COM Express Embedded Computing Solutions

COM Express Carrier Card

Acromag is a well-known manufacturer of embedded computing solutions. One of their specialties is COM Express.  It is a highly versatile computer-on-module (COM) standard.  Additionally, it allows for a high level of customisation and scalability in embedded computing systems. In this article, we will take a closer look at Acromag’s solutions.  Let’s see how they can benefit your next embedded project.

What is COM Express?

COM Express is a standard developed by the PICMG (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group).  Firstly, it defines a form factor and pinout for computer-on-modules. These modules are small, highly integrated boards that contain all the necessary components of a complete computer system.  Such as the processor, memory, and I/O interfaces.

Why use these modules?

By using these modules, developers can save time and money by focusing on developing application-specific carrier boards rather than designing and testing a complete computer system from scratch.  If you need more reasons why to use these modules check out this blog titled 3 reasons to use COM Express for Embedded Computer Systems.

Acromag’s COM Express Solutions

Acromag offers a range of COM Express modules based on different processor architectures.  This includes Intel Atom, Celeron, Core i7, and Xeon processors. The company’s COM Express modules are available in different form factors.  Such as Type 6, Type 10, and Compact modules, to meet the needs of different applications.

Standout features

One of the standout features of Acromag’s COM Express solutions is the company’s commitment to providing long-term availability and support. Acromag’s modules are designed with long product lifecycles in mind, which means that they can be used in embedded systems that require reliable operation over many years.

Acromag’s COM Express modules also feature a wide range of I/O interfaces, including Ethernet, USB, SATA, PCIe, and CAN, to name just a few. Therefore, making it easy to integrate the modules into a wide range of embedded applications, from industrial control systems to medical devices.

Another advantage of Acromag’s COM Express modules is the company’s customisation options. Acromag offers a range of customisation services.  Such as custom carrier board design, BIOS customisation, and even custom module designs based on customer specifications. Therefore, making it beneficial for applications that require specialised I/O interfaces, form factors, or other features.


In conclusion, Acromag’s COM Express solutions offer a versatile and customisable platform for developing embedded computing systems. With a wide range of processor options, form factors, and I/O interfaces, Acromag’s modules can be tailored to meet the needs of a wide range of applications. In addition, the company’s commitment to long-term availability and support, developers can have confidence that their systems will remain operational over many years. If you’re looking for a flexible and scalable platform for your next embedded project, Acromag’s COM Express solutions are ideal.
