Aaron from Shuttle was kind enough to send us along some pictures of their upcoming Car PC which they are showcasing on their virtual CeBIT website. It measures just 279(D) x 230(W) x 70(H)mm.
The "CarPC", an integrated device with a special designed power supply and thermo technology, features Shuttle's cross field design. Using car power supply, the system will auto shutdown after turning off the ignition key without losing data or system crash. Also, Shuttle's exclusive "fin flake chassis" radiate heat effectively. CarPC is not only for car use but also for difficult environments.
The interesting thing is that the CAR PC will be powered by your vehicles battery (11.2 - 32 volts). When you turn off your vehicle, the system will shut down properly without just powering off and hence save you from losing any data.
It will be based around the Intel 945GM and ICH7M chipsets and using mobile parts such as Intel's Core Duo T2400, notebook hard drive and SO-DIMM notebook memory. For onboard video it uses the Intel GMA950 and sound is provided by 7.1 High Definition also from Intel.
