AAEON Releases New 3.5" SubCompact Board GENE-HD05 with Superb Graphics for Intelligent Automation Systems

3.5" SubCompact Board with AMD G-Series T56N/T40E/T40R Processor

(Taipei, Taiwan) November 19, 2012 — AAEON, a leading industrial computing manufacturer, today released the new GENE-HD05 3.5” SubCompact with a selection of onboard AMD G-Series™ dual/single core T56N/T40E/T40R processors and the AMD A50M controller hub. This small form factor delivers superb graphics performance and hardware acceleration at relatively low power. With a rich array of I/Os and support of DirectX® 11, OpenGL 4.0 and OpenCL™ 1.1, the GENE-HD05 offers stunning 3D visual effects and dynamic interactivity making the board ideal for high quality video monitoring and control in Intelligent Automation Systems, or powering advanced Interactive Multi-Screen POS and Kiosks for retail and hospitality markets.

The GENE-HD05 supports one DDR3 1066 SODIMM (1333 for the T56N version) up to a maximum of 4GB of memory, and features one VGA, one HDMI, one 18/24/36/48-bit dual-channel LVDS, 2-channel High Definition Audio, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two SATA 3.0Gb/s, one CFast™, eight USB2.0, four COMs, one Parallel port, one programmable 8-bit Digital I/O, onboard 4/5-wire Resistive Touch Screen controller, onboard SIM card slot, and optional onboard Trusted Platform Module. It also has a full size Mini Card slot that can be configured through BIOS settings to support either mSATA for storage/OS or Mini PCI Express expansion modules.

“Aside from the great graphic features with integrated graphics to decode H.264, MPEG2 and VC-1 video, the GENE-HD05 comes with a full range of OS support of legacy WinCE 6.0 and latest Windows® 8 alike and can be monitored with the free powerful Hi-Safe program,” says Eric Wang, Product Manager of AAEON’s Embedded Computer Division. “GENE-HD05 is also unique with its onboard SIM card slot that lowers cost of interface modules for system integrators whenever this feature is required,” Eric adds.

Status Monitoring using Hi-Safe

AAEON Hi-Safe is a free and powerful hardware-based program geared toward SDKs for UIs running Microsoft® Windows® Operating systems. It provides an easy way to develop the end user’s own UI software to monitor vital system information such as those for the processor, RAM and VGA. It monitors received data from the Super I/O, fan, temperature and voltage, offers configuration options for Digital I/O pin direction and data, provides watchdog timer and fan speed settings, SMBus base address detection and device ID settings, optional monitoring of UPS data information and offers two modes for backlight display control if one uses the LVDS interface. Based on the user interface SDK, no coding is needed and customers can create their own customized user interface by downloading the function codes provided by AAEON.
