(Taipei, Taiwan – January 16, 2024) AAEON's UP brand, renowned for producing sophisticated developer boards with industrial-grade specifications, has announced the release of the UP Xtreme 7100, an all-in-one robotics solution available as both a single-board and Mini PC.

Both the UP Xtreme 7100 and its system-level counterpart, the UP Xtreme 7100 Edge, are available in SKUs powered by Intel® Core™ i3-N305 or Intel® Processor N97 CPUs, chosen due to their balance of low power consumption and high performance. The platform consequently provides the sensor data processing, integrated graphics, and resources required for path planning and control algorithms needed to bring AGV, AGV + AI, and AMR solutions to market.

Consistent with previous product lines from AAEON’s UP Division, the UP Xtreme 7100 and UP Xtreme 7100 Edge are built on compact form factors in order to address space restraints. Consequently, the UP Xtreme 7100 board-level solution measures just 120.35mm x 122.5mm, while the edge system version comes in at 152mm x 124mm x 40mm.

Targeting areas in robotics such as AGV and AMR, the UP Xtreme 7100 and UP Xtreme 7100 Edge are equipped with a number of terminal blocks for serial communication, along with a 30-pin board-to-board connector that offers digital I/O, GPIO, and isolated RS-232/422/485 function. Further, CAN 2.0B, a DIP switch, and LED indicators are onboard to make the solution conducive to establishing communication with other devices on the CANBus network.

Peripheral devices such as cameras are supported by a high-speed I/O configuration featuring two RJ-45 ports for Intel® I226-IT (2.5GbE), four USB Type-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 2 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2), and one USB Type-C port, which also supports DP 1.4a. A further display output is present in the form of an eDP 1.3 connector.

Both the board and system are built for industrial use, armed with rugged features that include a wide 9V to 36V power input range; surge, vibration/shock resistance, and lockable I/O ports. The system-level solution, the UP Xtreme 7100 Edge, is also available with an optional shock absorber kit.

Storage capacity is shared between onboard and SSD-based options, with up to 64GB of eMMC, 6Gb/s SATA support, and an M.2 2280 M-Key. As is the case with a number of other UP product lines, the UP Xtreme 7100 is compatible with the Hailo-8™ M.2 2280 AI module, which can provide up to 26 TOPS for applications requiring efficient inferencing capabilities. Additional expansion is available through the UP Xtreme 7100’s M.2 2230 E-Key and M.2 3052 B-Key, which support Wi-Fi and 5G, respectively.

Pricing and ordering information are now available via AAEON’s online contact form, with both the board and Mini PC also due to be available via the UP Shop in the coming days.
