IEI is rejuvenating the G-Series with a 165 x 115mm EPIC form factor SBC named the Nano-GLX, which runs on the dual-core G-Series LX and has TDP ratings as low as 4.5W. This is the latest, and the most power efficient of the G-Series family. This is the pioneer G-Series based EPIC board. OS support is not listed, but possibly Linux and Windows can both run fine on it. The board is aimed at power efficient embedded applications (parking systems, industrial control, automation, and gaming systems).

Nano GLX SBC

The Nano-GLX supports the 1.8GHz G-Series GX-218GL and 1.5GHz GX-215GL, both with 15W TDPs, as well as the 1GHz GX-210KL with a 4.5W. Also supports up to 8GB DDR3/DDR3L RAM and offers dual, powered SATA III slots. Even though IEI mentions “dual PCIe Mini” in the ordering guide, the spec list shows that there is only a single mini-PCIe slot that supports both PCIe and mSATA.

The SBC is fitted with 2x GbE, 2x USB 3.0, and 2x USB 2.0 ports. Other posts included are VGA and 4K-ready HDMI port, which together enables dual autonomous displays. Also available is LVDS along with analog and S/PDIF audio interfaces. Onboard Input and output (I/O) includes 6x serial, 8-bit DIO, TPM, and more.

There are varieties of the board, which include a TPM 1.2 chip, various thermal solutions, and IEI’s iRIS-1010 module for out-of-band remote management. The 12V board has a 0 to 60°C operating range. The Processor has an AMD G-Series SoC LX (2x x86/Jaguar cores @ 1GHz to 1.8GHz); Radeon R1E GCU graphics; 1MB L2 cache; 4.5W to 15W TDP. It is fitted with a RAM capacity of up to 8GB DDR3-1600/1333 DDR3 or DDR3L via single SODIMM, 2x SATA 3.0 with 5V SATA power, mSATA via mini-PCIe slot.

Regarding networking, it is fitted with a 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports (Intel 1210-AT with NCIS and Intel 1211-AT). The media I/O components includes a dual autonomous displays, HDMI port (up to 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz), VGA port (up to 2048 x 1536 @ 60Hz), 18/24-bit dual-channel LVDS (up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz), Analog audio and S/PDIF (Realtek ALC892 HD Audio).   Other I/O devices includes a 2x USB 2.0 headers, 5x RS-232 headers, RS-422/485 header, 8-bit DIO, KB/MS, SMBus, I2C, fan, and TPM headers.

For expansion, a full -size mini-PCIe slot (supports PCIe, SATA signal co-lay SATA port 2) is installed. It also features Watchdog; 3x LEDs; mounting holes for various thermal solutions; optional iRIS-1010 module; IEI One Key Recovery for rapid OS backup and recovery. It is equipped with a 12V DC input and power header (AT/ATX); power and reset buttons; 12V@2.29A consumption with GX-210KL and 4MB.

    […] IEI launched its Pico-ITX Hyper-RK39 SBC board that runs Ubuntu or Android on a Rockchip RK3399 and comes with 2GB RAM, 16B eMMC, dual and 4K display support, GbE, WiFi/BT, and optional LTE. The Rockchip RK3399 is popular among community hacker boards like the recent NanoPi Neo4. Commercial board vendors are trying out the somewhat x86 like Arm SoC. First of this was the Aaeon’s RICO-3399 and now IEI has responded with the similarly Pico-ITX form factor (100 x 72mm) Hyper-RK39. The RK39 is suitable for intelligent digital signage, kiosk, POS, and gaming applications and it follows other IEI Pico-ITX boards like the Intel Braswell based Hyper-BW. […]
