AAEON COM-WHUC6 - COM Express Compact Type 6 with 8th Gen Intel Core ULT SoC

AAEON announced the release of its COM-WHUC6 COM Express module. The COM-WHUC6 utilizes the Compact Type 6 form factor, and it is designed to perform in a variety of applications, from automation to mobile operations.

The COM-WHUC6 is powered by the 8th Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 and Celeron ULT series processors (formerly Whiskey Lake), rendering performance for a range of industrial and embedded applications. The COM-WHUC6, in combination with two DDR4 slots and up to 64GB of onboard eMMC storage, is designed to provide optimized processing capabilities.

Key features, integrated with the intent for flexibility and ease of maintenance, include I/O support for USB, VGA, eDP/LVDS, and DDI, which all account for easy integration into existing setups. The COM-WHUC6 also provides expansion capabilities to install two SATA III devices and five PCIe devices.

The COM-WHUC6 is backed by AAEON support and can be configured for a range of options, including WiTAS 2 compliance for operation in temperatures from -40°C to 85°C. With AAEON manufacturer services and OEM/ODM support, AAEON offers COM carrier boards, custom I/O and PCIe support configurations, and more.

    Embedded Systems Fundamentals with ARM Cortex-M based Microcontrollers: A Practical Approach

    Microcontrollers are embedded into larger systems to render advantages such as better performance, added features, improved efficiency, lower costs, and better dependability. 

    This textbook introduces students to creating microcontroller-based embedded systems featuring an ARM Cortex-M CPU core.

    This book introduces students to the concepts of MCU-based embedded systems and how they differ from general-purpose computers, followed by an introduction to the ARM Cortex-M0+ CPU, the Kinetis KL25Z MCU, and the low-cost FRDM-KL25Z MCU development board.

    Another chapter presents the general purpose I/O peripheral to provide an early, hands-on experience with reading switches and lighting LEDs using C code. It also introduces the CMSIS hardware abstraction layer, which simplifies software access to peripherals.
