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.
Pluto’s CPU core consists of an ETX CPU module mounted on its bottom side, and is available with your choice of different power/performance CPUs. 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.
