The ETX-CV is an ETX v3.02 compliant module specially designed to facilitate speedy development of semi custom designs. ETX is an open standard that targets the market for embedded OEM projects. An ETX core combined with a custom made carrier board represents a value solution that allows OEM customers to get to the market fast. The new ETX v3.02 specification adds SATA support to ETX in the form of two connectors on the module itself, leaving the ETX board-to-board interface 100% compatible with baseboards designed under the earlier ETX v2.xx specification.

The ETX-CV is positioned as an entry level ETX module for generic systems but also for systems requiring a full set of graphics features. The module comes with integrated support for high VGA up to 1920×1200 resolution (WUXGA), single/dual channel 18/24-bit LVDS and onboard DisplayPort connector.

The ETX-CV conforms to the latest ETX® 3.02 specification and provides two additional onboard SATA connectors while maintaining full backward compatibility with earlier ETX® standards.

Operating system support includes Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded, Windows 7, WinCE,and Linux. Primary focus is for applications in Medical Diagnostics and Imaging, Gaming, Industrial Automation, Test and Measurement, POS, and Industrial Control.

The dual-core Intel® Atom™ Processor N2000 and D2000 Series on the ETX-CV replaces the previous generation Intel® Atom™ processors N4xx/N5xx. Although much smaller in size, Intel® Atom™ processors share the same architecture as Intel® Core™2 Duo processors and additionally support Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology, allowing more than one code thread to be executed at the same time on a single core. The ETX-CV’s thermal design and powerful CPU core allow it to provide the same or even better performance than earlier generation modules at a more modest power consumption.

The ETX-CV supports up to 4 GB of DDR3 memory on a single SODIMM, incorporates an Intel 10/100BASE-T Ethernet controller, and provides dual channel IDE, two channels SATA, four USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, one parallel port shared with floppy, one PS/2 keyboard/mouse interface and HD audio.

The ETX-CV fully supports PCI and legacy ISA based on high speed PCI/ISA bridge and is equipped with an AMI Aptio BIOS supporting embedded features such as Remote Console, CMOS backup for battery-less operation, CPU and System Monitoring and Watchdog Timer.
