AAEON UP Xtreme 7100 robotics SBC and mini PC is offered with Core i3-N305 or Processor N97 CPU

AAEON UP Xtreme 7100 SBC and Mini PC powered by an Intel Core i3-N305 or Processor N97 Alder Lake-N CPU and designed as an “all-in-one robotics solution” providing the sensor data processing, graphics, and other resources required for path planning and control algorithms used in AGVs (automated guided vehicles) and AMRs (autonomous mobile robots).

The UP Xtreme 7100 single board computer and UP Xtreme 7100 Edge mini PC are both offered in compact form factors suitable for robots and feature terminal blocks for serial communication (RS-232/422/485 port and CAN bus) and a 30-pin Phoenix connector with 24V digital I/O and GPIOs. Other features useful for industrial use include 9V to 36V DC input, vibration/shock resistance, and lockable I/O ports.

AAEON provides Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with “Linux 5.15 and Linux 5.19”, which seems odd since when I install a fresh Ubuntu 22.04.3 image on an x86 platform I get Linux 6.2… Those kernels are for earlier releases of Ubuntu 22.04.

Both platforms ship with a DC in Phoenix connector, terminal blocks for RS232/422/485, DIO/GPIO, and CAN bus, and the SBC also includes a heatsink for cooling and four studs, while the mini PC’s metal enclosure handles the cooling part and a shock absorber kit is provided as an option for the UP Xtreme 7100 Edge.

  1. I asked some questions about the Linux kernel and power consumption:

    1. Yes, for the UP Xtreme 7100 we will still be using kernel 5.15 or 5.19, as 6.2 is still relatively new and product development was fully underway when it was released. However, for products kicking off in 2024, we will be introducing 6.2 support.
    2. For the power consumption, this is something I queried myself, and in fact should be 43W~47W, relatively similar to our other boards with similar specs on the Alder Lake N platform. I have requested an update to the material is initiated.
