Westerville, O. - Micro Industries Corp. announced the release of the mNLX810E, a mini-NLX CPU board featuring the new Communications I/O Controller Hub (C-ICH) from Intel.

The mNLX810E offers OEMs a compact design for industrial, medical, and commercial applications. It uses the Intel Communications I/O Controller Hub (C-ICH) in place of several traditionally used board components. The C-ICH includes two serial ports and two Ethernet controllers, combined with the full capabilities of the 810E Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH), which alleviates the need for a separate graphics controller, reduces the number of parts required and, consequently, the board's overall cost.

'We are pleased that Micro Industries selected the C-ICH component for their newest CPU board. Combining the features of the 810E GMCH with our new C-ICH product provides OEMs with a cost effective, flexible architecture that will support a broad range of OEM applications,' said Ton Steenman, director of Intel's Embedded Intel Architecture Division.

According to Micro Industries president and ceo Michael Curran, 'The Intel C-ICH allows us to implement the critical features of our current generation NLX CPU products with technology that can be scaled to support even the most demanding requirements of our OEM customers. The mNLX810E also demonstrates our continuing commitment to the NLX form factor. It is a viable choice for applied computing applications now and for many years into the future.'

Micro Industries' mNLX810E features:

Supports Intel Celeron processors with 128 KB integrated cache and Intel Pentium III processors with 256 KB integrated cache and 32-512 MB of SDRAM.

Designed by Intel, mini-NLX form factor supports larger memory modules, the latest microprocessors, and AGP video technology, and provides better access to motherboard components, enabling system-level design and integration flexibility. The dockable design also allows for easy removal for upgrades or service. Dimensions are 8' x 10'.

  • National Semiconductor LM80 Microprocessor System Hardware Monitor monitors five voltages and three fan speeds, and provides POST code RAM storage.

  • The 810E GMCH directly supports AGP graphics, alleviating the need for an additional graphics controller.

  • Sound Blaster Pro compatible sound system features stereo input and output.

  • Supports three general-purpose RS-232 ports and one configurable port for RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485. Two of the ports are included on the C-ICH.

  • One ECP/EPP/IEEE 1284 port for fast peripheral communications.

  • Two USB ports.

  • Additional features: two-stage watchdog timer, two EIDE channels, floppy disk drive interface, PS/2 keyboard/mouse interface, real time clock with battery backup, advanced power supply control (APC), and advanced power management.
