Emerson Network Power introduced the COMX-CORE Series COM Express modules, MATXM-CORE-411-B MicroATX motherboard, and iVME7210 6U VMEbus board. The new embedded computing platforms are powered by the Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i5 processors. The Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i5 processors use next-generation 32 nanometer manufacturing process technology, providing system integrators with significant increases in performance and energy efficiency.
COMX-CORE Series COM Express Modules
The COMX-CORE-7X0 and COMX-CORE-5X0 feature Intel Core i7 processor 2.0 GHz and 1.06 GHz variants or the Intel Core i5 processor at 2.4 GHz and the mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset. Two SO-DIMM (non-ECC) sockets can accommodate up to 8GB DDR3 memory and an optional eUSB flash module extends on-module storage. Connectivity includes one PCI Express x16 and seven PCI Express x1 expansion sockets, one Gigabit Ethernet, four SATA and eight USB 2.0 ports. Emerson Network Power’s new COM Express modules support dual simultaneous displays without the need for an additional graphics card. The modules are based on the Type 6 COM Express R2.0 form factor (95 by 125 mm).
MATXM-CORE-411-B MicroATX Motherboard
The MATXM-CORE-411-B MicroATX motherboard (244 by 244 mm) features Intel Core i7 processor variants up to 2.66 GHz, the mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset, and two SO-DIMM sockets for up to 8GB DDR3 memory. Connectivity includes one PCI Express x16, three PCI Express x1 expansion sockets and a PCI Express Mini Card socket for WiFi/WiMAX wireless connections. PoweredUSB ports are suitable for powering devices such as bar code scanners and POS printers without additional power supplies. The motherboard supports dual simultaneous displays with HDMI, VGA and dual channel LVDS connections for high resolution output. An optional midplane enables easy, cost-effective maintenance.
iVME7210 6U VMEbus Board
The iVME7210 features Intel Core i7 processor variants up to 2.0 GHz and the mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset. The iVME7210 is ideal for a range of industrial, medical, and military/aerospace applications including robotics, image processing, radar/sonar, C4ISR, and signal intelligence. On-board memory includes up to 8GB DDR3 memory and 256KB non-volatile Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (FeRAM). FeRAM does not require batteries or periodic refreshes and offers many more read/write cycles and faster performance than flash memory, which benefits critical non-volatile data storage, data logs and dynamic program updates. Connectivity includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports, up to five USB 2.0 ports, five serial ports, two SATA ports and dual XMC sites or one XMC site plus SATA HDD. The board’s Digital Visual Interface (DVI) provides support for high quality digital graphics and the integrated Trusted Platform Module enhances data security and encryption capabilities. The iVME7210 supports a range of operating system and software options including Wind River VxWorks, Linux and LynuxWorks LynxOS. Extended temperature and rugged versions will be available via Emerson Network Power alliance partners.
