The EM02 Embedded System Module (ESM) of MEN Mikro Elektronik GmbH comes equipped with either a 933MHz Tualatin Pentium III processor or a 400MHz Tualatin Pentium II Celeron CPU and provides flexibility, scalability, and rugged operating characteristics required by designers of deeply embedded applications.

An ESM is a system-on-a module or a complete computer system on a mezzanine card that can be plugged into a carrier card to provide additional I/O. It measures 71-by-149mm, about the same footprint as a PMC module.

Showcased at the 2003 Embedded System Conference, the module offers a 133MHz data bus, 16KB of first level cache, and 512KB or 256KB of level two cache. Its system bus is compatible with all versions of the PCI bus standard including 32-bit and 64-bit PCI buses (33MHz/66MHz) and PCI-X.

Other features include an Intel 815G graphics chipset that connects to VGA monitors, VGA connector, USB port, GbE port, SO-DIMM socket that accommodates up to 512MB of DRAM, and a slot for CompactFlash. Also included is an IDE interface for off-board storage devices, two COM ports, a parallel interface, a floppy disk port, and a PS/2 port.

Depending on the carrier card, the EM02 can function as a system master CPU in VMEbus or CompactPCI systems, or as a standalone computer with no carrier card. ESM carrier cards can be designed for both 6U and 3U Eurocard formats.
