San Diego, Calif. - congatec has added three new modules to the congatec-AG COM Express family - the conga-CS45, conga-BS45 and conga-BM45, with a total of thirteen module variants available. The new modules are 100 percent image compatible and have a common software driver, which facilitates integration into various systems.
The smallest version in this product family is the conga-CS45 COM Express Compact module with an Intel Celeron M 723 processor and'an Intel GS45 chipset. With 1.2 GHz and a 1 MB L2 cache, this ultra-low-voltage processor model provides sufficient performance for a range of applications. It supports up to 4 GB DDR3 SO-DIMM memory. Due to its compact 95x95 mm size, the conga-CS45 is targeted 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.
A higher performance model that still has low power requirements, the conga-BS45 module (95 x 125 mm) has an Intel CoreT 2 Duo SU9300 processor, 1.2 GHz, 3MB L2 cache and the Intel GS45 chipset with 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, for example, be an automation control station with real-time visualization in which hyper-threading technology enables each core to run its own independent operating system.
The high-end module is the conga-BM45 (95 x 125 mm) with the Intel CoreT 2 Duo T9400 processor, 2.53GHz, 6MB L2 cache and the Intel GM45 chipset. The computer-on-module (COM) provides the required processor and graphics performance for performance-hungry applications such as gaming systems, and can be equipped with up to 8 GB DDR3 Dual Channel memory. In the laboratory it achieved an 23,366 MIPS with a TDP of 35 watts.
All COM Express modules in the "45" series offer great performance and considerable graphics flexibility. The two independent graphics pipelines can be used for 2x24 bit LVDS, SDVO, TV-Out, and analog VGA as well as new interfaces such as DisplayPort and HDMI.
All COM Express modules are now available in series production volumes. Sample pricing ranges between $500 - $1,000US.
