Low-Power Nano-ITX Boards Welcome New Additions

Building on the success of its NANO-8044, which is based on the low-power Intel® Atom™ processor Z5xx series and Intel® System Controller Hub (Intel® SCH) US15W, American Portwell Technology Inc. announced two additions to this popular platform: NANO-8045 and NANO-8050. At a mere 120 x 120 mm (4.72 x 4.72 in.), the compact NANO-8045 and NANO-8050 measure only 50% of the standard Mini-ITX form factor. They are well suited for a range of low-power systems and handheld mobile devices in applications like medical healthcare, in-vehicle infotainment, mobile kiosk, mobile gaming, digital entertainment, digital signage, and portable POS.

The NANO-8045 continues to utilize the Intel Atom processors Z510/Z530 and Intel SCH US15W. It is designed to operate at a very low power consumption (less than 10 W at full loading) and low heat. As a result, it can function as a fanless and battery-operated configuration that supports multiple storage devices. The ultra-low-voltage NANO-8050 is a second-generation Nano-ITX board that features the Moble Intel® GS45 Express chipset integrated with a built-in Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD graphic engine to provide excellent 3D graphics performance. It also supports ultra-low voltage Intel® Core™2 Duo and Intel® Celeron™ M processors.
