With a 15% boost in CPU performance, 50% faster data transfer speeds, and four independent displays with Intel Iris® Xe Graphics, the GENE-ADP6 is the perfect board for machine vision solutions.


(Taipei, Taiwan– September 6, 2022) AAEON’s new GENE-ADP6 unlocks the door to elite edge computing, digital signage, and machine vision applications with enhanced features across the board. The GENE-ADP6 provides a 15% improvement in CPU performance through the Intel® 12th Generation Core™/Celeron® CPU (formerly Alder Lake-P), featuring hybrid platform processor architectures with up to 12 cores and 16 threads.

Along with an improvement in CPU power, the GENE-ADP6 shows greater AI-readiness, with Intel’s Deep Learning Boost AI accelerator providing enhanced inferencing capabilities to make the GENE-ADP6 perfect for 5G and AI edge computing.

For faster, more advanced storage speeds, the GENE-ADP6 introduces 64GB system memory via two dual-channel DDR5 SODIMMs, being AAEON’s first 3.5" SubCompact Board to do so. This improvement from DDR4 to DDR5 offers up to 50% faster data transfer speeds and a new, more efficient power management structure.

The GENE-ADP6 supports M.2 3052/3042 and M.2 2230 modules, enabling 5G and Wi-Fi for enhanced application connectivity. Additionally, the board’s FPC expansion slot provides sophisticated, high-performance PCIe x4 (Gen 4) speed. This also gives users the flexibility to expand the board’s additional PCIe x4 slot for machine vision, smart retail and industrial automation applications.

This is all supported by AAEON’s dense, yet intricate I/O featuring three USB 3.2 slots, four USB 2.0 slots, and a display interface for four independent displays with Intel Iris® Xe Graphics. It is this combination of features which AAEON believe will see the GENE-ADP6 become the foundation for more refined digital signage and machine vision solutions.
