NORCO Motherboard Powers the Intelligent Terminal Network Shopping Platform


Interactive self-service terminals expand for the ease and the increasing demand of online shopping to the point where you don't even have to talk with the salesclerk to buy the goods or service you need. Especially in nowadays, network development has brought much convenience to people's community life. The community convenience store is becoming a necessity in almost every big cities and even in towns. With the increasing numbers of community convenience stores, the intelligent terminal network shopping platforms also start to appear in large or small communities. This kind of network shopping terminals with a touch screen, people can logon the e-stores for shopping, compare the prices and place the purchasing orders by only a click of the touch menu. The most favored feature is the multipurpose of the terminal network shopping platform. It can help handle a wide range of handy service for the public from online shopping ,mobile phone recharging, flower ordering to many other handy service.

System Solution:

At the moment, NORCO has partnered with Intel to offer a board solution that can power the intelligent Network Shopping Terminal Platform. This board comes with Intel latest 3rd generation Core Processor Family, powered by Intel 2nd and 3rd GEN Socket G2 Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge i7/i5/i3 CPU and Intel QM67/QM77 based. Features with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Rapid Storage Technology, board with the new Core platforms brings up to 15% improvement in performance while offering new levels of protection for data sensitive applications. Also, optimized with Intel® Active Management Technology 8.0 and Intel® vPro technology, the Gigabit Ethernet port supports Wake-on-LAN capabilities reducing costs by both allowing remote monitoring and management. Onboard 2x DDR3 1066/1333/1600MHz SO-DIMM slots support system RAM up to 8GB. rich I/O and comes with a high connectivity and expansion options. 4x hot-swap SATAII, SATA1/2(SATA3.0); SATA3/4(SATA2.0), RAID 0/1/5 support; VGA,DVI-D,HDMI,LVDS video out, dual independent display; 6x COM, 8x USB2.0, 7.1CH HD audio, 2x Gigabit LAN; 1xPCIe x4 , x16 connecting finger and 2x Mini PCIe for rich expansion( 3G module), enabling powerful connectivity and easy integration.

System Advantages:

Board offers multiple display options including VGA,DVI-D,HDMI,LVDS video out for dual independent display support. The video output is complemented by three audio jacks for a complete audio/visual solution. The standard 170mm x170mm form factor motherboard support rich I/O and comes with a high connectivity and expansion options two Mini PCI Express expansion slots with one supporting 3G/WiFi/SSD (optional), enabling easy integration. Two Gigabit Ethernet ports are also available for high speed networking and 2x Mini PCIe for 3G module and SSD. All this connectivity is packed into a space-saving, power-efficient, and cost-effective Mini-ITX motherboard, providing more flexible peripheral expansion options, creating an ideal hardware platform for network shopping terminals. Parternering with a high performance CPU, this board is compatible perfectly with system software, external devices such as touch screen, card reader, keyboard, printer, speaker, etc. Its rich connectivity and I/O interfaces secure the reliable connection with all kinds of external output devices, securing flexible inventory management, recording sales data, thus sending all information to all outlets' control server for financial management, just-in-time delivery and continuous replenishment.
