Compact module Based on Intel Atom processor Z500 series

congatec AG has enhanced its COM Express product family with the introduction of the low power consuming conga-CA.

It features the Intel Atom processor Z500 series and the Intel system controller hub US15W.

The complete design of this compact (95x95mm) sized COM Express module is geared around low power consumption. Typical power requirements for this module will be less than 5 W.

The conga-CA supports up to two PCI Express Lanes, eight USB 2.0, two serial ATA, one IDE Interface and Intel high definition audio. Two onboard SDIO sockets allow for flexible expansion. Additionally, it features PCI bus, multi master I²C bus, LPC bus, fan control and Gigabit Ethernet.

The conga-CA is available in two different CPU variants. The conga-CA eco version is powered by the Intel Atom processor Z510 with 1.1 GHz and 400 MHz front side and memory bus. The high end version is powered by the 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor Z530 with 533 MHz front side and memory bus.

All congatec modules are equipped with an embedded BIOS and a board controller that enhance embedded features such as system monitoring, watchdog timer and the I²C bus.
