Rugged COM Express Type 10 Module with Intel Apollo Lake-I

The CM50C is a low-power and space-saving Rugged COM Express module that was developed around the Intel Atom E3900 series of processors. Due to the low power consumption, the virtualization support of the processor and the safe board management controller, the robust module is a multifaceted solution for individual designs in harsh environments and safety-critical applications. 

  • Intel Atom E3900 series
  • Up to 8 GB DDR3 RAM with ECC
  • Intel VT-x virtualization support
  • Rugged COM Express Mini (VITA 59 RCE) type 10
  • Trusted Platform Module
  • Board Management Controller (SIL 2 certifiable)
  • Conduction cooling
  • -40 °C to +85 °C

Space Saving and Ultra-Rugged

The CM50C is an ultra-rugged COM Express Mini module for rolling stock, public transportation and industry applications. It is compatible to COM Express Type 10 Pin-Out and conforms to the VITA 59 standard which specifies the mechanics to ensure reliable operation in harsh environmental conditions.

Scalable Low Power Processor with Virtualization Support

Based on the Intel E3900 CPU series with a low power dissipation of 7-16 W, the CM50C provides not only a scalable performance up to 4 cores and integrated quality graphics, but also Intel VT-x virtualization support. This allows to run multiple applications on a single hardware platform, saving physical hardware and costs.

Safety, Security and Connectivity

The board management controller provides enhanced reliability, reduced downtime and is certifiable up to SIL 2. With the Trusted Platform Module and the secure/ measured booting features fast cryptographic execution is supported. The CM50C comes with a large variety of interfaces, including, e.g., Digital Display Interfaces, HD Audio, PCI Express and Gigabit Ethernet. This enables implementing many functions on a very small form factor.

Extremely Rugged and Long Term Available

In accordance with the Rugged COM Express standard, the CM50C is embedded in a solid aluminum frame that protects the electronics from environmental influences such as humidity, dust, vibrations or EMC radiation and also enables operation in the extended temperature range from -40 to +85°C via Conduction Cooling. The processor's 15 years long-term availability ensures an extended product life and future-safety for a wide range of applications.

For less demanding applications, a standard COM Express variant without frame is also available.
