Computer-on-Module Has Type 6 Pin-OutCoinciding with the launch of the COM Express 2.0 specification by the PCI Industrial Manufacturers’ Group (PICMG), Kontron presents an additional version of the Computer-on-Module ETXexpress-AI based on the new COM Express Type 6 pin-out definition.

As compared to the Type 2 pin-out definition for COM Express Basic form factor modules, the new Type 6 pin-out offers configurable digital display interfaces (DDI) SDVO, DisplayPort, and HDMI/DVI, along with 23 PCI Express Gen 2 lanes. This provides more native display options and higher serial bandwidth than previously possible. Most noteworthy is that the native support for all the new display interfaces simplifies carrier board designs, reducing time-to-market and total cost of ownership for graphics-intensive applications. The extensive PCI Express support underscores the trend of moving away from legacy parallel interfaces towards pure serial embedded system designs for higher bandwidth and reduced latency. This represents a smooth transition path for application designers looking to enhance their designs with next generation technology such as faster drives and peripherals.
