MEN Mikro CC10C - Rugged COM Express® (VITA 59 RCE) with ARM® i.MX 6

Quad-Core Processor, COM Express® Compact Compatible


The CC10C is a Rugged COM Express® module (RCE) built around the Freescale™ ARM® i.MX 6 series of processors with a Cortex®-A9 architecture. Supporting different types of the i.MX 6Solo, 6DualLite, 6Dual and 6Quad families, the computer-on-module is widely
scalable, e.g., to processing or graphics requirements. Where less performance is needed, you can optimize costs by choosing a single- or dual-core processor instead of a quad core. 

Rugged COM Express® modules are 100% compatibleto COM Express® but conform to the new VITA 59 standard (in process) which specifies the mechanics to make COM Express® modules suitable for operation in harsh environments. The CC10C is based on the
"Compact", 95 x 95 mm form factor and Type 6 connector pin-out, and can even be semi-customized to become a standard COM Express® module, without much additional design effort.

With RCE-compliant mechanics for conduction cooling, the module's size extends to 105 x 105 mm. It is embedded in a covered frame ensuring EMC protection and allowing efficient conductive cooling. Air cooling is also possible by applying a heat sink on
top of the cover. Its optimized mechanics let the CC10C support an extended operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C. The exclusive use of soldered components ensures that the COM withstands shock and vibration. The design is optimized for conformal

Adding to its rugged design, the computer-on-module's range of supported functions leave almost nothing to wish for. With a maximum of 4 GB DDR3 RAM and an onboard eMMC device, the CC10C covers all basic memory needs. 3-Gbit SATA is provided for external mass storage. 

One of the biggest strengths of the CC10C lies in its I/O flexibility. The i. MX 6 provides an abundance of onchip controllers and interfaces, including Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 (also with OTG/client support) and PCI Express®. Different video outputs like LVDS and HDMI/DVI, audio and an optional camera interface make the card fit for multimedia applications. Other serial ports provide UARTs or CAN bus. Where the processor's standard functions are not a perfect match, an onboard FPGA opens up 140 signal pins for user I/O. As IP cores are easy to integrate, the CC10C becomes a semi-custom solution with the suitable functionality even for more specialized applications. The resulting I/O functionality in the ordered version depends on the customer's requirements and will always be a tailored combination of i.MX 6 and FPGA-based I/O, without the need for a completely new design.

For evaluation and development purposes a microATX carrier board, the XC15, is available.
