Compact and Powerful Fanless Embedded Computer: AEC-6637 with 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7/ i5 Processor


AAEON, a leading industrial computing manufacturer, released today the AEC-6637 fanless embedded computer, the most compact and powerful model of its kind powered by the 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7/ i5 processor. Also featured is the latest Tri-Gate transistors and 22nm technology, with integrated HD4000 graphics that nearly doubles the graphics performance over its predecessor, complimented by the latest Intel® QM77 chipset offering more I/O interfaces and faster connectivity. High performance and the fastest connectivity, the AEC-6637 serve performance demanding applications such as industrial automation, building automation and transportation markets which typically have space constraints.

The AEC-6637 comes with a DDR3 1066/1333/1600MHz SODIMM slot to support a maximum of 8GB of memory. Featuring superior connectivity with two 5 Gb/sec USB3.0 ports, one Full HD display via VGA, two Gigabit Ethernet, three RS-232 ports, one RS-232/422/485 port, one Line-out, the AEC-6877 provides extremely fast connections for enhanced efficiency with rich I/Os. The AEC-6637 offers a 6 Gb/sec SATAIII connector that can support a 2.5” HDD for storage and also offers a CFast slot that can support Cfast card for storage. Optional wireless features can be added via a PCIe 3.0 mini-Card slot that supports 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth™ 3.0. The powerful and passively cooled AEC-6637 embedded computer can operate in -10~60°C (with airflow) environments. Designed with a wide voltage input range of DC 9~30V and offering four types of power protection: Over-Voltage, Low-Voltage, Short Circuit and Surge Protection, the AEC-6637 is well protected to operate in harsh environments that have unsteady power supply or variance in grounding.

“In modern day demanding manufacturing facilities, smart buildings and transportation, compact and fanless computing systems with the highest processing power and the fastest available connectivity are in high demand, said Jackie Huang, Product Manager of AAEON’s Panel Appliance & Automation Division. This is where the AEC-6637 fits right in the picture.”

Intelligent Remote Device Management and Device Monitoring
For effective remote device management, the free AAEON Hi-Manager program can be installed on each deployed AEC-6637, allowing BIOS-level remote management from a remote console. Hi-Manager can also be installed on an AEC-6637 to monitor other AAEON devices. For individual device monitoring, the free Hi-Safe program with its user-friendly monitoring interface can be installed.

Group Management using Hi-Manager
The AAEON Hi-Manager is a powerful tool based on the Intel® Active Management Technology 8.0 (iAMT 8.0) and has backward compatibility with earlier versions of iAMT. This allows users to locate all iAMT devices in the intranet, power On/Off target devices remotely, set power On/Off scheduling, arrange device groupings for better management, offer event logs and timer settings to wake up devices at specified times, recover systems that have crashed from virtual CD-ROM, remote KVM management, and access to target device hardware information for asset management. Hi-Manager can be installed on all AAEON platforms and can remotely manage AAEON client devices that use Intel® Q77, QM77 and HM76 chipsets and run Microsoft® Windows® XP, Window® 7 Operating Systems.

Status Monitoring using Hi-Safe
The AAEON Hi-Safe is a free and powerful hardware-based program geared toward SDKs for UIs running Microsoft® Windows® Operating systems. It provides an easy way to develop the end user’s own UI software to monitor vital System information such as those for the processor, RAM and VGA. It monitors received data from the Super I/O, fan, temperature and voltage, offers configuration options for Digital I/O pin direction and data, provides watchdog timer and fan speed settings, SMBus base address detection and device ID settings, optional monitoring of UPS data information and offers two modes for backlight display control if one uses the LVDS interface. Being based on the user interface SDK, no coding is needed, and customers can create their own customized user interface by downloading the function codes provided by AAEON.
