DFI HD101 Mini-ITX Supports 4th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor and Three Independent Display Interfaces

2013/09/17 (UTC-6)

DFI, a leading provider of embedded computers, today brings the latest Intel® Core™ processors to the HD101-H81 Mini-ITX embedded motherboard, a new addition to its Intel®H81 product line providing low-power consumption and higher performance. This new Mini-ITX form factor with LGA 1150 socket is powered by the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family built on 22-nanometer process technology with the Intel® H81 chipset that delivers up to 5~15% CPU performance increase over the previous generations. The enhancements in CPU performance, media and graphics capabilities, security and power efficiency in the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family are driving innovation in intelligent systems in a variety of market segments such as retail, medical, MAG, DSS and industrial manufacturing.


The Intel® HD Graphics engine integrated into these 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors supports 6 Graphics Execution Units (EUs) with dynamic turbo boost to accelerate video processing, and Intel® Clear Video Technology providing advanced imaging capabilities for Blu-Ray and other high definition video processing such as image stabilization, gamut mapping and frame rate conversion. Performance is further increased through the instruction of Intel® DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA) providing acceleration of complex audio, video, and image processing. Additional features include integrated Intel® graphics accelerator with HDMI, DVI-I and LVDS interfaces support 3 independent displays: HDMI and DVI-I support up to 1920 x 1200 @60Hz resolution, and LVDS supports 24-bit dual channel display.


The HD100-H81 designed with 2 dual channel DDR3/DDR3L SODIMM sockets delivers maximum performance with up to 16GB or 1333/1600MHz low voltage memory for faster communication between components. It also supports 5.1-channel HD Audio with S/PDIF input/output interface and 2 Intel® Gigabit LAN controllers with increased transmission speed for network-intensive applications.


The Intel® H81 express chipset used on this scalable desktop platform delivers faster and more efficient power with improved and flexible I/O, including 2 USB 3.0, 6 USB 2.0, 2 SATA 3.0 ports with data transfer rate up to 6Gb/s, 2 Serial COM ports, 1 12V DC-in jack and 8-bit Digital I/O connector for device controls. The expansion design of this Mini-ITX embedded motherboard also offers additional capabilities for the various demands via multiple PCIe configurations, including 1 PCIe x16 slot (PCIe 2.0) for high performance graphics displays, and 1 Mini PCIe slot that supports USB and PCIe signals, mSATA, and half size Mini PCIe card.


Based on these features described above, the HD101-H81 Mini-ITX embedded motherboard is a perfect product for a whole range of applications such as gaming machine, industrial control automation, medical equipment, telecom, and transportation.
