1/14/2005 - ETX-P3T, Kontron's latest addition to the ETX family of Computer-On-Module (COM) products, is equipped with ULV/LV Intel® Celeron® processors, which boast scalable performance from 400 MHz all the way to 1 GHz and extremely low power consumption. The ETX-P3T module is completely Intel-based and uses the i815 and ICH4 chipsets. The 4 USB 2.0 interfaces enable communication with periphery devices at speeds of up to 40 times greater than USB 1.1. These characteristics and an attractive price make the ETX-P3T an outstanding COM solution.
Apart from supplying the currently much-coveted USB 2.0 interfaces, the baseboard on the new ETX-P3T module provides 10/100 Base-T Ethernet and 2 serial TTL ports. Keyboard, mouse, floppy disk and parallel port pin-outs are also included. Application-specific variable interfaces are implemented on the PCI bus. The SDRAM provides up to 512 MB. Rounding out the ETX-3PT feature set are an onboard graphics chip with up to 32 MB of UMA memory and the integrated VIA® VT1612A AC97 sound card.
Besides possessing these excellent performance characteristics, the ETX-P3T module and all of Kontron's other ETX modules have a unique cooling concept; the heat spreader thermally couples the ETX module to the system in the same way for every configuration, hence eliminating the need for mechanical redesign when the module is changed. This makes ETX the only COM of its type that offers truly unrestricted scalability without the need for mechanical modifications. Kontron's ETX modules are optionally available with VIA®, STPC Elite, Geode® and Intel® Pentium® processors, enabling freely scalable performance upgrades.
COMs such as ETX modules are employed in customized embedded systems, enabling a strong focus on core competencies and a rapid time-to-market as well as the further advantages of minimal design risk and unrestricted performance scalability.
