Compact Mini-Devices Offer Powerful Graphic Performance


Kontron’s new microETXexpress-DC computer-on-module (COM) offers a host of features coupled with superior graphic performance for the development of mini-devices. The energy-efficient Kontron microETXexpress-DC is equipped with the Intel® Atom™ processor N270 (1.6 GHz) with hyperthreading, Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express chipset, and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7-M as well as Kontron’s new S5 Eco State. With 3D graphic power and a dual independent display support via SVDO, LVDS, VGA, and TV-out, the COM is ideal for a wide range of embedded applications. Such applications include embedded netbooks as well as in-vehicle and solar-operated devices in market segments like medical equipment, test and measurement, maintenance, transportation, HMIs for the energy and automation sector, and kiosk and digital-signage solutions for POS/POI.

With its compact dimensions of 95 x 95 mm, the Kontron microETXexpress- DC computer-on-module is the youngest member of the compact COM Express-compatible class. Due to the fact that it is 100% compatible with the type 2 pin-out of the COM Express specification in regards to pin-out and connector positions (for which an official PICMG carrier-board design guide was recently published), it offers design security, scalability, and longterm availability.
