Congatec conga-ELX

Low powered but high performance

Manufacturer: congatec
Congatec conga-ELX

The conga-ELX is a highly integrated and fast PC module with extremely low power consumption. It uses the popular AMD LX800 processor, which due to a 0.9W TDP, can run fanless even at the high end of the board's temperature range. The board supports up to 1GB of DDR memory (via SODIMM). The conga-ELX offers the usual ETX features - sound, Ethernet, quad USB2.0, graphics, AC97 sound.

A CompactFlash™ socket is fitted to the conga-ELX supporting up to 256GB cards. For further expansions two IDE ports with Ultra66 DMA capabilities are available. They do not provide the PCI bus only, the ISA bus signals are also available. A lot of existing ISA boards can still be used via an ISA slot on a baseboard. This avoids expensive redesigns and well proven ISA cards to PCI versions for standard PC motherboards.
