The COM Express mini type 10 module conga-MA3 manufactured by congatec has a modern Intel Atom single chip design, L2 cache that can be used by several cores plus a much faster Intel HD graphics unit as opposed to the previous generation.
Further highlights include ultra-compact design, soldered DDR3L memory (ECC where conga-MA3E is concerned) for up to 8 GByte plus onboard MLC or SLC eMMC SSD. The module is designed for the commercial and industrial temperature range; the offer ranges from the single core basic version to quad core Intel Atom E3845 with 1.91 GHz and maximum power consumption of 10 watts.
The eMMC driver supports integrated wear leveling functionality for enhanced data security. Improved graphics support DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.2, OpenCL 1.2 plus highly powerful, flexible hardware decoding for parallel decoding even of multiple high-resolution full HD videos. The processor natively supports resolutions of up to 2,560 x 1,600 pixels (DisplayPort) and 1,920 x 1,200 pixels (HDMI). It is possible to connect up to two independent display interfaces, one of which is channelled through the 24-bit LVDS port.
Natively supporting USB 3.0, the conga-MA3 module guarantees fast data transfer at little energy consumption. A total of six USB 2.0 connections plus one USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port are included. Four 5 Gb/s PCI Express 2.0 lanes as well as two SATA interfaces for up to 3 Gb/s allow for instant and flexible system extensions. The Intel I210 gigabit ethernet controller provides software compatibility: ACPI 5.0, I2C bus and LPC bus for easy integration of legacy I/O interfaces and Intel® high definition audio complete this offer.
