Durable Mainboards for Industry und Digital Signage Applications
Munich/Augsburg, November 13, 2009 ― Fujitsu presents two new mini-ITX mainboards for the use in industrial applications. AMD-chipset based, the models D2963-S1 and -S2 are equipped with two different AMD Mobile processors. Designed for the use in 24/7 applications under full load and in high temperature ranges, both versions are especially suitable for the fields of Digital Signage, Kiosk, IPC or medical technology. The serial production of the industrial mainboards will start in Augsburg in January 2010.
The products will first be presented at the international exhibition SPS/IPC/DRIVES in Nuremberg, hall 8, stand 302.
The mini-ITX boards are equipped with an AMD M690E & SB 600 chipset for DDR2 800/667 SDRAM Memory. The D2963-S1 supports the energy-saving AMD processors Mobile Sempron 200 U (1 GHz/TDP = 8W), whereas D2963-S2 is run by AMD’s Mobile Athlon Neo X2 L325 (1,5 GHz/TDP = 18 W). A powerful ATI Radeon X1250 graphics controller is integrated in the chipset. VGA, DVI and 24bit Dual Channel LVDS are combinable and also supported in Dual Independent Display mode. Additionally, the mainboards offer the following features:
- Temperature-dependent cooler controlling via internal microcontroller
- High Definition Audio
- 2 x GigaBit LAN
- PCI, PCI Express x1 and Mini-PCI Express-Slot
- 2x Serial ATA Interfaces
- 8 USB 2.0 Interfaces
- Compact Flash Card-Support
- Watchdog onboard
Power is supplied either by an internal or external 19 to 24 Volt supply unit. The mainboard has been designed for the use in an extended temperature range of 0 to 60°C and offers an availability of up to five years.
It is aimed mainly at customers looking for a high performance with low power consumption at a small form factor – all this at a favourable price. Linux users will benefit from a free „Embedded Linux Board Support Package“ by emlix, which is part of the evaluation kit. Pre-installed on a CF-card, the Emlix solution makes the mainboard ready to use. Users of Windows receive a free „Board Support Package“ for embedded XP.
For the first time, Fujitsu offers a special case for its mini-ITX mainboard, which has been designed especially for the D2963-S models. Despite its compact construction (52 x 191 x 250 mm), the case is highly expandable. A 2,5“ SATA hard drive, a USB-WLAN Module and a low profile PCI Card can be added. The second serial interface the D2963-S offers onboard is also supported. A built-in micro-switch, connected to the D2963-S’ intrusion connector, monitors any unauthorised opening. Additionally, the mini-ITX case can be secured against theft by a Kensington lock. An optional mounting angle with VESA-conform drilling holes enables a simple assembly on displays and monitors. The whole package is CE-certified.
