Apollo Lake Pico-ITX SBC supplies mini-PCIe and M.2 expansion


Axiomtek – a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is pleased to introduce the PICO319, a low power yet powerful fanless Pico-ITX SBC powered by the onboard Intel® Atom® x5-E3940 quad-core processor (code name: Apollo Lake). The noise-free pico-ITX motherboard offers combinations of ruggedness, high computing capabilities and enhanced graphics capability in an extremely compact size of only 100 x 72 mm. Moreover, the board features 12V DC power supply input with AT Auto Power On function. It brings a solid and standardized platform for industrial automation, transportation and retail applications.

The tiny 2.5-inch embedded board PICO319 comes with one 204-pin DDR3L-1867 SO-DIMM socket for up to 8GB of system memory. A dual-display capability is available through DisplayPort and 18/24-bit single/dual channel LVDS ports. For extensive storage needs, this compact embedded motherboard has one M.2 Key B slot (22 x 42 mm or 30 x 42 mm) for SATA or PCIe x2 SSD card and one half-size PCI Express Mini Card slot in support of mSATA.

“The PICO319’s fanless and ultra-compact design allows easy installation in space-constraint environments and more flexible product designs. The 2.5” embedded board provides various expansion interfaces within its limited dimensions including an M.2 Key B slot for a cellular module and a half-size PCIe Mini Card slot for a wireless module, which offers diversity and flexibility for application integration. In addition, the board comes with two Gigabit Ethernet ports with Intel® Ethernet Controller I211-AT in support of Wake-on-LAN and PXE Boot ROM,” said Michelle Mi, a product manager of Product PM Division at Axiomtek. “ Axiomtek’s PICO319 can operate under wide temperature settings ranging from -40 to 70°C, making it an ideal solution for use in rugged and harsh environments.”

The Intel® Atom®-based pico-ITX board comes with rich I/O connectors, including two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen1) ports, one RS-232/422/485 port, one RS-232 port, one HD Codec audio, and 4-channel digital I/O. It also supports SMBus that is compatible with I2C for smart battery support. The PICO319 offers watchdog timer and hardware monitoring function for reliable operation.
