ADLINK Technology has released the newest member of its Computer on Module (COM) family. Based on the latest dual-core 32nm process Intel Atom and NM10 Express Chipset, the ETX-CV is aimed at replacing current entry level and older high performance ETX modules (up to Intel Core Duo Processor L2400). Power consumption ranges between 6W and 12W and is much lower than that of previous generation products, stated the company.

The ETX-CV is positioned as an entry level ETX module for generic system but also for system that that require a full set of graphics features. The module comes with integrated support for high VGA up to 1920 x 1200 resolution (WUXGA), single/dual channel 18/24bit LVDS and onboard DisplayPort connector. The ETX-CV conforms to the latest ETX 3.02 specification and provides two additional onboard SATA connectors while maintaining full backward compatibility with earlier ETX standards. Operating system support includes Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded, Windows 7, WinCE and Linux. Primary focus is for applications in medical diagnostics and imaging, gaming, industrial automation, test and measurement, POS and industrial control.

The dual-core Intel Atom processor N2000 and D2000 Series on the ETX-CV replaces the previous generation Intel Atom processors N4xx/N5xx. Although much smaller in size, Intel Atom processors share the same architecture as Intel Core2 Duo processors and additionally support Hyper Threading Technology, allowing more than one code thread to be executed at the same time on a single core. The ETX-CV's thermal design and powerful CPU core allow it to provide the same or even better performance than earlier generation modules at more modest power consumption, boasted ADLINK.


ADLINK Technology's ETX-CV.

The ETX-CV supports up to 4GB of DDR3 memory on a single SODIMM, incorporates an Intel based 10/100BASE-T Ethernet port, and provides dual channel IDE, two channels SATA, four USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, one parallel port shared with floppy, one PS/2 keyboard/mouse interface and HD audio. The ETX-CV fully supports PCI and legacy ISA based on high speed PCI/ISA bridge and is equipped with an AMI Aptio BIOS supporting embedded features such as Remote Console, CMOS backup for battery-less operation, CPU and System Monitoring and Watchdog Timer.

Starter kits with fully assembled system, cabling and software or reference carrier boards in ATX form factor are available.

ADLINK provides schematics, mechanical files, design guides, BSP's, I2C libraries, R&D support, product review service and BIOS customization for companies that are doing their own carrier board design. ADLINK also offers full development and/or production services for those who wish to outsource their carrier board/system design and/or manufacturing.
