Published: 20 March 2012 - Michelle Winny
Kontron announced what it claims as “the world's first” COM Express mini Computer-on-Module with Dual-Core processing.
The Kontron COMe-mCT10 is the latest addition to the company’s family of formerly named nanoETXexpress modules. It is based on the next-generation Intel Atom processors N2600, N2800 and D2700.
The PICMG COM Express Type 10 pin-out Computer-on-Module provides up to twice the graphics power, up to 28 percent higher processor performance and processor thermal design power (TDP) which is cut in half as compared to second generation Intel Atom processors.
The device is credit card sized so is ideal for developers of small devices who want to take advantage of the high-level of standardisation and scalability of the COM Express standard.
The COMe-mCT10 with Intel Dual core processor performance are well-suited for handheld mobile embedded systems, as well as small portable, in-vehicle or stationary devices such as POS/POI, infotainment, digital signage, gaming and medical.
