Bay Trail boosts graphics for small form factor embedded board
Products based on the Intel Atom E3800 processor (formerly “Bay Trail”) will be a big trend in Q4, and some small form factor board vendors are already ahead of the game. Leveraging the Intel Gen 7 3D graphics engine capability of the newest Atom System-on-Chip (SoC), the NANO-6060 Nano-ITX board from American Portwell Technology integrates a 24-bit single channel LVDS port, a DisplayPort interface capable of 2560 x 1600 resolution, and 1920 x 1200 resolution VGA port to drive graphics-rich display applications. Measuring 120 mm x 120 mm with 5 W-10 W Thermal Design Power (TDP), the NANO-6060 is well suited for use in portable or fanless system designs.
Portwell offers the NANO-6060 with up to quad-core Intel Atom E3800 processors, and integrates a 204-pin non-ECC SODIMM for high memory capacity. Additional interfaces on the Nano-ITX board include two Gigabit Ethernet ports, a selectable RS232/422/485 COM port, four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, and one PCIe x1 slot for card expansion, among others.
