AAEON AIOT-X1000 — AAEON’s first step into the Internet of Things

(Taipei, Taiwan) May 20, 2015 —AAEON®, a major developer of industrial computing solutions, releases the AIOT-X1000 subcompact board, the company’s debut into the burgeoning IoT market.

Referred to as “AAEON Internet of Things”, the AIOT-X1000 is powered by Intel’s Quark X1000 Series SoC’s to drive cost down while delivering substantial performance for interconnectivity between the broad array of devices in an IoT environment. The requirement for bringing all of these devices together also calls for rich I/O expansion, which is supported by LAN, USB, and RS-232/422/485 ports for wired connections and 2G/3G/4G, Bluetooth, Wifi, ZigBee and GPS when wires are less of a convenience.

A built in Analog-to-Digital Signal Converter provides for direct connection to common sensors, while the Digital I/O gives the user the ability to add multiple points of control. Access is provided by SPI and I2C interfaces as a means to increase functionality of the end device. Additionally, as an Intel® Gateway Solutions (Moon Island) product, which comprised of Wind River Linux Operating System and McAfee Embedded Security, this product is ready to deploy with support from some of the strongest contributors to the IoT ecosystem.

To meet the demands in a multitude of environmental conditions, the board incorporates AAEON’s unique Wide Temperature (WiTAS) Technology, supporting temperatures ranging from -20°C to 70°C. Four different enclosure designs are soon to be available to address various vertical market requirements: desktop or wall-mountable, DIN rail-mountable, IP67-certified and CAN Bus-enabled, extending implementation from factory floors to the outdoors, from automation to fleet management.

In collaboration with ASUS®, a world leader in Cloud Services, a complete IoT package is available to not only collect your valuable data, but to handle all the processing, analysis and storage as well. Available application SDK’s to get your raw data from the sensor or input to a customizable dashboard application will make it possible to achieve the benefits of the IoT in as short a time as possible. Managing terabytes of data in the Cloud has never been easier.

“From facilitating factory scale industrial automation, to controlling a regional deployment of vending machines, it is undeniable that IoT is everywhere these days”, said Rita Liang, Product Manager of AAEON’s Design and Manufacturing Services Division. “With the AIOT-X1000, we aim to set a benchmark of quality for future products”.

With on-board memory design, the board is able to withstand high impact shocks and vibrations. Furthermore, it supports USB On-The-Go allowing the device to act as a host, allowing other USB devices like flash drives or keyboards to be attached. One of the greatest features of the PICO IMX6 is that it is equipped with eMMC on board, on which customer can store their data (including OS) directly on the PC to have faster access without the need to connect external device / storage.
