Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced two new embedded computing platforms powered by the latest Intel® Atom™ processors N450, D410 and D510, announced today by Intel®. Emerson’s new COMX-ATOM-420 COM Express module and MITX-ATOM-440 Mini-ITX motherboard extend the company’s fast-growing line of computer-on-modules and small form factor motherboards designed for use in a variety of digital signage, medical, industrial automation and surveillance applications.

These latest Intel® Atom™ processors enable Emerson Network Power to offer system integrators a scalable range of platforms based around the same architecture with an extensive mix of features and low power consumption. With built-in dual-display capability using Intel® Clear Video and Intel® Dynamic Video Memory Technology, the overall graphics capability is enhanced, increasing reliability and lowering cost.

Both the new COMX-ATOM-420 COM Express module and MITX-ATOM-440 Mini-ITX motherboard are configured with a wide range of built-in devices to facilitate connectivity with standard PC interfaces, including LCD and CRT displays, SATA disks, PCI Express peripherals, Gigabit Ethernet networks and USB devices/disks. In addition, interactions between low-level hardware and operating system-level interfaces are efficiently managed by the latest-generation Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) BIOS to ensure ease of use and outstanding reliability.

COMX-ATOM-420 COM Express module
Based on the Type 2 COM Express format, the Emerson COMX–ATOM-420 module is ideal for applications that need to incorporate state-of-the-art x86-based processor and graphics technology onto a custom I/O carrier. With two SO-DIMM sockets, it can be equipped with up to 2GB of DDR2 memory and can boot from an eUSB (ZU-130) flash device for rugged applications. The module drives both LVDS and simultaneous VGA displays and can also support up to eight additional peripheral devices via on-board USB 2.0 interfaces.

MITX-ATOM-440 Mini-ITX motherboard
The Emerson MITX-ATOM-440 motherboard is based on the popular 170 by 169 millimeter Mini-ITX form factor, providing customers with the right mix of processing and graphics capabilities without compromising efficient, cost-effective design. The motherboard can be equipped with up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, expandable via additional USB flash memory. It also supports dual-display operation from a combination of VGA, LVDS and DVI interfaces as well as a built-in touch screen interface. It features a PCI Express Minicard socket for an optional wireless Ethernet module for remote connectivity and has six on-board serial ports for legacy control and monitoring applications.
