MSC Technologies presents its first NanoServer embedded system with the Intel Q87 Express chipset

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, Germany, ) MSC Technologies, a business group of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, a business region of Avnet Inc. (NYSE: AVT), presents at the electronica 2014 in Hall A6, Booth A6.510, with the model N1-Q87 under the label DSM Computer, the first product from the new NanoServer® embedded systems family. The high-performance Box IPC integrates the Intel® Q87 Express desktop chipset and a fourth-generation (desktop series) Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processor with on-chip Intel® HD Graphics (e.g. HD4600). The fast DDR3 1600 SDRAM memory can be expanded to 16 GB.

The new NanoServer® family is equipped with an IO Shield for the simple and flexible integration of different CPU boards in Mini ITX format. All models have the same housing footprint. The standard cover provided for the three available installation heights NN, N1 and N2 has the objective to achieve a low housing price by maximizing the deployment of identical parts of the individual NanoServer® variants.

Despite its small installation height of 79 mm, the compact NanoServer® N1-Q87 is ideal for CPUs from the price-optimized desktop series and offers a number of popular interfaces. In addition to the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 interfaces, two GbE LAN interfaces, Serial ATA and HD Audio are present. The DVI-I and dual DisplayPort (DP) V1.2 graphic connections permit the connection of three independent, high-resolution displays.

For system expansions, the high-end NanoServer® N1-Q87 provides a free PCI Express™ x16 slot for short cards, e.g. a graphic card. In addition, two internal Mini PCI Express™ x1 slots are present, of which one is designed as mSATA (SATA III). The robust industrial housing provides space for two SSDs/HDDs or one SSD/HDD when the free slot is assigned. The SSDs (Solid State Drives) do not have any moving parts and avoid the need for extensive wiring.

The embedded system is supplied via a 12/24 VDC wide-range input or alternatively via an external 100-240 VAC power pack (120 W).
