BCM Advanced Research NX260N Nano-itx and MX260N Mini-itx Motherboards

BCM Advanced Research introduced the MX260N and NX260N industrial motherboards. Both boards feature the Intel N2600 1.60 GHz dual-core low-power processor, Intel NM10 express chipset, low TDP (totaling only 5 Watts), fanless operation, and DDR3 800 MHz memory. The MX260N is a full featured small form factor motherboard based on the mini-itx standard. The NX260N is a nano ITX ultra small footprint form factor motherboard. The BCM MX260N mini-itx and NX260N nano-itx industrial motherboards are ideal solutions for space constrained, battery operated, and cost conscious display applications (such as digital signage, mobile medical systems, industrial automation, portable POS, gaming, and Kiosk industries).

The MX260N mini-itx motherboard supports dual display via VGA (up to 2048 x 1536), DVI-D (up to 1920 x 1200), and 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS (up to 1920 x 1200). The NX260N nano-itx motherboard supports dual display via VGA (up to 2048 x 1536), and 18-bit dual channel LVDS (up to 1920 x 1200).

The MX260N measures 6.7″ x 6.7″. The NX260N is smaller and measures 4.7″ x 4.7″. Both boards operate on 12V DC power and are optimized to run fanless due to their low-power design. The boards feature long battery life, deep standby to reduce S3 power, and Intel Display Power Saving Technology (Intel DPST 6.0), which offers automatic display brightness control and seamless display refresh rate switching.
