Diamond Systems has launched a series of ETX 3.0-compliant computer-on-module (COM) products based on Intel’s LV and ULV Core 2 Duo and Core Duo processors.

The modules operate over an extended temperature range of -40C to +85C, making them suitable for performance- and reliability-critical applications, including aerospace, defence, transportation, energy management and industrial automation.

To simplify the migration of PC/104-Plus stacks to these high-performance Intel processors, the ETX-945 is available as a pre-integrated Pluto module with a PC/104-Plus expansion interface.

The ETX-945 measures 4.5in x 3.7in (114mm x 95mm) and is built around Intel’s 945GME and ICH7M chipset.

It provides an on-board SODIMM socket for up to 2GB of high-speed DDR2 system DRAM.

The ETX-945’s high-resolution display controller works with analogue and LVDS-interfaced CRTs and LCDs at resolutions up to 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, and supports dual independent displays.

The ETX-945 is used as a macro component, plugged into system baseboards containing application-specific circuitry, interface buffering, I/O connectors, plus other required functions and components.

The module’s inclusion of both 32-bit PCI and 16-bit ISA expansion buses on its ETX 3.0-compliant interface maximises flexibility of system development.

Supported operating systems currently include Windows XP and Linux 2.6, with support for additional OS and RTOS (real-time operating systems) available on request.

Also available are several pre-integrated Pluto (ETX form factor) and Neptune (EPIC form factor) development kits, which include generic or application-oriented ETX baseboards, complete sets of interface cables, OS driver software and comprehensive documentation.
