Board offers superior graphics capabilities

Solid State Supplies now stocks the RICO-3288 Pico-ITX fan-less board from Aaeon. Central to the design is the 32bit Rockchip RK3288, featuring four ARM Cortex-A17 cores, which the company claims is more efficient at multi-tasking than dual-core devices.

Running at up to 1.6GHz, the processor is said to have advanced graphics processing and video decode functionality (supporting 60frame/s 2160pixel H.265 decoding). As well as 2Gbyte of DDR and 16GByte eMMC resource, there is provision on the RICO-3288 board for a 64Gbyte Micro SD card .

Among the I/Os featured as standard are HDMI 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet and a Micro USB port featuring USB On-the-Go. There are also three standard USB 2.0 interfaces, plus an RS-232 port and a combined RS-232/422/485 interface.

Board variants are available that deal with wireless communication aspects - 3G/LTE being facilitated through a full size Mini PCIe slot and nano-SIM holder, along with integrated Wi-Fi/BT4.0 for local area networking.

The board is suited to incorporation with machine vision/manufacturing inspection equipment, point-of-sales units, digital signage, industrial HMIs, vending machines, test instrumentation and edge-to-cloud applications etc.

In addition, a dedicated I/O connector for expansion via daughter cards with CANbus and GPS enables applications such as fleet management to be addressed.

Measuring 100 x 72mm, the board operates in temperatures ranging from 0 to 60°C, with an extended version covering -20 to 70°C also available.
