    Pentium M Mini-ITX!!!

    <<<quote from mini-itx.com>>>

    Pentium M Mini-ITX board from Lippert
    Posted on September 6, 2003


    LiPPERT Automationstechnik GmbH, based in Germany, have released details (but not a release date) of their "Thunderbird" Mini-ITX sized integrated motherboard. The Thunderbird uses a 1.6Ghz Pentium M CPU and 855GM supporting chipset (or a close cousin) - both key components in Intel's Centrino laptop platform. The similarities are so close that given a wireless card, this board could be considered to be a Centrino squashed into a 17cm square board.

    Specifications given include: Intel Extreme Graphics 2; 2 channel AC-97 sound; 1 x 10/100 Mbit and 1 x 1000Mbit Ethernet ports; support for 6 x USB 2.0 ports (4 on board + 2 headers); VGA, Floppy, Keyboard, Mouse connectors; 2 x Serial ports; 1 x Parallel port; 1 x EIDE connector (Ultra ATA 100); PCI slot; Mini-PCI Slot (Type 1 - shown with Intel wireless card in the picture); IrDA header; 2 x 18-Bit LVDS headers; DIMM socket supporting up to 1GB PC2700 DDR333 SDRAM; Type 2 Compact Flash header (on underside of motherboard). Power consumption is "t.b.d.", although passive cooling is stated as "possible"...

    It's unclear at this stage if the Thunderbird is a design tailored exclusively for OEM custom solutions, or will be available for direct sale to the unwashed masses.
