From Axiomtek comes the NA-813FL small form factor, fanless network appliance platform built around an Intel 945GSE Express chipset and Intel Atom processor N270, with four Gigabit Ethernet ports for the SOHO market segment.

The NA-813FL running on Intel's Atom processor N270 1.6GHz delivers low-power and performance-per-watt. The fanless network appliance platform is integrated with four Gigabit Ethernet ports with one pair supporting LAN bypass function (optional) enhanced reliability required in field application.

The noiseless unit comes in a small package with a height of 44mm and a weight of 2.5kg, allowing it to fit easily into any space-limited environments. The NA-813FL is a suitable choice for applications in VPN, content filtering, UTM, network security gateway and firewall.

The ultra-low voltage Intel Atom processor N270 enables a 100 percent fanless design, yet in spite of small form factor the NA-813FL offers four high-speed Gigabit network connections using Intel 82583V LAN chip. To prevent problems from sudden shutdown, the fanless embedded platform supports optional LAN bypass function through WDT and GPIO pin definitions. It also features BIOS redirection to console port. Additionally, one PCIe Mini card is available for Wi-Fi wireless card installation.

The NA-813FL has 2.5-inch serial ATA HDD bay and CompactFlash card. One DDR2 SODIMM slot supports 400/533 memory up to 2GB capacity. Other I/O features include one DB9 console ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and a power connector. It also supports mainstream Linux kernel 2.6 operating system.

This fanless and noiseless Atom-based network appliance platform will be available around end of August.
