In August 2013, ITEAD Studio released ITAD Core A10/A20. Since then, we’d received a lot of useful feedbacks. We are grateful to all of you for giving us so many suggestions on improving this product.
From the end of March this year, we have been focusing on developing and testing the second generation of ITEAD Core by referring to the suggestions from our customers. After about four months of development, we’ve completed PCB layout of ITEAD Core AW2041/AW2042, tested its prototype, made a small batch of production and done the long-term stability test. It is expected that volume production of ITEAD Core AW2041/AW2042 will be commenced next week.
Compared to the first generation, the second ITEAD Core has been improved with following aspects in the design.
- on-board micro SD slot for multimedia storage and data logging purposes, supporting the maximum capacity of 64G SD card.
- on-board SATA interface for the convenience of connecting external hard drive or CD-ROM.
- the second ITEAD Core uses SO-DIMM 204 pins interface for easily plugping in and out.
- The known bugs of the first ITEAD core have been fixed in the second generation.
