Barebone 19-in. Panel PC Supports 45nm Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor

BCM Advanced Research has developed a fully certified Intel® processor-based Panel PC (PPC), which is available as a system as well as a barebone version for qualifying OEMs. The PPC19W- 45GM is a 19-in. WXGA widescreen with optional touch. It features high graphics performance, dual display via HDMI/ DVI/VGA output, built-in HD speakers, dual Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi readiness, VESA mountable installation, and easy-access interfaces. This product is FCC-, CE-, and UL-certified as both a system and barebone version. It will be ready for mass production in the second quarter of this year. The PPC19W-45GM is qualified for various multimedia applications that require revision control, extended lifecycle, and a sleek (non-industrial) appearance for such industries as medical/dental and human-interface applications in retail or self service, which include intelligent digital-signage and point-of-sale (POS) applications.

The PPC19W-45GM integrates the BCM MX45GM Mini ITX motherboard into an optimized metal frame housing behind the LCD panel. It boasts optional touch and is wrapped in a black glossy front bezel and rear cover. The system design is based on the Mobile Intel® GM45 Express chipset with Socket P support and the 45nm Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor with up to 1066 MHz FSB for a faster data-transfer rate. The integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD supports Blue-ray, 1080P HD, and outstanding 3D graphics performance for content-rich applications. The dual-display capabilities are supported via external HDMI, DVI, and VGA outputs.
