Congatec has introduced several COM Express modules built with Intel’s 3rd-generation Celeron processors. The new Conga-BS77 and Conga-TS77 COM (computer-on-module) products are equipped with a range of single- and dual-core Celeron CPUs, clocked at up to 2.2GHz.
The Conga-BS77 and Conga-TS77 modules comply with COM Express Type 2 and Type 6 standards, respectively. Both conform to the COM Express “Basic” form-factor, measuring 125 x 95 mm. In addition to their 3rd-generation Celeron processors, the new modules integrate Intel’s new mobile HM76 Express chipset, and support up to 16GB DDR3 of SODIMM memory.

Each of these new COM models is offered with a choice of 3rd-Generation Intel Celeron processors:
- Dual-Core Celeron 1020E (2M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 35W TDP)
- Dual-core Celeron 1047UE (2M Cache, 1.40 GHz, 17W TDP)
- Single-core Celeron 927UE (1M cache, 1.50 GHz, 17W TDP).
Interface signals available on both modules’ high-density bus connectors include 7x PCIe 2.0 x1 lanes, 4x 6Gb/s SATA ports, Gbit Ethernet, LPC bus, I2C, Intel High Definition Audio, LVDS (2×24), VGA, 3x DisplayPort, and 3x HDMI. The two modules each provide one additional video interface: the Conga-BP77 adds a PCI Express Graphics 3.0 (PEG) x16 interface; on the other hand, the Conga-BS77 adds SDVO (but not PEG).

Congatec says it supports SUSE and Ubuntu Linux across all of its COM (computer-on-module) products, and in the event special drivers are needed (e.g. for functions such as Ethernet), the company provides it for download from its website. Congatec’s COMs also implement a “CGOS API” (Congatec operating system application program interface), through which various board functions can be accessed from Linux, Windows CE, VxWorks, and QNX.
The new Conga-BS77 and Conga-TS77 module versions are in addition to previously released models featuring single-, dual-, and quad-core Intel Core and Celeron processors, clocked at up to 2.5 GHz. For further information, visit Congatec’s website, here.
