10 May 2011
BVM Group has augmented its family of compact Micro ATX format motherboards with the introduction of the MS-C71, which combines scalable computing power for heavy processing tasks, a huge array of I/O and expansion slots and integrated high definition graphics capability in a 244 x 244mm footprint.
The mobile CPU and chipset minimise power consumption and reduce the cooling requirements of the finished system. Typical applications will be in kiosks, large-scale displays, industrial control and automation, security and surveillance, gaming, print imaging, digital signage and other applications where fast processing is a fundamental requirement.
The SBC is based on the Intel Mobile QM57 Express chipset, supporting the 32nm Intel Core i7/i5/i3 Mobile processors in the rPGA988A socket with up to 8GB of 1066MHz dual-channel memory. HD audio is provided by the Realtek ALC888 HD Audio codec; HD VGA, 24-bit dual channel LVDS and optional DVI video are supported. Twelve USB2.0, five RS232 and one RS232/422/485 serial ports, two Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 network ports and an S/PDIF audio port are onboard. For mass storage, six ATA II 300MB/s interfaces supporting RAID 0/1/5/10 are provided. Expansion capability includes PCI-Express X16 and X4 slots, two PCI slots, one Mini-PCIe and one Mini-PCI sockets and a Compactflash socket.
Power is from any standard 24-pin ATX PSU, with onboard ACPI 2.0 compliant power management. A programmable 8-bit digital I/O interface, real time clock and watchdog timer also come as standard features.
