It's easy to forget the smaller motherboard makers and J&W is often forgotten until there's a tradeshow or something similar where the company is showing off its often rather unusual motherboards. This time around though, details of a pair of Atom D2x00 nano ITX motherboards has been revealed by the company and it looks like a really interesting solution for those wanting a super tiny computer.

The board models in question are the ITX-IC5N1010 and ITX-IC7N1011. Both boards measure a mere 120x120mm and sport a1.86GHz Atom D2500 and a 2.13GHz Atom D2700 respectively. Feature wise they're packed to the brim, at least in as much as you pack such a small board to the brim. At the rear we have a power connector, an HDMI port, a USB 2.0 port, a Gigabit Ethernet jack and a pair of audio jacks. Around the front is a card reader, a pair of USB 2.0 ports and the option for an IR receiver. There's also an optional 3G SIM card slot that both models can be equipped with.

Taking a closer look at the PCB itself, we find a lonely, single SATA 3Gbps connector, a combined mSATA/mini PCI Express, pin headers for a VGA port, a serial port, a PS/2 port, LVDS and a single USB 2.0 port. Flip the board over and there's a single SO-DIMM slot for DDR3 memory at the bottom of the board. No word on pricing and as this is an OEM only product; it's unlikely that we'll ever see it in the retail channel, which in our opinion is a real shame.
