Measuring only 100 x 72mm, the new LP-180 Pico-ITX motherboard from BVM is based on the AMD A55E Fusion Controller Hub, running the AMD dual-core TDP T56N APU at 1.65GHz and addressing up to 4GB of SDRAM at 1333MHz. It provides high performance graphics at low power consumption and its small physical size enables it to be embedded in systems where space is at a premium.
It is particularly suitable for use in a wide variety of applications such as digital signage, thin client, information kiosk, point-of-sale, casino gaming and industrial control systems. AMD claims that the T56N outperforms the Intel Atom D525 by a factor of 2.3 in a series of benchmark tests.
The integrated graphics are extremely versatile, supporting Microsoft’s DirectX 11, Apple’s Open CL and the cross-platform API OpenGL 4.0. Video is managed by the AMD Radeon HD6320, HD audio by the Realtek ALC888 Codec. Supported video interfaces include VGA, DVI or 18-bit single channel LVDS with single or dual-independent high resolution displays and hardware decode support for H.264, VC-1, MPEG2, WMV, DivX and Adobe Flash.
I/O includes 2 x RS232 ports, a 300MB/s SATAII mass storage interface, a GigaLAN port, 4 x USB2.0 ports and a PCIE mini card expansion socket.
