RISC-based COM with integrated graphics EB8347, a new, which was published 6 347 processor (or optionally the MPC8347E) with Security Engine; with features including an integrated DVI graphics.

For the first time, E²Brain-based RISC system: sophisticated HMI, and real-time controls. With this level of functionality, the EB8347 is even in harsh environments an ideal alternative for x86-based l power consumption, °C (optionally -40°C to potential applications for the new E2Brain module can be found in the automation, medical technology, energy, defence, or transportation and automotive industries, to name but a few. Examples in the transportation even yachts.

Due to the core competences and besides the attractive MPC8347 processor with integrated user interfaces, the E2Brain EB8347 boasts two functional features include and configuration data, 4 serial ports (2 terminal ports Rx/Tx, 4x 16550-compatible), an AC97 audio interface, and an interface for CompactFlash storage cards (slot on the carrier board).

Furthermore, RTC, Watchdog, and temperature sensors are on board. The board requires only a single 3.3 volt power supply.

An operating system-independent boot loader with network support and a Linux and VxWorks board support package are available as software support. In-system programming is possible via an SPI interface (Serial Peripheral Interface). A JTAG/BDM interface for debugging and on-board programming round out the feature set for the developer.

The E²Brain EB8347 will be available from April 2006 and evaluation baseboards will also be made available at this time.

In time for the Embedded World exhibition, Kontron Modular Computers introduces Computer-On-Module that complies with the E²Brain standard for RISC-based COMs months ago.

The E²Brain (Embedded Electronic Brain) EB8347 is based on Freescale’s MPC8port, TTL flat panel interface, two USB 2.0 ports (480 Mbit/s) and 1008 MIPS @ 533 MH, two functions can be integrated into COMs.

The virtues of RISC shine through: perfect computing power with minimal robust mechanical design with an extended temperature range of 0°C to 70+85°) and availability of seven years or more. industry include cockpit computers in cars and trains, construction machinery, for maturity of the module technology, OEMs that use the EB8347 can concentrate on them and significantly reduce their time to market.

Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and up to 256MB directly soldered fast DDR-SDRAM. Add it up to 64MB Flash, E²Prom for use expansions are connected via LPC and/or 32 bit, 33/66 MHz PCI bus interface.

About E²Brain modules (Embedded Electronic Brain) E2Brain is the first open standard for RISC-based computer-on-modules (COby the E2Brain Interest Group, founded at the end of 2005.

Besides the EB8347, Kontron modules include evaluation kits. Other requirement-oriented E2Brain modules are made available by members of the interest group, second source, as needed.

With theE2Brain COMs, users no longer need to develop a new processor core for every Kontron Asia- it creates digital brains for a more intelligent world which is supported and has six more E2Brain development, or will be the use of standardised device development.

The concept, is scalable as interfaces, and I/O interfaces and supplies a diversified test and safety, reduce their time-to-market and to gain a competitive advantage with products including high-performance open computer platforms and systems, single board computers, human-machine interfaces and mobile rugged computers.
