COLUMBIA, USA: Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems, announced plans to launch the next generation of modules in the Catalyst series of embedded computers.
The Catalyst CV, based on the Intel Atom processor N2000 series, will offer significant benefits to customers looking for dual-core performance capabilities with enhanced multimedia, and a greater choice of operating environments, all while still maintaining very low power consumption. The module will be available in the 67 x 100 mm form factor that is the trademark of Eurotech's Catalyst platform. With advanced feature specifications for performance, graphics, power, and size, the Catalyst CV is ideal for the next generation of devices in medical, industrial, gaming, digital signage, and automotive markets.
The dual-core Intel Atom processor N2000 series that reside at the core of the Catalyst CV help support CPU speeds of 1.6GHz, DDR3 memory, and I/O capabilities such as USB 2.0, PCIe expansion buses, Ethernet, and wireless. OEMs have a range of operating environments to choose from, including Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Embedded Compact 7, and Wind River Linux and other general Linux distributions.
Furthermore, with the ability to port Eurotech's Everyware Software Framework (ESF) and Everyware Device Cloud (EDC) services, OEMs will receive a true end-to-end solution that is scalable and portable for an optimized product lifecycle.
"The Catalyst CV platform showcases our low-power expertise without sacrificing any of the capabilities and features customers want from this new Intel Atom processor series," says Haritha Treadway, product manager for Eurotech in North America. "This announcement is another example of our commitment to working with partners like Intel to bring the latest technologies to our customers. Further, with the Catalyst CV OEMs will have a low-power, dual-core hardware platform on which to leverage our end-to-end services such as ESF and EDC."
"The Intel Atom processor N2000 series offers dual-core processing power, a large selection of operating environments, and the next generation of multimedia interfaces," says Jonathan Luse, director of marketing in the Intel Intelligent Systems Group. "The combination of low power consumption and strong graphics performance is ideal for rich media applications running on fanless systems, such as retail point-of-sale devices, digital signage, and medical systems."
The Catalyst CV will be available in Q2 2012. Eurotech will offer application-ready development platforms to help OEMs write their applications quickly and effortlessly.
