The XM2-ESMexpress is a computer-on-module of the ESMexpress family in accordance with a proposed ANSI standard currently under development (ANSI-VITA 59, RSE Rugged System-On-Module Express) and supports a range of functions offered by this standard. Together with an application-specific carrier board, it is suitable for industrial, harsh, mobile and mission-critical environments. The XM2-ESMexpress computer-on-module is controlled by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a clock frequency of up to 2.26 GHz and a total power consumption of up to 40W. The XM2-ESMexpress computer-on-module can accommodate 4 GB of DDR3 DRAM memory and supports USB Flash memory on the carrier board.
The GS45 graphics controller supports x 16 PCI Express Graphics or up to two SDVO interfaces or DisplayPort (3 ports) and 2 HDMI ports. In addition, four x1 or one x4 PCI Express links are supported by the XM2. Other modern serial interfaces are 2 Gigabit Ethernet channels, 8 USB ports, 3 SATA ports, and one HD audio port. These interfaces are routed from the XM2-ESMexpress computer-on-module for availability on any ESMexpress carrier board.
The XM2-ESMexpress computer-on-module features a board management controller for temperature and power supervision. It comes with an Insyde H2O EFI BIOS configurable for the final application.
The XM2 ESMexpress computer-on-module is screened for operation in a 0°C to +60°C conduction or convection cooled environment. 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. With a low power processor, the module may be operated in an extended temperature range. ESMexpress modules are screwed to a carrier board and come with connectors supporting high frequency and differential signals. Soldered components are used to withstand shock and vibration, and the design is optimised for conformal coating. ESMexpress modules support a single 95 x 125mm form factor.
