The company offers several “optional” accessories for PICO317 SBC including a heatsink or heat spreader for fanless operation, a 10 cm power cable and a 5V/8A (40W) power adapter, as well as a DB9 serial cable to connect to the COM header(s).
The company did not provide any information about software and OS support apart from a link to a software license agreement, but we can probably assume the board should support both Windows and Linux operating systems.
Axiomtek PICO317 2.5-inch Pico-ITX SBC is available now at an undisclosed price. Further details may be found on the product page.
