Avalue has introduced a line of Mini-ITX motherboards designed to serve the varied purposes of digital signage systems. According to the company, these +12V DC input supported motherboards were created with large screens, high definition effects and multi-functional manageability in mind.

Avalue’s fanless digital signage motherboard, ACP-945GDS, is powered by an Intel Atom N270 low voltage processor; its counterpart, the ACP-GM45DS, is a smart-fan-controlled motherboard powered by an Intel Core 2 Due mobile processor. Both come with built-in SODIMM sockets, supporting 2GB~4GB DDR2 SDRAM, according to the Taipei, Taiwan, company.
