WIXOM, Mich., 26 Oct. 2012. Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the rugged ACEX4405 COM Express carrier card for defense, aerospace, industrial automation, transportation, and medical applications. COM Express is an embedded computing standard that balances size, performance, I/O, thermal, and scalability.

The ACEX4405 embedded computing carrier card hosts Type 2 or Type 3 COM Express modules that measure 95 by 125 millimeters, and have extra-rigid circuit boards and extended temperature support.

Features include dual ports for Gigabit Ethernet, RS232/422, and USB. A mini PCI Express slot adds high-speed I/O capabilities. Locking and latching connectors prevent shock or vibration from loosening cables.

Users can select from several processor modules and pair them with a carrier card that meets their application's I/O requirements. The ACEX4405 includes dual SATA connectors, audio, and VGA video interfaces. The board also has a standard ATX power connector with LEDs for power and status indication.
