Atom-powered SBC does rich multimedia, offers 3G

May 10, 2013 — by Rick Lehrbaum — 2734 views

Aaeon announced a Linux-friendly ‘EPIC’ form-factor SBC (single-board computer) based on a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600 processor, which is bottom-mounted for efficient heat transfer. The EPC-CV1 supports up to 2GB RAM, offers dual-display HD video output, provides gig-Ethernet, USB, serial, and SATA ports, and accommodates a 3G cellular module and SIM.

Aaeon expects the EPC-CV1 to be used in a variety of point-of-sale, point-of-information, and point-of-care applications requiring high-resolution graphics and high-speed wired or wireless connectivity. The board conforms to the PC/104 Consortium’s 4.5 x 6.5-inch EPIC footprint, and occupies about one inch of vertical space when fitted with its bottom-side reference heatsink.

The EPC-CV1’s AMD HD7410M video controller supports 1080p HDMI, VGA, and 24-bit dual-channel LVDS outputs, and provides Open GL graphics software standards. It also integrates an HD audio interface.
