The Express-MG is a COM Express compliant module specially designed to facilitate speedy
development of semi-custom designs. The COM Express standard embodies the convergence of the latest technology standards based on serial differential signaling such as PCI Express, USB 2.0, SATA, LVDS and Serial DVO implemented on a compact, 95mm x 125mm, Computer-on-Module. Signals are brought out through two 220-pin board-to-board connectors that permit data transmission rates of up to 5GHz. Mounting holes connect the module with a custom-made, application specific carrier boards which provide protection from shock and vibration.
The Express-MG combines a socket type Penryn Core™2 Duo CPU with Intel's Mobile GM45 Express Chipset. The chipset consisting of GM45/ICH9M North- and Southbridge supports up to 8 GB, dual channel DDR3 800/1066MHz memory on two stacked SODIMM sockets.
The Mobile Intel® GM45 Express chipset integrates a Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD that provides CRT, single/dual channel 24-bit LVDS and TV-out (SDTV and HDTV). The GMA 4500MHD includes support for DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0, and provides an increase in performance over previous chipsets. Intel® Clear Video
Technology together with HDCP support allows for smooth Blu-Ray playback. In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, a PCI Express x16 graphics link is available for connection to high end PCI Express x16 graphics chipsets or general purpose x8, x4 or x1 PCI Express devices. The PCI Express Graphics (PEG) x16 bus pinout can alternatively be used for two SDVO, two HDMI or three DisplayPort interfaces to connect to DVI, TMDS or TV-out device controllers.
The module comes with a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port and four SATA ports. It has
optional legacy IDE support through a SATA-to-PATA controller, 32-bit PCI and LPC. The module allows connection of up to five additional PCI Express x1 devices on the Southbridge.
The Express-MG comes equipped with a AMIBIOS®8 and supports many embedded features
such as remote console, CMOS backup, CPU and system monitoring, watchdog timer for NMI
or RESET, operation over battery power, and extended power modes.
