Axiomtek announced the launch of the MANO872, a Mini ITX motherboard designed for the new 22nm 3rd Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors in the LGA1155 socket with Intel Q77 Express chipset. With features of Intel Active Management Technology (iAMT), Intel Small Business Advantage solution, Intel Smart Response Technology, and Intel Rapid Storage Technology, the high-performance MANO872 delivers maximum security and manageability. This industrial-grade Mini ITX motherboard also supports 16 GB DDR3 1333/1600 system memory, PCI Express x16 Gen3, USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s with RAID, and Trusted Platform Module 1.2. With the new Intel HD Graphics with DX11 support, the embedded board features powerful graphic processing and three independent displays using the DisplayPort, DVI-I, and LVDS connectors on board. This platform is ideal performance for high-end industrial applications, such as storage server, POS, kiosk, medical, gaming, digital signage, and surveillance security monitoring.



"Axiomtek's MANO872, our new Mini ITX motherboard with 3rd Generation Intel Core processor family and Intel Q77 Express chipset. Its four SATA connectors allow storage requirements to be met with ease. Additionally, this motherboard offers four COM ports, four USB 2.0 ports as well as four USB 3.0 ports for system integrators in need of numerous and flexible interfaces. Users also can increase board functionality with one PCIe x16 and PCI Express Mini Card slots. Furthermore, the MANO872 enables support for up to three independent displays via DisplayPort, DVI-I and LVDS, making it ideal for multimedia and signage applications. It also supports iAMT 8.0, Intel RST, TPM 1.2, and SATA RAID for network-intensive applications. The outstanding MANO872 enables system developers to design extremely high-end applications," said David Chiu, PM of Product Planning Division at Axiomtek.

In terms of rich I/O ports, the MANO872 offers four USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, two SATA-600 with RAID function, two SATA-300 (one with SATA DOM supported), two Gigabit LANs, four COM ports, DisplayPort, DVI-I, LVDS, digital I/O (4 channel IN and 4 channel OUT), and HD audio. One PCIe x16 is ready for a separate graphics card and one PCI Express Mini Card is for WiFi and 3G wireless communication modules. To ensure reliable operation, this compact embedded platform supports watchdog timer and hardware monitoring. The MANO872 also meets all requirements for the Windows 7 OS.

Advanced Features
[*]Supports LGA1155 socket 3rd Generation Intel Core processors
[*]2 204-pin SO-DIMM DDR3-1333/1600 MHz slots max. up to 16 GB
[*]PCIe x16 Gen3 supported

Competition? There is hardly any competition in this market segment. This is designed for business/factory integration, hence the dual LAN, triple digital screen support (most enthusiast desktop boards only have dual support and do not solder on the additional output logic required), but most importantly, two native COM ports. Of course, let's not forget the security features of the Q chipset either. The feature set is quite broad, this can handle anything from digital signage to potentially automating a factory.

Indeed so. I like what I'm seeing here. Still needs a price though. :p

Desktop boards don't tend to sport LVDS, that's a laptop thing usually. Maybe this platform is intended to almost act like an embedded computer? I would love to see what the price on this board will end up being.

When VIA was (pretty much) the only contender in the ITX market LVDS was more or less standard.

What I meant is that 1155 boards that have DP, HDMI and DVI usually only support two of the three digital outputs.
