Embedded PCI Express Board Features Intel Core 2 Duo

The Intel Core 2 Duo processor powers the SOM-5782 embedded PCI Express system-on-module (SOM) board, the newest addition to Advantech’s COM-Express Series. Besides offering 16-lane PCI Express support, the board provides a special heat-spreader technology that reduces thermal design efforts. Also, the SOM-5782, which measures 95 by 125 mm, fits on a baseboard design that meets the customer’s specific application requirements. The board takes advantage of the Intel 945GM chipset, making it well-suited for system integrators who want a modular solution with a powerful graphic engine and a high data throughput.

The heat-spreader design offers a flat conductive surface across the board for thermal contact with the customer’s own heatsink or chassis, without concern for the locations of the CPU or chipset. The SOM-5782 also comes with advanced I/O capabilities that include 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet, two SATA ports, one EIDE port, eight USB 2.0 ports, and high-definition audio. The board incorporates a 200-pin SODIMM socket and Double Data Rate 2 memory of up to 2 Gbytes at speeds of 400, 533, or 667 MHz. For CRT displays, the SOM-5782 supports a DAC frequency up to 400 MHz, a 24-bit RAMDAC, DDC2B, and resolutions up to 2048 by 1536. For LCD displays, the board supports a 25- to 112-MHz single- or dual-channel LVDS interface and a maximum TFT panel of up to UXGA.


The SOM-5782 is available now.
