DFI Releases Intel Atom Based Fanless Embedded System – ES951

DFI releases the new ES951 fanless embedded system equipped with the 3.5” subcompact NP951-B16C SBC. Featuring an Intel Atom N270 Processor and Intel 945GSE / ICH7M chipset with low power consumption, the ES951 is ideal for embedded computing applications requiring a compact passively-cooled platform.

The NP951-B16C SBC features up to 2GB of system memory using one 200-pin DDR2 400/533MHz SO-DIMM, VGA display port, and 24-bit HD audio with S/PDIF I/O support. The compact embedded system is constructed of electro-galvanized cold-rolled steel and aluminum, with provision for use in wall mount or desktop applications. It is supplied with a universal 60-watt power adaptor for use with 100-240 VAC at 50-60Hz line input.

Features and Benefits:
  • Fanless system design
  • Drive bays for slim HDD and CF Card
  • Serial port with Power
  • Low Power Consumption
  • Powered by 12V DC-in external adapter
  • Easy accessible case design simplifies assembly
This embedded system provides flexibility for wall mount applications, by allowing the mounting brackets to be attached to either the top or bottom of the chassis. This light-weight 1.13kg system measures only 125.6 mm in width, 172 mm in depth, and 52 mm in height, making it suitable for a wide-range of embedded computing applications.
The ES951 embedded system features fanless-cooling and rear panel I/O ports, including two COM ports (COM1 powered), one Kensington security slot to prevent opportunist theft, one Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, two USB ports, one DC-IN port, one PS/2 port, one MIC input and one LINE out port.

This compact embedded system provides an ideal solution for embedded market segments, such as digital signage, gaming machine, kiosk, medical electronics, industrial control, security & surveillance, and telecommunications.

I was just thinking the same thing. Looks like you could use it as a car PC if you had proper electrical provisions. Connectivity/expandability is limited though.

I like DFI and all but i think this is kinda fail. You would get so much better out of purchasing and building a Zotac based system.

from DFI, i would think they would have used a 330 and gave you a whole bunch of overclocking tools to go along with it, including a turbo button.

you do realise that DFI originally only made business oriented motherboards? This isn't for gamers but is a replacement for their aging older platforms for places such as checkouts. Hence why theres a serial port.
