October 29, 2017 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
With the PICO-6260, Portwell Inc. offers a low-power fanless pico-ITX board computer for automatic control applications, kiosks and digital signage systems. The product is based on Intel’s Atom Celeron processor N3350, formerly codenamed Apollo Lake.

The processor integrates the Intel Gen 9 3D graphics engine with up to 12 Execution Units (EUs) that improves performance and supports 4K Codec Decode & Encode. It also supports one dual-channel 24bit LVDS connection and one HDMI on rear I/O with resolution up to 3840x2160. The 204-pin non-ECC SO-DIMM provides maximum memory, making it capable of supporting up to 8GB of DDR3L. In addition, the PICO-6260 features two COM ports, three USB ports (1x USB 3.0 on rear I/O, 2x USB 2.0 on board header) and one gigabit Ethernet. The PICO-6260 represents the latest state-of-the-art innovation that results from the years of experience Portwell has gained as a manufacturer of high-quality computer boards.

A palm-sized fanless system board, the PICO-6260 does only does operate with a thermal design power (TDP) from 6W to 12W, but also supports an operation temperature range from 0°C to 60°C and supports 12V power DC input applications.

A significant benefit of the Portwell PICO-6260 Pico-ITX embedded board is that with its superior dual-core processing power and high capability, it generates and delivers greater performance than the previous generation and provides high data transferring bandwidth for improving graphics performance. Moreover, the enhancement in flash playback, rich 2D/3D graphics quality, security and power efficiency enables a fascinating visual experience for a variety of applications such as retail, networking, Panel PC, and kiosk.
