conga-CMEN COM Express Module with Intel Menlow

congatec AG recently introduced the conga-CMEN COM Express module, which is based on the Intel Menlow low-power platform for mobile computing. Fabricated using the latest 45nm process and Hi-K dielectric technology, the Intel Menlow platform comprises the Silverthorne processor, coupled with the Poulsbo chipset and integrated 3D graphics. This extreme power saving solution consumes just one-tenth of the power of other ultra low-voltage, single core platforms. This technology will enable all types of ultra mobile and fanless applications, leading to the availability of really small solutions with extremely good battery runtime.

ACPI 3.0 with congatec’s intelligent battery management technology is included in the conga-CMEN board, which in combination with the Smart Battery Manager Module – conga-SBM²C – will allow mobile and battery operated systems to be easily realized.

All congatec boards are equipped with the company’s embedded BIOS, including a board controller that enhances embedded features such as system monitoring, watchdog timer and the I2C bus. With the ability to isolate itself from the main x86 processor, these features are also available in stand-by mode, hence promoting further power saving functionality.
