DisplayPort Comes to CompactPCI Embedded Board

A 3U CompactPCI multicore board with the CP308-MEDIA extension card is one of the first embedded products to feature the new high-definition digital display interface standard, DisplayPort. With S/P-DIF-Out audio and the stereo audio ports for Line In, Line Out and Microphone, the processor board with the KCP308-MEDIA card from Kontron adds extensive multimedia capabilities to embedded computing.

The CP308-MEDIA features the 45nm Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at up to 2.26 GHz, the most powerful embedded Intel GS45 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub, up to 8 Gbytes of energy-efficient DDR3 RAM, and the Intel I/O Controller Hub ICH9M. With its excellent computing and multimedia performance, it is aimed at applications such as: digital signage, passenger information and entertainment, process and quality control, surveillance and security.

The CP308-MEDIA features two DisplayPort interfaces on the front for direct-drive, end-to-end communication between the board and different panels. Compared to DVI or LVDS, DisplayPort reduces cabling, connector footprint and minimizes the need for additional monitor electronics for panel control. Furthermore, the latching DisplayPort connector guarantees utmost mechanical stability. With conventional adapters, DisplayPort also connects to HDMI, DVI or VGA monitors. The optical S/P-DIF-Out transmits digital Intel HD Audio. Analog audio signals are transmitted via the stereo audio ports for Line In, Line Out and Microphone. On board the CP308-MEDIA features connectors for COM, SATA, a SD/SDHC socket, a CompactFlash socket and a Mini PCI Express socket. Extending the CP308-MEDIA via an additional Mini PCI Express device like WLAN, GPRS, Network or SSD, the CPU board offers maximum flexibility. The Kontron CP308-MEDIA runs with Linux, Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or XP embedded; the upcoming Windows 7 will also be supported. Highly integrated board support packages support all onboard hardware devices.
