AAEON launches EPIC-ADN9 with Intel Atom x7000E for 4″ EPIC boards


AAEON introduced the EPIC-ADN9, featuring the newest iteration of Intel technology on its 4.53″ x 6.50″ (115mm x 165mm) EPIC series of single-board computers.

Offering a range of embedded CPUs, including the Intel Core™ i3-N305, Intel Atom x7425E, Intel Processor N50, and Intel Processor N97, the EPIC-ADN9 strikes a balance between efficiency and performance. This selection of processors also provides support for Intel UHD Graphics, enhancing the improved display interface configuration integrated by AAEON into the board. This configuration includes HDMI 1.4, DP 1.2, VGA, and 24/48-bit Dual-Channel LVDS.

Complementing the EPIC-ADN9’s display capabilities are up to four RJ-45 ports for Intel I226-V Ethernet running at 2.5GbE, depending on the model. AAEON designed the board to be passively cooled, while also incorporating multiple options for image acquisition and high-resolution display. This design approach aligns with AAEON’s focus on applications such as entry-level gateway devices and digital signage.

Similar to previous generations of the EPIC board, the EPIC-ADN9 contains a wide 9V ~ 24V power input range, rendering it suitable for industrial deployment. Notably, the board hosts two physical serial ports for RS-232/422/485, in addition to four internal pin headers that support RS-232. 

Coupled with its 16-bit GPIO and flexible storage options such as SATA III, full-size mPCIe, mSATA, and M.2 2242 B-Key slots, the EPIC-ADN9 demonstrates considerable potential in the realms of smart manufacturing and industrial automation, while retaining power-efficient operation.
