Review Display Systems (RDS), the embedded systems and display solutions provider, has announced the availability of a new Pico-ITX single board computer (SBC).

The AAEON Pico-TGU4 SBC is powered by Intel’s latest 11th Generation Core G processors (formerly Tiger Lake) offers users the choice of the latest Intel Core i7, i5, i3 and Celeron processors which deliver up to 15 to 20% improved performance than previous generation processors. These processors support a range of technologies including on-board TPM 2.0 and in-band ECC. The board features 32GB of on-board LPDDR4x memory, and SATA III (6.0 Gbps) storage.

A key features of the Pico-TGU4 is its two expansion slots. The M.2 2280 slot (PCIe 4.0) supports next generation AI accelerators, and the full-sized Mini Card slot supports extra storage, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The Pico-TGU4 also features dual LAN ports, one Intel i225 2.5 Gbps port for ultra-fast LAN connectivity, and an Intel i219 port with support for Intel vPro, enabling remote system monitoring.

The Pico-TGU4 also implements AAEON’s proprietary connector, the BIO (Board to Board I/O) connector, which enables customisation when connecting daughter boards, providing the Pico-TGU4 with a number of expansion capabilities.

Peripheral support is also available with a total of eight USB connections, two serial port headers, 8-bit GPIO and I²C/SMBUS connectors. Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) and HDMI 2.0 outputs support external displays of up to 4K resolution.

With external mechanical dimensions of just 7.2cm x 10cm, the Pico-ITX form factor makes it one of the smallest industry-standard SBCs. The lightweight board combined with compact physical dimensions enables the computing platform to be used in small, confined spaces.
