Acromag Receives Editor’s Choice Award from Military Embedded Systems for Rugged COM Express Carrier Cards
Acromag is honored to have their ACEX-4600 series of COM Express Type 6 carrier cards selected as Editor’s Choice products for the April 2014 issue of Military Embedded Systems magazine.
WIXOM, Mich., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Acromag’s ACEX-4600 carrier cards target small form factor computing applications. As written in Military Embedded Systems, “The devices meet wide temperature operation and shock/vibration immunity and come in two models that can host a basic size COM Express module and have an option for one or two PMC/XMC modules for I/O or FPGA processing tasks. All models have two mini-PCIe slots. The ACEX-4610 model interfaces a basic Type 6 COM Express module, two mini-PCIe slots, and a PMC/XMC in a 125×165 mm footprint. The device’s engineering design kit has a break-out board that routes all the I/O signals from the carrier’s high-density connector to standard peripheral connectors. Adding a second PMC/XMC slot, the ACEX-4620 is slightly larger with 200×165 mm Mini-ITX dimensions.
“For ruggedization, thicker circuit boards resist flex while industrial-grade components enable operation from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C. Front panels with military connectors and a power filter plug into the carrier card. Two gigabit LAN ports, a PCIe port, four USB ports, and two RS232/485 ports provide flexible network and serial communication options. The carriers also support as many as three DVI-I video ports and an audio in/out interface. A fused, onboard DC/DC converter accepts 10-32V DC input power.”
