San Francisco, CA, January 05, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- NORCO's newly released Mini-ITX motherboard MITX-6930 boasts the following remarkable advantages, offering an excellent platform for the development and evaluation of a variety of embedded applications.
Ultra-Low Power Design
NORCO MITX-6930 is powered by the latest Intel Atom processors which are built on 32nm process technology with 2×512KB L2 Cache and DDR3 system memory with up to 4GB support. The Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3650 and the memory controller are integrated on the same chip, enabling more space-efficient solutions. The Thermal Design Power (TDP) of the dual-core Intel Atom processor D2700 is 10 W, while the TDP of the dual-core Intel Atom processor N2800 is only 6.5W, enabling further power reductions, smaller systems and performance improvements, and providing customers a high performance embedded design platform that requires low power operation.
Rich Connectivity with Compact Structure
The standard 170mm x170mm form factor motherboard with low power consumption can support rich I/O and comes with a high connectivity and expansion options. Two SATAII ports, one Mini-PCIe SSD (optional), six USB2.0 ports, six COM ports, three audio jacks, 1*LVDS connector supporting single channel 18-bit LVDS interface, one 32bit PCI slot, and two Mini PCI Express expansion slots with one supporting 3G/WiFi/SSD (optional), enabling easy integration. Two Gigabit Ethernet ports are also available for high speed networking and one SIM card slot for 3G module. All this connectivity is packed into a space-saving, power-efficient, and cost-effective Mini-ITX motherboard, providing more flexible peripheral expansion options.
Better Graphics, Dual Display Support
The Intel Atom processorD2700 and N2800 utilize the integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3650 with a rendering clock of up to 640MHz. The new graphics core offers DX9 support and HD decoding (MPEG2, VC1, AVC, and H.264) with Blu-Ray 2.0 support, and also offers more advanced acceleration support. NORCO’s MITX-6930 can support DVI/VGA dual independent video display with onboard 1x VGA, 1xLVDS and 1x DVI video output. The video output is complemented by three audio jacks for a complete audio/visual solution.
Better Performance at Low Power
This newly designed Mini-ITX motherboard supports the Intel Atom processor N2800 and D2700, providing better performance at low power. Compared with the previous generation Intel Atom processor 400 and 500 series, the new platform offers greater performance with reduced power consumption enabled by Intel’s 32nm process technology.
Basic Performance Comparison:
● Processing Power: The Intel Atom processor N2800 delivers about 50% improvement in processing power compared to the Intel Atom processor 400 and 500 series.
●Graphic Performance: The Intel Atom processor D2700 utilizes the integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3650 graphics core, offering DX9 support and HD decoding (MPEG2, VC1, AVC, and H.264) with Blu-Ray 2.0 support, dual display and 2D/3D supported, delivering close to 4x graphic performance compared to the previous generation Intel Atom processor 400 and 500 series.
NORCO’s mainstream form factor motherboard designed with the latest Atom processors produces an ideal combination of cost, connectivity, size and thermal performance, and makes the MITX-6930 motherboard the ideal foundation for rail transportation, information control, AFC, video capture, automotive, industrial control, media player, interactive self-service terminals and kiosk applications, etc.
