The MX525DC Mini ITX motherboard is designed based on Intel's Pineview D platform utilizing the Intel® Atom™ D525 processor, a new dual core, low power version of the Intel® Atom™ family. In addition to its dual core feature, the D525 processor runs at 1.8 GHz processing speed and supports DDR3 system memory. The motherboard also provides rich I/O interfaces and TPM 1.2 to support additional devices and security features. The MX525DC supports wide range DC power from 12V, 15V ~ 24V. We offer the ATX power version for OEM orders only.

The MX525DC is ideal for POS, Lottery, Medical, Gaming, high resolution digital signage, surveillance security monitoring, and Kiosk applications. The Intel® Atom™ processor enables low-power and affordable entry-level mobile computing giving system builders and OEMs a wide range of flexibility when designing the products around this architecture.
