COM Express Mini module
MEN Mikro Elektronik’s CM10 is a COM Express Mini module developed around TI Sitara ARM Cortex-A15 processors. With its low power consumption, it can be operated without fans.
The TI Sitara ARM Cortex-A15 processor series provides scalable processors and supports a range of I/Os, which makes it possible to implement a range of functions on a small form factor. The CM10 COM Express Mini module provides 2 CAN, 2 GiB Ethernet, and two PCI Express interfaces, as well as SATA, USB, UARTs, video, audio, and also a SD card interface. This makes this COM module as variable as its potential operating areas.
The module is suitable for industrial communication, IoT and gateway applications, as well as for mobile medical units or applications with more graphic requirements such as passenger information systems or ticketing machines. If needed for graphics, the CM10 comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, HD video, and both 3D and 2D graphic options.
Due to its low power consumption, the module can be operated without fans and in the extended temperature range of -40 °C up to +85 °C. The processor’s long-term availability aims to ensure future security for a range of applications. The module is mechanically compliant to the COM Express Mini format. Due to the multitude of I/Os offered by the ARM Cortex-A15 processor, the pin assignment differs from the standard COM Express type 10. For mobile applications, the module comes with soldered components to withstand shock and vibration and all components are prepared for conformal coating.
