Acrosser Rolls Out Embedded Systems, Gaming Platform at ICE 2008

Using industrial PC as the hardware platform of gaming machine like video slot machine, poker, and video lottery terminal has been a trend to fullfil the longevity and graphic intensive demand of games. The leading designer and manufacturer of industrial computer, Acrosser will present two new All-in-One gamming platforms and series of fanless embedded systems at ICE exhibition for gaming and gambling.

To reduce the system cost, and increase the reliability, an ideal PC-based gaming platform should be integrated into a single board with many specific features required on a gaming machine. Acrosser’s All-in-One products feature digital I/O with interrupt, timer, intrusion logger, SRAM, security, RNG, ccTalk, and read only RTC. All these off-the-shelf products are designed to meet GLI, BMM and many other gaming regulations.

Fanless Embedded SBC and System
Acrosser fanless Embedded SBCs and systems enable integration of the gaming worlds with high quality and reliable industrial PC technology. PC-based embedded computers are based on Intel and AMD’s processor and chipsets: from low cost 486 to high performance dual core processors. The single board computers are designed with various small form factors as EPIC, 3.5″ and PC-104 plus.

The embedded system offers perfect integration the right technology for SBC, heat pipe thermal solution, chassis and power supply. Many fanless and dust proof embedded systems, that will make the system even more reliable for gaming applications like linking machines, will be presented at ICE. What is new for example, are the Intel GME965, GM945, GME915, AMD R690E and VIA C7 basis fanless miniature format embedded systems.
