EOL in progress - Last time buy date: Oct. 1, 2014

The design of the MSC ETE-A945GSE module is based on Intel‘s embedded Atom™ CPU technology enabling to lower the power consumption for embedded applications to a minimum while maintaining high graphics performance. The Intel® Atom™ N270 processor with its low power consumption of only 2.5 W is ideally suited for fanless designs. Paired with the successful Intel 82945GSE the design offers high graphics performance and many I / O options.
