XC6 - ESMini COM Carrier Board for 3.5" PCs (Product Discontinued)

The XC6 is an ESMini carrier that can be used together with any type of ESMini module. It provides a PCI Express Mini Card slot with SIM card holder for wireless applications. A USB Flash disk slot and a microSD card slot as well as a SATA connector foran external hard disk allow a further extension of the storage capacity. As graphics the XC6 provides a DVI-I connector. As I/O the XC6 offers 2 Fast Ethernet, 4 USB host ports (one also configurable as a client), audio in and out, a configurable RS232/RS422/RS485 interface on a 9-pin D-Sub connector, a TTY interface for a modem, eight GPIO lines with +5V level and 16 GPIO lines with 3.3V level. The I/O of the XC6 can be extended by connecting an SA-Adapter to the +5V GPIO connector, e.g. for IBIS or CANbus functionality.

Its dimensions correspond to a 3.5" PC.
