PW-120: the smallest PSU for Mini ITX boards

Mini-box.com, a subsidiary of Ituner Networks, announced the "thinnest" Mini-ITX PSU, PW-120. According to the press release, without fans, the main source of noise, this PSU can be used in both home multimedia and medicine systems.

It seems the novelty was inspired by the success of VIA that promoted its VIA EPIA M 6000, EPIA M 9000, EPIA-M 10000, EPIA-1000 MII Mini-ITX systems. There are two modifications, PW-120-M and PW-200-V sized 61x57x30mm and 155x23x30mm, respectively. The unit will also support MS/SP solutions and boards for 3 GHz Pentium 4 — 12V DC-DC converter provides 200 W power (PW-200-V). According to the press release, PW-120 has 95% efficiency that enables to use it in server appliances as well.

As you can see, ATX connector is located onboard that reduces PC size even more.
