ADLINK Technology introduced the Express-ATC Computer-on-Module (COM). The Express-ATC measures only 95 x 95 millimeters and is fully compatible with the Type 2 pin-out of the PICMG COM Express specification. The highly integrated compact size COM Express module is an off-the-shelf building block that is ready to plug into custom-made, application-specific carrier boards for embedded and mobile applications. The Express-ATC COM Express module is currently available at a list price of $850 with 2 GB RAM, a 4 GB solid state drive, and a heatsink.
The Express-ATC is an entry level COM Express module for systems that require a full set of graphics features in a very small package. It is ideal for medical diagnostics and medical imaging, gaming, industrial automation, test and measurement, and industrial control.
The Express-ATC is based on the ultra low power Intel Atom N270 processor and Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset. It supports high resolution CRT, single/dual channel LVDS, and TV out (SDTV and HDTV). In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, the chipset’s SDVO bus can be used to connect to DVI, TMDS or additional LVDS device controllers by extension to a custom designed carrier.
The Express-ATC supports up to 2 GB of DDR2 533 MHz memory on a single SODIMM socket. The module supports three PCI Express x1 lanes via the Intel I/O Controller Hub 7-M (ICH7-M) Southbridge, one Gigabit Ethernet connection and two SATA channels. Legacy support is provided for a single Parallel ATA channel, 32-bit PCI and Low Pin Count bus (LPC).
The Express-ATC supports onboard IDE-based Solid State Drive (SSD) up to 8 GB. The board comes standard with an integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) providing secure storage of encryption keys for system and data protection. The module is equipped with AMIBIOS8 supporting embedded features such as Remote Console, CMOS backup, CPU and System Monitoring, Watchdog Timer, and OEM Splash Screen. Positioned for portable and mobile applications, the Express-ATC BIOS supports ACPI-based Smart Battery for single or dual smart battery sub systems.
