September 8, 2010 - Lanner Electronics released the VES-310, an ultra low energy consuming 3.5‚Äù motherboard made to serve touch screen panel displays and HMI interfaces in industrial settings. The board is made of the new ultra low powered Intel Atom N450 CPU and comes with both VGA and LVDS video outs. The motherboard is purpose built to serve a variety of different needs. The processing power is sufficient for these types of systems, and the board contains a variety of different I/O for displays and connectivity. The VES-310 utilizes Intel Graphics for both LVDS and VGA displays. These displays can be programmed to show independent video, allowing dual video streams. To help with video processing, there is an onboard MPEG 2 hardware decoder.The key to low power consumption comes with Intel‚Äôs newest Atom, the Pineview N450. It is Intel‚Äôs lowest power consuming Atom yet, and still boasts a respectable 1.66 GHz of processing power. The attached SODIMM socket can hold up to 2GB of DDR2 memory.These components allows the VES-310 to have a wide temperature range between 0 and 60 Celsius. This wide temperature range allows the board to be housed in a fanless within some settings. With the addition of a fan, this motherboard can thrive in harsh industrial settings. It features a wealth of I/O connections including line in, audio out, DIO, 2 COM and 2 USB ports. The dual RJ4 LAN ports support Gigabit Ethernet. Additionally, there is also both SATA connections and CompactFlash socket. There is room for expansion both through a proprietary Lanner daughterboard for applications that require LVDS and a mini PCIe slot.
