Kontron ETX-CD - ETX Board with Intel® Core™ Duo Technology

1.06GHz, 1.5GHz or 1.66GHz CPU Processor Versions


ETX-CD is a hight performing Computer On Module based on ETX 3.0 standard. The ETX-CD module is based on the Intel® Core™ Duo processor and Intel® Celeron® M processor as well as the Intel 945GM and ICH7M chipset.

ETX-CD modules will provide the following interfaces that are always located in the same physical position on each board, thus guaranteeing scalability between modules: PCI 2.3, USB 2.0, Parallel ATA, LVDS as well as an ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) for optimised power management.

The JILI display interface technology ensures automatic setting of the video controller parameters for the attached LCD panel. The mounting holes on the board provide secure mounting to allow the module increased shock and vibration resistance.

It also takes advantage of the new ETX® 3.0 specification that allow for 2 Serial ATA ports without violating the existing ETX® 2.8 pin usage
