CompactPCI board supports DisplayPort

31 March 2010 Computer/Embedded Technology

The new Kontron CP308 3U CompactPCI multicore board with the CP308-MEDIA extension card features the HD digital display interface standard DisplayPort. With S/P-DIF-out audio and the stereo audio ports for line-in, line-out and microphone, the processor board brings extensive multimedia capabilities to embedded computing.

The CP308 features the Intel Core 2 Duo processor up to 2,26 GHz, the most powerful embedded Intel GS45 graphics and memory controller hub, up to 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, and the Intel I/O controller hub ICH9M. With its computing and multimedia performance, it is well suited for applications such as digital signage, passenger information and entertainment, process and quality control, surveillance and security in the transportation, aerospace, military and industrial automation markets.

The CP308-MEDIA features two DisplayPort interfaces on the front for direct-drive, end-to-end communication between the board and different panels. Compared to DVI or LVDS, DisplayPort reduces cabling, connector footprint and minimises the need for additional monitor electronics for panel control. Furthermore, the latching DisplayPort connector guarantees mechanical stability. With conventional adapters, DisplayPort also connects to HDMI, DVI or VGA monitors.

The optical S/P-DIF-out transmits digital Intel HD audio. Analog audio signals are transmitted via the stereo audio ports for line-in, line-out and microphone. Onboard, the Kontron CP308-MEDIA features connectors for COM, SATA, an SD/SDHC socket, a CompactFlash socket and a Mini PCI Express socket. The CPU board can be further extended via an additional Mini PCI Express device like WLAN, GPRS, network or SSD.

The CP308-MEDIA runs with Linux, Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or XP embedded, as well as Windows 7.
