(Taipei, Taiwan) — AAEON, a leading industrial computing manufacturer, today released the latest slim and fanless box computer, the EmBox TKS-E21-HD07, measuring just under 1U in height, and powered by the AMD® G-Series T56N/T40N Dual core APU and the AMD® A55E controller hub. The graphics performance/watt through advanced graphics and hardware acceleration delivers superb graphic performances, with additional boost capability enabled by AMD® Turbo Core technology without additional power draw. The TKS-E21-HD07 supports Full DirectX® 11, OpenGL 4.0 and OpenCL™ 1.1, giving you awesome graphics performance, stunning 3D visual effects and dynamic interactivity, making the unit ideal for high quality video monitoring or display in harsh environments as those of Industrial Automation, Power Management, Utility, Building Automation, Factory Automation and Energy applications.

The TKS-E21-HD07 supports one DDR3 1333 SDRAM SODIMM up to 4GB of memory, one Mini card slot, one mSATA slot, one 2.5” SATA HDD bay, one VGA, two Gigabit Ethernet, six USB2.0, three COM (RS-232 x 2 and RS-232/4222/485 x 1), one Mic in/Line out, and is designed for optional wireless expansions with two external antennas. Low power consumption under 20W for green computing, excellent anti-shock and anti-vibration design, weighing under 1.8Kg with HDD, with VESA 75/100 mounting kit (optional), the TKS-E21-HD07 can be easily mounted or placed in harsh environments that need to bear the wear and tear of 24/7 operation.

“Aside from the great graphic features, the 4-piece chassis and 6 screw design of the TKS-E21-HD07 give system integrators the ease to re-configure and assemble the unit for differing requirements. A front and rear bezel can also be modified for different I/O arrangements e.g. DVI, DIO and more COM ports.” said Joe Lin, Product Manager of AAEON’s Embedded Computer Division. “Top and bottom aluminum heatsink chassis design provides excellent cooling of the unit,” he added.
