MSC Vertriebs COM Express-Platform CXE Features Dual Channel Memory

MSC Vertriebs GmbH has increased the graphic performance of their COM Express-Platform CXE even more through the support of the Dual Channel memory technology. The main memory on the COM Express module CXE-CD945 can be expanded up to a maximum capacity of 4 GB by inserting 2 equivalent sized DDR2 SDRAMs in both 200 pin SO-DIMM sockets. This makes the board especially suitable for high-end industrial applications, such as for use in image processing and medical systems, as well as for game applications.

MSC VertriebsCOM Express-Platform CXEWith the introduction of the CXE-CD945 module, MSC expands their portfolio of powerful COM Express components based on the extended form factor of 155mm x 110 mm. Depending on the requirement, the processor on the board can be selected to be an Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo L7400 (1,5 GHz), an Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo L2400 (1,66 GHz), or even the Intel(R) Celeron(TM) M 440 (1,86 GHz). Other versions are available upon request. Thanks to the Graphics Media Accelerator 950, which is already integrated in the Mobile Intel(R)-Chipsatzes 945GM(E), the module offers excellent 3D graphic capabilities.

As with all new COM Express modules at MSC, the CXE-CD945 module comes with innovative security functions that can inhibit copying, modification, or cloning of the customer’s own know-how. This provides a secure protection of customer IP through digital signature of the hardware and software using the “TrustedCore”-BIOS from Phoenix Technologies and TPM technology (Trusted Platform Module) from Infineon.

Beside a PCI 2.3-Bus-Interface, four PCI-Express(TM) x1 interfaces are available on the COM Express module for high-speed data transfer. Altogether eight USB 2.0 ports allow a flexible connection of various peripherals. Fast Ethernet network connectivity is provided through an Intel(R) 82573 GBit LAN controller. Storage of large data volumes is possible over two SATA II connections with up to 300MB/s or through an enhanced IDE port.

To aid in evaluation and design-in, MSC provides baseboards and development motherboards. The operating systems Windows(TM) XP, VISTA and Linux are supported.
