apu2 platform
Summary apu2 is an evolution of the apu board with a cooler running quad core CPU, more robust Intel NICs, and lower total solution cost.
Applications Routers, firewalls, VOIP, dedicated servers, special purpose network plumbing, education tools...
CPU AMD Embedded G series GX-412TC, 1 GHz quad Jaguar core with 64 bit and AES-NI support, 32K data + 32K instruction cache per core, shared 2MB L2 cache.
DRAM 2 or 4 GB DDR3-1333 DRAM, with optional ECC support
Storage Boot from SD card (internal sdhci controller), external USB, m-SATA SSD or conventional SATA SSD / HDD.
Power About 6 to 10W of 12V DC power depending on CPU load. Connect to 2.5 mm DC jack or optional internal header.
Expansion 2 miniPCI express (one with SIM socket for 3G modem).
Connectivity 3 Gigabit Ethernet channels using Intel i210AT / i211AT NICs depending on the model.
I/O DB9 serial port for serial console, LPC bus, GPIO header, I2C bus, COM2 (3.3V RXD/TXD).
Firmware coreboot open source system BIOS with support for iPXE and USB boot.
Form factor 6"x6" (152.4 x 152.4 mm), fits in our case1d2*u enclosures.
Cooling Conductive cooling from the CPU to the enclosure through a 3 mm alu heat spreader. Please contact us for advice if you want to integrate this board in your own enclosure.
