Avalue Releases New Menlow Platform Embedded Computing Boards
For XTX CPU Module, 3.5-inch Micro Module and Nano-ITX Motherboard

August, 2009. Taipei, Taiwan

Avalue is releasing Atom-powered Z5xx embedded computing boards, including XTX CPU module, 3.5-inch SBC, and Nano-ITX mainboard. Based on 45nm technology, Intel-named embedded Menlow platform features the two-chip platform which consists of an Atom™ Z5xx processor and the SCH US15W chipset, delivering ultra small-footprint and extremely low power and thermal. Additionally, its affordable price and fanless structure of Avalue’s US15WP Series can cost down expenses of assembling and follow-up maintenance for designers.


Avalue’s XTX-US15WP is the pioneer of XTX module incorporated with eMenlow platform in the market. The XTX is an extension of ETX form factor. The x2 connector on XTX has advanced functions such as PCIe, SATA, LPC Interface, digital audio and USB. The XTX-US15WP has two LVDS signals for dual display, and a Micro-SD slot on the module for more flexible expansion.
