Description

Diamond's ETX Computer-on-Module (COM) family provides a series of compact, plug-compatible, embedded computing cores for powering a wide variety of custom embedded applications. The modules are intended to be plugged into application-specific baseboards to create a customized embedded computing subsystem--an approach that minimizes product development investments and risks, and shortens time-to-revenue.

Each Diamond ETX COM integrates a complete set of PC-compatible functionality, including a high-performance processor, up to 2GB of DDR2 SO-DIMM SDRAM, and an extensive set of system controllers and peripheral interfaces. CPU options range from the low-power Intel Atom to the high-performance Intel Core 2 Duo, enabling an optimal match to the application's performance, power, and cost requirements.

By virtue of their conformance to the ETX Version 3 specification, Diamond's ETX COMs provide a consistent set of on-board controllers and I/O interfaces, and are essentially interchangeable with one another. The modules include CRT and dual 18-bit or 24-bit LVDS video, 10/100Mbps Ethernet, SATA, IDE, USB 2.0, audio, serial, parallel, and PS/2 ports. Additionally, they offer both 32-bit PCI and 16-bit ISA buses, allowing maximum flexibility of application development. To accommodate harsh outdoor environments, the modules also support extended operating temperatures.

Baseboards

Standard ETX Baseboard

The Pluto ETX Baseboard Matches ETX 3.0 Dimensions

Diamond offers a standard ETX baseboard (shown above) that matches the form-factor of the ETX 3.0 COM standard. The Pluto baseboard integrates a full set of I/O headers on its top side, along with a PC/104-Plus expansion bus for modular addition of other required functions. The ETX 3.0 COM (and its heatspreader) installs on the baseboard's bottom side, as shown in the right-hand photo above.

Part No. Description
PLT-BASE PC/104-Plus ETX baseboard

Application-specific ETX Baseboards

Through more than 20 years of experience producing industry-leading data acquisition I/O on PC/104 and PC/104-Plus modules and single-board computers, Diamond has developed an extensive library of analog, digital, and I/O interface technology. This expertise is now available in the form of application-specific baseboards tuned to fit precise customer requirements, coupled with ETX COMs implement the processing power needed to drive the application.
