MX05 COM Express Carrier

Type 6, COM Express® evaluation carrier in Mini-ITX form factor


Don't get left behind

Keep pace with the ever-increasing performance demands of today’s connected world by utilizing Abaco Systems’ MX05 carrier card to employ the latest computing technology without interruption. It is also an ideal platform to evaluate, benchmark or execute software development and tests for application software before the final base board is available.

Affordable upgradability, longer lifecycle

By separating the processor module from the I/O on the carrier board, Abaco Systems has made it easy to quickly upgrade to new technology. Thus ensuring you maintain your competitive edge while minimizing cost, diminishing disruption to underlying systems and enabling longer product lifecycles. Application modernization involves less risk and cost because existing I/O infrastructure is retained. This also reduces long-term total cost of ownership.
