Description

The CM-iTC computer-on-module (CoM) / system-on-module (SoM) packs Intel Atom processor technology into the most compact, lightweight PC-on-module available in the market. Its on-board resources suffice to smoothly run operating systems such as Linux, and Windows Embedded, on credit-card sized board capable running on small battery. Board's specifications, in addition to its low cost, make it an ideal building block for any embedded application.

The feature set of the CM-iTC comprises a latest Intel Atom E620 / E680 (code name "Tunnel Creek") CPU , DDR2, micro SD based internal storage and vital computing peripherals. For embedded applications, the CM-iTC provides a variety of display interfaces, two SATA interfaces, PCIexpress buses, two 1000Mbit Ethernet ports, serial ports, USB host and slave ports, CAN with IEEE1588 support ,SPI, two I2C, general purpose I/O lines and many other essential functions. The user interface is supported by an enhanced graphics controller, USB interface for keyboard / mouse and Audio system.
