AAEON upgrades to 6th Generation Intel Core Processors

September 022015

September 2, 2015 —AAEON announces COM-SKUC6 and COM-SKHB6 COM Express modules, IMBM-Q170A, EMB-H110B, EMB-Q170A/Q170B industrial motherboards, and FWS-7820 network appliance, all powered by 6th Generation Intel Core Processors.

For the COM-SKHB6, which features a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (H-series), memory support is now greatly boosted up to 32 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz, ECC memory and also support for the 4K resolution standards. Coupled with the module’s latest type 6 pin-out and exhaustive I/O options, the COM-SKHB6 can be flexibly applied to control & automation solutions. For more mobile-oriented applications, the COM-SKUC6 is a suitable option with its power-saving dual-core Intel Core processor (U-series), as well as smaller dimensions.

Similar to the modules, the EMB-H110B, EMB-Q170A, EMB-Q170B, and IMBM-Q170A also support up to 16, 32, and 64 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz memory thanks to the 6th Generation Intel Core Processors. The EMB boards carry the newer and faster M.2 connectors and, to facilitate the designed purpose of digital signage and kiosk applications, they come with HDMI/DisplayPort combo ports and support triple simultaneous displays with HDMI, DisplayPort, LVDS, and eDP options. The IMBM-Q71A, on the other hand, targets industrial automation and banking solutions with the latest Intel Active Management Technology and the Intel Ethernet Connection I219 chipset, making remote management of these solutions possible. All four boards sport 6th Generation Intel Core Processors (S-series), the same variant used for AAEON’s next product soon to be introduced.

The FWS-7820, a network appliance for scaled-up connectivity and high-density networking, benefits substantially from the native support of DDR4 memory that allows a maximum of 64 GB of ECC memory to be used. The device is designed to support up to 38 Ethernet ports from the device itself as well as four swappable Network Interface Modules (NIM), which include, among others from AAEON’s NIM selection: an eight-port module with 1 GbE per port, a four-port module with 10 GbE, and a two-port module with 40 GbE.
