DFI CR100-CRM Low Power Mini-ITX Supports 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors

2012/08/08 (UTC-6)

DFI brings the mobile-based 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor to the CR100-CRM Mini-ITX embedded board. It is DFI's first Mini-ITX board supporting the new mobile Intel®QM77 Express chipset. This low power board supports a range of mobile-based 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors built on 22-nanometer process technology and boasts a 15% CPU performance increase over the previous generation.

The supported mobile-based processors are the quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-3610QE and the dual-core Intel® Core™ i5-3610ME processors. These processors offer higher performance at lower power consumption than the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors which are also supported on this embedded board.

The integrated next-generation Intel® HD Graphics 4000 engine delivers up to 50% 3D graphics performance improvement and up to 1.8x HD to HD transcode performance increase. The available graphics interfaces can simultaneously display high definition images in 3 independent displays. The Intel® Clear Video HD Technology provides advanced imaging capability for Blu Ray and other high definition video processing. Graphics APIs include DirectX 11, OCL 1.1, and OGL 3.1. All these built-in graphics design provide faster HD video processing and streaming without the need of a discrete graphics card.

The new platform offers cost saving solutions through better manageability and improved security with a new version of Intel® vPro™ Technology (including Intel® Active Management Technology 8.0 [Intel® AMT] and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology) which enables you to better manage and secure your computers with client isolation, network filtering, security agents and anti-virus protection. 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.

In addition, this new platform supports Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology and the 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.

This new mobile platform also introduces Intel® Rapid Start Technology which allows faster resume from a standby mode and the Intel® Smart Response Technology which allows faster loading of frequently used applications.

CR100-CRM supports DDR3/DDR3L SODIMM up to 1600MHz for faster communication between components. It also supports 5.1-channel HD audio with S/PDIF input/output interface and 2 Intel® Gigabit LAN with increased transmission speed for network-intensive applications.

Not only does the board run faster, it is also packed with high performance I/O via the mobile Intel® QM77 Express chipset. The 4 USB 3.0 allows your system to process more data load. The board also provides 6 USB 2.0, 2 SATA 3.0 ports with speed up to 6Gb/s for applications that need fast storage speed, 2 Serial ATA 2.0 ports with speed up to 3Gb/s, and 8 digital I/O ports for device controls. The board also supports 6 Serial COM ports, two of which supports RS232/422/485 with hardware auto flow control to fulfill the demand of industrial application.

The Mini-ITX board offers additional expansion capability via 1 PCIe x16 slot for video capture card, and 2 DFI Proprietary Extension Bus for customized expansion via a riser card. 1 Mini PCIe slot with USB and PCIe x1 signals provides you the flexibility to use a variety of Mini PCIe modules such as Wi-Fi, TV Tuner, video capture and 3.5G.

All these combined features make the CR100-CRM an ideal choice for POS, Lottery, Medical, Kiosk, and ATM applications.
