Embedded Technology Extended (ETX)

ETX CPU modules are compact, highly integrated computers with the standard form factor and standardized connector layout and carry the specified set of signals. Due to its “plug-in” advantage which allows users to build different baseboards to host the same ETX CPU module, the adoption of the ETX form factor reduces manufacturers’ time to market for different applications, eliminates cabling headaches and achieves cost-saving purpose on system-level development.

ICOP Launches ETX Solution, VDX3-ETX

The VDX3-ETX is a low-power CPU module which compliant with ETX standards. Adopt a 114 x 95 mm basic size specification, supports Vortex86DX3 generation processors and provides scalable solutions that can meet customers' further application development needs and shorten the market time.

The VDX3-ETX modules have excellent I/O capabilities and comply with ISA and PCI specifications and support the concept of embedded plug-in CPU modules, helping to simplify product development processes and shortening time to market. It takes advantage of the Vortex86DX3 1GHz x86 CPU, which integrates the PCIe, IDE, I2C, VGA, LVDS, PS/2, USB, HD Audio, and even 16-bit ISA bus support.

The VDX3-ETX is designed as a plug-in replacement, with backward compatibility to support legacy software to extend the existing product life cycle without heavy re-engineering.

 


Notes:

  • Printer: Optional. As the limitation of Vortex86DX3, Primary IDE and Printer can't be used at the same time.
    The default hardware configuration is IDE and please consult with ICOP if you need Printer.
  • TV-out: Optional, please contact ICOP if you need to use TV-out.
  • Floppy: Floppy is not available on this module.
  • S IDE: Secondary IDE signals are not available through connects of VDX3-ETX. On VDX3-ETX module, the secondary IDE signal will be available in the form of SATA.
