Conga – BA945 - .PDF file.

Congatec AG has released the Conga-BA945, its fourth embedded computer module based on the Intel Atom processor family.

The Conga-BA945 is a COM Express module with type-two pinout.

It conforms to the specified COM Express basic size of 95 x 125mm.

The Intel Atom processor N270 has a clock speed of 1.60 GHz, as well as 512 KB cache and a 533 MHz frontside bus speed.

It has a maximum power dissipation of 2.5W.

The sophisticated power management provided by the Congatec embedded BIOS ensures the actual values reached during practical use remain well below this maximum level.

The Congatec Conga-BA945 supports Intel Hyper Threading Technology, which means that with the appropriate software it can run two operating systems in parallel and independent of one another.

The Conga-BA945 uses the Intel 945GME chip set, which facilitates the parallel use of two memory modules, allowing the memory to be expanded to a maximum of 4GB and dual-channel memory access.

This increases graphics performance by more than 50 per cent.

The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 graphics controller integrated in the chip set can access up to 224 MB of video memory with a 10.6 GB/s bandwidth.

Output for the two independent graphics channels can be via 2×24 bit LVDS, SDVO, TV-out or analogue VGA.

The Conga-BA945 uses the EPI graphics standard and the VESA DisplayID definition for automatic recognition and configuration of flat-panel displays.

To allow rapid system expansion, five PCI Express lanes, a PCI Express graphics slot (PEG 1×16), eight USB 2.0 ports, two serial ATA ports and the signals for two Expresscards are provided.

The range of functions is rounded off by a fan controller, the LPC bus for slow extensions and an HDA interface that can provide powerful digital audio.

The maximum power dissipation of the Conga-BA945 is less than 10W, making it ideal for all mobile and fanless applications with high graphics performance demands.

congatec AG is an innovative business that specializes in the development and marketing of industrial computer modules using the standard form factors Qseven, COM Express, XTX and ETX. congatec is today a leading manufacturer in this field.

Embedded computer modules are very small computer boards that can be integrated in almost every application without a cable connection. Every signal is transmitted via small, densely packed board-to-board industrial connectors to a customer- or application-specific carrier board. This carrier board contains all the hardware expansions and also allows the cable less distribution of the required interfaces. Computer boards are equipped with numerous and various connectors in order to allow the connection of a variety of peripherals and expansions.

The company’s products can be used in a variety of industries and applications, such as industrial automation, medical technology, automotive supplies, aerospace and transportation. Core knowledge and technical know-how includes unique extended BIOS features as well as comprehensive driver and board support packages. Following the design-in phase, customers are given support via extensive product lifecycle management. congatec currently has 92 employees and branch offices in the UK, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Israel, Taiwan and the USA.
