ITOX Launches Cost-Effective Mini-ITX Board Featuring 12VDC Power

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – January 28, 2008 – ITOX, a leading provider of embedded x86 products and the United States affiliate of DFI-ACP, today introduced the NP101-D16C Mini-ITX motherboard utilizing the 45nm 1.6GHz Intel® Atom™ N270 processor with Intel® 945GSE Express chipset and ICH7M I/O controller hub.  Exhibiting a total system thermal design power (TDP) of less than 15 Watts, this value-optimized platform provides higher performance-per-watt than previous mobile platforms. A single energy-saving 12VDC power input further reduces overall system configuration and operating costs.

In addition, this motherboard utilizes one 240-pin DDR2 DIMM socket supporting up to 2GB of economical DDR2 400 or 533 MHz memory. Other significant NP101-D16C features include an 18-bit LVDS display interface, VGA graphics interface, and an SDVO connector for optional DVI or 24-bit LVDS display interfaces. This mini-ITX motherboard also provides 2 SATA ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 2 Serial COM ports, 2 PCI Express Gigabit LAN controllers, 1 PCI Express x1 slot, and 1 PCI slot.

The ITOX NP101-D16C Mini-ITX product is ideal for cost-sensitive applied computing and x86 embedded systems applications including medical electronics, industrial control, security & surveillance, telecommunications, ATM/POS, digital signage, gaming and kiosk systems. It also has guaranteed availability for seven years to continually save customers the time and expense associated with additional product testing and verification processes.
