Atom(TM) based ETX® module supports SATA SSD and DDR2 Memory on a single SODIMM

ADLINK's ETX-AT computer-on-module is designed to support Virtium's SSDDR / SODIMMs while remaining fully backward compatible with standard DDR2 SODIMMs

(PresseBox) (Duesseldorf, ) ADLINK Technology, Inc. (TAIEX: 6166), a global provider of trusted embedded products, announces its highly popular ETX-AT computer-on-module based on the Intel® Atom(TM) N270 has been designed and verified for use with Virtium's SSDDR SODIMM dual function memory modules, while maintaining full backwards compatibility with standard SODIMM memory.

Virtium's SSDDR combines a NAND Flash Serial ATA Solid State Drive (SATA SSD) and DDR2 memory on a single SODIMM module by utilizing reserved pins on the SODIMM for SATA interface signal transfer, thereby remaining fully JEDEC compatible. This allows the SSDDR modules and standard DDR2 modules to be fully interchangeable within the same SODIMM socket.SSDDR is SATA SSD and System Memory on a single SODI.

Virtium Technology Inc. is a manufacturer of memory and storage products for specialized computers in demanding environments. Virtium's SSDDR solution allows system designers to take advantage of the higher data throughput and decreased boot-up times of SATA SSD over other embedded SSD and interfaces such as USB (Universal Serial Bus), CF (Compact Flash with IDE interface), and SD (Secure Digital). The SSDDR SODIMM also allows users to implement an SSD on the ETX-AT as a drop-in part without any hardware modification.

When the ETX-AT is equipped with the SSDDR SODIMM solution, data throughput dramatically increases two to four times compared to that of standard embedded SSD, USB interface, CompactFlash and SD cards. The SSDDR SODIMM is the higher performance SATA disk-on-module solution for embedded applications.

Entry Level Intel-based ETX Module

The ETX-AT, based on Intel's Atom(TM) N270 processor and popular 945GSE/ICH7 combination, is positioned as an entry level ETX module for generic systems but also for systems that require a full set of graphics features. The module comes with integrated support for high resolution CRT, single/dual channel LVDS and TV-out (SDTV and HDTV). The ETX-AT conforms to the latest ETX® 3.02 form factor standard that provides two additional SATA ports on the module while maintaining full backward compatibility with earlier ETX®

standards. A very low power consumption of below 10 watts makes this module suited for truly fanless or deeply embedded systems. Primary applications areas are: Medical Diagnostics and Imaging, Gaming, Industrial Automation, Test and Measurement, POS, and Industrial Control. The ETX-AT excellently suited for new applications, but also provides a seamless upgrade path to prolong the production life of existing ETX based systems by an additional 7 years.

ADLINK's Full Computer-on-Module Product Line ADLINK's complete Computer-on-Module product family includes ETX® modules for PCI/ISA oriented designs and COM Express modules for PCI Express/PCI designs with optional legacy support through LPC. To evaluate or test our modules, starter kits with fully assembled system, cabling and software or prototype boards with ATX form factor are available.
