The VL-COMm-33 is an extremely small and rugged Computer on Module (COM) based on the industry-standard COM Express mini form factor. Roughly the size of a credit card, the VL-COMm-33 has been engineered to meet the requirements of aviation, defense, industrial control, and medical applications while adhering to stringent regulatory standards. Equipped with an Intel Atom Bay Trail E38xx processor, it is designed to withstand extreme temperature, impact, and vibration.
Available in single, dual, and quad core versions, the COMm-33 provides extreme performance for its size. It does so at moderate power consumption (3.5 to 7.25W typical), in a very small package. The COMm-33 provides compatibility with a broad range of standard x86 application development tools for reduced development time.
The VL-COMm-33 utilizes advanced Intel technologies to maximize performance. Intel Virtualization Technology allows one VL-COMm-33 system to function as multiple virtual platforms. This enables computing activities to be isolated into separate partitions for increased application flexibility and reliability. Intel 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing when combined with supporting software.
The integrated Intel Gen-7 graphics core provides hardware-accelerated MPEG-4/H.264 and MPEG-2 video encoding and decoding. A standard LVDS output supports flat panel displays. An SDVO output supports a variety of signaling interfaces including VGA and DVI.
The standard COM Type 10 pin-out provides industry-standard system interfaces that include Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, a single USB 3.0/2.0 and six USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, Intel High-Definition Audio (HDA), LPC, I2C, SPI, and SMBus to the carrier board. A dual SATA 3 Gb/s interface supports high-capacity storage. Optional on-board eMMC memory supports up to 8 GB of Flash.
Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40º to +85ºC) operation, the rugged VL-COMm-33 also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration. Soldered-down RAM provides additional ruggedization for use in extremely harsh environments.
The VL-COMm-33 is supported by a variety of thermal heat dissipation solutions, including a standard heat plate, heat sink, fan for heat sink, heat pipe, and other cooling / mounting solutions.
A wide input voltage range of 4.75 to 20 volts simplifies system power supply requirements. It is fully compatible with 12V automotive-type power systems.
The VL-COMm-33 is backed by a five-year warranty, 10+ year availability, and expert US-based technical support.
Product customization is available, even in low quantities. Options include conformal coating, splash screen configuration, application-specific testing, BOM revision locks, special labeling, etc.
A compatible carrier card is required for operation of this COM module. Contact VersaLogic for custom designed carrier boards that meet your exact requirements. Please contact a VersaLogic Sales Engineer for more information.
VersaLogic products are designed for use by OEMs working in a variety of market applications: Aerospace, Defense, Energy, Industrial, Security, Medical, Military, Robotics, and Transportation. VersaLogic delivers extremely reliable standard and customized embedded computers backed with unsurpassed service and the highest availability in the market.
