Conduction- or air-cooled Mini COM Express embedded computing module introduced by X-ES

MIDDLETON, Wis., 14 Oct. 2012. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPedite5650 conduction- or air-cooled Mini COM Express embedded computing module for military embedded systems, as well as for industrial and communications applications where size, weight, and power (SWaP) are primary design considerations.

The XPedite5650 single-board computer, which measures 55 by 84 millimeters, supports the Freescale QorIQ P2041 quad-core processor, four gigabytes of memory, a ruggedized design, and is designed and tested for harsh military, aerospace, and industrial environments.

The rugged computer board is designed and tested for operation from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, includes additional mounting holes for increased structural integrity, provides extended shock and vibration, soldered-down memory, tin-lead soldering, and offers built-in test (BIT).

The XPedite5650 also has two Gigabit Ethernet ports (one 1000BASE-T and one 1000BASE-X), two serial ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and two SATA 3.0 ports. Linux, Wind River VxWorks, and Green Hills INTEGRITY operating system software are available.

An XPand6000 series system can be bolted to almost any available surface of a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), ground vehicle, or heavy equipment. In an extremely small and lightweight package weighing as little as 3.5 pounds and measuring 72 cubic inches, X-ES officials say.

XPand6000 series systems combine high-performance processing and application specific I/O added via PMCs/XMCs, such as MIL-STD-1553, CANbus, video input, RS-232/422, GPIO, A/D, and D/A for the most SWaP constrained applications.

For XPedite5650 development, X-ES provides the CX-DP desktop setup with standard I/O connectors. It provides basic COM Express I/O via fixed connectors, accessible through the back panel of its ATX chassis.
