Germany : Exceptional energy, cost-effective Kontron ETXA module with new AMD Embedded G-Series APU T16R extends lifecycle of PCI/ISA-based applications through 2018.

Kontron has introduced a low-energy and cost-effective version of its ETXA 3.0 Computer-on-Module ETXA-OH. The new ETXA 3.0-compliant Kontron ETXA-OH T16R incorporates the new AMD Embedded G-Series APU T16R, which features an extremely low average power consumption of only 2.3 Watts. While operating at the same power consumption level as the AMD Geode-LX-based solutions, it delivers up to three times the level of performance. The Kontron ETXA-OH T16R, with its native PCI and ISA support, provides the ideal upgrade path for AMD Geode-based ETXA designs and for low-power systems with discontinued ETXA modules. Additionally, the new module extends the availability of the ETXA standard for at least five more years. OEMs in markets such as Automation, Infotainment, Kiosk and Medical can significantly increase the processing and graphic performance of their systems and effectively extend the life of their PCI/ISA-based applications through 2018.

The upgrade with the new Kontron ETXA-OH is a particularly economical solution in terms of time and cost savings. Existing system designs and cooling solutions can continue to perform without modifications. The new Computer-on-Module also utilizes DDR3 memory, minimizing memory costs, while enabling higher memory speeds and greater capacity. Also, customers who want to update their applications with latest display technology, the ETXA module offers native support for DP++ (DisplayPort/HDMI/DVI) onboard. Thus OEMs can easily increase the visual experience of their applications without changes to the carrierboard.

For this, the new ETXA 3.0 module offers significantly improved graphics performance and features via the integrated AMD Radeon HD 6250 - it supports the latest 3D graphic libraries such as DirectXA 11 and OpenGL 3.2 and delivers a brilliant and fluid reproduction of high-resolution BluRay and video streams of up to 1080p. In addition to the native DP++ on-board Kontron is offering an adapter for LVDS via DisplayPort. In combination with the native dual channel LVDS via the ETXA connectors the module can control two digital displays in the highest image quality. This enables the upgrade of existing ETXA applications with the latest dual display technology with HD support.

The feature set in detail

The new Kontron ETXA 3.0 Computer-on-Module ETXA-OH T16R is based on the energy-efficient AMD Embedded G-series APU T16R (615 MHz) and the Fusion Platform Controller Hub. It supports up to 4 GB energy and cost-effective DDR3 RAM, which itself offers low latencies to memory intensive applications. Those that have to integrate high-speed data storage media, such as Blu-ray players or extremely robust SSDs can take advantage of the two SATA connections with 6 Gbit/sec through high transfer rates and rapid loading processes. An optional on-board SSD Flash enables space-saving integration of robust storage media.
