Description

Pluto is a high performance, highly integrated board-level embedded-ready subsystem that matches the footprint of the popular ETX computer-on-module (COM) standard. The use of interchangeable COM Express modules helps extend product lifecycles or keep up with new market needs by making it easy to replace an obsolete CPU or increase processing performance simply by replacing the COM module.

Pluto's Intel Bay Trail E3845 1.91GHz CPU core consists of an ETX CPU module mounted on its bottom side. Pluto utilizes conduction cooling for improved ruggedness and reliability through the use of a heatspreader, improving thermal management and increasing the space for I/O functions and connectors. This innovative design has enabled Pluto to integrate additional serial and Ethernet controllers, a complete set of peripheral interface header connectors, and a PC/104-Plus expansion stack location - all within the compact ETX footprint. Four mounting holes on the bottom of the conduction cooled heatspreader are provided to mount Pluto in an enclosure or to a bulkhead. These mounting holes are #6-32 threaded holes on 2.8" centers.

Pluto is offered with two models with 8G or 4G on-board SO-DIMM SDRAM capacity. Pluto can be used either as a highly integrated embedded component, or as a platform for application development and reference designs.

Pluto's baseboard includes connectors and interfaces for keyboard, mouse, USB, serial, parallel, Ethernet, sound, various mass storage devices. It supports the connection of a wide variety of displays, including CRTs, 18-bit or 24-bit LVDS-interfaced flat panels, and televisions. Power is supplied by means of a robust six-pin terminal block.
