Men Mikro Electronik GmbH has developed a new ESMexpress product, the XM2, which is based on Intel's Core 2 Duo SP9300 processor running at up to 2.26GHz. The board combines ruggedization and low development costs to form a cost-effective solution for harsh, mobile and mission-critical environments such as railway, avionics, industrial automation and medical engineering. The XM2 is also equipped with Intel's GS45 graphics controller that provides x16 PCIe graphics link or up to two SDVO interfaces, a DisplayPort or two HDMI ports. The module also features a host of I/O functions, including four x1 or one x4 PCIe links as well as two GbE ports, eight USB ports, three SATA ports and one HD audio port. The XM2's standard 4Gbytes of DDR3 DRAM memory combined with other memory capacities, such as USB flash on the carrier board, should be sufficient for most applications.

The XM2 dissipates up to 40W and offers a fanless cooling system defined by the ESMexpress standard. Because the populated board is mounted to a frame and completely enclosed in an aluminum housing, it provides 100 percent EMI protection.

Pricing for the XM2 ESMexpress module starts at $1,911.
