An entry-level Type 2 Pin-out COM Express module is available with three variants of the new Intel Atom dual-core processor generation, which are manufactured in 32nm technology. The conga-CCA from congatec is available with the Atom N2600 processor with only 3.5W TDP (1M Cache, 1.6 GHz); the Atom N2800 processor (1M Cache, 1.86 GHz) with 6.5W TDP; or the Atom D2700 processor (1M Cache, 2.13 GHz) with 10W TDP and up to 4 Gbyte single-channel DDR3 memory (1066 MHz). The chipset module, which is based on the Intel NM10, provides improved memory, graphics and display functionalities plus intelligent performance and greater energy efficiency.

The highlight of the COM Express module is the graphics performance of the integrated Intel GMA 3650 graphics chip. With a clock rate of 640 MHz it is twice as fast as the GPU of the previous Atom generation. In addition to VGA and LVDS, it has two digital display interfaces that can be executed for DisplayPort, HDMI or DVI.

Four PCI Express x1 lanes, two SATA 2.0, eight USB 2.0 and a Gigabit Ethernet interface enable fast and flexible system extensions. Fan control, LPC bus for easy integration of legacy I/O interfaces and Intel High Definition Audio round off the feature set.

The conga-CCA module is equipped with the new embedded firmware solution UEFI. The congatec board controller provides an extensive embedded PC feature set. Independence from the x86 processor means that functions such as system monitoring or the I2C bus can be executed faster and more reliably, even if the system is in standby mode.A matching evaluation carrier board for COM Express Type 2 is also available. The conga-CCA is priced starting at less than $225 in evaluation quantities.
