New ARBOR COM Express Compact Module with Single-chip, Quad-core Intel® Atom™ Processor E3800 Family

ARBOR Technology, a leading provider of embedded computing solutions, announces the release of the EmETXe-i2309 COM Express Compact module. The EmETXe-i2309 is based on the new Intel® Atom™ processors E3800 family (formerly codenamed “Bay Trail”).
The COM Express Type 6 Compact (95 x 95 mm) module offers a compelling entry price for this form factor, and the Intel® Atom™ processors E3800 family variant features a stunning thermal design power (TDP) from 6 watts to 10 watts. Innovations include a large L2 cache shared by multiple cores and a faster Intel HD graphics unit compared with the previous generation. This turns new applications into visual experiences.

The modules support Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) set, which is more relevant than ever in practical application. This allows developers to offload particularly compute-intensive packaging and encryption routines of the well-known cryptographic algorithm AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) into hardware, thereby enabling high performance encryption without putting a significant burden on the CPU cores.

The EmETXe-i2309 COM Express Compact module provides up to 8 GB fast DDR3L memory via one SO-DIMM socket and up to 16GB eMMC 4.5 for mass storage. The integrated graphics is significantly more powerful than the previous model and supports DirectX 11, OpenGL 3, OpenCL 1.2 and high-performance, flexible hardware decoding to decode even multiple high-resolution full HD videos in parallel.

Up to 2,560 x 1,600 pixels with DisplayPort and dual channels 24-bit LVDS, support to two independent displays.

Thanks to native USB 3.0 support, the modules achieve fast data transmission with low power consumption. A total of eight USB 2.0 ports are provided, one of which is designed for USB 3.0 Superspeed.

Seven PCI Express 2.0 lanes and two SATA interfaces with up to 3 Gb/s enable fast and flexible system extensions. The Intel® Ethernet Controller i210 helps with software compatibility. ACPI 5.0, I2C bus, LPC bus for easy integration of legacy I/O interfaces and Intel® High Definition Audio complete the feature set. The EmETXe-i2309 provide -20 ~ 70°C Extend and -40 ~ 85°C Wide Range Operating Temperature.
The following CPU variants are supported by the module:
