A COM Express module in Compact form factor measures just 95 x 95 millimeters, and is fully compatible with the Type 2 pin-out of the PICMG COM Express specification. The Express-LPC from Adlink is positioned as an entry level, cost-effective module with a high performance-per-watt ratio (MIPS, FLOPS). It typically targets calculation-intensive applications such as robotics, test and measurement, entry level medical diagnostics and industrial automation. The Express-LPC is an attractive replacement for existing Pentium M-based designs, offering better performance at a lower price and much lower power envelope.

The Express-LPC is based on the latest Intel Atom processors ranging from the dual core D525 at 1.8 GHz to the low voltage single core N455 at 1.66 GHz. The module supports up to 4 Gbyte of DDR3 memory on two SODIMM sockets. In addition to an increase in memory bandwidth compared with DDR2, the DDR3 memory support also brings a significant cost advantage and the certainty of reliable supplies well into the future. The module is equipped with integrated graphics support for analog VGA and LVDS. The module supports five PCI Express x1 lanes via the Intel I/O Controller Hub 8 Mobile chipset (ICH8M), one Gigabit Ethernet connection and three SATA channels. Legacy support is provided by a single Parallel ATA channel, 32-bit PCI bus and Low Pin Count bus (LPC).

The Express-LPC is available with an onboard IDE-based Solid State Drive (SSD) up to 8 Gbyte, and comes standard with an integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) to provide secure storage of encryption keys for system and data protection. The module is equipped with AMIBIOS8, supporting embedded features such as Remote Console, CMOS backup, CPU and System Monitoring, Watchdog Timer and OEM Splash Screen. Optimized for portable and mobile applications, the BIOS supports ACPI-based Smart Battery functionality for single or dual battery subsystems. Single quantity pricing starts at $249.
