  • Nano ITX in an Evo

    Well guys here we go !

    I think this is almost the first Nano ITX project

    I got most of the parts in from digitalww and mp3car stores

    Its on the bench and working from a spare car battery, the nano and m1 atx doesnt seem to use any power.

    i have had the system run for 24 hours off the battery alone and the m1 didnt detect a low voltage !!!! this was powering the board in windows, displaying only the desktop, so power consumption would be minimal, I was chuffed at that result ! means that even if the power off doesnt happen, chances of a flat battery are minimal, the longest the car stands still for is 12-14 hours, this is also good for update purposes.


    The nano heatsink has reached a high temp of 43.1 deg celsius when measured with my pyrometer, and this with the fan off, I will run it with the fan on in the car as the car environment isnt as controlled as a bench

    The nano itx is awesome, I dont find it slow at all (my laptop 2ghz celeron with 512MB ram) is slower on most tasks, my desktop a P4 3.0 with 512mb is slower on some tasks but obviously much faster on others

    What all I crammed into the box...made up by a local perspex supplier at a cost of 12USD
    The boxes dimensions are
    165mm x 210mm x 65 mm all dimensions are external

    The innards

    1 x M1 a t x power supply
    1 x Nano itx mobo with 512MB RAM
    1 x Dlink USB Fm Radio - hardwired to usb port to eliminate connections and also using the audio in of the cd on the mobo, so no external connections
    1 x Griffin airclick receiver
    1 x 60gb 2.5 hdd
    1 x notebook adapter (although if you got the right cables the nano supports this natively
    1 x a t x power adapter
    1 x 60mm case fan
    1 x slot load cd/cdrw/dvd

    all it needs is power (+ and - and ign +)
    and then the usb from the creative usb sound card to work 100%

    here are a few pictures !
    please comment and also please let me know if you are aware of anyone with a good obd interface for the Evo8 ?

                              the pc will be located under the steering column
                              with the slot load accesible through the gap between the steering column and other plastic bits
                              the screen (motorised 1 din) will go in the normal radio location
