Backplane Systems Technology has released iBase’s MI996 Mini-ITX Board with 9th Gen Intel CPUs for performance-intensive applications.

The MI996 Mini-ITX motherboard is powered by the latest 9th Gen Intel Xeon E and Core processors are designed for a wide array of applications such as medical, industrial automation, and kiosks. It supports an integrated GPU and PCI-E x16 for a discrete graphics card to run simultaneous displays in four video outputs: eDP, HDMI (2.0a), display port, and DVI-D.

The compact MI996 is suitable for space-constrained applications and packs powerful functionality into a compact Mini-ITX form factor (170mm x 170mm). Enhanced I/O connectivity and expansion comprises six USB 3.1, four USB 2.0, four Serial Ports, four 4x SATA III, a Mini PCI-E, as well as two M.2 Slots for NVMe Storage and CNVi WiFi or Bluetooth connections. It features two Gigabit LAN and up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 SO-DIMM Memory (ECC and non-ECC) for high-performance computing.

Two models of the MI996 are available with the Intel CM246, QM370, and HM370 chipsets to support a range of Intel processors. Other features include a Watchdog Timer, Digital I/O, iAMT (11.6) Remote Management, TPM (2.0) Security, iSMART (3.8) Green Technology, and vPRO (MI996VF series). By consolidating superior performance, versatility, and scalability, the MI996 enables system integrators to deliver a highly optimized embedded solution to their customers.
