Module endures extreme temperature ranges

As an enhancement to its existing Com Express range, Congatec has announced the launch of conga-Cax, an industrial grade module based on the Intel Atom processor Z5xx series.

Unveiled at Embedded World 2009, the complete design of the 95x95mm Com Express compatible module is geared around low power consumption and harsh industrial temperature ranges. All components used for the design have been specified for an ambient temperature range of –40 to 85 degrees C. Typical power requirements for the module are under 5W. The conga-Cax can be used in applications such as automotive or industrial. It is available in two cpu ranges, one powered by the Intel Atom processor Z510PT with 1.1GHz and 400MHz front side and memory bus. The other version incorporates the 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor Z520PT. Both versions are equipped with 512K L2 cache and can access up to one gigabyte of onboard soldered DDR2 RAM.
