ITOX BL100-N Mini-ITX Motherboard

The ITOX BL100-N Mini-ITX board features the Intel Q35 Express chipset and ICH9 I/O controller hub. The BL100-N Mini-ITX addresses the key requirements of embedded computing designs – Cost, Revision-Stability and Long-Term Availability. The LGA 775 socket accepts lower-cost desktop processors, including Intel Celeron 400 series processors, Intel Core 2 Duo Intel processors, Core[tm]2 Quad processors and 45nm technology processors. It also supports Intel Enhanced Memory 64 Technology (EMT64T) and Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology (EIST), required by high-performance and low-power applications. Evaluation units of the ITOX BL100-N motherboard are available now with production units available end of Q3 2008. List Price: BL100-N $370 (OEM volume pricing available on request.)

ITOX BL100-N Mini-ITX BoardThe chipset on The BL100-N incorporates an updated Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH), providing higher-performance at lower-power. With a 13 watt thermal design power (TDP), the Q35 Express chipset provides a 50 percent power savings over the Intel Q965 Express chipset. Using a standard 240-pin DDR2 DIMM socket, the BL-100-N supports cost-effective 667MHz or 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM modules with a maximum of 2GB capacity.

The onboard graphic features of the BL100-N include the integrated Intel GMA3100 graphics engine with up to 384MB of memory. A VGA graphics port provides up to 2048×1536 at 75 Hz resolution, supporting applications such as medical imaging, security & surveillance, and digital signage. The onboard LVDS DFP interface provides dual-display capability for LCD panels with up to UXGA (1600×1200) resolution (18-bit or 24-bit). Six-channel 5.1 audio support is provided using a Realtek ALC662 High Definition audio CODEC with 24-bit audio output.

Other BL100-N features include 4 SATA (Serial ATA) interfaces, providing transfer speeds up to 3Gb/s. Additional performance increases are realized through the incorporation of Intel Quiet System technology, which regulate system and processor fan speeds for increased noise reduction, and Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (Intel VT-d) and improved I/O virtualization system reliability and security.
