congatec rolled out the conga-CS45, conga-BS45, and conga-BM45 COM Express modules. They are 100% image compatible and have a common software driver, which facilitates integration into various systems. There are a total of thirteen module variants now available. All COM Express modules are now available in series production volumes. Sample pricing ranges between $500 – $1,000 (US).
Conga-CS45 COM Express Compact Module
The Conga-CS45 is the smallest version in congatec-AG COM Express family. It features an Intel Celeron M 723 processor and an Intel GS45 chipset. With 1.2 GHz and a 1 MB L2 cache, the Conga-CS45 low voltage processor board is ideal for a wide range of applications. It supports up to 4 GB DDR3 SO-DIMM memory. Due to its compact 95×95 mm size, the conga-CS45 is predestined for mobile applications such as ruggedized handhelds. In the laboratory with SiSoft Sandra in Dhrystone ALU mode it achieves 7342 MIPS with a power consumption of 10 watts.
The conga-BS45 module (95 x 125 mm) features an Intel Core 2 Duo SU9300 processor (1.2 GHz, 3MB L2 cache), the Intel GS45 chipset, support for up to 8 GB DDR3 Dual Channel memory. In a direct comparison with the conga-CS45 in the laboratory, it achieved 9740 MIPS with a TDP of 10 watts. The corresponding dual core application could serve as an automation control station with real-time visualization in which hyper threading technology enables each core to run its own independent operating system.
The conga-BM45 high-end module (95 x 125 mm) features the Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 processor (2.53GHz, 6MB L2 cache) and the Intel GM45 chipset. The computer-on-module (COM) is ideal for performance-hungry gaming systems. It supports up to 8 GB DDR3 Dual Channel memory. In the laboratory it achieved an impressive 23,366 MIPS with a TDP of 35 watts. All COM Express modules in the “45″ series offer excellent performance and graphics flexibility. The two independent graphics pipelines can be used for 2×24 bit LVDS, SDVO, TV-Out, analog VGA, DisplayPort, and HDMI.
