J&W MINIX D2550-HD: fanless ITX motherboard with DC in

J & W is expanding its Intel Cedar Trail motherboards with the little D2550-HD.


A model with a D2550/GMA 3650 HD couple, which features a fanless heatsink, but also a DC-IN connector.

The kind of ideal motherboard for a case like the Xilence Interceptor Pro or behind the TV set, with just enough connectors: one VGA, one HDMI, two P/S2, four USB 2.0 ports, two SuperSpeed, and 5.1 sound via a ALC662 chipset.  Two 1GB Ethernet are also present, as well as LVDS on the PCB.  For storage, two SATA 3Gbps ports (plus Molex for power), which is more than enough for the office, small server or HTPC.
