New Emerson Network Power COM Express Modules Feature Second Generation Intel Core Processors 

Extended temperature variants enable exceptional performance for harsh environments in defense, aerospace and automation industries

NUREMBERG, Germany [28 February, 2012] – At the Embedded World trade fair today, Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, announced a new series of COM Express® modules based on the second generation Intel Core processors to enable original equipment manufacturers to create application-specific, high-performance embedded PC solutions. Extended temperature variants will enable these new modules to provide the performance and reliability needed in the rugged environments into which embedded computing technology is now being deployed in defense, aerospace and automation industries.

Emerson Network Power COMX-CORE-2000 series modules are compliant with the latest COM Express R2.0 specification to support the long life cycles that are critical to many applications that use these embedded modules. Already widely adopted in the industrial automation and medical markets, these latest COM Express modules incorporate new functionality for improved security and management. The second generation Intel Core processors are especially suitable for embedded applications due to their improved performance/ power ratio and small form factor.

COMX-CORE-2000 modules have a wide range of interfaces to connect to standard peripherals and to carrier mounted I/O. These include LCD and CRT displays, SATA, PCI Express devices, USB and Gigabit Ethernet networks. Some of the target applications are in environments that preclude using physical disks and so COMX-CORE-2000 modules have the capability to use and boot from both SATA Solid State Disks and eUSB flash disks, available up to 16GB capacity. 

At launch, Emerson Network Power is offering two variants, both of which are based on Intel Core i7 technology. COMX-CORE-2715 uses a quad core processor for ultimate performance within this small form factor whilst COMX-CORE-2610ET is suitable for extended temperature operation. The COMX-CORE-2000 series modules are designed and manufactured by Emerson for superior reliability and world-wide support.
