Transmeta showcases fanless technology for Media Center
Transmeta Corporation is showing its new fanless Media Center sample design to the public attending the Microsoft WinHEC 2005 in Seattle (25-27 April). The design, which showcases Transmeta's technology and engineering services with a fully functional reference system, allows manufacturers and Transmeta to create and customize quiet Media Centers for the living room entertainment experience.

The design allows computer system manufacturers to develop a low power Media Center design without the need for noisy cooling fans or expensive sound isolation, providing consumers with a quieter and cost effective entertainment experience. The platform is completely compatible with Microsoft Media Center Edition 2005, and features a high performance graphics controller from ATI Technologies Inc, compatible with Microsoft DX9.

The board is a compact 6-layer Mini-ITX form factor motherboard, measuring 170mm x 170mm, including the microprocessor, on-board video/graphics, consumer electronics video and audio interfaces, Ethernet, USB 2.0, FireWire and IDE interfaces.

The Efficeon microprocessor supports Transmeta's AntiVirusNX Technology, and works in conjunction with Microsoft's Windows XP Service Pack 2 to offer enhanced security and safer computing by detecting and disabling common forms of computer viruses and worms. Transmeta says this capability is particularly important for media center PC's, where users expect the reliability of traditional consumer electronics, on a computing platform.
