ITOX Launches High-Performance Mini-DTX Mobile System Board

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – August 24, 2009 – ITOX, a leading provider of embedded x86 products and the United States affiliate of DFI-ACP, today introduces a new mini-DTX form factor motherboard offering lower power consumption and higher performance for mobile and embedded systems. This new model utilizes the Mobile Intel® GM45 Express chipset and Intel® ICH9M Southbridge, supporting second-generation Intel Core 2 Duo processors with up to 1,066 MHz FSB and Intel® 45nm transistor technology. Mini-DTX is a new form factor measuring 8.0” x 6.7” (203 mm x 170 mm), which provides additional expansion capability over Mini-ITX motherboards. Mini-DTX also provides a significant space-savings over the larger microATX form-factor measuring 9.6” x 9.6” (244mm x244mm), with virtually the same I/O and expansion capabilities.

“Many of our customers require additional processing speed and features to support new product applications, but are constrained by space and thermal-limitations,” said Todd Shaner, Business Development Manager at ITOX. The new Mobile Intel® GM45 Express chipset and Intel Core 2 Duo processors with 45nm transistor technology enables ITOX to address this market requirement. “Our new CA230-BF Mini-DTX motherboard provides a substantial performance increase over previous mobile platforms, while lowering power and thermal requirements.”

Maximum performance is leveraged with up to 8GB DDR2 667/800MHz dual-channel memory, one PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet controller, 4 Serial ATA ports with speed up to 3Gb/s, VGA display port, DVI display port, and LVDS display interface. The CA230-BF also provides an UltraDMA 100Mbps IDE controller, 6 USB 2.0 ports, 2 Serial COM ports, 1 PCI Express x16 slot, 1 PCI Express x1 slot, and 1 PCI slot.

This motherboard provides outstanding performance and is designed specifically for embedded applications requiring a stable revision-controlled platform. The CA230-BF Mini-DTX motherboard is ideal for applications such as gaming machines, digital signage, industrial control automation, medical equipment, telecom, transportation, network, and security applications. This product has guaranteed availability for five to seven years, extending your product’s life-cycle and reducing costs.
