AXIOMTEK Rolls Out SBC86841 Mini ITX Motherboard with Intel Q965

AXIOMTEK, an Associate Member of the Intel® Communications Alliance (ICA), a community of communications and embedded developers and solution providers, releases an extreme high performance Mini ITX form factor motherboard, the SBC86841, which supports LGA775 socket Intel® Core 2 Duo, and Core Solo processors with 533/667/800/1066 system bus. By adopting the advanced Intel® Q965+ICH8 Express chipset and dual core technology, this single board computer provides excellent performance to handle multi-task and to run multiple applications simultaneously. This industrial-grade single board computer creates an impressive platform for system developers to deploy high performance yet low power systems like gaming, POS, DVR, ITS, interactive clients, industrial control and automation, digital security surveillance, and medical imaging applications.

AXIOMTEK quickly lined up a series of gaming solution platforms for slot machines, amusement gaming machines and lottery markets, the SBC86841 is one of targeted gaming boards with Intel® Core(TM)2 Duo computing power. The built-in advanced Intel® Q965 Express chipset offers features that specifically address key requirements of many embedded computing designs, including memory performance, graphics, manageability, responsiveness, noise reduction and data protection. By the south bridge Intel® I/O Controller Hub 8 (Intel® ICH8), the SBC86841 supports up to three PCI Express x1 channels by riser card; four SATA II interfaces; eight hi-speed USB 2.0 ports; dual IEEE 1394a ports; dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, and optional TPM 1.2 (Infineon SLB365 for trusted platform) function.

“With its popular standard Mini ITX form factor, the high performance SBC86841 owns the cost-effective and easy-to-deploy advantages for users” said Peter Pen, Vice President of Embedded Computing Division. “Except high-end embedded applications, AXIOMTEK’s SBC86841 is suitable for new generation gaming machines. Otherwise, Embedded OS porting, system integration, and ODM/OEM service are also available by AXIOMTEK for gaming machine suppliers.”

In the meanwhile, it is equipped with signal/dual channel 24-bit LVDS and DVI-I interface onboard which integrates DVI-D (Digital Video) and CRT (Analog Video) for large size LCD panel displays. VGA function with Intel® GMA 3000 Architecture is built into the Intel® Q965 Express chipset which delivers powerful graphics performance, richer visual color and supports Microsoft DirectX 9; besides, the board has a maximum video memory of up to 256MB, which is shared by the system memory. The DualView features supports CRT plus LVDS, CRT plus DVI and DVI plus LVDS outputs with different contents and different resolutions. Furthermore, it comes with onboard multiple serial interfaces such as, 2 IEEE1394a ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 8 Digital I/O (3 channel-in and 5 channel-out), 4 COM ports, and optional CompactFlash(TM) Type II socket for SSD storage devices.

The product is RoHS compliant and will be available around the end of November, 2007. For more information or pricing, please contact your territory sales representative or
