AXIOMTEK Introduces Intel® Q45 PICMG 1.3 Full-size Core™2 Quad SBC

AXIOMTEK’s SHB102 is a mainstream platform and uses the Intel® Q45 Express chipset that delivers advanced security and manageability at remarkably low power consumption.

Taipei, Taiwan, November 25, 2008- AXIOMTEK today introduces SHB102, a new quad-core PICMG 1.3 full-size CPU card. Built on the Intel® Q45 Express chipset and ICH10DO, the SHB102 supports the 45nm Intel® Core™2 Quad processor up to 1333 MHz FSB in LGA775 package with four dual-channel DDR3 DIMM sockets up to 16GB. The integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 provides excellent graphics and 3D performance with a maximum dedicated frame buffer video memory up to 256MB. Beside, the PICMG 1.3 specification brings advantages of PCI Express to this single board computer that offers four PCI, four PCIe x1 or one PCIe x4, and one PCIe x16 routed to the backplane. This full size slot CPU bard is prefect for industrial control and automation, visual inspection instruments, digital surveillance, and network security applications.

The SHB102 with Intel® Q45 Express chipset features an integrated Intel® Trusted Platform Module (Intel® TPM) and the latest Intel® Active Management Technology² (Intel® AMT) 5.0 for higher security, easier maintenance, therefore lowering total cost of ownership. Six high-speed SATA-300 ports with RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality offers quicker access and greater data protection. Networking is provided by Intel® 82567LM and Intel® 82574L Gigabit LAN interfaces. Other I/O features include twelve USB 2.0 ports, two COM ports (1 x RS-232 & 1 x RS-232/422/485), two PS/2 ports, VGA port, HD audio, and parallel port. Additionally, the PICMG 1.3 full size SBC SHB102 supports various embedded operating systems such as Windows® Embedded XP, Windows® Vista, and Linux.

“AXIOMTEK’s SHB102 is designed for pairing with the cutting-edge 45nm Intel® Core™2 Quad processor that brings more power to applications that require energy efficient and low thermal design,” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Business Unit. “The Microsoft® DirectX 10 and Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 provided with the Intel® Q45 Express chipset offers excellent graphics performance. Moreover, the SHB102 with built-in Intel® Active Management Technology 5.0 and Intel Trusted Platform Module 1.2 (TPM 1.2) has answered today’s customers’ needs of enhanced security and remote access for easier maintenance.”

The SHB102 also can come with Intel® Core™2 Duo and Intel® Celeron® processors, offering customers an alternative choice. This general purpose full-size slot CPU card is fully compatible with AXIOMTEK's PICMG 1.3 full-size passive backplanes, and we also have various industrial enclosures and shoebox chassis to house this system host board and any customer's industrial integrations flexibly. The single board computer will be available in the end of December, 2008.
