BCM Advanced Research - An Industry Leader Since 1990 in Industrial Motherboards & Systems
  eNewsletter 06/23/08  

BCM is proud to introduce our new industrial barebone systems – BI450-965GME and BI450-945GME integrated with MX965GME or MX945GME Mini ITX motherboards with enhanced graphics.

The robust RoHS chassis designed for BI450-965GME and BI450-945GME is measured 12.5” (W) x 8.5” (D) x 3.44” (H). It is an industrial space-saving unit with improved graphics and bandwidth hardware features. This miniITX PC is a powerful solution especially for medical & print imaging equipment, industrial automation, interactive Kiosk, digital signage, network appliances and many other multimedia applications. The comparison table on the next column will show you the differences between these two units.

Both BI450-965GME and BI450-945GME support Intel Core 2 Duo CPU up to 2.2 GHz. They are also Microsoft Windows Vista ready barebone systems. Both units are able to provide high performance operation for multimedia applications that perform 24/7 non-stop operation. With an optimized cooling design, both barebone systems can pass vigorous thermal tests in both high and low temperature environment. This versatile box can either be rack mounted or wall mounted (with optional brackets) or a desktop box.

Enhanced Dual Display
BI450-965GME supports dual display via the combinations of HDMI, DVI, VGA and TV-out outputs. Its onboard Intel GME965 Express Chipset features the Mobile Intel GMA X3100 and offers enhanced graphics and 3D rendering performance, along with improved high-definition video playback. 

Dual Gigabit Ethernet
There are two RJ-45 network connection interfaces, Intel 82573L and Intel 82566DC chipsets that located on the rear I/O to provide a flexible network solutions such as 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet with LAN manageability. Additional graphic card or LAN card can be accessed via the PCI slot.

Advanced USB Ports
In order to maximize the motherboard’s USB support, there are two USB ports designed in the front Panel right above the power switch and LED power indicators. There are total six USB ports for BI450-965GME and four USB ports for BI450-945GME barebone systems.

FCC/CE, UL Certification
BCM's motherboard products are FCC/CE certified. We are able to provide UL certification for the entire barebone system through custom services.

Cost-Saving and Easy to Upgrade
When "Cost-Saving" and "Environmental Protection" come to be a requirement, we are able to configure the chassis to either downgrade or upgrade by replacing it with another miniITX motherboard and the rear I/O shield.

New Industrial Mini ITX PC with PCIe x 16 and PCI Riser Card Expansion and Onboard Dual Display Designed for Medical, Digital Signage, and Kiosk Applications
BCM has been providing industrial grade motherboards, barebone and systems since 1990. What makes our products industrial graded?  BCM is ISO 9001-2000 certified. We retain strict ECO/ECN process. The products are 100% factory burn-in or JTAG testing. Our motherboards and systems are designed for 24/7 operation and support 3-5 year life cycles. 3 to 5 year lifecycles. Everything we build is designed to support 3 to 5 years or more. Components are selected from embedded roadmaps and from vendors with track records in this space. Memory, processor and component trends are also considered. This allows you to reduce the cost of redesigning, re-qualifying, and re-certifying year after year saving valuable resources and reducing time-to-market. Designed for 24/7 Operation: The high-grade components we use, combined with the high density component placement in our designs, separates our system boards from the standard commercial boards designed for 9-to-5 use in a non-challenging desktop environments. Our system boards are designed for 24/7 operation in non-optimum conditions. Our customers demand strict ECO (engineering change order) control and no surprises. We understand that your FDA or Gaming Certification cannot accept hardware or software changes without advanced notification and potentially re-qualification. Our holistic approach to ECO and revision control guarantees no surprise hardware or firmware changes ever.
