AAEON’s BOXER-6617-ADN: Robust Hardware, Low-Power Processing


AAEON announced the official launch of the BOXER-6617-ADN, a robust, efficient industrial embedded PC featuring the Intel Core i3-N305, Intel Atom x7211E, and Intel Processor N-series processors (formerly Alder Lake-N).

Available in models with up to the Intel Core i3-N305 processor SKU, the BOXER-6617-ADN takes advantage of up to 8 cores and 8 threads of computing power with the extremely efficient 15W processor. 

Equipped with up to 32GB of SODIMM-based high-bandwidth DDR5 memory, the PC’s I/O caters to applications requiring high-speed communication with external devices, such as AMR, smart city, and CNC device solutions. To do so, the BOXER-6617-ADN hosts six DB-9 ports offering RS-232/422/485 functionality, along with dual 2.5GbE LAN, dual HDMI, and a 10-pin terminal block for peripheral device connectivity and communication protocols that particularly suit its use as an industrial machine controller.

In addition to its flexible memory and wired connectivity options, the BOXER-6617-ADN’s hardware is tailored for harsh industrial usage, with its fanless body capable of operating in temperature ranging from -20°C to 70°C. The system also has a wide 9V ~ 36V DC input range with circuit protection, and is engineered to withstand high levels of vibration and shock.

Utilizing SSD-based storage through a 2.5″ SATA HDD and an M.2 2280 M-Key slot, the BOXER-6617-ADN grants more flexibility for expansion for storage-heavy applications. Moreover, M.2 E and B-Key slots support 5G, Wi-Fi, and LTE connectivity for edge-to-cloud data exchange and wireless communication with industrial machinery.
