Four-inch SBC boosts speed with 65W Intel Core i

Embedded computer specialist, Aaeon claims that its Epic-KBS9 is the industry’s only four-inch single board computer (SBC) built to accommodate 65W Intel Core i socket-type processors.

The powerful CPUs make the board suitable for data encryption, video streaming, and advanced machine vision applications.

The EPIC-KBS9 has been designed for accelerated computing. There are two SODIMM sockets to enable a 32G dual-channel memory platform, and a PCIe [x4] slot, and supports NVMe solid state devices (SSDs) for significantly faster boot times and response rates.

For LAN applications, the EPIC-KBS9 is fitted with four GbE LAN ports. It also features two USB3.0 ports, two USB2.0 internal connectors, an HDMI port, and two COM connectors, to handle multiple peripherals. The motherboard can be expanded through its PCIe [x4] slot and an additional full mSATA/Mini-PCIe slot.

“The EPIC-KBS9 . . . . offers a level of computing performance usually only seen with Mini-ITX products,” said Alicia Wang, Aaeon embedded computing division product manager. “The EPIC-KBS9 . . . produces computing speeds that simply can’t be matched by any other four-inch” SBC,” she concludes.
