AAEON Unveils Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® Processors N3000 (codename Braswell) based Hardware Solutions


(Taipei, Taiwan) June 2, 2015 —AAEON®, a major developer of industrial computing solutions, today unveils the upcoming GENE-BSW5 subcompact board and FWS-2260 network appliance, the company’s first two offerings with the latest Intel® SoC lineup.

Manufactured with the cutting-edge 14 nm process, power consumption of both products has been further reduced to 6W, as compared to 10W of their predecessors which utilizes the previous generation SoCs. Support for greater memory speeds and I/Os are also incorporated in the new chips to introduce some of today’s most wanted technological features to the mainstream market.

The GENE-BSW5 3.5’’subcompact board, successor to GENE-BT05, will be capable of handling 3 independent displays from the board’s HDMI, VGA, and LVDS options with the chip’s new graphical enhancements, improving upon the support for 2 displays of the older iteration. The chip’s support for more I/O also helped the new board to sport 6 COMs, 4 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 ports.

Also benefitting from the improved I/O support is the FWS-2260. Not only can more SATA and USB ports be incorporated, but the chip’s improved memory support also allows faster RAM to be used. The SoCs also come with enhanced security features that make network appliances a much more safe and secure equipment in an IoT environment.

“The new architecture targets two prominent aspects in today’s computing landscape, UHD videos and IoT, with improved video rendering capabilities and network security features” said Jonathan J Luse, Intel Senior Product Line director. “Being one of the early SoCs based on 14nm, we hope the new generation of Intel’s products helps our partners in winning new designs”.
