Intel D945GCLF Mini-ITX Motherboard

Posted by computerandlaptops on July 26, 2008


MINI-ITX FORMFACTOR MOTHERBOARDS are an economical alternative to traditional embedded boards. Measuring 170 mm x 170 mm (6.75 inches x 6.75 inches), the Mini-ITX motherboards is the world’s smallest native x86 platform and is fully compatible with Microsoft and Linux Operating Systems.

The mini-ITX motherboards are based on powerful x86 processors and are fully equipped with PCI, VGA / TV / HDMI / DVI, audio, USB, serial and Ethernet. Widely used in the small Mini ITX form factor PC Case, the mini-ITX boards enables the creation of a new generation of small computers (mini-ITX PCs, car PC, appliances) aimed at industries, embedded mini-ITX market, data communications, medical equipment and networking applications. With the features come from Intel’s latest mobile CPU, such as the Intel atom (Silverthorne or Diamondville) the Mini-ITX motherboards are designed for long-term use in small, quiet PCs ranging from silent mini-itx desktops to home digital media and mini-ITX in carpc projects.

The Mini-ITX boards are based on ultra low power Intel x86 processors CPU, often passively cooled, directly soldered onto the board for greater reliability. Based on low-power-consumption Intel Pentium or Celeron M or Atom / Silverthorne the Mini-ITX Intel boards can be powered with silent mini-ITX DC-DC picoPSUs series. When combined with our mini-ITX power supplies(PSU), sistem integrators can develop smallest possible mini-ITX based enclosures. For embedded mini-ITX enclosures.

Σ System resources and hardware (such as PCI and PCI Express*) require physical memory address locations that can reduce available addressable system memory. This could result in a reduction of as much as 1GB or more of physical addressable memory being available to the operating system and applications, depending on the system configuration and operating system.
