|The leading designer and manufacturer of the All-in-One gaming computer, Acrosser launches a Gaming I/O solution for Mini-ITX motherboard.
Graphic intensive gaming applications such as video slot, poker and video lottery typically used an industrial PC platform to fulfill their hardware requirements due to long life availability. The Mini-ITX platform has also been a commonly used platform for gaming applications. Combining an I/O card with a Mini-ITX provides a level of flexibility and at times a lower cost. With this concept in mind, Acrosser has released a logic box gaming solution which integrates our ACE-B2019 gaming I/O card into an enclosure. This logic box solution is flexible because it can be used with any Mini-ITX motherboard.
In total, the ACE-MINI contains our ACE-B2019 PCI bus gaming I/O card, a power supply and an enclosure which is designed to carry any Mini-ITX motherboard. The core of this solution is its PCI bus gaming I/O control card. It provides 30 optical isolated digital inputs and 27 high current digital outputs, 512KB SRAM, 3 serial ports, intrusion logger and software protection. These features cover most of the necessary device control interfaces that are required in a gaming machine. The most valuable part of ACE-MINI is its free software development kit. The software development kit contains API, device drivers and a demo program to support Windows XP embedded and Linux operation systems.
The innovative design of ACE-MINI allows it to support most Mini-ITX motherboards. Acrosser also offers a low cost Atom N270 motherboard as an option for ACE-MINI series.
