Upgrade Now! Axiomtek Unveils Atom-based Low Power PICMG 1.3 Half-size CPU Card – SHB212

The SHB212 single board computer benefits from new-generation Atom processor’s low power and small footprint to provide greater flexibility and cost-savings

Taipei, Taiwan, April 08, 2011- Axiomtek announced SHB212, a new PICMG 1.3 half-size CPU card, comes with the low-power Intel® Atom™ processor D525 dual core 1.8GHz, D425 single core 1.80 GHz, and N455 single core 1.66 GHz. One DDR3 667/800MHz SO-DIMM onboard implements up to 4GB of system memory. Dual-display support is provided through a VGA port and 18-bit single channel LVDS interface. It also comes complete with several I/O like USB 2.0, COM, Gigabit Ethernet, and HD audio. Additionally, the SHB212 only requires +12V DC power input. The advantages of low-power consumption and compact size make this platform well suited for many space-limited and thermally constrained embedded applications, such as DVR, digital security surveillance, gaming machine, visual inspection instruments, and video server.

“Axiomtek’s latest SHB212 PICMG 1.3 half-size CPU card with the Intel® Atom™ processor D425/N455/D525 and Intel® ICH8M I/O controller hub serves a wide range of applications where flexibility, low-power consumption, and thermal efficiency are important. The advanced power saving also allows it to achieve a low total cost of ownership. Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 supports LVDS and VGA in dual display types. Beside, the PICMG 1.3 specification brings advantages of PCI Express to this half-size CPU card that offers four PCIe x1 or one PCIe x4 routed to the backplane,” said Eric Chiang, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek. “To satisfy increasing demands for data transfer speed, the SHB212 provides six USB 2.0 ports and two SATA ports with transfer rates up to 3Gb/s. This newest single board computer is perfect for embedded and automation applications in DVR, digital security surveillance, gaming machine, visual inspection instruments, video server, and much more.”

Other onboard I/O features include two COM ports (1 x RS-232 & 1 x RS-232/422/485), Dual Gigabit LANs, HD audio, and CompactFlash™. With LPC I/O integrated, the SHB212 provides reliable operation and non-stop capability by watchdog timer, as well as SMART FAN feature which controls the fan speed to keep the temperature in a specified range. Additionally, Windows® Vista, Windows® XP embedded, and Linux are all supported.

The SHB212 CPU card is RoHS compliant and will be available around early May, 2011. For more product information, please visit global website www.axiomtek.com or contact our sales representative at info@axiomtek.com.tw.
