Advansus, a joint-venture company of ASUS and Advantech, has unveiled new series of Intel-based motherboards.
The i945GM3-DCQI is a highly integrated mini-ITX motherboard built around Intel Core 2 Duo and a mobile Intel 945GM Express Northbridge and an ICH7-M Southbridge.
Among the notable features of this high-performance MB include: 24-bit LVDS, DVI, VGA, 5.1CH amplified audio, GigaLAN.
Generous I/O connections are available: 4 x COM, 8 x USB, 2 x SATA and 16-bit GPIO.
The i945GM3-DCQI is a multi-purpose platform for demanding multimedia applications like: POS, KIOSK, digital signage, gaming, medical and many others.
The i945GM3-DCQI accommodates Intel 945GM Express chipset that supports Intel Core 2 Duo processors, Intel GMA950 and dual channel DDR2 667 SDRAM up to 4GB.
Derived from Intel 945GM and Chrontel CH7307C chips, i945GM3-DCQI supports onboard LVDS in both dual-channel 18-bit, or single channel 24-bit.
The Intel GMA 950 enables a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536 at 75 Hz and powers hardware acceleration for Microsoft DirectX 9.
The Chrontel CH7307C supports the full operating range of Intel's SDVO (Serial Digital Video Output) input port (1-2GHz) and the scalable DVI output bandwidth reaches 165MHz.
Rich I/O with amplified audio:
The i945GM3-DCQI uses PCI Express technology to maximise I/O performance. It supports a 64-bit PCI expansion slot, two 300MB/s series ATA ports, a CompactFlash slot, eight USB ports, four COM ports and 16-bit GPIO.
Integrated with Intel ICH7-M and Realtek ACL888 chipsets, the i945GM3-DVQI delivers 5.1 channel amplified audio output suitable for driving efficient loudspeakers.
The mini-ITX motherboard runs 1000Mbps Ethernet through the Realtek 8110B Gigabit LAN chip.
A quality inexpensive platform:
I945GM3-DCQI provides a good platform that combines all benefits of Intel 945GM chipset and the Core2 Duo processor.
The wide variety of I/O connections and the advanced multimedia functionality make the i945GM3-DCQI ideally suitable for outfitting any industry-grade embedded systems.
