COM Express Module For Harsh Environments Features Condition Monitoring
With the Toucan-QM57, LiPPERT Embedded Computers offers a contemporary CPU board for COM Express Type 2 carrier boards. The module is specifically designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, making it suitable for mobile applications. Its Intel® Core™ i7 processor, with the Mobile Intel® QM57 Express Chipset and 4 GB DDR3 soldered down ECC RAM delivers enough performance for demanding applications like image processing.

Memory can be expanded to 8 GB using ruggedized XR-DIMM™ modules. Standardized by SFF-SIG, these memory modules come with a high-quality connector and are tightly fastened using screws.

The module adheres to the COM Express standard and includes these interfaces:

  • VGA, dual channel LVDS, 2 DisplayPorts
  • Gigabit LAN
  • 8 USB 2.0 host ports
  • 4 SATA ports with RAID support
  • 1 PATA interface
  • Intel® High Definition audio
  • PCI Express bus: 6 x1 lanes, 1 x16 lane
  • PCI bus
  • LPC, SPI, SMB buses

These hardware capabilities are complemented with built-in LEMT functions for condition monitoring. These not only include the current operating state, but also keep historical records of past conditions. An example is the device’s ambient temperature: whether it exceeded or fell below the permissible limits is an essential criterion for the electronics’ expected lifetime. The Toucan-QM57 is able to measure its own supply current and can thus determine the actual power consumption of the CPU under different operating conditions.

Some models of the Toucan-QM57 are also available in the extended temperature range from -40°C to 85°C
