ECS Introduces GLKD-I DC Powered Gemini Lake Motherboard Family

Except for the odd industrial motherboard, most Gemini Lake motherboards launched so far rely on an ATX connector and power supply, but if you prefer a DC powered Gemini Lake motherboard, ECS now provides several options thanks to their GLKD-I series mini-ITX motherboards equipped with Gemini Lake processor.

    • Line Out/Line In/Mic In jacks
    • Front panel MIC/Speaker out header
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet via Realtek RTL8111H, optional WiFi + Bluetooth via M.2 slot (CNVi supported)
  • USB – 4x USB3.0 ports up to 5Gb/s (either rear I/O or front header), 6x USB2.0 ports (2x back panel, 4x on-board)

  1. Sounds like a candidate for a kodi/NAS whatever box or maybe I better go with a pi 😛

  2. An Intel NUC NUC7CJYH with Celeron J4005, including power supply and housing, is 110 euro (incl VAT).
    So this ECS motherboard must be … 50 euro to be interesting?

    1. Since products like Syba’s SD-ADA40118 are available (M.2 card with a 4 port Marvell SATA controller attached via 2 PCIe lanes) you could build a fanless NAS with up to 6 disks by combining this board with an appropriate enclosure. Makes not that much sense of course. 🙂
