New board brings state-of-the-art PC technology to small form factor computing.

MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, now offers the CB70C, a high performance, Intel Core i7-based Rugged COM Express module for robust, mission-critical operations.

The CB70C’s VITA 59: RCE design combines with advanced Intel processors to provide state-of-the-art PC technology in a rugged small form factor with scalable performance using 1, 2 or 4 processing cores, depending on system requirements.

The Intel Core i7 family provides a core frequency of up to 1.2 GHz and a Turbo Boost frequency of 3.1 GHz.  The processors also support Intel AMT, Open CL 1.1 and high end graphics. 

The BIOS with integrated AMT support can be easily and cost-effectively adapted to the final application.  A board management controller supervises board functions and temperatures.

The new module offers a number of I/O interfaces including PCI Express, LVDS, DDI, VGA, HD audio, SATA, Ethernet and USB for exceptional flexibility in system design. The board boasts up to 16 GB of directly soldered main memory and supports other memory like USB Flash on the carrier board.  The CB70C is compatible with COM Express Basic modules of pin-out Type 6.

VITA 59 RCE: Rugged COM Express, currently in preparation, ruggedizes the common and well-accepted computer-on-module concept to enable this cost-effective technology to be employed in harsh environments and applications. 

Embedded in a conduction-cooled cover and frame with a thermal connection to the PCB, the CB70C operates over a wide temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.  This secure cover also provides 100% EMC protection as well as resistance to high levels of shock, vibration, dust, humidity and chemicals.
