ITOX Announces Intel® AtomTM Processor N450-Based Fanless Mini-ITX Industrial Motherboard – LR100-N16M

East Brunswick, NJ –January 7, 2009 – ITOX today announces a new mini-ITX form factor motherboard, LR100-N16M offering low power consumption, higher-performance, and fanless cooling. This board utilizes the latest two-chip Intel® AtomTM processor N450 and Intel® 82801HM I/O Controller (also referred to as “ICH8M”) system solution. This smaller integrated two-chip platform uses approximately 40% less board space than previous generation three-chip solutions, and provides higher performance per watt than any previous Intel® Atom™ processor-based platform.

The LR100-N16M mini-ITX motherboard is equipped with a 45nm Hi-K technology Intel® AtomTM processor N450 with 5.5W TDP, 667MHz front side bus (FSB) and 1.67GHz core frequency. In addition, this single core processor features a 512kb 8-way L2 cache, 64bit computing support using Intel® 64 architecture, on-die memory and graphics controllers, all in a small Micro-GCBGA8 package. Integrating the memory and graphics controllers on the processor die increases performance, reduces the board footprint, and lowers power consumption over the previous generation three-chip platforms.

Support is provided for up to 2GB of DDR2 667 MHz single-channel system memory and dual PCI Express Gigabit LAN controllers. Additional features include The Intel® GMA 3150 graphics engine – an improved graphics accelerator with VGA and LVDS interfaces providing dual-independent display capability for graphics intensive and multimedia applications. The integrated graphics engine contains a refresh of the 3rd generation graphics core supporting DirectX 9.0c compliant Pixel Shader 2.0. The LR100-N16M also provides ACPI 3.0 Power management with Intel® SpeedStep technology, three Serial ATA ports with speed up to 3Gb/s, ten USB 2.0/1.1 ports, four Serial COM ports, one CompactFlash socket and high-definition audio support with S/PDIF input/output interface. This embedded Mini-ITX motherboard provides expansion using 1 PCI Express x1 slot for networking and RAID cards, and 1 PCI slot to support legacy card functions.

This low-power motherboard is ideal for applications requiring a stable revision-controlled platform, such as medical equipment, industrial control automation, POS terminals and Kiosk embedded applications. These applications benefit from the smaller Mini-ITX board form factor and lower power requirements of the Intel® AtomTM processor N450 and Intel® 82801HM I/O Controller Hub.
