The de next-TGU8 introduces extreme performance and full-function industrial design to an unprecedentedly small board.


(Taipei, Taiwan – September 12, 2022) In a major breakthrough in single board computing, AAEON introduces the de next-TGU8, the smallest board featuring an on-board Intel® Core™ i-level processor ever created, measuring just 3.31” x 2.17” (84mm x 55mm).

Offering up to 4 cores, with 8 threads, the 11th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3/Celeron® Processor (formerly Tiger Lake-UP3) provides the de next-TGU8 with the kind of high-performance power never-before-seen in a board so small.

This power ensures users can utilize the potential of the de next-TGU8’s 16GB onboard LPDDR4x memory and expandability, for which it has an M.2 2280 M-Key (PCIe x2) to enable AI acceleration, Wi-Fi, and 4G modules. The de next-TGU8 also provides an FPC slot for PCIe x4 Gen 3 with Riser kit, for additional storage or more advanced graphics options to go along with its Intel® UHD Graphics.

Despite being such a small board, the de next-TGU8 is equipped with a sophisticated interface featuring dual RJ45 ethernet ports, two USB 3.2 Gen2, and four USB 2.0 slots, along with a dual display interface via HDMI and eDP ports.

Because of these features, AAEON believes the de next-TGU8 to be the product to usher in the next generation of edge AI applications in drone and robotics technology.
