conga-CA945 COM Express Module

The conga-CA945 COM Express module features the Intel Atom[tm] processor N270 and the full-featured Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset in conjunction with the Intel I/O Controller Hub 7-M. The complete design of the compact (95x95mm) COM Express module offers excellent performance-per-watt at optimized price levels. The total thermal design power (TDP) of the processor/chipset combination is only 8 Watts, making applications that typically require less than 5 Watts ideal for this module. Combining this low power consumption with ACPI 3.0 battery management also provides the ability to create fully-featured mobile embedded applications. The conga-CA945 is priced at $290 (US list). Samples will be available at the end of this month.

conga-CA945 COM Express moduleAll congatec modules are equipped with an embedded BIOS and a board controller that enhance 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 made available in stand-by mode, hence promoting further power saving functionality. In addition to enhanced power management, the congatec Embedded BIOS supports ACPI 3.0 with battery management.
