Evalue Launches EPIC/Mini-ITX KIOSK SBCs with Low Cost of Ownership

Based on extensive POS/KIOSK development experience, Evalue has developed a KIOSK SBC series that offers low cost of ownership while maintaining high system reliability. These KIOSK solutions are available in EPIC and mini-ITX form factors with features such as a built-in touch screen interface, single voltage operation, ultra low-power consumption and RoHS compliance. Moreover, customers can select from the most popular platforms including Intel(R)’s Pentium(R) M, the AMD LX series and VIA processors, all of which run Microsoft embedded Windows XPE and CE .NET and the other operation software.

Intel platform
Evalue delivers Intel-based KIOSK SBCs in both EPIC and Mini-ITX form factors. The full range of Intel-based Mini-ITX motherboards are supported with the most powerful chipsets including the 915GM, 855GME and 852GM. And all feature high-speed bandwidth interfaces for increased system performance. The Mini-ITX solutions support an optional 19V DC-DC power module that reduces cost, saves space and enhances boost efficiency. Moreover, all Mini-ITX motherboards support an impressive range of high-speed storage and networking connectivity options such as multiple SATA, USB 2.0, PCI, Mini-PCI or LAN/Gigabit LAN interfaces. The ECM-3720 is another Intel choice and has an EPIC form-factor size of 165 mm x 115 mm. The ECM-3720 features dual View, dual LAN and single +12V operation, in addition to its touch-screen interface.

AMD platform
The EMB-9655 is an ultra-low power Mini ITX motherboard featuring an onboard AMD Geode LX700 processor. The AMD Geode LX700@0.8W processor consumes a maximum power of 3.1W (TDP) and 1.3W typical at 433 MHz. Incorporating the built-in, touch-screen interface and single 19V power module, the EMB-9655 enables a great number of mobile applications in small footprint designs with extended battery life.

VIA platform
The ECM-3624 harbors an onboard VIA Eden ESP10K processor and a CN400 chipset in a small EPIC size. It supports MPEG-4 acceleration and MPEG-2 decoder with versatile functionalities such as dual LVDS, TV-out, 5.1 CH audio and an optional 4/5/8-wire resistive touch screen controller. Also, the ECM-3624 supports multiple I/O interfaces including two serial ATA ports, four USB 2.0 ports, one PCI-104 slot, one CompactFlash slot and dual 10/100Mbps Ethernet controllers for flexible expansion and connectivity.
