MSC Vertriebs Develops COM Express Module with Intel Celeron ULV

For applications in which low power consumption is of high importance, MSC Vertriebs GmbH developed the COM Express Module CXB-CD945, based on the Intel(R) Celeron(TM) M-Processor ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) 423. The dual processor impresses with its low power dissipation of just 5.5W (thermal design power) at a clock frequency of 1.06GH.

The COM Express Module CXB-CD945 incorporates optional security functions allowing only the customer-owned user software (IP) to be executed on the module. To achieve this innovative capability, the “Trusted Core” BIOS by Phoenix Technologies is implemented on the module, in addition to the TPM-Chip (Trusted Platform Module) from Infineon.

Thanks to the Mobile Intel(R)-Chipset 945GM available on the board, the COM Express-Module CXB-CD945 offers excellent 3D graphic characteristics. The Graphics Media Accelerator uses a video RAM with a maximum capacity of 224MB at a bandwidth up to 10GB/s and supports dual-display solutions. Main memory can be increased up to 2GB by inserting fast DDR2-RAM modules.

For fast data transfer, a PCI Express(TM) x 16 interface and four PCI-Express(TM) x1 interfaces are provided on the small COM Express Module measuring only 125 x 95mm. In addition, eight USB 2.0 ports are available for communication with peripheral systems. Choosing the optional Intel 82573 GBit LAN-Controller provides for a fast 10 / 100 / 1000 Base TX-LAN network connection. Storage of large amounts of data is possible using the two SATA II connections.
