NewsSouth-East European INDUSTRIAL Мarket - issue 6/2008

MSC Vertriebs has disclosed the EXM32 system-on-module (SOM) specification, which was developed in-house by MSC. The EXM32 SOM specification offers interested companies the possibility to design and market EXM32-based products. The goal is to make the already widely spread standard available to an even larger circle of users and manufacturers. The membership is free of charge and interested parties can register at www.EXM32.org. To simplify getting started with the EXM32 standard, all important information required for the design of new products is consolidated at the above-mentioned website. In addition to the “EXM32 CPU Module Design Specification”, an “EXM32 Baseboard Design Guide” is also available there for download.
The EXM32 modules with a compact form factor of 65 mm x 90 mm are specifically designed for demanding environmental conditions. In order to satisfy the needs in industrial or automotive applications, the EXM32 platform is specified for an extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. Furthermore, the devices feature a high resistance to shock and vibration and meet the automotive specification DIN EN 60068
