The MM2 is an ultra-small Computer-On-Module of the rugged ESMini family. Together with an application-specific carrier board it forms a semi-custom solution for industrial, harsh, mobile and mission-critical environments.
The small form factor board is controlled by an Intel® Atom™ processor from the E6xx series. This processor family offers high I/O flexibility as it uses the PCI Express® standard for the processor-to-chipset interface. The MM2 has a total power consumption of max. 5 to 7 W, while having a clock frequency of up to 1.6 GHz.
The MM2 accommodates up to 2 GB of directly soldered main memory. Different mass storage media are supported on the carrier board.
The MM2 offers a multitude of I/O: besides modern serial I/O like two PCI Express® x1 links, LVDS, SDVO, high-definition audio, SATA and USB, it also provides legacy I/O (1 CAN, 4 COM, 2 I2C).
The MM2 is completed by a board management controller for temperature and power supervision. It comes with a UEFI BIOS. The MM2 is screened for operation in a -40°C to +85°C temperature range (Tcase at the cover and frame). As all ESMini modules it is embedded in a covered frame. This ensures EMC protection and allows efficient conductive cooling. Air cooling is also possible by applying a heat sink on top of the cover. Where operating temperatures are moderate, the module may even do without the frame and cover, with a suitable low-power processor and airflow.
For evaluation and development purposes a microATX carrier board is available.
