Backplane Systems Technology has announced the release of iBase's MI889, a Mini-ITX motherboard featuring a PCI Express x4 slot that can provide higher I/O bandwidth for SATA controller cards in RAID server applications.
The compact (170mm x 170mm) MI889 Mini-ITX motherboard comes with either the Intel Atom N450 single core processor or D510 dual core processor with Intel 82801HM I/O controller.
The Mini-ITX motherboard supports up to 2GB of non-ECC system memory in a single DDR2 socket, dual display (VGA and LVDS), dual Gigabit Ethernet, 4x COM ports, 2x SATA interfaces and 8x USB 2.0 ports.
It is integrated with both a memory controller and an IGP graphics core, performing with better hardware decoding on graphics-intensive multimedia and embedded applications.
Like all other iBase motherboards, the low-power MI889 comes with a long lifecycle.
