November 1, 2013 – Rigel Engineering Introduces Low-Cost COM Express Carrier

Merritt Island, FL. – November 1, 2013 – Rigel Engineering’s CB2600 is a COM Express carrier that supports Type 6 COM Express processor modules. The footprint of the CB2600 is the same as a Basic size module (125 x 95 mm) and is ideal for use with Basic and Compact size modules in size constrained and rugged environments.
“We have built in scalable design practices and technologies into all of our carrier cards,” said Craig DeHaan, CTO of Rigel Engineering. “The CB2600’s design flexibility makes it ideal for industrial and commercial applications and rugged enough for demanding defense and aerospace environments.”

The CB2600 provides access to a wide range of COM Express Module supported I/O, such as VGA, DVI, LVDS, 4x USB (2x USB 3.0), 2x SATA, 2x Gigabit Ethernet, and 4x UARTs. The 2 SATA ports and 2 Ethernet ports use industry standard connectors. All of the interfaces use locking connectors for rugged environments.

In addition to the COM Express standard Gigabit Ethernet port (GBE0), the CB2600 provides a second Gigabit Ethernet port using the Intel 82574 GbE controller. It is connected to the COM Express Module using a single PCIe lane (PCIE1).

A single dual-use (full-mini or half-mini) Mini-PCIe socket is provided and is especially useful for adding a wide range of mass storage or wireless Ethernet options to the board. The Mini-PCIe socket is connected to both PCIe (PCIE0) and USB (USB6).
