RX45Q – BCM’s New Intel Q45 Industrial mATX Supports Intel vPro Technology, features Dual DVI Onboard and Rich PCI Expansions

BCM, an industry leader since 1990 in industrial motherboards and systems, also a member of the Intel Embedded and Communication Alliance, is proud to announce to launch our new Intel Q45 based Micro ATX motherboard – RX45Q.

Intel Q45 Express Chipset Supports Core 2 Processors with vPro Technology to Maximize IT Manageability

The RX45Q is designed with the Intel LGA 775 Socket and Intel Q45 Express Chipset architecture to support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, Pentium Duo-core and Celeron processors with the Front Side Bus speed from 800, 1066 up to 1333 MHz.  The Intel Q45 Express Chipset is designed to support Intel Core 2 processors with Intel vPro technology which maximizes the IT manageability – allow IT technicians remotely diagnose and repair the wired or wireless systems with more secure, energy-efficient and time-efficient performances. It helps to cut system downtime, reduce the cost and time from the in-person IT support. The vPro technology is designed and targeted to meet the requirements for most of the industrial applications such as gaming and slot machines, ATM terminal, industrial automation, industrial control, Kiosk and more. The RX45Q also supports Intel Active Management Technology (iAMT) 5.0 which offers similar functions as the vPro technology except the iAMT is not require to be operated in the Core 2 series processors environment.

Dual DVI and Dual LAN Connectors Onboard

Dual display function via two DVI connectors built-in on a Micro ATX motherboard is one of the special features provided by our RX45Q. The RX45Q provide dual display capabilities through onboard DVI + DVI connectors with the built-in Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 (Intel GMA 4500) graphics engine.  The Intel GMA 4500 delivers high definition video and 3D graphics performance and also supports Microsoft DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0 and OpenGL 2.0, enabling top levels of Windows Vista operation systems especially for business solutions. The high-end feature of dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet makes the RX45Q compliments the high-end Core 2 Quad capability of this motherboard.

Supports Rich Add-on Cards Through PCI Express x16, x4 and x1

Another special feature provided by RX45Q is its rich PCI Express expansions. The onboard expansions include one PCI Express x16, one PCI Express x4 and one PCI Express x1.  These combinations allow the system to support even more varieties of the add-on cards to meet complicate requirements for advanced applications. This feature is also rarely seen among the other industrial Micro ATX motherboards.

Applications and Life Cycle

Combining all of the special features mentioned above, BCM’s RX45Q is a perfect solution for the industrial applications targeted as below. Its product life cycle is at least up to the year of 2015.
