BCM Advanced Research announces two fanless, dual core, small form factor industrial motherboards based on the new Intel® Atom™ Processor N2600 at 1.60 GHz Dual-core Low-power mobile platform

Irvine, California, January 23, 2012 – BCM Advanced Research, an Intel® Embedded Alliance Associate member and a leading supplier of industrial motherboards and systems, is pleased to announce the launch of two new fanless dual-core Atom™ based industrial motherboards. The MX260N a full featured small form factor product based on the mini-itx standard. The NX260N is a nano ITX ultra small footprint form factor. Both products are based on the new Intel® Atom™ processor N2000 series platform.

The MX260N and NX260N are equipped with the N2600 1.60 GHz dual-core low-power processor coupled with the Intel® NM10 express chipset with low TDP totaling only 5 Watts allow for fanless operation. Both boards support DDR3 800 MHz memory, provide improved graphics including HD decode and enhanced display options, plus offer longer battery life compared to the previous 45nm Intel® Atom™ platforms.

We are seeing an uptick in demand across most of our traditional embedded/industrial industries for fanless solutions based on the dual-core Intel® Atom™ technology. This is primarily due to the benefits of low power combined with increase in performance dual-core Atom™ offers providing tremendous value in terms of processing power per dollar.” said Tom Skibinski, vice president of sales and marketing for BCM Advanced Research. “Customers are able to make their products smaller, more efficient, more mobile, more reliable, and more cost effective – all the things low power and the newest Intel® Atom™ processors bring to the table. The Intel® Atom™ processor N2600, with its ultra low power and dual-core performance creates new green-field opportunities for power constrained or fanless applications needing the performance boost dual core provides.” added Skibinski.

“The new Intel® Atom™ processors N2600, N2800 and D2700 provide reduced power consumption while supporting multiple new features such as DDR3 memory and multi-display via VGA, HDMI, DVI, LVDS, Display Port and eDisplay Port,” said Jonathan Luse, director of marketing for the Intel® Intelligent Systems Group. “The Intel® Atom™ processor N2600 provides rich media and graphics through an integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 rendering at 400 MHz featuring DX9, OGL 3.0 support, MPEG 2, H.264, VC1/WMV9 video decoding. The new platform enables support for 3D applications which was not achievable by previous generation Intel® Atom™ platforms.”

MX260N mini-itx motherboard supports dual display via VGA up to 2048 x 1536, DVI-D up to 1920 x 1200, and 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS with up to 1920 x 1200 screen resolutions. NX260N nano-itx motherboard supports dual display via VGA up to 2048 x 1536, and 18-bit dual channel LVDS with up to 1920 x 1200 screen resolutions.

The MX260N measures 6.7 x 6.7 inches while the NX260N is smaller measuring at 4.7 x 4.7 inches. Both boards operate on 12V DC power and optimized to run fanless due to their low-power design. The boards provide longer battery life in many ways including deep standby to reduce S3 power, Intel® Display Power Saving Technology (Intel® DPST 6.0), which offers automatic display brightness control and seamless display refresh rate switching.

Combining all the features above, the MX260N mini-itx and NX260N nano-itx are ideal solutions especially for space constrained, battery operated, and cost conscious display applications such as digital signage, mobile medical systems, industrial automation, portable POS, gaming, and Kiosk industries.
