September, 2009. Taipei, Taiwan
Avalue’s new StarterKits, ESK-COM and ESK-ETX, provide customers quick test and evaluation. The StarterKit contains the COM express or ETX CPU modules with one Micro-ATX or ATX carrier board, it also comes with complete accessories including one passive heat-sink or heat-spreader, one power supply, one starter guide, and also a design guide CD in which users can find Win XP Embedded and Linux BSPs, drivers, and schematics.
There are many benefits that the computer-on-modules will bring, such as cost-saving, quick installation and flexible applications. According to the pin-out type-2 design of carrier boards, customers can reduce a lot of time for installation and examination, and achieve advanced cost-down. Furthermore, the full-functioned baseboards could be the references for those who are capable of designing their own baseboards, including choosing storage device interfaces, testing software compatibility, or selecting expansion slots for extra system functions.
Based on the modular concept, Avalue’s StarterKit is available for evaluation with other COMe or ETX modules. Therefore this StarterKit can be ordered with any one of Avalue’s upper board by requests. Customers will be profited by its highly optional of system performance and long-term product life.
Thanks to the energy-saving and small footprint of Atom-based processors, the computer-on-modules are more widely used in applications like portable devices, medical terminals and gaming, etc.; and even versatile space-constrained environments, such as in-vehicle systems, retail-floor devices, and infotainment systems.
