The MM1 is an ultra-small computer-on-module of the rugged ESMini family, available from Dominion Electronics . Together with an application specific carrier board it forms a semi-custom solution for industrial, harsh, mobile and mission critical environments.
The MM1, ultra small rugged computer-on-module from MEN Micro Germany, is controlled by the Intel Atom processor, a first generation IA-32 core based on 45nm process technology. Due to the new power architecture of the Intel Atom processor, the MM1 has a total power consumption of maximum 5W to 7W, while having a clock frequency of 1.1GHz.
The MM1 accommodates up to 1GB of directly soldered main memory and supports other memory like USB Flash on the carrier board. The MM1 offers a multitude of I/O, besides modern serial I/O like one PCI Express x1 link, LVDS, SDVO, high-definition audio, SATA and USB. It also provides legacy I/O (2 CAN, 2 COM, 2 Fast Ethernet, 2 I2C) and upto 120 GPIOs.
The MM1 is completed by a board management controller for temperature and power supervision. It comes with a Phoenix Award BIOS configurable for the final application.
The MM1 is screened for operation in a -40°C to +85°C conduction or convection cooled environment. As all ESMini modules, it is embedded in a covered frame. This ensures EMC protection and allows efficient conductive cooling.
Air cooling is also possible by applying a heat sink on top of the cover. Where operation temperatures are moderate, the module may even do without the frame and cover, with a suitable low-power processor and airflow. ESMini modules are firmly screwed to a carrier board and come with rugged industry-proven connectors supporting high frequency and differential signals. Only soldered components are used to withstand shock and vibration, and the design is optimised for conformal coating. ESMini modules support a 95mm x 55mm form factor.
