ETX Breaks Into the GHz Area for the First Time

ETX CPU Modules now with up to 1 GB Memory and 1.2 GHz Processor Speed

Kontron´s new ETX CPU modules for customized applications include the ETX-P3M with Intel® processors from 650MHz to 1.2 GHz and the ETX-VE VIA EDEN/C3 with processors from 400 MHz to 800 MHz. These boards offer an extremely high functional density using the VIA Twister-T chipset and the fast 133 MHz front side bus. This allows the highest levels of performance to be offered at an extremely attractive cost/performance ratio. To date, the ETX-P3M is the only ETX module on the market to offer CPU speeds in excess of 1GHz and up to 1GB of RAM.

The ETX-P3m employs Intel processors from the Mobile Pentium® III family. Due to their reduced core voltage and higher clock rates, these processors enable the ETX-P3M to achieve even lower levels of power consumption than its predecessors, the ETX-P3 and ETX-P3E modules. The ETX-P3M also is the first ETX board to include a 1GB (1024MB) SO-DIMM memory module. Thus, the available processor speed and memory are more than enough for today’s most complex applications.

The ETX-VE series addresses the mid-performance segment and its use of VIA processors provides extremely low-power modules. The VIA-EDEN family of processors is optimized for very low levels of power consumption. Therefore, heat generation is kept to a minimum.

The new ETX modules include high-performance graphics with LVDS flat panel support, 10/100BaseT Ethernet, sound, 2xEIDE (UDMA-100) and 4 USB ports as well as all the usual standard PC interfaces.
