Avalue Technology's new developed gaming board ACP-GM45 is powered by Intel dual-core GM45 technology, supporting dual views and complied security components and I/O interfaces that gaming systems request, such as CC Talk and JAMMA. ACP-GM45 is a Mini-ITX form factor gaming mainboard that features expandability and delivers graphics and 3-D processing functions to provide gaming system integrators a multifunctional gaming platform.
3-D Graphics Performance
The adopted 45 nanoscience of Intel GM45 features graphics processing technology with GMA 4500, which negates the need for independent graphic chips. This delivers high level graphics and 3-D rendering performance, plus the ICH9M chipset drives system performance and suits many kinds of gaming machines, such as slot machines, video games, or multi-player games. The ACP-GM45 supports versatile Intel dual-core processors, a front-side bus (FSB) up to 1066MHz, and two sets of 4GB DDR2/DDR3 memory controllers, scaling up the processing speed. The features of the ACP-GM45 come on a 170 x 200 cm mainboard.
Focusing on the specificities of the gaming industry, the ACP-GM45 provides security solutions. The security chipset helps defend against software-based attacks, and the EEPROM 64KB read-only encoding function and hardware random number generator (RNG) protects data from being false or stolen. The onboard iButton interface enables users to connect with Internet storage peripherals to identify players on login and trace back players’ records. Two sets of up to 512KB SRAM false-tolerance devices save players’ status and actions in case of emergency, and the battery backup enables connection to warning alarms to decrease damage that owners and players may have.
Powerful Management Capability
Avalue Techonlogy's ACP-GM45 offers system management capabilities. A JAMMA interface, dual independent display support allows for flexible display configurations, two sets of real-time clocks (RTC), two sets of lithium batteries, a 32-bit digital I/O interface, and an electrostatic sensitive device (ESD) that prevents the mainboard from being burned out by unstable electricity and also enables connectivity to many kinds of peripherals, such as lampions.
The ACP-GM45 is aimed at gaming and amusement markets. It enables integration in a wide range of gaming machines, such as bingo, slot machines, video games, arcade games, multi-player machines, etc.
