BCM announces the release of its MX45GM2 industrial Mini ITX motherboard with ATX power due to popular demand

BCM Advanced Research, a member of the Intel® Embedded Alliance, officially announces the release of our MX45GM2 industrial Mini ITX motherboard as a standard product due to market demand for a high performance, small form factor, long-life industrial motherboard with traditional ATX power support.  

The MX45GM2 is identical to the current DC powered MX45GM Mini ITX motherboard in terms of features, I/O, and layout with the exception of  operating via ATX power supplies.  The MX45GM2 delivers the same outstanding performance as the MX45GM but with a reduction in cost by removing the DC power circuitry.

The MX45GM2 is based on Intel® Montevina platform – Intel® Mobile GM45 Express chipset and socket P supporting the Intel® 45nm Core™ 2 Duo processors with 667/800/1066 MHz Front Side Bus.  This board covers majority of features required for the embedded multimedia applications such as interactive Kiosks, gaming Kiosks, interactive ATM terminals, high-end digital signage systems to name a few.   The MX45GM2 provides the integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD supporting DirectX 10, Intel® Clear Video technology, 2D/3D/Blue-ray capable HD video playback, and versatile dual display via onboard HDMI, LVDS, DVI and VGA graphic outputs. The board also supports dual 10/100/1000 LAN ports delivering Gigabit data transactions.  The rich onboard I/O connectors and expansion slots include four SATA, five serial ports, eight USB 2.0, 16-bit GPIO, one PCI slot, one PCI Express x1, one Mini PCI Express, and one Compact Flash socket.

The MX45GM2 offers built-in Intel® Active Management Technology 4.0 (Intel® AMT 4.0) enabling remote management capability for IT specialist to perform instant maintenance in order to shorten the system down time and save the cost of on-site repair.  The Infineon Trusted Platform Module 1.2 (TPM 1.2) is supported for secure data protection.  The MX45GM2 also supports Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT), a versatile set of hardware extensions to Intel® processors and chipsets that enhance the platform with security capabilities, providing hardware-based mechanisms that help protect against software-based attacks and protects the confidentiality and integrity of data stored or created on the system.  The above features are special benefits for enterprise, banking, gaming, and financial related applications.

Both MX45GM and MX45GM2 are long life industrial motherboard in small form factor with lifecycles of 5 to 7 years plus.  The MX45GM2 supports ATX power while the MX45GM supports the DC power.  For pricing and availability please contact us at BCMSales@bcmcom.com.
