BCM Advanced Research Debuts MX280NI mini-ITX Embedded Motherboard

BCM Advanced Research MX280NI low profile mini-ITX motherboard

BCM Advanced Research introduced their MX280NI low profile mini-ITX motherboard. The MX280NI embedded motherboard features an onboard Intel Atom N2800 dual-core processor, integrated Intel Graphic Media Accelerator 3650 graphics, and Intel NM10 Chipset. The BCM MX280NI motherboard is ideal for thin client devices, display heads where the MX280NI is mounted behind the LCD panel, retail digital signage, industrial control and medical applications where space constrained enclosures and noise reduction are required.

The MX280NI’s low profile single stack I/O and fanless design with onboard Intel Atom N2800 low power processor are the main selling points of BCM’s value priced embedded motherboard. The low profile heat sink and single stack I/O minimizes the overall height to approximately 0.75 inch. The heat sink also enables fanless operation.
