Intel® GM45 Small Form Factor Computer-on-Module for Graphics-Oriented Applications – CEM850

AXIOMTEK’s CEM850 speeds up time-to-market for custom-made applications, simplifying the future upgrade path and scalability and increasing the application lifecycle

Taipei, Taiwan, July 17, 2009- AXIOMTEK’s new CEM850 COM Express Type-II module is equipped with the new Mobile Intel® GM45 and ICH9M chipsets and supports 45nm Intel® Core 2 Duo and Celeron® M processors with FSB of 667/800/1066 MHz.  It supports two 204-pin dual-channel DDR3 SODIMM sockets with up to 8GB memory on a compact Computer-on-Module form factor that measures just 125 x 95 mm.  The CEM850 offers a PCIe x16, five PCIe x1, and four 32-bit PCI for system expansion.  Moreover, this COM module supports ITP which is the in-circuit testing port for direct communication with Intel® CPU for various applications and debugging purpose, which helps customer to be possible to use multiple CEM850 modules as a multi-processor application in one customized baseboard.  This embedded module is specially suited for the solutions such as digital signage, gaming and entertainment, security, retail and advertising, and multimedia.

Powered by the Mobile Intel® GM45 Express chipset with integrated Mobile Intel® GMA 4500MHD, the CEM850 offers excellent 3D graphics and CRT/LVDS, single or dual view configurations.  The PCIe x16 can be configured to support SDVOs, DVI ports, or DisplayPort interfaces.  High quality audio functionality is ensured via the Intel® High Definition Audio interface.  To satisfy increasing demands for data transfer speed, the CEM850 provides eight USB 2.0 ports and three serial ATA ports with transfer rates up to 3 GB/s.

The super compact CEM850 platform is based on single-core and dual-core processors from 45nm Intel’s low power Penryn generation and the Intel® GM45 graphics and memory controller hub (GMCH) combined with the Intel® ICH9M Enhanced IO controller hub.  Integrated with the baseboard, the CEM850 has the capability of eight USB 2.0 ports, HD Audio, three SATA, one Gigabit LAN, PCIe x16, five PCIe x1, and four PCI expansions.  This solution is highly beneficial for any application that requires the need for expansion.  Like all AXIOMTEK COM Express type-II modules, the CEM850 offers fast time-to-market with reduced development cost and significant freedom in meeting form-fit-function requirements,” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Business Unit.

The powerful platform runs under Windows® Vista, Windows® XP and Linux operating systems.  Other onboard I/O features include four-channel Digital I/O, one Gigabit LAN, I2C, LPC, SMBus, and PATA-100.  Moreover, the CEM850 has been designed to require only 12V DC single input.  The product is RoHS compliant and available now.  For more product information or more system on module products, please visit our global website www.axiomtek.com or contact our sales representative at info@axiomtek.com.tw.
