Type 10 COM Express Module Sports NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC

Based on the NVIDIA Tegra K1 system-on-chip (SoC), Abaco Systems' Mini COM Express module delivers 326 Gflops of performance in a 10 Watt budget, well beyond the performance typically associated with COM Express, to SWaP-constrained environments. The mCOM10K1's on-board components are specifically selected for their reliability in demanding conditions. Unlike solutions designed for benign environments, the processor and memory are soldered to the board for maximum resistance to shock and vibration.

  • COM Express mini, Type 10 form factor.
  • NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC.
  • Up to 2 GB DDR3L SDRAM memory.
  • Audio, Gbit Ethernet, GPIO, HDMI or DV1, SATA and Serial USB.
