Eurotech has released a Catalyst TC Computer on Module (COM), the next generation of low power, small form factor solutions in Eurotech's Catalyst family. It was built from the Intel atom processor E6xx series.
Catalyst TC is a highly incorporated and adaptive embedded module that provides multifarious interaction, I/O functions and multimedia abilities in a small (67 x 100 mm) footprint with high energy efficiency, thereby making it ideal for markets like industrial automation, automotive, medical, gaming, military etc.
By using Catalyst TC, interfaces like SATA, Gigabit Ethernet and CAN are provided with compact carrier board layouts, thereby enhancing the efficiency of the module. The product works well with industrial and commercial applications, supports operating systems including Windows 7, Windows Embedded Standard, Windows CE and Wind River Linux and it is compatible with Eurotech’s Everyware Software Framework with an IDE environment that simplifies application development and is Java-based.
Haritha Treadway, Product Manager for Eurotech, has stated that their company will continue with the creation of highly efficient embedded systems that consume low power. It was also reported that they had made use of all the features of the new Intel atom processor for developing a robust embedded product, thereby helping their Catalyst products to flourish in the recent market.
Jonathan Luse, Director of Marketing for the Intel Low Power Embedded Products Division, said that the adaptive nature of Eurotech Catalyst TC helps in providing rapid and inexpensive solutions for the tough embedded market sectors.
Catalyst TC was showcased at the Intel Developers Forum, which was held from September 13 to 15 at San Francisco's Moscone Center West. It was reported that the product can be availed by the end of this year.
