AXIOMTEK's Ultra Low Power Intel® Atom™ ETX 3.x SoM, the ETM831, Offers Well-balanced in Power Consumption, Performance, Scalability and Pricing

High-performance yet low-power ETM831 with highly standardized interfaces and scalability offers customers the advantages of reducing development cost and short time to market

Taipei, Taiwan, December 23, 2009- AXIOMTEK today introduced the ETM831, Intel® Atom ETX 3.x compliant system-on-a-module with superior performance-per-watt advantages for various multimedia devices.  Within a compact 4.5” x 3.7” (114 x 95mm) footprint, the ETM831 integrates a high-performance, low-power 1.6GHz Intel® Atom processor N270 with Intel® 945GSE and ICH7M chipsets.  The ETM831 supports up to 2GB of high-speed DDR2 system DRAM on a single SODIMM.  The Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express chipset integrates an Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 that provides CRT and single/dual channel 18/24-bit LVDS.  The low-power module is ideal for communication, medical, factory automation, transportation, and surveillance applications.

This great standard ETX 3.x compliant system-on-a-module adopts the low power Intel® Atom processor N270, a perfect embedded solution offering well-balanced in power consumption, performance, scalability and pricing," said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Platforms Business Unit.  “The four PCI and one 16-bit ISA expansion buses on its ETX 3.x-compliant interface maximize the flexibility of system development.  Multiple displays are supported by a LVDS interface and VGA port interface. Plugged into an application-specific system baseboard, the ETM831 with highly standardized interfaces and scalability offers customers the advantages of reducing development cost and short time to market.”

Measuring 114 x 95 mm, the compact ETM831 embedded platform comes with advanced connectivity and expansion interfaces including two SATA, four USB 2.0, one Fast Ethernet, VGA, 18/24-bit LVDS, AC’97/HD audio, PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, 2 UARTs ports, FDD/LPT port, and IrDA interface (optional).  A watchdog timer is included to keep system running smoothly.  Moreover, the ETM831 supports Windows® 7, Windows® Vista, Windows® XP, Windows® Embedded Standard, Windows® XPe, Windows® CE, Linux as well as QNX.

The RoHS compliant product will be available around the end of February, 2010.  For more product information, please visit our global website www.axiomtek.com or contact our sales representative at info@axiomtek.com.tw.
