  2. Intel D945GCLF2D motherboard

    by , 05-18-2009 at 11:28 AM


    Some forum members were already talking about this mobo but I thought I would shine some light on the subject. I had a chance to play a little bit with it and see if it's working etc.

    Form factor Mini-ITX /micro-ATX compatible
    Processor Integrated Intel® Atom™ processor 330 with a 533 MHz system bus
    * One 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
    * Support for DDR2 533/667 MHz DIMMs
    * Support for up to 2 GBΣ of system memory

    Chipset Intel® 945GC Express Chipset and
    Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7 (ICH7)

    * Eight USB 2.0 ports
    * Two Serial SATA ports (3.0 GB/s)
    * One parallel ATA IDE interface with UDMA 33, ATA-66/100 support
    * One serial port
    * One parallel port
    * PS/2* keyboard and mouse ports

    I tested this board with the following config:
    - 80 gig seagate SATA hdd
    - 300 w power supply
    - 2g of DDR2 800MHz Buffalo ram (1 stick)
    - Dell mouse and keyboard (both usb)
    - memorex external DVD via usb

    The board was able to install XP Home flawlessly, and so far, is very quick. Startup time 46.8 seconds and shutdown time was 8.5 seconds.

    You can't look at this board without comparing it to the previous LF2 model.
    Unfortunately the only thing I was able to find, along with others here on the forum, the S-Video is the only difference. The previous model has it and is priced on newegg for 79.99 and this model doesn't have priced at 76.99 on newegg.

    So it seems for $3 less you can get a board without S-Video. Why not include DVI or display port on the next model?

  5. CES 2009 - ICO Connects your car via Satellite

    by , 01-14-2009 at 07:32 AM
    We have been working with ICO for about 2 years to build out the in vehicle user interface for the satellite they launched late last summer. We built a new custom UI based on StreetDeck, integrated with their satellite modems, added data services and even implemented a program listings interface. We are a bit biased but this looks like it is going to blow away cruise cast with a small antenna, a great price point and an array of bi-directional data services all augmenting their 10-15 channels of high quality video.
