New COM-Express Ultra Module Targets Ultra Low Power Applications
Von ADVANTECH Europe B.V
Taipei, 21.10.2011 - Advantech, a global embedded computing leader providing solutions across multiple vertical markets through deployment of intelligent applications and services, proudly announces the release of SOM-7564 - COM-Express Ultra Module powered by the Intel® Atom(TM) processor E6xx series. This is Advantech's first COM module adopting the open PCI-Express standard that allows connection to third party chips giving developers even greater flexibility and functionality.
COM R2.0 type 10 compliant for ultra low power consumption
SOM-7564 is Advantech's first COM Express Ultra module compliant with the COM R2.0 type 10 specification for customers targeting ultra lower power consumption applications. The compact design (84 x 55 mm) is about the size of a business card making it suitable for portable applications in Point of Sale, transportation, medical and factory devices.
Compatibility with a variety of IOH to provide flexibility
SOM-7564 is designed with only the CPU on module, which allows customers to pick a I/O hub specifically to fulfill their requirements. For customers looking for the Intel EG20T, Advantech specially designed the SOM-AB5500 application board with this IOH connected to the CPU on SOM-7564 through a PCIe x1 interface. SOM-AB5500 is a 3.5" carrier board with a smart battery manager which delivers ultra low power consumption and diverse I/O options.
Reinforced with the new Advantech iManager 2.0
Advantech iManager provides a valuable suite of programmable APIs such as multi-level watchdog, hardware monitor, smart fan and more; all with user-friendly interfaces. Since this is a built-in solution on chip, iManager ensures functions operate even if the OS fails, helping enhance system stability and compatibility, and reducing effort on carrier board design and platform migration. SOM-7564 will be available in October. Please contact your local sales or visit the website (http://www.advantech.com.tw/embcore/) for more details.
