Axiomtek has announced CEM846, its COM Express type 10 Mini module powered by the Intel Atom processor E3800 family with Intel HD graphics (Gen 7with 4EU) engine. The CEM846 addresses the need for modular and small form factor computing platform that provides flexibility and scalability and aimed at operating in an extended range of temperature.

The computer on module is only 84x55mm form factor which supports onboard 4 GB DDR3L memory, wide voltage, rich I/O and four lanes of PCle interfaces. From all these features together, the Intel Atom-based COM Express type 10 CPU module can be widely applied to IIoT, medical, transportation, security, military, portable device and many more. 

“The Axiomtek’s CEM846 features high performance density and low power consumption in a small footprint design that offers integrators higher flexibility without sacrificing performance and faster time-to-market. The rugged small form factor CPU module is offered with a choice of quad, dual and single core Intel Atom processor which is more flexible for meeting the different custom requirements,” said Yifei Wang, Product Manager of Product Planning Division, Axiomtek.

“It supports the capability of 4.75-20V wide range voltage power input and an extreme wide range temperature from -40 to +85°C for applications in extreme environments. The outstanding 7th gen Intel HD graphics engine integrated in the processor promotes the single-chip module with dual independent displays to support advanced image and video processing. The Intel Bay Trail SoC mini CPU module provides three DDI channels, as well as LVDS, enabling it to support up to two independent displays at 4K resolution,” continued Yifei Wang.

Faced with concerns about widely applied, the robust, pocket sized module supports serial signaling protocols including one LPC, four PCIe, two SATA-300, one Gigabit Ethernet supporting Wake-on-LAN, eight USB 2.0, one USB 3.0, HD audio, 4-In/Out Digital I/O, one LVDS (18/24-bit single channel) and one DDI port supporting HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort.

With all of these protocols, the CEM846 enables to connect with different signals generally to expand the possibility of various applications. Moreover, to ensure reliability and stability, hardware monitoring and Watchdog Timer are supported as well. The CEM846 possesses flexible features as above that make it rather attractive for the users looking for a semi-custom and application-specific solution for strict environment.
