A compact form factor COM Express Type 2 Computer-on-Module is specifically designed for use in the industrial temperature E2 range from -40° to +85°C. The new microETXexpress-XL from Kontron features the Intel Atom processor Z520PT and Intel System Controller Hub US15WPT. The microETXexpress-XL with the robust COM Express Type 2 connector is specifically designed for applications under extreme environmental conditions ranging from very high to very low temperatures, and especially stressful cycling thermal conditions such as in UAVs, which experience high temperatures on the ground and extremely low temperatures at their operational altitude. All components of the microETXexpress-XL are fully industrial temperature rated and are vendor-confirmed to withstand temperatures from -40° to +85°C. 

Within the dimensions of its compact footprint (95 mm x 95 mm), the Kontron microETXexpress-XL offers a comprehensive feature set. Based on the Intel Atom processor Z520PT, it supports up to 2 Gbytes of soldered DDR2 system memory and even offers room for an optional onboard 2 Gbyte Solid-State Drive (SSD) on the module. Furthermore, taking advantage of the full bandwidth of the COM Express Type 2 connector, it offers 1x Gigabit Ethernet, 1x Serial ATA, 1x PATA and 8x USB 2.0, as well as 2 PCI Express x1 Lanes and PCI for customer-specific extensions. With the SDVO port for DVI, SDTV and HDTV along with 24-bit single channel LVDS, the Kontron microETXexpress-XL offers extensive connectivity options for various displays and monitors. Intel High Definition audio rounds out the feature set. These extensive features make the Kontron microETXexpress-XL one of the most I/O-rich compact FF Computer-on-Modules available for extreme environments. The Kontron microETXexpress-XL supports Linux, QNX, VxWorks as well as Windows XP, XPe and CE.
