M350 Universal Mini-ITX Enclosure
The M350 Universal Mini-ITX enclosure features one of the smallest footprints to date taking Mini-ITX kit miniaturization to a whole new level. Please note that with the 60mm fan installed on the Zotac motherboard, only 1 x 2.5" storage drive can be installed inside this enclosure. Wall-mount brackets are included with this kit for easy car cabin or trunk installation.
The M350 enclosure also features a unique hideaway compartment which houses a special power switch and 2 x USB inputs in a unique layout. The power switch has two functions not found on other enclosures: (1) Switch disable with jumper (to prevent accidental or unwanted power-offs) and (2) Auto power-on after power failure (for ALWAYS ON status) with jumper. The layout of the USB inputs allows you to "hide" 2 USB devices (such as Wi-Fi adapters or Flash drives for booting) behind the front panel.

Car PC Connections
Use the VGA output for an analog connection (use a VGA to composite adpater for your composite video display device [RCA]) or you can alternatively use the HDMI or DVI outputs for digital image output.
If you have an audio receiver with AUX-IN you may use the rear 3.5mm audio jack and a standard stereo audio cable and make the connection for audio in that matter (just like plugging in an iPOD or other MP3 Player). Also, if you are using a subwoofer and external amps and would like to protect your speakers from the "thump" which comes when the Car PC is turned on from an off position, you can utilize the anti-thump function on the M3-ATX power supply to protect your audio equipment.
With the built-in Wi-Fi adapter, you can easily connect to a wireless network without any need for additional adapters. The built-in Wi-Fi adapter supports 802.11b/g/n technologies (up to 144Mbps).
