Sunnyvale, California. – IBASE Technology Inc. (TASDAQ: 8050), a leading manufacturer of industrial motherboards and embedded systems, has once again excelled in the iF product design award 2013 competition for its SI-38 digital signage system, after winning the 2012 Computex Taipei d&i Gold Award and Industrial Innovation Achievement Award.
For 60 years, the iF product design award has been an internationally recognized label for award-winning design and the iF brand has become a symbol for outstanding achievements in design. Out of 3,011 entries, the award-winning SI-38 is an ultra slim embedded system designed specifically for digital signage applications. Powered by an APU with discrete-class graphics and multiple display outputs, the system has a 26mm-thick chassis that is nevertheless slender enough to disappear into the tightest spaces behind displays. It is built around a die-cast aluminum thermal frame that serves simultaneously as the entire system’s structural backbone, thermal conduit, airflow divider, HDD rail, EMI shield and mounting bracket. To ensure long-term reliability with a minimum acoustic footprint, the cooling airflow is segregated from the electronics to keep contaminants out.
“Our commitment to excellence led us to design the SI-38 not only with a refined appearance but, functionality-wise, also with superior processing and graphics performance that meet our customers’ demands,” says C. S. Lin, President of IBASE Technology Inc.
The SI-38 is capable of decoding multiple H.264, WMV9, MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 video streams totally in the graphics subsystem, freeing the CPU cores for other tasks. It supports iSMART, IBASE’s green technology with EuP/Erp power saving, auto power on/off scheduler and power resume functions. The unit offers unmatched flexibility in peripheral, network and display connectivity. USB 3.0, RS-232, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G-Wireless interfaces are available. The SI-38 has been tested and certified by world-class digital signage software companies including SCALA, Omnivex, DISE, Stinova and YCD.
