Anders has announced the release of its all new Tunnel Creek Module.

Using the power and flexibility of the Intel Atom-based E620 / E680 system on a chip, designed especially for embedded devices, the Anders CM-iTC SoC is ideal for battery operated handheld diagnostic equipment, mobile internet devices, and other low-power, graphics-intensive applications.

The Intel Atom-based E600-series SoC (originally code-named Tunnel Creek) was designed especially for embedded applications and straightforward consumer electronics like IP phones, mobile internet devices, and in-car entertainment systems. The CM-iTC harnesses the power of the E600-series, marrying it with the EG20T Platform Controller Hub (PCH), which adds a wealth of I/O options.

The CM-iTC features an Intel Atom E620/E680 CPU, DDR2, micro SD based internal storage, bootable SD card support (up to 32 GB), and vital computing peripherals. For embedded applications, the CM-iTC provides a variety of display interfaces, two SATA interfaces, PCIexpress buses, two 1000Mbit Ethernet ports, 4 serial ports, 6 USB host and 1 slave ports (allowing adhoc connections, or simple synchronisation with other computers), CAN with IEEE1588 support ,SPI, two I2C, general purpose I/O lines and many other essential functions.

The user interface is supported by an enhanced graphics controller, USB interface for keyboard/mouse and audio system. With power consumption for handheld devices in mind, the CM-iTC offers on-board power management, and the system is approved for use in a wide range of temperature environments (from -40°C to 85°C).

“The CM-iTC is a unique addition to our computer-on-module portfolio, in that it was conceived and designed to add crucial computing power and connectivity to day-to-day devices,” said Rhett Evans, Embedded Modules Product Manager. “Combining the power of the Intel E600-series with the EG20T has created a SoC that delivers maximum computing and graphics performance, without compromising on power management or portability,” he concluded.
