Product image


The MS-C78 is an industrial MicroATX motherboard designed for the 4th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3/ Celeron/Pentium Desktop processors. The motherboard is based on the Intel Q87 Express Desktop Chipset which supports Intel 4th generation processors which are integrated with the HD Graphic 4600 (formerly known as “Haswell”, manufactured on 22nm processor technology). The MS-C78 platform provides excellent CPU, graphics, media performance, flexibility, enhanced security and ideally suited to applications requiring multi-tasking capabilities such as gaming, surveillance, medical, defense, transportation and industrial automation application.

The MS-C78 Industrial MicroATX motherboard is designed for the 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3/Celeron/Pentium Desktop Processors in the FCBGA1364 supporting four DDR3/DDR3L DIMM up to 32GB and running 1333/1600MHz No ECC function. The platform is based on Intel® HD Graphics 4600 that provides high-end media and graphics capabilities for devices that display videos, 2D / 3D graphics and interactive content. In addition, MS-C78 supports VGA, LVDS, DVI and one Display port to provide its advanced solutions for imaging, machine vision and digital signage applications.

The MS-C78 offers lots of features including high-speed data transfer interfaces such as 6 x USB3.0 and 4 x SATA3 supporting RAID 0/1/5/10 and equipped with dual Gigabit Ethernet with iAMT 9.0 support. The board comes with PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse port, 5 x RS232 and 1 x RS232/422/485, 6 x USB2.0, Intel® High Definition Audio, and two PCI slots, one PCI Express x16 & x4 slots, one PCIE Mini card & mini PCI socket.
