ETX® 620 computer-on-module (COM)

The ETX® 620 computer-on-module (COM) from ADLINK Technology (San Jose, CA) is suitable for mission-critical military, avionics, medical, and industrial applications. ETX 620 features the low-power AMD Geode LX 800 processor and CS5536 companion chip. ETX 620 is designed for extremely rugged environments, operating over temperature extremes of -40°C to +85°C, vibrations up to 15Grms, and shock up to 50Grms. The ETX 620 offers processor speed of 500MHz and memory support for up to 1GB of DDR RAM. ETX 620 also offers 2D/3D graphics and a choice of TTL or 24-Bit LVDS LCD interfaces along with legacy CRT, making it easier for system designers to choose the right display for their solution. ETX 620 features a full 16-bit ISA bus due to the use of a PCI-to-ISA bridge with Distributed DMA, rather than an LPC-to-ISA bridge. The use of an Intel® Ethernet controller allows wider temperature operation than possible with other alternatives. ETX 620 contains all of the PC-compatible subsystems without the I/O connectors themselves. The I/O and bus signals are passed through high-density surface mount connectors to application-specific carrier boards. ETX 620 I/O includes two Serial ATA (SATA) ports, four USB 2.0 ports, Intel 10/100 Ethernet, UDMA IDE interface, two Serial RS-232 ports, floppy, keyboard/mouse, and AC ’97 Audio.
