The PC Engines apu system board is a big step up in performance and capacity from the popular ALIX series.
Applications: Routers, firewalls, VOIP, dedicated servers, special purpose network plumbing, education tools...
CPU: AMD G series T40N or T40E APU, 1 GHz dual core (Bobcat core) with 64 bit support, 32K data + 32K instruction + 512KB L2 cache per core
DRAM: 2 GB DDR3-1066 DRAM
Storage: Boot from SD card (connected through USB), external USB or m-SATA SSD. 1 SATA data + power connector.
Power: About 6 to 12W of 12V DC power depending on CPU load.
Expansion: 2 miniPCI express (one with SIM socket for 3G modem), LPC bus, GPIO header, I2C bus, COM2 (3.3V RXD/TXD).
Connectivity: 3 Gigabit Ethernet (Realtek RTL8111E), 1 DB9 serial port (console).
