Kontron´s New ETX-P3T Module Addresses Low Power Consumption without Sacrificing Performance

Newest Kontron COM Product Features the Intel(R) Intel(R) Celeron(R) Processors and the Intel(R) i815E Chipset

Kontron, a market leader in embedded computer technology, today announced the introduction of the ETX-P3T, the latest addition to their ETX family of embedded modules. An ETX (Embedded Technology eXtended) module provides complete PC functionality in a component that plugs into an application-specific carrier board. The new ETX-P3T Computer-on-Module (COM) uses Intel(R) Celeron(R) processors and the Intel(R) i815E chipset. Reduced CPU voltage and speed-step support ensure the highest performance achievable on ETX at reasonable power consumption. Improved power management is achieved using both ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) and APM 1.2 (Advanced Power Management) allowing for fanless-cooling and extended battery life.
In addition to standard ETX features, the ETX-P3T supports the Intel(R) 82815 chipset with integrated Graphics Core (BGA544), 2x IDE ports with support for ATA 33, 4x USB 2.0 ports, up to 512MBytes SDRAM, 10/100 Mbit Base-T ethernet, Audio AC97 Codec VIA, DVO (optional) LVDS up to SXGA 1280x1024, keyboard/mouse controllers, Real-Time clock, and watchdog timer.
