6-M (ICH6-M) provides the performance and high scalability our customers need for today’s cost-sensitive embedded applications,” explains Jimmy Chang, American Portwell Technology’s product marketing manager. “Powered by the Celeron and Pentium processors, the WADE-8044 and WADE-8047 Mini-ITX embedded system boards enable OEMs and ODMs to accelerate the deployment of next-generation platforms that can maximize their competitive advantage while minimizing their development risks,” Chang adds.

 Cost-Effective Additions
According to Frank Shen, American Portwell Technology’s product marketing director, Portwell’s new WADE-8044 and WADE-8047 Mini-ITX boards were developed in response to the market demand for cost-effective or entry-level embedded board with low voltage, dual display solutions that were also fanless. “WADE-8044 features VGA and DVI on I/O and WADE-8047 features dual VGA on I/O,” Shen confirms. “Our customers also gain peace of mind from the long life cycle support inherent with every Portwell product.”
