) lower CPU power consumption with 26% CPU performance improved! Furthermore, the latest Intel HD Graphics 520 graphic engine supports DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4, and OpenCL 2.0 APIs. The multimedia performance is outstanding and could bring users great visual experience.

The ECM-SKLU embedded 3.5-inch Micro module, is powered by 6th Generation Intel Core Processors based on the Mobile U-Processor for IoT Solutions. These processors run at 15W thermal design power and are ideal for small, energy-efficient, form-factor designs, including digital signage, point-of-sale terminals, and medical tablets. ECM-SKLU supports one 260-pin DDR4 SODIMM up to 16GB 2133 SDRAM. The rich I/O deployment includes 1 SATA III, 4 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, 6 COM, 1x Mini-PCIe, 1 x M.2. Focus on factory automation, control systems, Retail, Digital Signage, Panel PC and industrial transportation applications.

The tiny fanless system EPC-SKLU  is equipped with the 6th Generation Intel Processor Core i7/i5/i3 and Celeron Processor 3955U processor with just 15W TDP. The EPC-SKLU fanless embedded PC has up to 16GB of high-performance onboard DDR4 RAM to enable accelerated computing. Extensive I/O support including 2x COM, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 as well as SATA and internal 1x mini-PCIe makes a flexible IoT-ready solution, and 4K-capable dual-display support including HDMI, is provided. Options include SATA HDD or SSD or full size mSATA solid-state or M.2 storage. VESA mounting and DIN rail kits are available. EPC-SKLU with a tiny fanless design is ideal for space-limited industrial applications, such as barcode reader, thermal printer, cash drawer, etc.

The ultra-light multi-touch Fanless Panel PC APC-2132  is powered by 6th Gen Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Celeron Processor. The APC-2132 supports 1x SO-DIMM with up to 16GB of high-performance DDR4 2133Mhz and 1 port SATA 3 interface for 2.5” SSD/HDD as storage, besides, mini PCIe slot support mSATA as the 2nd storage device or Module with PCIe signal like WIFI/BT etc. APC-2132 is designed with highly flexible, compatible with multiple OS platforms, including Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Ubuntu 14.04, Kernel version 4.4/ Fedora 24 and Kernel version4.5. With Full Flat 10 points PCAP Multi-Touch design, APC-2132 is suitable for various markets application, such as Conference System, Public Internet Access, KIOSK, Interactive Signage Healthcare and Retail.
