MSC : Fanless PC targets POS, POI applications

With its small dimensions of only 180 x 180 x 55 mm, the PicoBox is the perfect fanless control computer for POS/POI and digital signature applications. The PicoBox augments DSM‘s embedded systems product line with the high-performance NanoServers® and the scalable BookSize PCs for ultra-compact applications.

The PicoBox is currently available at MSC in two variants. The first variant is the PicoBox C2 (96M1611L) model based on the low-power Intel® Atom™ N270 processor with a clock frequency of 1.6 GHz. The integrated Intel® 82945GSE chipset with the Southbridge ICH7M also operates very energy-efficiently. Together they consume only approximately 4.5 W.

The second variant is PicoBox C1 (96M1610L) based on the AMD® Geode™ LX800 processor with 500 MHz and the AMD® CS5536 chip set with internal AMD® 2D VGA controller.

The high-quality PicoBox housing provides space for a 2.5 Inch hard disk (Ultra DMA/33/66/100). The CF socket permits the data storage to a Compact Flash.

The operating temperature range is specified as 0° to +50° C. DSM also provides a two year warranty for the CE-conform PicoBox.
