The ultra-compact COM Express® mini (Type 10) modules encapsulate energy-efficient CPU cores with x86 performance on a credit card-sized footprint (55 x 84 mm). The COM Express Type 10 module pinout uses the single 220 pin A-B connector. Type 10 COMs take advantage of modern display interfaces.
The COM Express Type 10 pinout provides the ability to offer PCI Express, Serial ATA, and LPC options thereby expanding the range of potential peripherals. The robust thermal and mechanical concept, combined with extended power-management capabilities, is perfectly suited for all applications.Carrier board designers can use as little or as many of the I/O interfaces as deemed necessary. The carrier board can therefore provide all the interface connectors required to attach the system to the application specific peripherals. This versatility allows the designer to create a dense and optimized package, which results in a more reliable product while simplifying system integration. Most importantly, COM Express™ modules are scalable, which means once an application has been created there is the ability to diversify the product range through the use of different performance class or form factor size modules. Simply unplug one module and replace it with another, no redesign is necessary.
