Lanner Electronics Inc. has released the VES-300 low-power, economically-priced 3.5-inch single-board computer (SBC) utilizing the 945GSE + ICH7M chipset and powered by an Intel Atom N270 processor. This SBC is designed to be deployed in a variety of industrial and commercial settings.

The new SBC has serial ATA support, comes with a CompactFlash socket, and holds up to 2GB of RAM. It has six USB and four COM ports for peripheral connectivity and two Ethernet ports for network communication.

The VES-300 is built around the Intel ATOM N270, which consumes minimal power and has a small thermal footprint while still offering 1.6GHz of processing power. The motherboard is designed to be integrated into a fanless system, relying only on a passive CPU heat sink for cooling. It can operate between 0C and 60C.

The VES-300 is designed for vibrant displays with integrated graphics via Intel 945GSE. It supports VGA and LVDS outputs and has a SDVO LVDS transmitter, which enables the LVDS output to operate at 24 bits rather than 18. This higher bandwidth enables the VES-300 to display more colors for larger, more vibrant displays.

In addition to the sic USB 2.0 and four COM ports, Dual 10-/100-/1000Mbit/s RJ45 Ethernet ports are provided, controlled via a Realtek RTL8111C. There is a Mic-in and Line-out for audio applications.

The board includes one SO-DIMM slot that will hold up to 2Gbyte of RAM, a CompactFlash socket, and a serial ATA port for a hard drive or solid-state drive.

The VES-300 supports Linux kernel 2.4.16 or above, Windows XP (32bit), Windows 2000, XP Embedded and CE Embedded 6.0 operating systems.
