COM Express Mini Form Factor
The VL-COMm-26 is an extremely small and rugged Computer on Module (COM) based on
the industry-standard COM Express mini form factor. Roughly the size of a credit card, the
VL-COMm-26 has been engineered to meet the military and medical industries’ requirements
for smaller, lighter, and lower power embedded systems while adhering to stringent regulatory
standards. The VL-COMm-26 is manufactured to IPC-A-610 Class 2 standards. For extremelyhigh-reliability applications, IPC-A-610 Class 3 (modified) versions are available. This embedded
computer module, equipped with an Intel Atom E6x0T processor, is designed to withstand
extreme temperature, impact, and vibration.
Extremely small 55 mm x 84 mm format with Type 10 pin-out.
Intel Atom E6x0T Processor
1.6 GHz performance. Low power consumption.

No moving parts required for CPU cooling.
Wide Input Voltage Range
Accepts 8 to 17 volts (12V typ.).
High-performance Video
Graphics core supports MPEG-4 / H.264 and MPEG-2
encoding and decoding.
Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) with remote boot support.
Up to 2 GB soldered-on DDR2 RAM.
I/O Interfaces
SATA, PCIe, USB host / client, serial, HD audio, LPC, SMBus,
and CAN.
Flash Memory
On-board microSD™ socket and SDIO interface for plug-in
flash storage.
Driven by an Intel Atom E6x0T processor, the VL-COMm-26 provides significant performance
and lower power consumption (7W–8W typical) in a very compact package. The VL-COMm-26
provides compatibility with a broad range of standard x86 application development tools for
reduced development time.
The VL-COMm-26 utilizes advanced Intel technologies to maximize performance. Intel HyperThreading Technology (Intel HT Technology) provides two processing threads per physical
core which allows applications to work in parallel and complete tasks sooner. Intel Virtualization
Technology allows one VL-COMm-26 system to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. This
enables computing activities to be isolated into separate partitions for increased application
flexibility and reliability. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology enables high performance
while meeting the power-conservation needs of embedded systems by switching voltage and
frequency levels in response to processor load.
The integrated Intel GMA600 graphics core provides hardware-accelerated MPEG-4 / H.264
and MPEG-2 video encoding and decoding. A standard LVDS output supports flat panel
displays. An SDVO output supports a variety of signaling interfaces including VGA and DVI.
The standard Type 10 pin-out provides industry-standard system interfaces including Gigabit
Ethernet with network boot capability, seven USB ports, three x1 PCIe lanes, two serial
interfaces, Intel High-Definition Audio (HDA), LPC, and SMBus to the carrier board. An auxiliary
board-to-board connector provides two additional serial interfaces and a CAN interface. Dual
SATA 3 Gb/s interfaces support high-capacity storage. A microSD socket provides flexible
solid-state drive (SSD) options.
For enhanced security, the VL-COMm-26 supports Execute Disable Bit functionality. This
hardware-based security feature reduces exposure to viruses and malicious-code attacks
by preventing harmful software from executing and propagating on the network. An optional
on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is available for applications that require additional
hardware-level security functions.

Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40º to +85ºC) operation, the
rugged VL-COMm-26 also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock
and vibration. Soldered-on RAM provides additional ruggedization for use in
extremely harsh environments. Heatsink or heat plate versions provide fanless
heat dissipation. Thermal monitoring technologies protect the system from
thermal failure by reducing power consumption when required to remain within
normal thermal operating limits.
