Portwell introduces PICO-6260 embedded system board for automatic control
The PICO-6260 is a Pico-ITX embedded system board based on the Intel Atom Celeron processor N3350 (formerly codenamed Apollo Lake). Available from Portwell, it measures 100 x72mm.
The Intel Atom Celeron processor N3350 integrates the Intel Gen 9 3D graphics engine with up to 12 execution units, claimed to improve performance and support 4K codec decode and encode. It also supports one dual-channel 24bit LVDS connection and one HDMI on rear I/O with resolution up to 3840 x 2160.
The PICO-6260 integrates Intel graphics supporting DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 2.0 plus high-performance, flexible hardware decoding to decode multiple high-resolution 4K videos in parallel. In addition, it supports up to 3840×2160 pixels with HDMI port, and dual-channel LVDS up to 1920×1200 pixels, and is designed with the flexibility for connecting up to three independent display interfaces.
The 204-pin non-ECC SO-DIMM maximises memory, says Portwell, making it capable of supporting up to eight Gbyte of DDR3L. Portwell’s PICO-6260 also features a total of two COM ports, three USB ports (one USB 3.0 on rear I/O, one USB 2.0 on board header) and one gigabit Ethernet.
The Portwell PICO-6260 is a palm-sized fan-less Pico-ITX embedded system board built with the Intel Atom processor E3900 series and Intel Celeron processor N3350. It operates with thermal design power (TDP) from six to 12W for fan-less applications, and supports an operation temperature range from 0 to 60°C and supports 12V power DC input applications.
One USB 3.0 port ensures fast data transmission with low-power consumption. One 5Gbit per second PCI Express 2.0 lane is used as a full-size mini-PCIe (supporting mSATA) and one M.2 (Key E) socket supporting type 2230 for Wi-Fi / Bluetooth module. A single Intel I210IT Gigabit Ethernet controller provides Gigabit Ethernet LAN access via an RJ45 port.
A significant benefit, says Portwell, is that its superior dual-core processing power and high capability, enables the PICO-6260 to generate and deliver greater and faster performance than the previous generations. It also provides great data transferring bandwidth for improving graphics performance, claims Portwell.
The enhancement in flash playback, rich 2D/3D graphics quality, security and power efficiency enables it to be used in a variety of applications, such as retail, networking, Panel PC, and kiosks.
