AAEON announced its introduction of UP Squared 6000, an industrial computing maker board at small form factor (101.6mm x 101.6mm) powered by Intel® Atom® x6000E/RE, Pentium® or Celeron® N/J series SoC (formerly Elkhart Lake) to its expanding UP Family. With the next-generation IoT-enhanced processors, UP Squared 6000 delivers upgraded single-thread, multi-thread and graphical performances, and features Intel® Programmable Service Engine (PSE) and onboard TPM to accelerate and optimize AIoT vertical applications.

To drive optimal performances required for today’s vertical markets, such as robotics, smart agriculture, retail, and vision-intensive applications, UP Squared 6000 delivers up to 1.7x single-thread performance, 1.5x multi-thread performance, and 2x graphical processing performance enabled by Intel® UHD Graphics (11th Generation GPU). By adopting the next-generation IoT-enhanced processors, UP Squared 6000 brings improved performance and efficiency in artificial intelligence deployments.

Expansion and scalability are critical in edge AIoT deployments. To meet the design requirements, UP Squared 6000 comes with multiple M.2 sockets for Intel® Myriad X module, NVMe storage, 5G connectivity and Wi-Fi5/6 modules. In addition, UP Squared 6000 features 40-pin GPIO (HAT-compatible) and 100-pin board-to-board connector (available in Intel® Atom® x6000E/RE SKUs only) for I/O expansions through a carrier board. With the carrier board, UP Squared 6000 will drive full potential of Intel® Programmable Service Engine by offering CAN Bus, QEP, additional dual GbE Ethernet ports, and RS-232 for industrial applications.

By integrating the carrier board, UP Squared 6000 can drive the potential of Intel® Programmable Service Engine (PSE) offering Out-of-Band (OOB) Management, allowing IT personnel to remotely manage manufacturing assets even when the operating system is unresponsive or the device is powered off.
