Adlink Technology Inc. introduces the Express-AT, the newest member of its Computer-on-Module (COM) family. The Express-AT's design, measuring just 125mm x 95mm, is fully COM Express type 2 compatible. COM Express modules are highly integrated off-the-shelf building blocks based on PCIe bus architecture that plug into custom-made, application-specific carrier boards.

According to Adlink, the Express-AT is positioned as an entry level COM Express module for systems that require a full set of graphics features. The module comes with integrated support for high resolution CRT, single/dual channel LVDS and TV out (SDTV and HDTV). In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, the chipset's SDVO bus can be used to connect to DVI, TMDS or additional LVDS device controllers by extension to a custom designed carrier. Primary focuses for applications areas are medical diagnostics and medical imaging, gaming, industrial automation, test and measurement, video preprocessing and industrial control.

The Express-AT supports up to 2Gbyte of DDR2 667MHz memory on a single SODIMM socket. The Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset integrates an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, the SDVO bus can connect to DVI, TMDS or TV-out device controllers. The board also allows connection of up to three additional PCIe x1 devices on the Intel I/O Controller Hub 7-M (ICH7-M) Southbridge.

The module comes with a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port and two SATA ports. It has legacy support for a single Parallel IDE channel, 32-bit PCI and LPC. The Express-AT comes equipped with an AMIBIOS8 supporting embedded features such as remote console, CMOS backup, CPU and system monitoring and a dual watchdog timer for NMI or RESET.
