The conga-BM45 offers graphics output flexibility. Both independent graphic pipelines can use either 2×24 Bit LVDS, SDVO, TV-Out, analog VGA or one of the new interfaces DisplayPort and HDMI. The conga-BM45 implements the new VESA standard DisplayID and EPI (Embedded Panel Interface) in parallel allowing for automatic recognition of the attached flat panel display.

Five PCI Express lanes, PCI Express Graphic (PEGx16), eight USB 2.0 ports, four SATA-2 interfaces as well as signals for two ExpressCards allow for fast system extensions. Fan control, LPC bus for slow speed extensions and HDA, a high performance digital audio interface, complete this full feature set.
