January 222016

January 22, 2016 – IBASE Technology introduces MI990 Mini-ITX motherboard  based on the 6th Gen Intel Core processor family (codename Skylake) manufactured on Intel's 14 nm manufacturing process.

MI990 offers accelerated processing performance and graphics capability to simultaneously drive up to three independent displays with clear, crisp visuals without a discrete graphics card. With features that include up to 32GB of fast DDR4 DRAM memory in two SO-DIMM sockets, it is designed for high-end applications in industrial automation markets.

MI990 integrates the Intel CM236 / QM170 chipset to deliver performance and to accommodate current I/O technologies for fast connectivity including 4x USB 2.0, 6x USB 3.0, 6x serial ports and 2x/4x SATA III, as well as flexible expansion with 1x PCI-E(x16), 2x Mini PCI-E and 1x M.2 slots. The board supports two Gigabit Ethernet ports and other advanced features, such as iAMT (11.0) for remote management and repair of systems, TPM (2.0) for improved systems integrity, vPro and IBASE’s owned iSMART (3.0) that enables energy-efficient systems with various power-saving functions.

There are four MI990 models available in MI990VF and MI990EF series with support for Intel CM236 and QM170 chipsets respectively. The four integrated processors list includes Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5, Intel Core i7-6820EQ, Intel Core i5-6440EQ and Intel Core i3-6100E.
