Sturdy enough to be used in transportation systems, AAEON’s versatile, cutting edge NanoCOM-BT Module is now available from Review Display Systems (RDS).

The Type 10 COM express module is based on the Intel Atom E3800 processor SoC and offers up to 16GByte of on-board Flash storage. Onboard DDR3L RAM is up to 2GByte, with the option of eMMC storage also available.

The Intel Atom E3800 processor, the memory and the Intel I210-IT Ethernet controller are all industrial grade and designed to operate in extremes of temperature from -40C to +85C, to protect against shock and vibration in moving vehicles.

The compact Nanoboard measures 84mm x 55mm yet integrates six USB 2.0 ports and a seventh USB 2.0/3.0 port for flexible I/O expansion. There are also two SATA ports, an 18/24-bit, single channel LVDS and a DDI port, both supporting simultaneous or individual displays, as well as support for 8-bit GPIO and PCI-Express. The NanoCOM-BT Module also supports 10/100/1000Base-TX for faster network connections.

AAEON’s Hi-Safe Software allows system monitoring and protection tasks such as watchdog timers and digital I/O control. The software supports popular operating systems Linux and Windows OS. When specific functions are needed, components are available as Software Development Kits.

Transport operators can benefit from the compact size and robust nature of the NanoCOM-BT. The versatile module can also be used in ticket machines, automation, gaming, point-of-sale and point-of-information kiosks we well as in automation and medical applications. The rugged construction and range of capabilities means it can also be used in surveillance and telecommunications, says the company.
