Innovative Embedded Platforms with Longevity and Form Fit Functions Principles (11.97MB)
A computer-on-module (COM) is a complete computer built on a single circuit board. However, unlike a single-board computer, the COM lacks the standard interfaces for input/output and connection to peripherals. These signals are brought out through standardized connectors to a custom carrier board which is designed for the specific embedded application. The COM Express standard (PICMG COM.0) is based on serial interfaces including PCI Express, SATA, USB, LVDS, and SDVO, allowing designers to utilize the latest technologies for future applications. ADLINK offers Extreme Rugged™ COM Express modules in Basic (125 x 95 mm), Compact (95 x 95 mm) and Mini (84 x 55 mm) sizes that are suited for high-end graphics applications, military computers, high speed communications and other embedded applications.
