Giada F110D and Asus E210 Fanless mini PCs Feature Intel Bay Trail Celeron N2807 Processor

December 19th, 2014 9 comments

We’ve seen many small computer based on Intel Atom Bay Trail-T (Tablet) Z3735F/G processor lately including MINIX NEO Z64 and MeegoPad T01, which should ship by the end of the month (it keeps getting postponed). But Intel also makes Bay Trail-M (Mobile) processor for laptops, including Celeron N2807 dual core processor found in ECS Liva. Two new products based on N2807 processor has recently surfaced: Giada F110D and Asus E210. According to CPU Boss (see Google cache if link has problem), Z3735F has slightly greater multi-core performance than N2807, but the latter has better single thread performance based on Passmark. One key advantage of the Celeron processors over the Atom ones is that they support up to 4GB RAM instead of 1 or 2 GB for the Bay Trail-T processor. Giada F110D also has one version with a more powerful Intel Bay Trail-D (Desktop) Celeron J1900 quad core processor.

Giada F110D

Giada_F110D

Specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Celeron N2807 (Bay Trail M) dual core processor @ 1.58 GHz (Burst: 2.16 GHz – 4.5W TDP) or Intel Celeron J1900 (Bay Trail D)  quad core processor @ 2.0 GHz (Burst: 2.14 GHz – TDP 10W), both with Intel HD graphics.
  • System Memory – Not included. Supports up to 4GB RAM
  • Storage – Not included. Support 2.5″ SATA drive, or mSATA SSD, and comes with 4-in-1 (SD/MMC/MS/MS PRO) card reader.
  • Video Output – 1x HDMI, 1x VGA
  • Audio – HDMI, and Audio In and Out jacks
  • Connectivity – 2x Gigabit Ethernet. Optional 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0 module.
  • USB – 1x USB 3.0 port, 4x USB 2.0 ports
  • Misc – 2x COM ports, IR receiver
  • Power – N/A
  • Dimensions – 190 x 149 x 26 mm
It will run Windows 7/8.1, and Linux operating systems, pricing and availability have not been announced.

Asus E210

Asus_E210

Specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Celeron N2807 (Bay Trail M) dual core processor @ 1.58 GHz (Burst: 2.16 GHz) – 4.5W TDP
  • System Memory – 2GB to 4GB RAM via 1x SO-DIMM
  • Storage – Up to 128GB SSD, 4-in-1 card reader
  • Video Output – 1x HDMI, 1x VGA
  • Audio – HDMI, and headphone and microphone jacks
  • Connectivity – 1x Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi with external antenna
  • USB – 1x USB 3.0 port, 3x USB 2.0 ports
  • Misc – 1x COM ports, 1x Kesington Lock
  • Power Consumption – 6.36W (idle)
  • Dimensions – 219 x 172.5 x 29 mm
  • Weight – 690 grams

Asus mini PC is sold with a keyboard, mouse, an AC adapter with a power cord, a warranty card, a quick manual, and a VESA mount kit. It will ship with Windows Embedded 8 Standard, Windows Embedded Standard 7, or DOS (FreeDOS?). The latter is probably to let you install your preferred operating systems by yourself. Price and availability are unknown at this tage.More details can be found on Asus E210 product page.

Based on the specs both Giada and Asus models are probably targetting business users first, but there’s no reason why you would not able to use these for private use. Ubuntu is running on ECS Liva, albeit with some caveats, so it should also run on these two models. but possibly without Wi-Fi support. Having said that, Giada claims Linux support so they must have the right drivers…

e-con Systems Unveils eSOMiMX6 SoM based on μQ7 Form Factor, and Ankaa Development Kit

December 4th, 2014 2 comments

QSeven is one of the many standards for system-on-modules, and it defines both Qseven (Q7) 70x70mm modules, and smaller μQSeven (μQ7) 70x40mm modules. While there are quite a few SoMs following the larger form factor, few modules are based on micro Q7, and e-con Systems eSOMiMX6 has just launched one of these tiny modules with eSOMiMX6 system-on-module powered by Freescale i.MX6 processors, as well the corresponding Ankaa development kit comprised of the SoM and a baseboard.

uQseven_Freescale_i.MX6_SoM

eSOMiMX6 module specifications:

  • SoC – Freescale i.MX6 single, dual or quad Cortex A9 processor @ 800MHz to 1.2 GHz with Vivante GPUs
  •  System Memory – 256MB/512MB (Solo only), 1GB (default), or 2GB (dual/quad only) LVDDR3 RAM
  • Storage – 4GB (default) to 64GB eMMC flash, 2MB SPI NOR flash, and SD/MMC + SATA II  interfaces via MXM connector
  • Display / Video Output:
    • HDMI up to 1920 x 1080
    • Dual channel 24-bit LVDS
    • 24-bit LCD RGB
    • MIPI DSI
  • Camera:
    • 4-lane MIPI-CSI  (2-lane for Solo)
    • 10 bit parallel camera I/F
    • 20-bit parallel camera I/F
  • Connectivity – Optional Gigabit Ethernet controller,  optional module for 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 BLE
  • Other I/O accessible via 314-pin MXM connector:
    • USB 2.0 host, USB 2.0 OTG
    • SPDIF audio in and out
    • 2x CAN (FlexCAN)
    • 5x serial UART
    • 3x I2C,  3x PWM, SPI
    • Up to 50x GPIOs
    • PCIe x1 Gen2
  • Power Supply – 3.3V @ 3A
  • Dimensions – 70 x 45mm
  • Temperature Range – Commercial: 0 to 70°C; or Extended: -40 to 85°C

You may have noticed the module size is 70x45mm, and not 70×40 as in Q7 specifications, which is probably why the companies refers to a custom μQseven” form-factor, where they’ve kept the MXM connector, the same mounting holes position, but increased the width of the board. So it should still work with most Q7 baseboards, unless the 5 millimeters extra interfere with your baseboard.

The company provides BSPs for Linux (with bootloader), and Android, with Windows Embedded Compact (WEC) 2013 still in development.

Ankaa Development Kit (Click to Enlarge)

To speed up development, e-con Systems can also provide Ankaa development kit with including eSOMiMX6 Module (eSOMiMX6-CS-P1G-F4G-R1G-WB-E with i,MX6 Solo @ 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 4GB eMMC, Wi-Fi/BT, and Ethernet), Ankaa carrier board, and HDMI cable, a USB to serial port cable, and a 9V power supply. They have both Linux and Android version of the kit, and the latter also adds a 10″ LCD with capacitive touch.

Ports and features available on Ankaa development kit:

  • 314-pin MXM connector for uQ7 SoM
  • Storage – SATA connectors (DATA + Power, not working with Solo SoM),  SD Card slot
  • Camera – MIPI – 4 lane interface; Parallel interface 1 – 10 bit; Parallel interface 2 – 20 bit (Quad processor only) with 5MP, 8MP and 13MP MIPI Cameras available as add on boards.
