XTX™ - Facelift for ETX®
The conga-X915 features Intel® Pentium® M processors up to 2.0 GHz with 2 MByte cache. Compared to the conga-X852 the conga-X915 offers an additional 4x X1 PCI Express lanes for very fast I/Os.
Low Power Consumption
The complete design is geared around low power consumption. The Intel Pentium M 1.4 GHz variant offers very reasonable computing performance for mobile solutions. The congatec Embedded BIOS offers ACPI support that's necessary when using batteries. Enhanced Intel Speed Step® Technology is supported.
Lead-free Design (RoHS)
Starting in July 2006 all electronic products need to be environmentally friendly. The conga-X915 already fulfills these requirements today.
The conga-X915 is based on the ETX® spec 2.7 and can easily be integrated into any existing ETX® design that is not using the ISA bus. In order to take advantage of the XTX functions you only have to consider the X2 connector signals, everything else remains the same.
The integrated Intel® Graphics media Accelerator 900 features the latest 3D, 2D and video capabilities. It supports up to 224 MByte frame buffer using Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). conga-X915 automatically recognizes almost every available flat panel display and sets all parameters accordingly. Additional displays can be connected using the analog VGA interface or the DVO port. TV-Out is also supported.
Two serial ATA® drives can be connected as fast mass storage devices. In order to support economical and robust CompactFlash cards, parallel ATA is also available.
conga-X915 can utilize several high definition audio (HDA) codecs. This alows for the easy implementation of telephone and audio appliactions that require the highest sound quality and numerous channels.
Thanks to the six USB 2.0, 2x SATA®, two COM ports, PCI, I˛C, LPT,... the conga-X915 offers more connectivity than most other computer modules.
The conga-X915 can be equipped optionally with a "Trusted Platform Module" (TPM). This TPM includes coprocessors to calculate efficient hash-and RSA-algorithms with key lengths up to 2,048 bits as well as a real random number generator. Security sensitive applications like gaming and ecommerce will benefit also with improved authentification, integrity and confidence levels.
Software and Driver Support
congatec offers advanced Board-Support-Packages for the conga-X915, which include both the latest tested drivers from silicon vendors and the congatec specific drivers for accessing all of our additional embedded BIOS features. This will help our customers reduce their time-to-market.
Embedded BIOS Features
The conga-X915 is equipped with the congatec Embedded BIOS and supports the following features:
- ACPI Power Management
- ACPI Battery Support
- Supports Customer Specific CMOS Defaults
- Multistage Watchdog
- User Data Storage
- Manufacturing Data and Board Information
- OEM Splash Screen
- Flat Panel Auto Detection
- BIOS Setup Data Backup
- Fast Mode I˛C Bus
