PICO-6260 offers low power and fan-less design

Portwell has released the PICO-6260 Pico-ITX embedded system board based on the Intel Atom Celeron processor N3350, formerly codenamed Apollo Lake.

The N3350 integrates Intel’s Gen 9 3D graphics engine with up to 12 EUs (Execution Units) that improves performance and supports 4K Codec Decode & Encode. It also supports one dual-channel 24bit LVDS connection and one HDMI on rear I/O with resolution up to 3840x2160. The 204-pin non-ECC SO-DIMM provides maximum memory, making it capable of supporting up to 8GB of DDR3L.

In addition, Portwell’s PICO-6260 features a total of two COM ports, three USB ports (1x USB 3.0 on rear I/O, 2x USB 2.0 on board header) and one gigabit Ethernet.

The PICO-6260 is a palm-sized fan-less Pico-ITX embedded system board and operates with thermal design power (TDP) from 6W to 12W for fan-less applications, has an operation temperature range from 0°C to 60°C and supports 12V power DC input applications.

The PICO-6260 features one DDR3L 1333/1600/1866 MHz SO-DIMM socket equipped with up to 8GB DDR3L memory. It’s Intel graphics engine supports DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 2.0 plus high-performance, flexible hardware decoding to decode multiple high-resolution 4K videos in parallel. In addition, it supports up to 3840x2160 pixels with HDMI port, and dual-channel LVDS up to 1920x1200 pixels, and is designed with the flexibility for connecting up to three independent display interfaces.

One USB 3.0 port ensures fast data transmission with low-power consumption. One 5 Gb/s PCI Express 2.0 lane is used as a full-size mini-PCIe (supporting mSATA) and one M.2 (Key E) socket supporting type 2230 for Wi-Fi / Bluetooth module. Single Intel® I210IT Gigabit Ethernet controller provides Gigabit Ethernet LAN access via a RJ45 port.

The PICO-6260 Pico-ITX embedded board is able to generate and deliver greater and faster performance than the previous generation, and its enhancements in flash playback, rich 2D/3D graphics quality, security and power efficiency makes it suitable for a variety of applications in, such as retail, networking, Panel PC, and kiosk.
