RX170Q Gold Plated High Performance mATX Motherboard

BCM RX170Q, High Reliability & High Performance Micro ATX Motherboard

BCM's RX170Q Micro ATX motherboard supports the 7th generation 14nm Intel Core i7, i5, i3 and Celeron processors, code named Kaby Lake platform. These processors offer faster CPU performance and stunning graphics with optimized 4K capabilities and improved power efficiency over the 6th generation processors.

Besides the CPU performance, BCM's RX170Q uATX motherboard is designed to ensure the highest reliability utilizing gold plated pins for its critical high-speed connectors including memory, SATA, PCIe, power, M.2, and USB 3.0. Additionally, these connectors are locking type. This combination of gold plating and locking ensures superior high speed signal conductivity, wear and corrosion resistance in tough environments, and that critical connections stay connected. The RX170Q delivers high performance and higher reliability especially designed for test instruments, medical devices, video intensive applications, and any equipment that may be mobile and subject to connector wearing vibrations.

Rich Expansion Slots and I/O Interfaces

BCM's RX170Q provides many onboard expansion slots including PCIe x16, x4, x1, mini-PCIe and M.2. The board also provides many internal and external I/O interfaces including dual Gigabit LAN ports, USB 3.0 and 2.0, five COM ports, 6 SATA III, audio jacks and PS/2 Keyboard & Mouse. The RX170Q supports three independent displays via DVI-D, two DisplayPorts, LVDS, and optional eDP.
