ITOX Targets Video Surveillance Applications With New 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM Processor microATX Platform

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – July 25, 2011 – ITOX, a leading provider of embedded x86 products and the United States affiliate of DFI® Inc., today announces the SB331-IPM, a new addition to its Intel® Q67 product lineup. This microATX form factor board supports the 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM i7-2600, i5-2400, and i3-2120 processors that feature 32-nanometer process technology providing higher performance at lower power than previous processors.

The Intel® HD Graphics 2000 engine integrated into these scalable desktop 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM processors supports six graphics execution units with dynamic turbo boost to accelerate video processing, and Intel® Clear Video Technology providing advanced imaging capability for Blu Ray and other high definition video processing. Performance is further increased through the introduction of Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) to the instruction set, providing acceleration of complex audio, video, and other image processing. DVI and HDMI graphics interface connectors provide dual independent display support up to 1,920 x 1,200 resolution.

In addition, this new platform supports Intel® Hyper-Threading and improved Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, which enables each processor core to handle two instruction threads and dynamically increase the clock speed when all cores are not fully utilized. This provides increased performance over the previous generation platform for both multi-core and non-multi-core optimized application programs. The combination of Intel® Hyper-Threading, Intel® Turbo Boost improvements, and the new three-level cache subsystem insures higher performance at reduced power consumption across a broad-spectrum of embedded processing applications.

This scalable desktop platform incorporates features making it ideal for networking and surveillance applications, including three Gigabit LAN ports, two PCIe x16 expansion slots (1 x16 signal 1 x4 signal) for video capture cards, 2 PCIe x1 auxiliary expansion slots, and 36 digital IO ports for device control.

This compact microATX board also supports up to 16GB DDR3 1066/1333MHz memory, Intel® HD audio with S/PDIF input/output interface, and the Intel® Q67 express chipset delivering high performance I/O. It provides four Serial ATA 2.0 ports with speed up to 3Gb/s, two SATA 3.0 ports with speed up to 6Gb/s, 14 USB 2.0 ports, and 2 Serial COM ports. The SB331-IPM embedded board is ideal for demanding embedded applications such as networking and surveillance, industrial control automation, gaming and network video recording (NVR) applications.
