These motherboards, which also support dual display capability for LVDS, DVI and VGA, are powered by the newest Intel Atom processors which are built on 45nm process technology. The graphics and memory controller are both integrated onto the same chip, enabling more space-efficient solutions.

The Thermal Design Power (TDP) rating of the Intel Atom N455 single-core architecture is only 6.5 watts, while the dual-core processor is only 13 watts, enabling further power reductions, smaller systems and performance improvements. It utilizes the Intel ICH8M chipset, and supports system memory up to either 2 GB or 4 GB of DDR3 800 SDRAM, (depending on processor).

It also comes with plenty of connectivity and expansion options; CompactFlash, PCI bus, six COM ports, eight USB ports, 8-bit GPIO, optional TPM security feature, and Mini-PCIe expansion slots enable easy integration, while a dual Intel chipset, 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet port is also available to deliver high speed networking. All this connectivity is packed into a space-saving, power-efficient, and cost-effective Mini-ITX form factor.

With integrated, embedded Intel Gen3.5+ graphics core and 200/400-MHz render clock frequencies for the N455/D525, it offers integrated 3D graphics and video capabilities with up to 224 MB of shared graphics memory, and supports dual display with multiple display types such as VGA + LVDS or VGA + DVI. Video output is complemented by HD audio for a complete audio/visual solution.
