Dual-core COM Express board
21 March 2012, Computer/Embedded Technology

Kontron announced what it claims is the world’s first COM Express mini computer-on-module with dual-core processing power. The COMe-mCT10, the latest addition to the family of formerly named nanoETXexpress modules, is based on next-generation Intel Atom processors N2600, N2800 and D2700.

The always-on, always-connected capabilities of the latest Intel Atom generation mean the COMe-mCT10 is also applicable for retail point-of-sale systems that boot up instantly to serve customers at a moment’s notice. Full 1080p high-definition video support at low CPU utilisation, combined with the platform’s enhanced power management features, make it ideal for deployment in sophisticated yet energy-efficient digital signage systems.

The platform’s enhanced power management features include Intel Deeper Sleep and Intel SpeedStep technology and enable thinner and lighter low power designs such as robust mini handheld terminals that benefit from 20% improved battery life compared to the previous generation. Intel Smart Connect technology enables sophisticated usage scenarios where an instant Internet connection is available as soon as a device is (re)activated and also allows for constant updates even while in standby. Furthermore, Intel Rapid Start technology enables fast resume from standby mode and helps to conserve battery life.

The new COMe-mCT10 computer-on-modules are equipped with two x 1,6 GHz, two x 1,86 GHz or two x 2,13 GHz Intel Atom processors (N2600, N2800 and D2700) as well as the Intel NM10 Express chipset and up to 2 GB of fast onboard DDR3 800/1600 system memory. The integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600/3650, combined with the integrated memory controller, provides enhanced performance and system responsiveness with twofold graphics performance compared to the previous generation platform.

A dedicated media engine enables full 1080p high-definition playback of videos and BluRay. The COM Express Type 10 pin-out complete with two serial interfaces results in the board supporting two independent digital displays with either one x LVDS 18-bit 1366x768 @ 112 MHz (N2600/2800) or one x LVDS 24-bit 1440x900 @ 112 MHz (D2700) and one x DisplayPort.

The module also offers two different options for data storage: either two x SATA II 300 MBps interfaces or versions with soldered-on SATA Flash memory (up to 8 GB SLC- or 32 GB MLC-Flash) and one x SATA II 300 MBps. Further interfaces include eight x USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, plus three x PCI-Express x1 lanes for custom extensions.

The COMe-mCT10 supports a wide range of operating systems including Wind River VxWorks 6.8, Linux, Windows XP, XPe, WEC 7 and WES 7 where Windows 8 support is planned.
