conga-BA945 Highlights

  • Low Power Design
    Despite the high processing power, the Intel Atom processor N270 gets by with a maximum power dissipation of 2.5W. Thanks to the sophisticated power management provided by the congatec embedded BIOS the actual values reached during practical use remain well below this maximum level.
  • Hyper Threading
    The congatec conga-BA945 supports Intel Hyper Threading Technology, which means with the appropriate software it has the capability of running two operating systems in parallel and completely independent of one another.
  • Gigabit Ethernet
    The conga-BA945 features Gigabit Ethernet via the COM Express connectors to enable fast communication links.
  • Mass Storage
    Two serial ATA drives can be connected as fast mass storage devices. High performance RAID 0 and RAID 1 levels are supported. In order to support economical and robust CompactFlash cards, parallel ATA is also available.
  • Connectivity
    8x USB 2.0, 2x SATA, 5x PCI Express Lanes, PCI Express Graphic (PEG), PCI, I²C
  • Graphics Efficiency
    The integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 features the latest 3D, 2D and video capabilities. It supports up to 224 MByte frame buffer using Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). With EPI support the conga-BA945 automatically recognizes almost every available flat panel display and sets all parameters accordingly. Additional displays can be connected using the analog VGA interface or the SDVO ports. TV-Out is also supported.
  • Sound
    conga-BA945 can utilize several high definition audio (HDA) codecs. This allows for the easy implementation of telephone and audio applications that require the highest sound quality and numerous channels.
  • Security
    The conga-BA945 can be equipped optionally with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM). This TPM includes coprocessors to calculate efficient hash- and RSA-algorithms with key lengths up to 2,048 bits as well as a real random number generator. Security sensitive applications like gaming and ecommerce will benefit also with improved authentification, integrity and confidence levels.
