Module Targets Industrial Automation Applications
RadiSys Corp. introduced its COM Express module that targets industrial automation, gaming and test/measurement applications. The Procelerant CE945GM2A replaces older ETX technology at a comparable price point, enabling high-speed serial interface options such as PCI Express, Serial ATA (SATA) and gigabit Ethernet. Based on Intel Celeron M processor 440, this module allows users to achieve higher processor performance at a value entry point using the COM Express modular form factor. The product can be combined with a proprietary low-profile active heat sink with an embedded fan, allowing the module to be used in 1U platforms. The module and heatsink combination enable rapid design-in by removing the need for the creations of a heatsink system that can effectively cool a 1U system.
