Thin mini-ITX Desktop Boards based on the Intel® 7-Series Chipset support 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7, Intel® Core™ i5 processors and other Intel® processors with a 65 Watt TDP in the LGA1155 package. The visibly smart Intel® Core™ processor family provides incredible performance and stunning visuals delivered by a range of Intel® technologies. Enjoy brilliant imagery and a seamless computing experience—whether you’re creating, sharing, exploring, or gaming.
mSATA is available on many thin mini-ITX Desktop Boards. It is generally implemented as a low profile, full-size Mini PCI Express* connector that supports mSATA Solid State Drives. An Intel mSATA Solid State Drive offers similar performance to a 2.5" Intel Solid-State Drive(SSD) but in an eighth of the size. This compact mSATA footprint can be used to enable single or dual drive storage in compact systems.
Many thin mini-ITX Desktop boards support a combination of full size PCI-Express* mini-card and half-size PCI-Express* mini-card connectors. The mini-card connectors are ideal for support of mSATA solid state drives, WiFi and third party TV Tuner modules. Intel® mSATA Solid-State Drive modules and Intel® WiFi Adapters can provide an excellent combination of system, responsiveness, dependability and high speed wireless connectivity.
Thin Mini-ITX Desktop Boards may support a local flat panel display via onboard LVDS connectivity that can enable a wide range of display panels for maximum flexibility when defining All-in-One system configurations. Embedded Display Port* (EDP) is one of the latest digital video standards and is intended to replace older standards such as DVI and VGA. This can enable compact PC designs that support Digital Signage and other high resolution digital displays.

Thin mini-ITX desktop boards that implement Intel® 6 or 7-Series Chipset that support Intel 3rd Generation Core Processors provide an exceptional computing experience in home and business environments. This in part is enabled by support for DDR3 1600/1333/1066 MHz DIMMs and up to 16GB system memory depending on the specific desktop board implementation.
A thin mini-ITX board has the same PCB size as a regular mini-ITX board (170 x 170mm) but with approximately half the height of the standard IO shield. This enables a low-profile board that is suitable works well for All-In-One PCs and other form factors that can take advantage of a low-profile board like a thin media PC, a VESA-mounted PC, or other vertical usages digital signage and industrial applications. Review the thin mini-ITX ecosystem catalogue for more information.
