DFI, a leading provider offering a wide range of products for diversified industry applications, today announces 3 new Mini-ITX embedded motherboards powered by the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family — HM100-QM87, HM101-QM87, and HM103-QM87. The 3 models are built on 22-nanometer process technology offering higher processing performance, superior graphics display support, and evolutionary improvements in system memory and I/O interfaces. Thanks to the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor and mobile-based Intel® QM87 express chipset, these boards boast a 5~15% CPU performance increase over the previous generations.
The integrated 4th generation Intel® HD Graphics engine provides smooth flash playback, rich 2D/3D graphics with high quality playback, and Intel® Clear Video Technology that supports advanced imaging capabilities for Blu-Ray and other high definition video processing such as image stabilization, gamut mapping and frame rate conversion. The onboard graphics features 4 display ports: 1 HDMI, 1 DVI-I, 1 LVDS, and 1 DP, allowing you to choose the best combination to suit various requirements.
The QM87-based Mini-ITX boards designed with 2 dual channel DDR3/DDR3L SODIMM sockets deliver maximum performance with up to 16GB. The Gigabit LAN ports support iAMT9.0 for network-intensive applications. In addition, the Intel® QM87 chipset based on the low-power mobile platform provides flexible I/O, including 8 USB ports, 2 SATA ports with RAID 0/1, 2 COM ports, 1 LPC connector for additional COM/Parallel ports, and 4-bit input and 4-bit output GPIO for device controls. The expansion design of the 3 Mini-ITX embedded motherboards also offers additional capabilities for various demands via 1 PCIe x16 slot (PCIe 3.0) and 1 Mini PCIe slot that supports USB and PCIe signals, and mSATA. In order to provide additional options to customers, the 3 models are packed with different power connectors: HM100-QM87 with 1 24-pin ATX, HM101-QM87 with 1 12V DC-in (default) or 1 4-pin ATX (optional), and HM103-QM87 with 13~24V DC-in.
The 3 Mini-ITX industrial motherboards with expansive features are the ideal choices for a whole range of applications such as gaming machine, medical equipment, industrial control automation, security & surveillance, smart grid, ATM, and POS.
