AAEON PICO-KBU4 - Pico-ITX Board with 7th Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Celeron U-Series Processor SoC

AAEON, a developer of embedded controllers, announced the launch of their PICO-KBU4, an expandable Single-Board Computer (SBC) with the capacity to open up the drone market for x86 embedded controllers.

Fitted with a  7th Generation Intel Core processor (Kaby Lake) and featuring up to 16GB DDR4 SODIMM memory, the PICO-KBU4 has the computing power to handle applications previously only possible with larger motherboards. Its pair of GbE LAN ports enable the use of two HD cameras, and with its GPIO, two COM ports, two USB3.0 ports, and two USB2.0 pin headers, it can connect to and control a range of sensors.

A 0 to 60 degree Celsius operating temperature range, HDMI and LVDS ports, SATA slot, and M.2 B and E keys for extra storage and WiFi / Bluetooth connectivity are features of this SBC, and customers can expand the IO interface by adding a custom-made daughter board via an optional board-to-board interface.

Industry 4.0: The Industrial Internet of Things by Alasdair Gilchrist

Explore the current state of the production, processing, and manufacturing industries and discover what it will take to achieve re-industrialization of the former industrial powerhouses that can counterbalance the benefits of cheap labor providers dominating the industrial sector. 

This book explores the potential for the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and Smart Factory technologies to replace the still largely mechanical, people-based systems of offshore locations.

Industry 4.0: The Industrial Internet of Things covers Industry 4.0, a term that encapsulates trends and technologies that could rewrite the rules of manufacturing and production.

What You'll Learn:

  • Discover the Industrial Internet and Industrial Internet of Things
  • See the technologies that must advance to enable Industry 4.0 and learn what is happening today to make that happen
  • Observe examples of the implementation of Industry 4.0
  • Apply some of these case studies
  • Discover the potential to take back the lead in manufacturing, and the potential fallout that could result
