Overview

The COM Express mainboard MB-COME-1 in combination with a standard COM Express module forms a very compact hardware kit that can be used for a freely scalable embedded PC platform thanks to its modular design. Because of this – with uniform interfaces and mechanical dimensions – the PC system can be easily adjusted to suit the requirements of the application. The many extension options and storage media that can be added offer a high level of flexibility and allow functionalities and performance to be extended easily, quickly and inexpensively. Typical uses are found in embedded server applications, PC systems for automation, visualisation and monitoring and all applications that place high demands on quality, durability and long-term availability. 

Flexibility due to modular design

The basic building block consists of:

  • Thermal interface
  • COM Express CPU module (Type 2)
  • DDR3 RAM
  • Mainboard MB-COME-1L

Scalable through the use of
different COM Express CPU modules

DatasheetEBB Embedded-PC chassis (German)

Manufacturerapra-norm

Source of supply: TQ / apra-norm (Article#: 205-400-00)

For the installation of the COMKits in standard Mini-ITX housing the following assembly set is provided:

COMSet-Mini-ITX

consisting of

  • Standard IO shield for COMKits
  • Distance bolts (M3) and screws (M3) for the 22mm stand-off inside the Mini-ITX housing
  • UNC fixing bolts for Sub-D and DVI connector

Manufacturer: TQ

Note:

Especially when having very compact housings, the mechanical integration options have to be verified by the user, as a collision with the fixing clamps may occur (depending on the housing construction).

.

 

Power units

The power supply of the COMKits corresponds to standard-ATX (20 pin), so that standard ATX power units may be used.

For a preferably compact construction and for the integration in the housings from apra-norm, that are especially developed for the Embedded Building Blocks, the following power units fit best:

picoPSU power unit series

Miniatur DC/DC ATX power unit

Available with different output classes and input voltages.

For running on system voltages (e.g. 230V) an external AC/DC power unit is additionally required.

Please note the detailed specifications of the manufacturer (voltages, currents, installation notes). Additional bundles consisting of picoPSU power unit and AC/DC power unit are provided from divers supplier.

Notes:

For running the COMKits the 80W variant (picoPSU-80 respectively picoPSU-80-WI-32) is sufficient, unless the supply voltage is strongly loaded by additional components. For systems with CPU power dissipation of 35 W and higher please use the 120 W variant (picoPSU-120 respectively picoPSU-120-WI-25).

At TQ the picoPSU-80, picoPSU-80-WI-32, picoPSU-120 and picoPSU-120-WI-25 variants have been employed until now.

Storage media / Mass storage

Standard mass storage (2,5" SATA HDD / 2,5" SATA SDD, CompactFlash, CFast Flash-Cards and USB-Flash-Drives) may be employed for COMKits.

All tested storage media have not shown any technical concerns until now. A compatibility list is not yet available.

 

For harsh environments and raised temperature requirements it is recommended to employ flash based storage media. Especially for passive cooled systems, that are set up with closed housings, flash based storage media should be used. Those storage media have definite less self-heating than hard disks (HDDs) and therefore Hot-Spots in closed housings may be avoided.

 

When using hard disks it should be paid attention to the fact that for applications with raised requirements regarding temperature, permanent operation, life time and reliability models are needed that are specified for "Industrial" respectively "Automotive".
