AXIOMTEK Rolls Out SBC86840 Mini ITX Motherboard

AXIOMTEK, an Associate Member of the Intel® Communications Alliance (ICA), a community of communications and embedded developers and solution providers, is pleased to announce an extreme efficiency mini ITX motherboard – SBC86840. AXIOMTEK is aware of growing demands of high performance, low power yet cost-effective motherboards in the gaming, POS, and amusement/entertainment market. Now we publish the SBC86840 which supports Socket P (478-pin) Intel® Core 2 Duo processor with 533/667/800 MHz system bus. By built-in advanced mobile Intel® GME965+ICH8M Express chipset and dual core technology, this high performance single board computer provides excellent performance to handle multi-task and to run multiple applications simultaneously.

The Mobile Intel® GME965 Express chipset featuring the Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 provides excellent flexibility for developers of embedded applications by offering enhanced graphics and increased I/O bandwidth over previous Intel® chipsets, as well as remote asset management capabilities and improved storage speed and reliability. Dual independent display support, at graphics core speeds up to 500 MHz, provides a wealth of options for using high-resolution displays. Supported by the Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers and videos BIOS, the SBC86840 is developed specifically for embedded products and applications.

Additionally, the SBC86840 supports high bandwidth dual-channel DDR2 533/667 DIMM up to 4GB memory and equips signal/dual channel 24-bit LVDS and PCIe x16 expansion interfaces. This industrial-grade motherboard possesses many traits and delivers a fine tool for system integrator developing a wide range of embedded applications such as gaming, entertainment, POS, DVR, ITS, interactive clients, industrial control and automation, digital security surveillance, and medical imaging applications.

“With the clear targeted vertical market, the high performance SBC86840 is designed with mini ITX small form factor and has cost-effective option, easy-to-deploy advantages for users,” said Peter Pen, Vice President of Embedded Computing Division. “Except high-end embedded applications, AXIOMTEK’s SBC86840 is suitable for high-resolution display solutions like gaming, POS, transportation, DSA, and medical. Otherwise, Embedded OS porting, system integration, and ODM/OEM service are also available by AXIOMTEK for VAR and system solution providers.”

To meet a lot of application needs, the SBC86840 supports four Serial ATA high-speed data transferring at up to 3 GB/s for improved data access. The onboard Winbond 83627HG-AW Super I/O chipset supports one RS-232/422/485 port and three RS-232 serial ports. Other I/O features include eight high-speed USB 2.0 ports (4 ports through I/O bracket & 4 ports by pin-header), two IEEE1934a, Dual Intel LAN and Watchdog Timer. Besides, the feature of CPU temperature detection (Winbond 83627HG-AW) increases system security and stability.

The RoHS compliant product will be available around the end of December, 2007. You may contact our sales representative at
