Ka-Ro electronics GmbH was founded in 1988 by two Electro Engineering students in Aachen, Germany. Ka-Ro electronics GmbH produces the TX family of Computer on Modules with ARM® processors from Freescale, Texas Instruments and Atmel, including customised operating system support based on both Microsoft Windows® Embedded and Linux®
The TX embedded module integrates all the core components of a common PC and is mounted onto an application specific carrier board. TX modules have a standardised form factor of 67,6mm x 26mm, have specified pinouts and provide the functional requirements for an embedded application. These functions include, but are not limited to, graphics, network and multiple USB ports. A single ruggedised SO-DIMM connector provides the carrier board interface to carry all the I/O signals to and from the TX module. This SO-DIMM connector is a well known and proven high speed signal interface connector that is commonly used for memory cards in notebooks.
