X-ES Expedites Small Form Factor Systems Deployment with COM Express Development Platform

Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) announces the availability of the XPand1400 Series COM Express® Development Platform, which enables early development and rapid prototyping for COM Express® and XPand6000 Series-based systems. It includes all of the functionality of the XPand6000 Series with support for a COM Express® module, an XMC or PMC, and an SSD, all conveniently housed in a desktop setup with standard commercial I/O connectors. With the XPand1400 Series, the transition from development to the target XPand6000 Series system or custom COM Express® carrier card is made easy.

The XPand1400 Series provides a single COM Express® site with AB and CD connectors. For NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ-based development, the XPand1400 Series supports Type 5FS and Type 10 COM Express® modules; and for Intel® Core™ i7 processor-based development, the XPand1400 Series supports Type 6 and Type 10 COM Express® modules. It provides a single XMC/PMC site, along with a single XIM/PIM site for XMC/PMC I/O, one RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet connector, two USB 2.0 connectors, two DB-9 serial connectors, one Mini DisplayPort connector, one eSATA connector, one PCIe Edge card slot, three internal SATA connectors, two internal USB 2.0 connectors, and a single COM Express® I/O Module (CIM) site for access to I/O not available at the fixed connectors. Removing the ATX case cover provides access to internal fixed I/O and PIM I/O.

An integrated fan located below the XMC/PMC site provides ample airflow for the most power-hungry modules. The XPand1400 Series requires only +12 V from the ATX power supply. It generates +5 V, +3.3 V, and -12 V supplies, avoiding voltage drops and power distribution problems commonly associated with using high-power cards and ATX supplies.
