Avalue Technology is bringing new embedded SBCs, ECM-APL & EBM-APL, with Intel® Apollo Lake processor for entry-level applications
TAIPEI, TAIWAN, October 28th , 2016 - Avalue Technology Inc. (TAIEX: 3479-TW), a global embedded solution provider and an associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance is bringing the new embedded single board computers, ECM-APL(3.5”) and EBM-APL(5.25”), equipped with the latest Intel® Apollo lake processor to the market. These new SBCs are designed for dealing with the rising demands on low cost, light weight and system performance and expect to offer users a new solution for entry applications. 
 
A successor to Braswell, upgrade to a new architecture
As a member of the Intel® Atom family, Apollo Lake reserves certain characteristics and advantages from its predecessor, Braswell, ex: a small die SoC designed to slot in below the core architecture chips. This series is aimed at entry-level application market and enabling Intel-based solutions to better compete with non-traditional devices based around ARM SoCs. Different from the past Atom series processors, Apollo Lake adopts the new Goldmount architecture and 14 nm manufacturing process. Furthermore, this processor integrates a newer GPU design based on Intel’s Gen9 GPU (same as Skylake series) to offer modern GPU features and better multimedia performance.
 
Small yet Strong; Tiny yet Beautiful
Though, ECM-APL and EBM-APL adopt Apollo Lake processor as the system core for entry-level applications, still offer fair system performance. Generally speaking, the processor performance is raised 30% higher than Braswell platform. Additionally, ECM-APL and EBM-APL supports DDR3L (up to 8GB) and eMMC 5.0, SDXC, SATA 6.0 Gbps and x4 PCIe. 45% multimedia performance is improved: benefitted by the Gen9 GPU, this product series supports 4K resolution and several graphic interface including LVDS, HDMI and DP. Simultaneously, the Apollo Lake processer integrates HEVC and VP9 hardware deciding function, so power consumption is effectively reduced when running network video stream. The processor TDP is only 6W which is very helpful for energy-saving and to prevent possible problems caused by overheated system.
 
The best balance yet of cost and performance for the entry segment
With the new generation processor architecture, the latest GPU, lower energy consumption, plus, the most common form factors: 3.5” and 5.25” biscuit, Avalue ECM-APL and EBM-APL are beautiful balance between cost and system efficiency. These featured products are capable to meet various requirements from different applications. For example, the features of low power consumption and small size are suitable for portable device, AIO equipment, thin client or compact system applications; exceptional multimedia performance makes ECM-APL and EBM-APL ideal solutions for POS, digital signage and multi-media player in retail. Overall speaking, these new embedded SBCs are expected to be new options for entry-level applications and markets.
