A new carrier card hosts Type 2 or Type 3 COM Express modules in a small footprint of only 95 mm x 125 mm. Designed for extreme applications, the ACEX4405 from Acromag has an extra rigid PCB and extended temperature support. Features include dual ports for Gigabit Ethernet, RS-232/422 and USB plus many other features. A mini PCIe slot adds further flexibility for expanded, high-speed I/O capabilities. Locking and latching connectors prevent shock or vibration from loosening cables.

COM Express is an embedded computing standard that is becoming increasingly popular as a cost-effective solution that balances size, performance, I/O, thermal and scalability. The extremely flexible architecture allows users to select from a vast offering of processor modules and pair them with a carrier card that meets their application’s I/O requirements. The rapid deployment and long-term viability through use of interchangeable components make COM Express very appealing to the defense, aerospace, industrial automation, transportation and medical markets.

Acromag’s carrier card supports a wide variety of applications with a broad feature set. In addition to the Ethernet, serial and USB support, the ACEX4405 includes dual SATA connectors, audio and VGA video interfaces. The board also has a standard ATX power connector with LEDs for power and status indication. If additional cooling is required, the carrier provides an optional fan power interface. Scalable data storage is accommodated by a CompactFlash socket with ejector. LVDS ports are available for LCD panel display and LCD backlight control. The single quantity list price is $695.
