D2691 COM Express Mini VME Carrier

d2691The D2691 is a specially designed COM Express Mini carrier board for one of our customers. The customer had a requirement to replace a legacy VME form factor board which was no longer available. The existing VME form factor board provided a number of serial channels, GPIO, Ethernet, RS-232, USB and VGA. Our task was to design a replacement using a long term available COM (Computer On Module) and custom circuitry on a carrier.

The Kontron COMe-mTT10 module was chosen for the core processor module. The advantage of choosing such a module is that these modules follow a standard - once this module reaches EOL in say 2017 (board was designed in 2013), another COMExpress mini module could simply be fitted and would work.

The carrier has a PCIe to PCI bridge and a Xilinx FPGA to provide the serial channels. The rest of the I/O comes from the COMe module. There is an mSATA socket on board for storage.

This is an example of the work we have done - contact us for further details.
