The Procelerant(tm) CE945GM2A, from RadiSys Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), is a new COM Express module for value-priced industrial automation, gaming, and test & measurement applications. The Procelerant CE945GM2A replaces older ETX technology at a comparable price point, enabling high-speed serial interface options such as PCI Express, Serial ATA (SATA), and gigabit ethernet.
Based on the value-priced Intel Celeron M processor 440, the Procelerant CE945GM2A allows customers to achieve higher processor performance at a value entry point using the COM Express modular form factor. The product can be combined with a RadiSys-designed low-profile active heat sink with an embedded fan allowing the module to be used in 1U platforms. The module and heat sink combination enable rapid design-in by removing the need for the customer to create a heat sink solution that can effectively cool a 1U system.
RadiSys Procelerant(tm) COM Express modules are designed for embedded applications that require a standard processor and memory subsystem, but also modular flexibility to retain key design level IP on a separate carrier board. Procelerant COM Express products are based on COM Express®, a computer-on module standard that provides a bridge from legacy interfaces such as PCI and IDE to new serial differential signaling technologies such as PCI Express, Serial ATA, USB 2.0, LVDS, and Serial DVO.
RadiSys COM Express products help equipment manufacturers shorten their time to market and reduce development costs. By removing the processor, chipset, and memory from the rest of the design, manufacturers can focus engineering resources on developing differentiating features and avoid the design churn that comes with implementing new processor generations.
