ACEX4040: Carrier Card for COM Express Type 10 and AcroPack I/O Modules Description

The ACEX4040 carrier card allows you to quickly combine a COM Express Type 10 CPU module with a mix of I/O modules for custom computing applications.

With its rugged design and compact Mini-ITX form factor, this carrier card is easily mounted in a variety of enclosures for rapid development. High-density I/O connectors and numerous ports simplify interfacing to field devices and peripherals.

Select from 25+ AcroPack modules to install any combination of analog I/O, digital I/O, serial I/O, communication, and FPGA processor functions.

Designed for use in systems with size, weight, power and cost restrictions (SWaP-C), this carrier card provides a flexible solution for a broad range of signal processing tasks.

The COM Express site supports high-performance, low-power Intel Atom CPU modules.

The four I/O slots interface Acromag’s rugged AcroPack modules or Mini PCIe cards enabling a powerful mix of measurement, control, and communication capabilities. An M.2 slot offers flexible on-board storage while a SATA connector provides additional data storage options.
