18 August 2010 Computer/Embedded Technology

The KINO-QM57A Mini-ITX CPU board from IEI includes a CPU socket for Intel Core i7 and i5 processors and the Mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset with Active Management Technology 6.0.

The platform is designed for high-resolution digital signage, surveillance security monitoring and public infotainment applications.

The CPU board is based on the 32 nm Core i7/i5 processor and supports two DDR III SO-DIMM memory modules up to 8 GB. The QM57 Express chipset allows the playback and transmission of high quality video, and includes embedded Gigabit Ethernet capabilities. The KINO-QM57A has an integrated graphics engine to support up to 1080p HD video playback, and the onboard Intel 82577LM GbE LAN controller offers high-speed network transmission rates. The display output interfaces include two HDMI ports, a VGA port and 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS option. The onboard graphics can support two grouped video signals on two sets of displays, or the same signal broadcast over all three outputs.

The KINO-QM57A has a variety of I/O interfaces including a VGA port, an LVDS connector, two HDMI ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, an SPIDF pin header, four RS232 serial ports, eight USB 2,0, six SATA II connectors, three SATA power connectors powering two SATA drives each, an external 12 V d.c. power input and an internal 2x2-pin power connector, a PCIe Mini card extension, and a PCIe x16 interface. The PCIe x16 is for graphics and I/O use.
