Newly Enhanced Modules Show Continued Advancements of ETX Standard

Kontron, one of the leading global embedded computer technology companies, announces the release of the newly upgraded ETX-MGX and ETX-P3E component SBC modules. The two popular designs now even better equipped to serve the needs of the fast-paced market.

By upgrading the existing ETX module based on the Intel? Pentium? III processor, Kontron will offer the first ETX product able to support a greater than 1 GHz CPU.
