Emerson Network Power has launched the industry’s first modular single-board computers (SBCs) based on the COM Express small form factor, powered by Freescale’s multicore QorIQ processors.

Typical application examples for the COMX-P2020 include programmable automation controllers, security gateways, civil aeronautics and renewable energy; while the more powerful COMX-4080 can be used in storage servers, enterprise routers, enterprise VPN gateways and railway signalling/control equipment.

The modules bring Freescale QorIQ P2020 and P4080 multicore processors onto modules that incorporate the mechanical features and dimensions of COM Express.

They will be showcased for the first time at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) Americas on 21 to 24 June in Orlando, Florida, US.

The COMX-P2020 and COMX-4080 computer modules are designed to accelerate deployment across diverse markets by eliminating the chip-level design effort, simplifying the OEM design cycle while reducing the customer’s hardware design time and cost.

The COMX-P2020 features two processor cores operating at 1.2GHz, while the COMX-P4080 has eight cores operating at 1.5GHz.

They offer compact footprints – 95 x 95mm for the COMX-P2020 and 95 x 125mm for the COMX-P4080 – and energy-efficient power usage.

A typical use case with the COMX-P2020 requires only 12W.

The modules can support a variety of interconnect options and contain interfaces for maximum design flexibility, including local bus, multiple I2C buses, DUARTs with flow control and IEEE 1588 clock signalling.

The COMX-P2020 and COMX-P4080 modules will support a variety of embedded operating systems including packages from Green Hills Software, Lynuxworks, Mentor Graphics, QNX and Wind River.
