Compact motherboard extends port options for retail and fintech
Boasting 10 USB ports and 12 COM ports, the Gene-APL7 compact motherboard from Aaeon has a large I/O interface for use in the retail and fintech sectors.
The Gene-APL7 also boasts one VGA and two LVDS connectors. Customers can change this configuration to incorporate eDP technology, adds Aaeon. MiniCard and mSATA expansion slots, an eight-bit DIO, and a speaker amplifier are also built into the board. Despite this list of features, the Gene-APL7 remains an extremely cost-effective solution, insists Aaeon.
The board is powered by an Intel Pentium N4200 or Celeron N3350 processor and has up to eight-Gbyte DDR3L memory. Thanks to the low power consumption properties of its CPU and the motherboard’s design layout, the Gene-APL7 is a slim, fanless solution that can be used in applications with severe space constraints.
Established in 1992, Aaeon designs and manufactures professional intelligent IoT solutions. The company provides reliable computing platforms, including industrial motherboards and systems, industrial displays, rugged tablets, embedded controllers, network appliances and related accessories, as well as integrated solutions.
