Powered by the Mobile Intel® GM45 Express chipset with integrated Mobile Intel® GMA 4500MHD, the EP850 offers excellent 3D graphics and dual-view capability, and supports numerous display output options including CRT, LVDS, and DisplayPort (optional). The EP850 is specially suited for the solutions which need more effective computing, management & security, and excellent graphics performance, such as digital video recorder (DVR), digital security surveillance, gaming machine, entertainment, visual inspection instruments and video server.

AXIOMTEK EP850 extreme performance EPIC single board computerThe EP850 supports dual-view display and has maximum video memory of up to 256MB by sharing the system memory. A built-in latest DisplayPort (optional) based on micro-packet protocol allows to delivering higher data rates for multiple-monitor environments using a single signal cable. One dual-channel DDR3 SO-DIMM SDRAM socket supports up to 4GB system memory. Moreover, this embedded board features Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 which is particularly designed to enhance platform security above-and-beyond the capabilities of today’s software.

“Powered by the latest Intel® Mobile GM45 Express chipset and with super compact standard form factor (165 x 115 mm), the EP850 provides outstanding flexibility for developers of embedded applications,” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Business Unit. “When combined with new 45nm Intel® Core[tm]2 Duo processor, this impressive embedded platform helps users deploy exceptionally responsive, high-performance embedded solutions. Considering up-to-date display output, a built-in DisplayPort based on micro-packet protocol allows easy expansion of the standard and delivers on the promise of digital displays.”

To satisfy increasing demands for data transfer speed, the EP850 provides six USB 2.0 ports and two serial ATA ports with transfer rates up to 300 MB/s. One PCI-104 slot is available for system expansion. Other onboard I/O features include eight Digital I/O, two powered COM ports (2 x RS-232), Dual Gigabit LAN, High Definition Audio, and CompactFlash[tm] for SSD storage devices. Beside, Windows® Vista, Windows® XP embedded, and Linux are all supported. A watchdog timer is included to keep system running smoothly.

The product is RoHS compliant and will be available around early November, 2008. For more product information, please contact our sales representative at
