Fast COM Express graphics engine ready for design-in

Eching, Germany—The newest and fastest Kontron COM Express module graphics engine built around high-end embedded chipset—the Kontron ETXexpress-690 Computer-on-Module—is now available for evaluation so that developers can immediately begin platform and application testing as well as implementation into application-specific custom carrier board designs.

The Kontron ETXexpress-690 COM Express Computer-on-Module is based on the latest AMD M690E and SB600 embedded chipset with the integrated Radeon X1200 graphics core and has been tested for DirectX 9, OpenGL as well as hardware accelerated MPEG and WMV9 decoding capabilities using the newest range of benchmarking tools. Up to 256 MBytes of graphics memory, anti-aliasing and 3D texture come together to make the Kontron ETXexpress-690 Computer-on-Module number one on the list of the relevant benchmarks, i.e. 3D Mark 05 and Maxton Cinebench 10.0, according to Kontron..

The Kontron ETXexpress-690 Computer-on-Module is 100 percent COM Express compliant and comes with a host of interfaces that conform to the PICMG COM.0 specification's Type 2 pin-out. By conforming to the COM Express specification, Kontron's latest Computer-on-Module also supports TDMS for applications requiring DVI or HDMI graphics.

Extensive I/O options ensure application flexibility and include PCI Express 3×1 lanes + PEG 1×8, 10/100/1000 Mbit Ethernet, eight USB 2.0 ports and dual video streaming capabilities to mention just a few. For enhanced data safety, the Kontron ETXexpress-690 offers a RAID 0,1,10 subsystem along with AHCI and 4 x SerialATA 300 ports for quick hard drive access. The Kontron ETXexpress-690 Computer-on-Module also offers continued support for applications requiring PCI and IDE interfaces.

The Kontron ETXexpress-690 Computer-on-Module is intended for a wide range of embedded solutions, including medical, industrial and security imaging applications, powerful HMIs for process visualization, CAD and digital mock-up systems as well as POS/POI, gaming and multimedia solutions.
