Axiomtek's Ultra Low Power Intel® Atom™ STX SoM, the STX88831, Meets Customized Demands and Time-to-Market

High-performance yet low-power STX88831 with highly standardized interfaces and scalability offers customers the advantages of reducing development cost and short time to market

Taipei, Taiwan, January 14, 2010- Axiomtek’s new STX88831 STX SoM integrates a high-performance, low-power 1.6GHz Intel® Atom™ processor N270 with Intel® 945GSE and ICH7M chipsets, delivering best performance-per-watt for communication, healthcare, automation, and transportation applications.  The Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express chipset integrates an Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 that delivers powerful graphics performance with dual-view displays: VGA and LVDS/TTL interfaces.  The STX module supports up to 2GB of high-speed DDR2 system DRAM on a single SODIMM.  The low-power STX88831 with a suitable baseboard is an optimized solution for embedded applications with various customized demands, which standard SBC cannot satisfy and also features a low total cost of ownership.

This great standard Intel® Atom™ processor N270 STX SoM, a cost-effective and highly scalable embedded solution, offers our customer fast time-to-market with reduced development cost," said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Board and Technology Business Unit.  “The four PCI and one 16-bit ISA expansion buses on its STX-compliant interface maximize the flexibility of system development.  Multiple displays are supported by a LVDS/TTL interface and VGA port interface.  This solution is highly beneficial for any application that requires the need for expansion and graphics-oriented."

The STX88831 also features rich I/O interfaces, including one SATA, four USB 2.0, one Fast Ethernet, VGA, 18/24-bit LVDS, 24-bit TTL LCD, AC-link audio, PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, 2 UARTs ports, FDD, LPT port, and IrDA interface (optional).  Moreover, the STX module 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 December.  For more product information, please visit our global website www.axiomtek.com or contact our sales representative at info@axiomtek.com.tw.
