The AAEON TKS-G20 offers complementary capability to Trident's VESA-PC platform with a low-power Intel Celeron-M based single-board computer housed in a heavy-duty steel casing. Its on-board 1.3GHz CPU can be clocked at 1.0GHz or 600MHz to provide stable and reliable operation, balancing performance and power consumption. The PC is just 254x146x63mm in size, which simplifies installation and integration.

Trident claims that the graphics capability is outstanding for such a compact PC, offering diverse display options including CRT/LCD, CRT/TV, CRT/DVI, LCD/DVI and LCD/TV LCD, DVI simultaneous/dual view outputs.

The system can be networked via 10/100Base-TX Ethernet and optional 802.11b/g wireless connections and there is a programmable 8-bit digital I/O port for use in industrial applications. Two COM ports and four USB 2.0 connectors complete the interface options. System power is provided from an integral supply, using either AC mains or a 9-30V DC supply.

With up to 1GB of system memory, the system also supports Type II CompactFlash or a 2.5-inch hard disk drive for reliable data storage. Trident can add the customer's choice of Windows or alternative operating systems according to requirements.
