The Kontron microETXexpress-SP Computer-on-Module is designed to extend the COM Express™ specification to include a small module format (95 x 95 mm) with the commonly used COM Express™ Type 2 connector.
This will enable the development of energy-saving, high-end graphics devices based on the Intel® Atom™ processor (up to 1.6GHz) and the Intel® System Controller Hub US15W without having to stray from the secure development path of utilizing an established and future-proof industry standard.
The Kontron microETXexpress-SP offers PCI as well as more sophisticated graphics support with SDVO. Via the PEG pinout, SDVO delivers additional video signals for VGA and DVI monitor outputs, SDTV and HDTV television outputs and TV tuner inputs that greatly simplify system graphics design.
This special feature makes this 95 x 95 mm Computer-on-Module ideal for small mobile and extremely energy-efficient multimedia devices as well as for mobile test and measurement applications. Other standard features of the microETXexpress-SP include: Gigabit Ethernet, Serial ATA, single-channel LVDS and USB 2.0.
All Kontron microETXexpress family modules are compatible with the COM Express™ standard allowing for easy interchangeability and ensuring design scaleability and future migration paths.
