Axiomtek Announces the PICO512- Its Low Power Yet High-performance Pico-ITX Motherboard


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 proud to announce the PICO512, its new ultra-compact Pico-ITX embedded SBC designed to support the latest 7th generation Intel® Core™ processor or Celeron® processor 3965U (codename: Kaby Lake). With a rugged and flexible design, this industrial grade Pico-ITX motherboard offers rich features of high computing capabilities and wide operating temperatures.


Coming with one 260-pin DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM socket supporting system memory up to 16GB, the palm-sized PICO512 also features a full-size PCI Express Mini Card slot in support of mSATA and a pair of expansion connectors for an additional I/O board/signals including one PCIe x1 lane, one LPC, one DDI, four USB 3.0 ports, one SMBus and one HD audio to meet various communication requirements. The tiny 2.5" Pico-ITX embedded board is utilizing Intel® HD graphics engine to bring a true 4K high definition visual experience with dual display outputs through HDMI and 18/24-bit single/dual channel LVDS. In addition, the highly reliable industrial motherboard can withstand a wide operating temperature range from -20°C to +70°C (-4°F to +158°F) in various harsh environments.


“The 100 mm x 72 mm Intel® Core™-based embedded board, PICO512, has combined a leading edge processor and rich expansion interfaces in an extremely compact size. It provides the best balance between performance and expandability,” said Ken Lin, a product manager of Product PM Division at Axiomtek. “Axiomtek has been aiming to provide system integrators a highly flexible and reliable embedded board of high computing capabilities, rugged features and a compact form factor for various applications in the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) field.”  



The brand new 2.5-inch embedded motherboard, PICO512, is equipped with advanced connectivity including one USB 2.0 port, one Gigabit Ethernet (built-in Intel® Ethernet controller i219LM), and one SATA-600 interface. To ensure reliable operation, the Pico-ITX motherboard also supports a watchdog timer to detect and recover from computer malfunctions through hardware monitoring of temperature, voltage, fan speed, and more. Furthermore, it also supports Intel® Active Management Technology 11 (AMT 11) for better remote management while requiring only +12V DC power supply input.


The PICO512 - Axiomtek’s Intel® Kaby lake-based 2.5-inch Pico-ITX embedded board - is scheduled to go into the market at the end of May.
