Embedded SBCs with Intel® Apollo Lake Processor for entry-level applications

Avalue, a global embedded solution provider, have launched two new embedded single board computers designed to deal with rising demands on cost, weight and system performance.

Key features of the boards include:
 - Onboard Intel® Pentium®/Celeron®/Atom™ SoC BGA Apollo Lake Processor (N3350/N4200)
 - One 204-pin DDR3L SODIMM Socket, Supports Up to 8GB DDR3L 1866MTs SDRAM (Non-ECC)
- Gen9 GPU

The 5.25”SBC (EBM-APL) offers dual display (LVDS & HDMI). The board also provides 1 SATA III, 1 Mini PCIe, 1 M.2, 4 USB 3.0, 4 USB 2.0, 6 COM and 16-bit GPIO.

The fanless 3.5”SBC (ECM-APL) can run three displays (Dual HDMI, LVDS) and provides 1 SATA III, 4 USB 3.0, 1 USB 2.0 ,6 COM, 1x Mini-PCIe,1x M.2, 8-bit GPIO.

The SBCs are suitable for entry-level applications including: AIO/compact system, thin client, POS, digital signage and retail.

The Avalue EBM-APL & ECM-APL boards are available from Display Solutions. For more information please contact the team directly.

Mini ITX Drives 4 Independent Stretched Displays

With Litemax’s reputation as the forerunner of sunlight readable, high brightness industrial displays, what better way to push the technological margins than by having WynMax (a division of Litemax Electronics) produce an Industrial Embedded Board, capable of running 4 Independent Displays!

Why is an 'Independent' Display such a big deal?

With installations becoming more space dependant, this board could become an all important feature for future projects.  Imagine a kiosk hosting multiple displays with one System driving it. Digital signage can be shown as a ‘Video Wall’ or each display screening original content, from one source. And with the AMIX-BEGO-A77E Operating Temperature range of 0°C ~ 60°C (32°F ~ 140°F) there’s plenty of room for Industrial Applications.

Using a graphics hungry AMD RX-425BB (2.5GHz, QC, 35W) Processor, we put this board to the test by looping HD footage over 4 Stretched Displays (each having it’s own independent desktop) - different Ratios, orientations and resolutions and it brought some exciting results.
