MEN Mikro CM10 - Rugged COM Express with Sitara ARM Cortex-A15

PICMG COM.0 COM Express Mini form factor


The CM10 is a low-power COM Express Mini module built around the TI Sitara ARM Cortex-A15 AM57xx series of processors with or without graphics support.

Low-Power, High-Performance Processor

Processor versions with graphics support (only AM57x8) offer 1080p HD video acceleration, dual 3D graphics and single 2D graphics options for an enhanced user interface.

The processor series features scalable single/dual Cortex- A15 and C66x DSP processors as well as a quad-core PRUand dual Cortex-M4 for real-time, deterministic control.

Wide Range of I/O, Small Space

A wide range of standard I/O is supported by the processor which makes it possible to implement many functions on a very small form factor.

The CM10 is mechanically compliant to the COM Express Mini format. Due to the multitude of I/O offered by the ARM Cortex-A15 processor, however, the pin assignment differs from the standard COM Express type 10.

Rugged for Harsh Environments

The exclusive use of soldered components ensures that the COM withstands shock and vibration. The design is optimised for conformal coating making it ideally suited for rugged environments. A VITA 59 (Rugged COM Express) version is available on request. Due to its low power consumption, the module can be operated without fans and in the extended temperature range of -40°C up to +85°C. The processor’s long-term
availability ensures future-safety for a wide range of applications.
