COM Express modules

17 March 2010 Computer/Embedded Technology

Kontron’s COM Express computer-on-modules family ETXexpress now includes three new Kontron ETXexpress-PC SKUs, adding support for the Mobile Intel GM45 Express and Mobile Intel GL40 Express chipsets.

Equipped with the GM45 Express chipset and Intel Core2 Duo T9400 processor, this new version of the ETXexpress-PC brings advanced processing power to Kontron’s COM Express basic form factor offering. Kontron’s COM Express module equipped with the Core2 Duo P8400 processor pairs processing power with cost efficiency. The third new ETXexpress-PC module SKU, based on the GL40 Express chipset and 2,0 GHz Celeron M Processor M575, is suited for very cost-sensitive applications. All three modules feature Kontron’s new highly-efficient power-off S5 Eco state, which replaces the conventional S5 mode to reduce the module’s power consumption to less than 1 mA.

In the infotainment market, these ETXexpress-PC modules are well suited for POS/POI, electronic billboards, interactive kiosks and self-service terminals. Extensive video and graphics capabilities also make them suitable for the gaming, entertainment and hospitality markets where high-definition, media-rich platforms are essential. These same graphics capabilities make them well-suited for realtime X-ray imaging and ultrasound devices in the medical sector. Industrial markets such as RF testing, sound/vibration analysis, automatic optical inspection, automation, high-end programmable logic controllers (PLCs), human machine interfaces (HMIs) and panel PCs also benefit from COM Express modules. In the military market, COMs drive applications such as training simulators, unmanned vehicles, and portable tactical communications (C4) devices.

Kontron’s ETXexpress-PC computer-on-modules offer support for up to 8 GB DDR3 system memory and provide an extensive range of I/Os via the COM Express pin-out type 2 connector: one x PCI Express Graphics (PEG), five x PCI Express x1, four x Serial ATA with RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 functionality, one x PATA, and eight x USB 2.0 ports along with Gigabit Ethernet and Intel high definition audio. Via the multiplexed PEG pinout, dual SDVO delivers additional video signals for HDMI and DisplayPort monitor outputs. There is also continued support for non-PCI Express legacy components such as plug-in cards via the PCI 2.1 interface. The integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) makes the ETXexpress-PC suitable for data sensitive applications. The 8,5 V–18 V wide range power for simplified power distribution rounds off the feature set.
