ADLINK Unveils ETX-NR667 Module with 64-bit Intel Core2 Duo Processor

ADLINK Technology Inc. (TAIEX: 6166) announced a new member to its ETX® family of Computers on Modules in production. The ETX-NR667 is based on the latest ETX® 3.02 form factor standard that allows two additional SATA ports to the module while maintaining full backward compatibility with earlier ETX® standards. The ETX® 3.02 standards means that current carrier boards in production and based on earlier ETX® revisions do not need to be redesigned to accommodate the ETX-NR667 and make use of its SATA ports.

ADLINK ETX-NR667 Module with 64-bit Intel Core 2 Duo ProcessorThe new ETX-NR667 supports an enhanced graphic feature set that includes support for dual-channel 24-bit LVDS and targets medical automation, gaming, instrumentation, pos, mobile computing and transportation markets.

The ETX-NR667′s CPU scales from an ULV Celeron® operating at a frequency of 1 GHz up to an Intel® Core[tm]2 Duo–allowing the ETX-NR667 to be used in both fanless applications that require very low power and in applications that need high speed for high-end graphic support. The Core[tm]2 Duo architecture introduces 64-bit processing to the embedded market and brings new features such as SSSE3, Trusted Execution Technology and Enhanced SpeedStep. This generation of Intel® CPU’s maintains the same power envelope as the earlier Pentium M generation while increasing performance and offering additional high-end and power saving features, making the ETX-NR667 an excellent choice for drop in replacements to improve performance.

The ETX-NR667 module provides one SODIMM socket that can accommodate up to a maximum of 2 GB of DDR2 667 MHz memory. Graphic support on the module includes single- or dual-channel 24-bit LVDS, analog CRT and TV-out (SDTV and HDTV).

The module further incorporates an Intel based 10/100Base-T Ethernet port, a PATA EIDE controller, a dual-port SATA controller, 4 USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, one parallel port (SPP/ECP/EPP) shared with FDD, one PS/2 keyboard/mouse interface, an AC’97 audio interface, and power management functionality.

The ETX-NR667 fully supports PCI and legacy ISA and comes with embedded features such as watchdog controller, RS-232 console redirection and CMOS EEPROM backup for BIOS settings and battery-less operation. The ISA bus is implemented through a PCI-to-ISA bridge, assuring both backward compatibility with ISA-based cards and the high performance of dual-core processing.
