Mini-ITX board suits graphics intensive applications

A Mini-ITX board from BVM is less than 18mm thick, dependent on choice of heatsink. This, says the company, allows it be installed in slimline displays or embedded systems where space is at a premium.

The tKINO-BW SoC is graphics intensive, supporting up to three independent displays – HDMI 4K up to 3840 x 2160 pixels, 18/24 bit dual channel LVDS up to 1920 x 1200 and VGA up to 1920 x 1200. This is said to suit it for use in applications where multiscreen capability is a key requirement.

Available with a choice of processors ranging from the dual core Celeron N3010 clocked at 2.24GHz and with a TDP of 4W, to the quad core Pentium N3710 running at 2.56GHz and with a TDP of 6W, all versions support fanless operation. Up to 8Gbyte of 1600MHz single channel DDR3L SDRAM can be accommodated in two slots.

There are four USB3.0 ports, whilst mass storage is enabled through two SATAIII 6Gbit/s ports and two Gigabit Ethernet ports on-board. A full size PCIe Mini card, a micro SD card slot and a PCIe slot expansion slot are also provided.
