AXIOMTEK Rolls Out IMB100 Core 2 Duo Micro ATX Industrial Motherboard

AXIOMTEK, a leading supplier of embedded computing platforms for advanced communication, industrial and automation applications, released a high performance industrial-grade Micro ATX motherboard, the IMB100, with a full-range of integrated peripherals for general industrial and embedded applications. Based on Intel® Q965+ICH8 Express chipset and featured LGA775 socket for Intel® Core(TM)2 Duo, Pentium® D, Pentium® 4 and Celeron® D processors, the IMB100 helps users to deploy more responsive, high-performance, low-power systems and can fit in any Micro ATX chassis.

AXIOMTEK IMB100 Core 2 Duo Micro ATX Industrial MotherboardWith selected main chips, well layout arrangement and smaller form factor, this industrial-grade Micro ATX motherboard can apply to any critical and rugged environments like interactive clients, industrial control & automation, gaming, digital security surveillance, and medical imaging applications. By LGA775 socket support users have flexible choices of different level processors upon real applications and budget concern including powerful Intel® CoreTM2 Duo, Pentium® D, Pentium® 4 and low-cost Intel® Celeron® D processors with 1066/800/533 MHz system bus.

Powered by Mobile Intel® Q965 Express chipset and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 8 (Intel® ICH8), the IMB100 supports one PCI Express x16 interface, one PCI Express x4 slot, and one 32-bit PCI slot; the bandwidth over traditional PCI architecture delivering faster access to peripheral I/O devices. Others I/O features include four SATA ports; four COM ports, ten Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports, one Gigabit Ethernet port, digital I/O (4 channel in and 4 channel out), and audio and optional RAID 0, 1, 5.

“AXIOMTEK’s Micro ATX motherboards line own scalable performance, good connectivity and high flexibility of bus expansion” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Platforms Division. “Moreover, the IMB100 supports Windows® XP, Vista which is with DirectX 10 provides a stable, reliable operating environment where users can work and collaborate more easily and effectively”. The two 240-pin DDR DIMM sockets support a total of 4GB system memory capacity. The Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3000 (Intel® GMA 3000) delivers richer visual color and picture clarity for devices such as point-of-sale terminals with two monitors and provides next-generation graphics performance for advanced embedded operating systems.

The IMB100 is RoHS compliant and will be available around the end of April, 2008. For more information or pricing, contact
