  • Up to 8GB DDR3 SO-DIMM SDRAM
  • PC/104-Plus (ISA & PCI) expansion bus
  • -40°C to +85°C or -20°C to +71°C operating temperature
Pluto is a high performance, highly integrated board-level embedded-ready subsystem that matches the footprint of the popular ETX computer-on-module (COM) standard.

Pluto’s CPU core consists of an ETX CPU module mounted on its bottom side, and is available with your choice of different power/performance CPUs. Pluto utilizes conduction cooling for improved ruggedness and reliability through the use of a heatspreader, improving thermal management and increasing the space for I/O functions and connectors. This innovative design has enabled Pluto to integrate additional serial and Ethernet controllers, a complete set of peripheral interface header connectors, and a PC/104-Plus expansion stack location — all within the compact ETX footprint. Four mounting holes on the bottom of the conduction cooled heatspreader are provided to mount Pluto in an enclosure or to a bulkhead. These mounting holes are #6-32 threaded holes on 2.8″ centers.

Choice of CPUs:
  • 1.91GHz Intel Bay Trail E3845
  • 1.65GHz AMD Fusion G-T56N
  • 1.0GHz AMD Fustion G-T40N
Pluto is offered in a range of models that vary according to the choice of ETX CPU module and on-board SO-DIMM SDRAM capacity. A choice of ETX COMs offers scalable performance for your application as well as protection from obsolescence through plug compatible CPU modules. It can be used either as a highly integrated embedded component, or as a platform for application development and reference designs.

Pluto’s baseboard includes connectors and interfaces for keyboard, mouse, USB, serial, parallel, Ethernet, sound, various mass storage devices. It supports the connection of a wide variety of displays, including CRTs, 18-bit or 24-bit LVDS-interfaced flat panels, and televisions. Power is supplied by means of a robust six-pin terminal block.
