ECS’s First Intel Multicore SoC Family

The energy-efficient mini-ITX motherboard line features integrated Bay Trail processors.

Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) has revealed its latest mini-ITX motherboard line, BAT-I, featuring the new Intel System-on-a-Chip (SoC) processor family, formerly code named “Bay Trail.”

Based on the new low-power consumption microarchitecture “Silvermont,” ECS BAT-I is suited for small-form-factor PCs and AIO systems, with a maximum power consumption of 10W and a fanless heatsink design. Three SKUs are available: Intel Pentium J2850, Intel Celeron J1850, and Intel Celeron J1750. ECS BAT-I also has electrostatic discharge protection (ESD) and 100 percent solid capacitors around the CPU and memory in order to maximize reliability and longevity.

BAT-I has one Mini PCI Express Gen. 2 x1 slot for wireless cards and TV tuner cards, one USB 3.0 port, and two 3GB/s SATA connections. For industrial applications, BAT-I is equipped with two serial port (COM) headers. Moreover, BAT-I supports 1080p HD and Blu-Ray playback through HDMI and VGA ports. Bundled software includes Norton Antivirus, Muzee, Cyberlink Media Suite, and ECS iEZ Utility, which combines eBLU BIOS Live Update, eDLU Drivers Live Update, and eSF Smart Fan.

ECS BAT-I has the official Windows 8 WHCK (Windows Hardware Certification Kit), which allows users to take advantage of the touch-oriented design of Windows 8. Moreover, ECS BIOS and drivers are specially designed for Windows 8.
