AAEON Unveils the Intel®AtomProcessor N270-Based COM Express CPU Module-COM-945GSE

Taipei Taiwan (November 28, 2008)—AAEON, a premier Industrial PC manufacturer, announces a brand new COM Express CPU module that adopts the Intell® Atom™ processor N270. With more and more demands for small, low-power embedded solutions, the debut of COM-945GSE not only meets the market trend, but also reveals the state-of-the-art technology of the Intell® Atom™ processor.

The COM-945GSE offers an onboard Intell® Atom™ processor N270 and system memory support DDR2 400/533 SO-DIMM, up to 2GB. This model features the Intel® 82945GSE Graphics Memory Controller Hub and the Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7-M (ICH7M) and the Intel® 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller for Gigabit Ethernet connection. Moreover, both parallel and serial ATA interfaces are featured, giving the user flexible storage options. The COM-945GSE deploys versatile expansion interfaces including three PCI-Express〔x1〕, option for five additional PCI-Express〔x1〕, four 32-bit PCI, as well as LPC, SMBus and I2C. The multitude of expansion interfaces allow system integrators to expand their embedded systems without purchasing extra devices to build up necessary functions.

“At less than 8W of power consumption, the COM-945GSE meets the demand for a low power fan-less solution. Combining the fast time to market of the COM Express module and the ability to tailor the design to meet very specific needs, the COM-945GSE proves to be a very cost effective solution. The COM-945GSE is designed to respond to new requirements and competitive forces effectively and efficiently. By utilizing AAEON’s rapid prototyping services, DTD (design to delivery), customers can go to market faster than ever before. Aaeon also offers standard feature carrier boards for proof of concept enabling your Software team to hit the ground running.“ said Peter Yang, Product Manager of AAEON’s Embedded Computing Division.

The COM-945GSE display capabilities include CRT/LCD, CRT/TV, LCD/TV simultaneous/ dual view displays. With the 18-bit dual-channel LVDS interface, support for a wide variety of LCD panels is available.

Targeting Medical, Test & Measurement, Military & Government and Security applications with demand for a multi-function, high performance platform, the COM-945GSE will be the number one choice for embedded systems. For more detailed product information, please visit www.aaeon.com.
