AXIOMTEK Initiative EPIC Embedded Board with Intel® Core™2 Extreme and Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processors + Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset - EP850


Adopting a new generation of Intel® Core™ 2 microarchitecture and Mobile Intel® GM45 Express chipset, EP850 provides more powerful computing capabilities and greater graphics performance for the most demanding needs of today.

AXIOMTEK, an Associate Member of the Intel® Embedded and Communications Alliance (ECA), a community of communications and embedded developers and solution providers, is pleased to launch a high performance EPIC embedded platform, EP850, which now supports Intel® processors on 45nm process technology in addition to 65nm processors. The EP850 EPIC single board computer supports Socket P for superior Intel® Core™2 Extreme and Intel®, Core™2 Duo and processors with a 667/800/1066 MHz front side bus and features the Mobile Intel GM45 Express chipset and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9M that makes a platform of extreme lowpower embedded solution and enhanced graphics interfaces for media market. With quad-core Intel® processor technology, the EP850 provides the excellent performance to handle multitasking and to run multiple applications simultaneously. This EPIC platform is specially suited for the solutions which need more effective computing, management & security, and excellent graphics performance, such as digital video recorder (DVR), digital security surveillance, gaming machine, entertainment, visual inspection instruments and video server.

High Performance Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor - based EPIC Platform -- EP850 (AXIOMTEK)

Powered by latest Mobile Intel GM45 Express chipset and with super compact standard form factor (165 x 115 mm), the EP850 can deliver precise solution, greatest graphics performance, network remote control and management and Intel® Matrix Storage Technology. When combined with Intel Core™2 Extreme and Core™2 Duo processors, this impressive embedded platform helps users deploy exceptionally responsive, highperformance embedded and industrial solutions. A built-in display port based on micro-packet protocol allows easy expansion of the standard and delivers on the promise of digital displays.

Onboard one dual-channel DDR3 SO-DIMM socket has a maximum memory capacity of 4GB. The integrated graphics engine built into the chipset delivers powerful graphics performance and richer visual color, and EP850 has a maximum video memory of up to 256MB, which is shared by the system memory (CRT resolution 2048 x 1536, LVDS resolution 1920 x 1200); its 3-D enhancements enable greater flexibility and scalability. This EPIC SBC supports 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems like Microsoft® Windows® XP, Vista® and embedded OS like Linux. Besides, CompactFlash™ socket for SSD (via SATA-to-parallel ATA IDE controller to support CompactFlash™) is also available for Windows® Vista® ReadyBoost function.

This board features Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 which is particularly designed to enhance platform security above-and-beyond the capabilities of today’s software. Defined by the Trusted Computing Group’s public specification, the TPM provides hardware-based protection for the encryption and digital signature keys that secure user’s data’s confidentiality. To meet a wide range of application needs, the board has integrated two SATA ports with transfer rate up to 3 GB/s and provides one PCI-104 slot typically required in applications needed a large number of peripheral cards are installed as well as +12V only power support.

Available with two Gigabit Ethernet ports thru PCIe interface, the EP850 provides perfect network connectivity for network environments. Moreover, it comes with rich I/O features include two mainstream SATA-II connectors, six high-speed USB 2.0 ports, two PS/2 (keyboard and mouse) ports, and two COM ports (RS-232), and CompactFlash™ type II socket. Other features include digital I/O, hardware monitoring and Watchdog Timer (1~255 seconds) which monitoring system for user.

The EP850 is RoHS compliance and will be available in Q3, 2008. For more product information and embedded boards, please visit global website www. axiomtek.com or contact our sales representative at info@axiomtek.com.
