Express-ATC COM module

Adlink Technology Inc. launches the Express-ATC, the newest member of its computer-on-module (COM) family. The Express-ATC COM Express module measures 95mm x 95mm. It is fully compatible with the Type 2 pin-out of the PICMG COM Express spec. The module is an off-the-shelf building block that is ready to plug into custom-made, application-specific carrier boards for embedded and mobile applications.

The Express-ATC is positioned as an entry level COM Express module for systems that require a full set of graphics features in a very small package. Its target applications are medical diagnostics and medical imaging, gaming, industrial automation, test and measurement and industrial control.

Based on the ultra low power Intel Atom N270 processor and Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset, the Express-ATC comes with integrated support for high resolution CRT, single/dual channel LVDS and TV out (SDTV and HDTV). In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, the chipset's SDVO bus can be used to connect to DVI, TMDS or additional LVDS device controllers by extension to a custom designed carrier.

The Express-ATC supports up to 2GBs of DDR2 533MHz memory on a single SODIMM socket. The module supports three PCIe x1 lanes via the Intel I/O controller hub 7-M (ICH7-M) Southbridge, 1GbE connection and two serial ATA channels. Legacy support is provided for a single Parallel ATA channel, 32bit PCI and low-pin count bus.

The Express-ATC supports onboard IDE-based solid-state drive up to 8GB, and comes standard with an integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) providing secure storage of encryption keys for system and data protection. The module is equipped with AMIBIOS8 supporting embedded features such as remote console, CMOS backup, CPU and system monitoring, watchdog timer and OEM splash screen. Positioned for portable and mobile applications, the Express-ATC BIOS supports ACPI-based smart battery for single- or dual-smart battery sub systems.
