PICO-TGU4: Compact single-board computer announced with up to an Intel Core i7-1185G7, 32 GB of RAM and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet
AAEON is well known for its compact motherboards, but the PICO-TGU4 caught our eye because of its powerful hardware. The device measures just 100 x 72 mm, but it can be configured with Intel Tiger Lake processors and 32 GB of LPDDR4x RAM.
AAEON is yet to specify which processors will be available, but it promises that Celeron through to Core i7 options will be orderable. However, the PICO TGU4 product listing states that the board has a CPU clock speed 'up to 4.8 GHz', which would be the Core i7-1185G7.
The single-board computer (SBC) also supports EEC RAM, M.2 2 SSDs and SATA drives, along with 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet on one of its Ethernet connections. Additionally, HDMI and DisplayPort connections handle video output. Moreover, AAEON has included an mSATA/mPCIE port installing a network card and two USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A ports, among other I/O.
Unfortunately, AAEON is yet to confirm the price of its latest SBC, nor when it will be available. The PICO-TGU4 is expected to support Windows 10 and Linux distributions using kernel 5.8, too.
