Adlink Technology has released the ETX-AT, the latest member of its Computer-on-Module (COM) range.

The ETX-AT is based on the ETX 3.02 form factor standard that provides two additional SATA ports on the module while maintaining backward compatibility with earlier ETX standards.

The ETX-AT is positioned as an entry-level ETX module for generic systems but also for systems that require a full set of graphics features.

A very low power consumption of below 10W makes this module suited for fanless or deeply embedded systems.

Primary application areas include medical diagnostics and imaging, gaming, industrial automation, test and measurement, POS and industrial control.

The 45nm Intel Atom processor N270 with 512kByte L2 cache on the ETX-AT features a thermal design power of 2.5W at peak levels while supporting Intel Speedstep technology.

The Intel Atom processor N270 supports Hyper-threading technology that essentially makes it behave like a dual-core processor.

‘With its integrated graphics core based on the Intel 945GSE Express chipset and additional 18/24-bit LVDS support, the module is suited to graphics demanding applications such as those in the medical field,’ said Henk van Bremen, product director for Adlink Embedded Division.

The ETX-AT supports up to 2GB of ‘mainstream’ DDR2 memory on a single SODIMM.

The Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset integrates an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 that provides CRT, TV-out (SDTV and HDTV) and has additional support for single/dual channel 18/24-bit LVDS.

The module incorporates an Intel-based 10/100 Base-T Ethernet port, provides two IDE PATA channels, a dual-port SATA controller, four USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, one parallel port (SPP/ECP/EPP) shared with FDD, one PS/2 keyboard/mouse interface and HDA audio.

The ETX-AT supports PCI and legacy ISA based on a high-speed PCI/ISA bridge.

The module comes equipped with Amibios8 supporting embedded features such as remote console, Cmos backup for battery-less operation, CPU and system monitoring, plus watchdog timer.

It can be optionally equipped with a solid state drive (SSD) soldered onto the module to provide up to 4GB of IDE-based bootable Flash storage.

The ETX-AT is sampling in small amounts to customers now and full production quantities are expected to start shipping in February 2009.

The module comes with BSP support for Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded, Windows CE, Linux and Vxworks.
