ACEX-4600 - COM Express Type 6 Carrier Cards 

Acromag's ACEX-4600 carrier cards support Type 6 COM Express modules and feature a rugged design for use in small form factor computing systems that require wide temperature operation and shock/vibration immunity.  
For easier development and testing, Acromag offers an engineering design kit with a break-out board that routes all I/O signals from the carrier's high-density connector to standard peripheral connectors. Production front panels with MIL-DTL-38999 cylindrical connectors and a conduction cooling kit prepare the carrier card for field deployment. 
  • Two Gigabit LAN ports
  • PCIe port
  • Four USB ports (2.0 or higher)
  • One to three DVI-I ports
  • Three SATA ports
  • CFast port (on-board)
  • Audio in/out
  • 1 or 2 RS232/RS485 port
  • Eight GPIO
  • System temperature sensor (on-board)
  • Two fan control line (on-board)
  • System battery (on-board)
  • Power monitoring LED (on-board)
