AEC-6410 embedded controller

AAEON Technology Inc. has introduced a new member of the AAEON BOXER Lite series. The AEC-6410 embedded controller targets the entry-level industrial control market, often requiring lower costs and fewer functions.

The debut of the AEC-6410 completes the AAEON BOXER product line that represents features at a cost-effective rate, according to the company. The new embedded controller conforms to the market trend—it is environmentally safe and performs with low power consumption.

The AEC-6410 is built with the AMD Geode LX800 processor (up to 500MHz) and up to 512MB of DDR 400 SODIMM system memory. The fanless and compact design makes the AEC-6410 an ideal low power system for any embedded project. In addition, the AEC-6410 offers flexible I/O interfaces and expansion slots that provides users cost-saving solutions to expand their existing systems. The unit features two 10/100Base-TX Ethernet ports as well as four USB 2.0, two COM, one printer, an audio function, and one VGA port expansion. The AEC-6410 also features one onboard Compact Flash slot for system boot demand.

"The Compact Embedded Controller AEC-6410 was designed for applications such as machine controller, factory automation and building automation," said Linux Wang, product manager of AAEON's panel appliance and automation division. "It is a BOXER Lite series product, and the 'Lite' means not only the mini-size, but also a cost-effective platform."

"Although the AEC-6410 is an economic model in the BOXER series, it continues the design concept of a robust architecture with excellent heat spreading abilities. In addition, the AEC-6410 also adopts a rich I/O interface and expansions that meet the balance of high performance and cost-effectiveness," Wang added.

The AEC-6410 was designed with a focus on developing countries of the world. It can be installed in new infrastructures or bundled in Intelligent Building Automation Controls.
