    Overview

    Equipped with an Intel® Pentium® N4200 or Celeron® N3350 processor and DDR3L memory, the fanless GENE-APL6 features a solder-up design, which allows for the easy implementation of a heat spreader to channel heat from the CPU out through the chassis. Additional wide temperature support controls are available on request.
    A wide DC input range of 9V to 36V allows the board to overcome fluctuations in power supply and continue running in the unstable environments of factory automation and in-vehicle systems. The GENE-APL6 has been further ruggedized with anti-vibration measures including onboard eMMC storage of up to 128G.

    AAEON is a customer-focused company, and it responded to requests for dual LVDS support when designing the GENE-APL6. The low power consumption technology with high noise immunity is ideal for rugged applications, and an HDMI port can be installed as a custom option. Four USB ports, four COM ports, and Mini Card and mSATA expansion slots, give the board the flexibility to match its strength.

    By removing points of weakness, such as storage through expansion slots only, and by adding the features end users want to see, we’ve made the GENE-APL6 the strongest, most complete factory automation and in-vehicle motherboard on the market
