DSM Computer has expanded its 96M1574 19-inch industrial computer family from the Infinity series with a very high-performance variant based on the compact 96M4296o industrial slot CPU with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The robust IPC is installed in a solid, high-quality 4 U housing suitable for installation in 19-inch cabinets. The Infinity 96M1574 system provides a total of 14 slots for eight long and six short plug-in cards. This means, in addition to the Slot CPU, depending on the associated backplane, optionally up to 12 PCI slots or a maximum of eight ISA slots are accessible. Furthermore, the 19-inch IPC provides four 5.25-inch drive bays and one 3.5-inch bay. As an option, a RAID SATA removable frame, for example, for three drives, can be integrated. The drive cage is protected against vibration.

The highlight of the modular 19-inch computer is DSM Computer’s new Slot CPU 96M9296o, that conforms to the proven but still very popular PICMG 1.0 Standard. The module is DSM’s currently highest-performance mobile platform in this form factor. The compact CPU card is equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo (Penryn) processor with 667/800/1066 MHz front side bus or an Intel Celeron processor. The Slot CPU integrates the Intel GM45/ICH9M chipset with the Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD. The main memory can be expanded with two DDR3 SO-DIMM memory modules to provide a maximum capacity of 8 GB.

A Mini PCI Express card and the internal Compact Flash socket allow the module to be expanded independent of the backplane. On request, two Mini PCI Express cards can also be integrated.

The available interfaces include not only two two Gigabit Ethernet outputs but also eight USB 2.0 ports (each of which has a port on the front side and on the rear side of the 19-inch system), GPIO, serial and parallel interfaces, HD Audio and IDE. VGA is provided as graphic interface with DVI available as option.

A 12-cm fan located behind a replaceable dust filter is provided to cool the computer system. The low power consumption of the Mobile platform based on the Slot CPU means the Infinity  96M1574 is specified for a maximum ambient temperature of 45° C and, on request and depending on the configuration, even as high as 50° C.
