New compact board designed for embedded artificial intelligence, and edge computing

AAEON, a business leader in embedded AI Edge solutions, announces the PICO-WHU4, the most recent compact board created for embedded artificial intelligence, and edge computing. Built around the PICO-ITX form factor and run by 8th Generation Intel Core Processors, the PICO-WHU4 is really a powerful little solution for a wide range of applications.

The PICO-WHU4 should offer high performance computing in a lightweight. It features the 8th Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 and Celeron processors (formerly Whiskey Lake) coupled with support for up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM. This setup offers an impressive degree of computing performance around the compact PICO-ITX form factor, allowing the PICO-WHU4 to power many AI and edge computing applications. Having a wide operating temperature vary from 0°C to 60°C, the PICO-WHU4 is really a tough and reliable system for just about any condition.

Built to meet the ever-growing demands for embedded AI and Edge Computing, the PICO-WHU4 offers an I/O configuration made to integrate with just about any embedded application. The PICO-WHU4 features two Ethernet ports, two HDMI ports, and 4 USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports. The board also features two COM headers, supporting RS-232/422/485 serial port operation.

The PICO-WHU4 can also be simple to expand, with an M.2 slot providing support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a mSATA/mPCIe slot which could support expansions such as the AI Core X with Intel Movidius Myriad X. Manufacturer Support from AAEON can also custom configure the PICO-WHU4 to match customer projects, helping to reduce development time and time-to-market.

The PICO-WHU4 can also be available as a turn-key solution, the PICO-WHU4-SEMI compact embedded system. Having a compact chassis, the PICO-WHU4-SEMI should provide customers a complete system solution which is simple to setup and deploy.

“The PICO-WHU4 is a powerful solution that's built for the advantage,” said Kevin Chiu, Head of AAEON's Embedded Computing Division. “With compact size and Intel Core processors, the PICO-WHU4 is the best solution for vertical markets including Smart Retail applications and Smart City infrastructure.”
