A new small server in a Mini-ITX form factor is based on Intel's C206 chipset and Xeon processor E3-1200 series and Core i7/i5/i3 processors, and uses the Mini-ITX form factor to provide a very small server board. The WADE-8011 from American Portwell is designed to provide high performance with greater power efficiency and is suitable for applications such as network security, storage server, POS, lottery, medical, gaming, high-resolution digital signage, surveillance security monitoring and kiosk applications. 

WADE-8011's main features include: two DIMM support dual channel ECC/UNB or non-ECC DDR3 SDRAM up to 32 Gbyte; dual display via VGA/DVI/HDMI; Intel HD Graphics 3000; two SATA 3.0 connectors (up to 6 Gbit/s) and four SATA 2.0 connectors (up to 3 Gbit/s), and RAID 0, 1, 5, 10; one PCIe x16 and one PCIe x1 plus USB 2.0 via SDVO connector (PCI x16 can directly split into two PCIe x8 via riser card without add-on PCIe switch); dual GbE based on PCIe x1 high bandwidth I/O interface; and Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) 7.0.

The very small WADE-8011 is capable of providing features required by high-end servers, such as power savings and maximum utilization of space, says Robert Feng, product marketing manager at American Portwell Technology. Network security applications require high-performance PCIe x8 speed and WADE-8011 provides two Gen 2 PCIe x8 channels without the need to add on a PCIe switch. This is twice as fast as the PCIe Gen 1 and gives the user multi-GbE, and a 10G or higher Ethernet platform that is cost-effective and has unbeatable performance.
