(Taipei, Taiwan – June 13, 2024) AAEON, a leader in industrial IoT and AI Edge solutions, has released the uCOM-ADN, a SMARC module powered by Intel® Atom® x7425E, Intel® Processor N97, and Intel® Core™ i3-N305 processors.

The uCOM-ADN represents the revival of AAEON’s involvement in the SMARC module sphere, where it is clear that the company’s extensive experience in creating reliable and high-performance Computer-on-Modules has proven invaluable. A standout feature of its newest offering is the uCOM-ADN’s support for the 8 core, 8 thread Intel® Core™ i3-N305 Processor, which merges high performance with efficient operation. The product also supports Intel Atom® x7425E and Intel® Processor N97 from the broader Intel® platform, giving users more flexibility.

Featuring up to 8GB of onboard LPDDR5x memory and 64GB of eMMC storage, the uCOM-ADN can achieve excellent data processing speed while providing ample storage capacity. Integrated Intel® UHD Graphics also lend it to applications requiring quality visual output, emphasized by two DP++ and one eDP interface at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160. This selection makes the uCOM-ADN well-suited to digital signage and smart kiosk solutions.

For visual data acquisition, users have a broad range of interfaces to choose from, including two MIPI CSI, multiple USB, and dual LAN connectors supporting Intel® Ethernet Controllers I226-V or I226-IT, both running at 2.5GbE. For industrial communication, the module offers several UART interfaces, alongside a customizable 7-bit GPIO and SMBus. Expansion can be found in the form of three PCIe Gen 3 slots, while AAEON note that a fourth PCIe Gen 3 interface is available upon request.

Of particular note is the module’s rugged design, which has a default operating temperature range of -20°C ~ 70°C, with an extended temperature SKU also available boasting a -40°C to 85°C temperature tolerance. This will be good news for those seeking a solution able to withstand challenging industrial environments while maintaining optimal performance.

The inclusion of TPM 2.0 also ensures robust security for critical applications, further lending credence to the uCOM-ADN’s industrial suitability. Support for both Windows® 10, Windows® 11 Enterprise, and Linux Ubuntu 22.04.2/Kernel 5.19 grants the uCOM-ADN broad OS compatibility, making it easy to integrate into existing systems.
