A new Nano-ITX embedded system board is based on the latest Intel Celeron and Pentium processor N3000 product families (4W~10W), formerly codenamed Braswell. The NANO-6061 from American Portwell is an extremely low-power, high-performance single board computer (SBC) with embedded qualities. It is a computer board, designed in the popular Nano-ITX form factor measuring 120mm x 120mm. It is predestined for 24/7 operation, and supports industrial features as well as a guaranteed long-term availability of at least 7 years.

The flat design—measuring 27mm in height with I/O shield—allows space-saving installation in display and panel PCs, making the realization of digital signage and control solutions for industry and business applications a quick and easy task. And the Portwell NANO-6061-based systems are ideal for passively cooled and hermetically sealed systems that can be used in various environments. The powerful integrated graphics eliminates any need to compromise on ease-of-use, something that is particularly important for POS (Point of Sales) and retail applications, such as kiosk systems. Three independent displays, VGA, LVDS, and DisplayPort with high resolutions make it possible to realize sophisticated user interfaces, such as touch solutions.

The NANO-6061 is based on the Intel Celeron and Pentium processor N3000 series (codenamed Braswell), and its one DDR3L 1333/1600 MT/s SODIMM socket can be equipped with up to 8GB of onboard DDR3L memory. It also integrates Intel Gen8 graphics supporting DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 1.2 plus high-performance, flexible hardware decoding to decode multiple high-resolution full HD videos in parallel. In addition, it supports up to 3840 x 2160 pixels with DisplayPort and 2560 x 1600 pixels with VGA, and 2x24-bit LVDS up to 1920 x 1200 pixels, and is designed with the flexibility for connecting up to three independent display interfaces.

Two USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports support ensures fast data transmission with low-power consumption. And one additional USB 2.0 port is made available. Two 5 Gb/s PCI Express 2.0 lanes can be used as 1x half-size mPCIe (shared with PCIe x1) and 1x M.2 slot. Three SATA 3.0 interfaces with up to 6 Gb/s (one of them also available as mSATA and two ports for M.2) allow quick and flexible system expansions. And Intel I211AT Gigabit Ethernet controller provides dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN access via the two RJ45 ports.
