Linux-on-Skylake special: two SBCs and a COM Express
Avalue unveiled 5.25- and 3.5-inch SBCs, plus a COM Express Type 6 Basic module, based on Intel’s 6th Generation “Skylake” Core processors.
Avalue’s 5.25-inch EBM-SKLU SBC, 3.5-inch ECM-SKLH SBC, and ESM-SKLH COM Express Type 6 Basic module continue the gradual shift among embedded vendors to Intel’s latest 14nm Skylake platform. So far we’ve mostly seen COM Express modules, which is typical for new Intel chip releases, but there have also been a smattering of Mini-ITX SBCs, and even an Advantech 3.5-inch SBC called the MIO-5272. The EBM-SKLU, however, is the first 6th Generation Core SBC we’ve seen with the legacy 5.25-inch format.
