InHand Atom motherboard consumes just 4.5W

Posted on Friday, August 14 2009 @ 01:10:36 CEST by

InHand has introduced a low-power Atom-based single board computer (SBC) that consumes only 4.5W:
InHand Electronics, a low-power embedded solutions provider for OEMs of wireless and handheld devices, has released the latest version of their Intel Atom-based full-function single board computer (SBC), FireFly. The revision has produced new, lower power numbers which are now approximately 4.5 Watts running (S0) and 500mW in sleep state (S3). With the new low power numbers and compact dimensions, InHand has created the smallest and most power efficient full-function Atom-based SBC – and the only full-function system with on-board DDR2 and expansion capabilities.

This news challenges competitor claims as the most power efficient Atom-based system. The competition’s 3W system module requires the additional power of a carrier board and power supplies to run and provide the same functionality as FireFly: As an off-the-shelf, full-function system, FireFly does not require any additional boards to operate. Fully optimized for performance and power as a stand-alone, or expanded system, FireFly is the smallest Atom-based SBC equipped with daughter card connectors for easy expandability.

“The performance and low power of FireFly far surpass anything we’ve seen on the Intel Atom system market thus far,” stated, Dan Rowland, VP of Marketing at InHand Electronics. “In our most recent tests, FireFly’s performance is comparable to that of the Dell Mini [Inspiron 1210], at a fraction of the power consumption. And with no need for time or money to create a daughter card for a full-function system, FireFly offers a quick and easy time-to-market without compromising power or performance!”
