Mini-ITX Goes 12 V

The ITOX NP101-D16C Mini-ITX motherboard only requires a 12-V power source, making it ideal for automotive and industrial applications. It runs a 45-nm, 1.6-GHz Intel Atom N270 processor in conjunction with Intel’s 945GSE Express chipset and ICH7M I/O controller hub. Its total system thermal design power (TDP) is rated less than 15 W. This low-power motherboard’s 240-pin DDR2 DIMM socket can handle up to 2 Gbytes of DDR2 400- or 533-MHz memory. It supports an 18-bit low-voltage differential signal (LVDS) display interface, a VGA graphics interface, and a serial digital video output (SDVO) connector for optional DVI or 24-bit LVDS display interfaces. The motherboard sports two SATA ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, two Serial COM ports, two PCI Express Gigabit LAN controllers, one PCI Express x1 slot, and one PCI slot.
