XTX Embedded Computer Module with 64 Bit Dual Core CPU

conga-X945/64: High Performance XTX Module based on Intel® Core® 2 Duo

Deggendorf, Nuremberg, November 28, 2006 – The new conga-X945/64 sets a new performance standard for embedded computer modules on ETX/XTX form factors. It utilizes the new 64 Bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor L7400. The conga-X945/64 is being shown for the first time at the SPS/IPC/Drives in Nuremberg.

The conga-X945/64 is equipped with a 1.5 GHz 64 Bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor. This CPU has 4 MByte L2 cache and can address up to 2 GByte DDR2 667 RAM.
The processor is manufactured using a 65 nm process, which provides an excellent computing performance to power consumption ratio.
The conga-B945/64 utilizes the Intel® 945GM chipset. It features numerous interfaces and choices for expansions. The conga‑X945/64 provides 4x PCI Express lanes, 6x USB 2.0, HDA digital audio, 2x serial ATA and signals for 2x ExpressCard. All congatec system extensions, such as ACPI battery management, multi stage watchdog timer, fast multimaster I²C bus and the congatec embedded BIOS features are implemented.
The conga-X945/64 can be equipped optionally with a “Trusted Platform Module“ (TPM). This TPM includes coprocessors to calculate efficient hash and RSA algorithms. Security sensitive applications such as gaming and e-commerce will benefit also from improved authentication, integrity and confidence levels.
The Intel Media Accelerator 950 graphics controller is integrated in the chipset and is able to drive two independent graphic channels using 2x24 Bit LVDS, SDVO, TV-Out or analog VGA. Flat panel displays are automatically recognized and configured using EPI (Embedded Panel Interface).
As a result of the 64 Bit support offered by the Intel Core 2 Duo processor, the conga-X945/64 is highly flexible and can support both 64 Bit and 32 Bit applications as well as operating systems. Intel's virtualization technology allows multiple operating systems and applications to be executed simultaneously on independent CPU cores and partitions.
The conga-X945/64 is available for mass production from April 2007.  Engineering samples are available now.
