Pico-ITX Board with Intel® Pentium® N4200/ Celeron® N3350/ Atom™ Processor SoC



    Strength and reliability might be the AAEON PICO-APL3 main selling points, but this compact motherboard has a list of features that make it an instant market leader. Built around Intel® Pentium® N4200/ Celeron® N3350/ Atom™ Processor SoC (formerly Apollo Lake), it’s both cost effective and energy efficient, and the power savings are maximized by the board’s low power DDR3L memory. Customers also get a range of expansion slots including the option of a BIO interface and choice of power connectors.

    Instead of relying on a SO-DIMM socket for memory, the PICO-APL3 offers onboard memory and eMMC storage. This rugged solution eliminates the need for vulnerable plug-in connections and makes the entire system more robust – a feature that’s especially useful with in-vehicle applications that require shock- and vibration-resistant boards. If customers need additional high-capacity storage, the PICO-APL3 supports an M.2 2280 B key and a SATA III Port with a 2.5” HDD Bay for further expansion.

    The PICO-APL3 is currently the only PICO board on the market available with optional built-in TPM. This provides an added level of security over TPM firmware that is standard on other PICO boards, so you can make credit card transactions confident in the security of your data.

    For retailers wanting to offer their customers extra peace of mind, the PICO-APL3 really is the only choice.

    Like all AAEON PICO boards, the PICO-APL3 is housed in the award-winning PICO-SEMI. This forward-thinking chassis comprises a pair of nearly identical parts that easily slot together and are held in place with just six screws. Not only does this speed up delivery times, but it also helps our customers complete maintenance tasks with minimal inconvenience.
