  • Fanless 1GHz Pico ITX Car PC with Xenarc x7000

    Here is a video of my finished car pc, and a short demo of it running centrafuse.

    The power supply is a M3 ATX, but to get it fitting in the case, I needed to de-solder the ATX leads and forward the ITX wires from the ATX to ITX adapter that came with the chipset.

    Having did that, the space needed to get all the parts in there was tight. You could not fit a standard 2.5" hdd. I had a Compact Flash to Sata as my primary harddrive, which was much smaller.

    The current drivers for the pico itx do not allow it to do 800x480 (head unit native rez) so hopefully that get fixed soon. Also for some reason the Bios will not remember certain display settings like using DVI... it was saved but when power it cut it reverts back to default settings... but not all bios settings were lost, just ones related to the output.

    Nice, good to see another small setup.
    I had space issues with 2.5" hdd too, although I chose a disk-on-module as my drive.

    New system at design/prototype stage on BeagleBoard.
