Mini-ITX boards may take your money
June 08, 2006
Those of you with a penchant for brightly coloured lights, unlimited buffets and 3/4 size historically inaccurate facsimiles of various parts of the world may already have been relieved from their loose change by a Mini-ITX powered gaming machine.
Arbor, Lanner and iBASE were all demonstrating solutions at Computex based upon Mini-ITX form factor motherboards targetted directly at casino owners. The 17 x 17cm boards make an ideal standard, fitted with industrial-grade components for high reliability and with long guaranteed lifespans. Boards powered by Intel Pentium, Intel Core and VIA C7 processors dominated the offerings available, with different chipsets and connectors giving manufacturers and customers many options in terms of cost and flexibility.
Anyone thinking of building their own gaming machine will probably need 3 major components - a PC system capable of providing high quality graphics and sound, often with a solid state memory option; a giant touch screen; and an interface module with ports to talk to your note validator, coin acceptor and hoppers, many lights and various alarms and sensors.
