August 16, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
The uIBX-210 from the BVM Group is a complete fanless PC housed in a very small rugged extruded aluminium enclosure. Ready to run out of the box, the machine can be supplied with WES2009, WES7 or Windows 7 Professional OS pre-installed on the internal HDD or SSD.

The PC is based on the Intel 3rd Generation Atom N2600 1.6 GHz processor, with the Intel NM10 chipset and supports up to 2 GB of DDR3 memory. The graphics engine is the Intel GMA 3600 with a 400 MHz core speed, driving 1920 x 1200 VGA and 1920 x 1080 HDMI outputs with dual-display capability available. 5.1 HD audio is provided by the Realtek ALC662 codec. A 2.5-in. drive bay is provided for SSD or HDD and a PCIe mini card slot allows options such as WiFi to be installed. TDP is a very low 20W, enabling reliable fanless operation with the enclosure acting as a heat sink.

Four USB ports, a Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, two RS232 and one RS232/422/485 serial ports are provided. Optionally available is 802.11 b/g/n wireless capability. The unit is powered from a 12V external power supply. The complete unit measures 147 x 132 x 45mm and it can be mounted directly to a panel, installed inside a machine or on a VESA mount between a screen and stand.
