DFI SB331-D Low-Cost microATX Embedded Board Supports 2nd Generation Intel Core Processor

2011/11/22 (UTC-6)

DFI, a leading provider of embedded x86 products, today announces its new SB601-C embedded board designed specifically for legacy PCI bus applications. This ATX form factor board utilizes the low-cost Intel B65 Express chipset and supports the 2nd generation Intel Core i7-2600, i5-2400, and i3-2120 processors that feature 32-nanometer process technology providing higher performance at lower power than previous processors. For cost sensitive applications, the SB601-C ATX embedded board also supports the economical Intel Pentium processor 850.

The Intel HD Graphics 2000 engine integrated into these scalable desktop 2nd generation Intel Core processors supports six graphics execution units with dynamic turbo boost to accelerate video processing, and Intel Clear Video Technology providing advanced imaging capability for Blu Ray and other high definition video processing. Performance is further increased through the introduction of Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) to the instruction set, providing acceleration of complex audio, video, and image processing. DVI and VGA graphics interface connectors provide dual independent display support up to 1,920 x 1,200 @ 60Hz and 2,048 x 1,536 @ 75Hz resolutions, respectively. An optional SDVO-LVDS daughterboard supports LVDS display up to 1600x1200 resolution and dimming control via hot keys.

In addition, this new platform supports Intel Hyper-Threading and improved Intel Turbo Boost Technology, which enables each processor core to handle two instruction threads and dynamically increase the clock speed when all cores are not fully utilized. This provides increased performance over the previous generation platform for both multi-core and non-multi-core optimized application programs. The combination of Intel Hyper-Threading, Intel Turbo Boost improvements, and the new three-level cache subsystem insures higher performance at reduced power consumption across a broad-spectrum of embedded processing applications.

This scalable desktop platform supports up to 32GB DDR3 1066/1333MHz memory, 5.1-channel HD audio with S/PDIF input/output interface, 2 Gigabit LAN for increased transmission speed, and up to 2 UltraDMA 33/66/100Mbps IDE devices for extending extra hard disk storage. The Intel B65 Express chipset used on this ATX embedded board delivers high performance I/O. It provides five Serial ATA 2.0 ports with speed up to 3Gb/s, one SATA 3.0 ports with speed up to 6Gb/s, 10 USB 2.0 ports, 6 Serial COM ports, and 8 digital I/O ports for device controls.

The SB601-C offers expansion capability via 7 PCI slots for network cards, audio cards, modems, TV tuner cards, disk controllers, and OEM proprietary PCI bus cards. The board also comes with a Mini PCIe slot that supports half-length or full-length Mini PCIe card.

These features make the SB601-C ideal for intensive applications such as gaming machine, industrial control automation, medical equipment, telecom, and transportation.
