An ultra low power industrial mini-ITX motherboard features the latest Atom N2600, N2800 and D2700 dual core processors with integrated graphics (GMA 640/400MHz) and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) on a single chip. These have the same performance and functionality as bigger desktop computer systems, but are integrated into the small Mini-ITX form factor targeted at compact applications. AIMB-214 from Advantech comes with rich I/O connectivity including up to six USB 2.0 ports and six COM ports integrated into a standard 170 x 170 mm form factor. These boards also support dual display output for LVDS, embedded display port and VGA.

AIMB-214 is powered by the newest ultra low power Intel Atom processors, which are built on 32nm process technology. The thermal design power rating of the Intel N2600 dual core architecture is 3.5W, while with the dual core 1.8 GHz processor is 8W, enabling future power reductions, smaller systems and performance improvements. AIMB-214 utilizes the Intel NM10 chipset, provides both DC12V & ATX12V support, offering a lower total cost of ownership. It can support system memory up to either 2 Gbyte or 4 Gbyte of DDR3 1066 SDRAM, depending on the processor. Connectivity and expansion options include CompactFlash, PCI bus, six COM ports, six USB ports, 8-bit GPIO, two SATA III and an optional TPM security feature. Mini SATA and Mini-PCIe expansion slots enable easy integration, while a dual Intel chipset, 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet port is also available to deliver high-speed networking.

With integrated, embedded Intel Gen3.5+ graphics core and 400/640 MHz render clock frequencies for the N2600/N2800/D2700, AIMB-214 offers exciting integrated 3D graphics and video capabilities with up to 224 Mbyte of shared graphics memory. AIMB-214 supports dual display with multiple configurations such as VGA + LVDS or VGA + eDP, and LVDS 24-bit dual channel for large size panels. Video output is complemented by HDMI audio for a complete audio and visual solution.
