Version 1

    Axiomtek, one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, unveils PICO500, an extreme compact pico-ITX embedded board supporting the latest 14nm 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors (Codename: Skylake-U). The tiny PICO500 is equipped with one DDR4 SO-DIMM with up to 16 GB memory capacity. Integrated with Intel® HD graphic engine, the Pico-ITX motherboard supports HDMI and 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS that delivers a whole new level of Ultra HD 4K visual experiences. Its Pico-ITX form factor allows for an extremely compact performance system; meanwhile, the PICO500 is built to withstand wide temperature conditions, ranging from -20°C to +70°C (-4°F to +158°F) with active thermal solution.


    Designed with expandability in mind, the Axiomtek Intel® Core™-based pico-ITX motherboard PICO500 has a full-size PCI Express Mini Card slot with mSATA support, and provides a flexible board-to-board connector that integrates a HD audio, four USB 3.0 ports, one PCIe x1, one DDI, and two UARTs interfaces. It is a perfect fit for vehicle PCs, small media entertainment systems, industrial automation systems, medical imaging, gaming, small electronic device, and other Internet of Things (IoT) & M2M related designs. “Axiomtek PICO500 based on the new 14nm 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors provides the best balance between performance and expandability. This new Pico-ITX single board computer combines all advantages for customers who need an embedded board with extreme small form factor, flexible configuration, rich I/O, and high performance,” said Michelle Mi, product manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek.


    The Axiomtek PICO500 comes with advanced connectivity including one USB 2.0 ports, one gigabit Ethernet, HD audio, HDMI, 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS, and one SATA-600 interface. Considering various demands and networking requests, the tiny embedded board comes with one full-size PCI Express Mini Card. To ensure reliable operation, the small form factor embedded board supports watchdog timer and hardware monitoring. This outstanding embedded SBC runs well with Windows® 8.1 and 10 operating systems. Hence, the industrial-grade embedded pico-ITX motherboard also supports Intel® AMT 11 technology for better remote management (on Intel® Core™ i7 & i5 only).


    Axiomtek’s high-performance PICO500 is going to be available in Q1, 2016. For more intelligent IoT&M2M solutions, industrial embedded motherboards information and pricing, please visit us at or via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Please contact one of our sales representatives at
