Robust Controller Board from MEN Micro Provides Full HD Resolution to Panel PCs

Powerful graphics in compact form factor

BLUE BELL, Pa. – MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, now offers the robust CC10S, a multi-display controller board based on a Freescale ARM i.MX 6 Series processor.

Providing full HD resolution to LCD TFT panel PCs from 7 to 15 inches, the CC10S combines powerful graphics and a compact form factor that make the board ideal for driver desk displays or in-seat infotainment in trains or public buses as well as for medical devices and HMIs in automotive applications.

The CC10S module is widely scalable from low-end to high-end graphics requirements, depending on an application's needs. Its Cortex-A9 architecture supports different types of the i.MX 6Solo, 6DualLite, 6Dual and 6Quad processor families.

The board provides dual-channel LVDS with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, regardless of whether the controller module employs a single-, dual-core or a quad-core processor.

Onboard memory of up to 4 GB DDR3 SDRAM and a soldered eMMC provide ample storage for video data and Linux or VxWorks operating systems.

Although it employs a compact design, the CC10S is a multi-stream-capable HD video engine that delivers up to 1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode and 3D video playback in HD and enables the control of two independent screens.

The CC10S offers a wide range of interfaces required for a typical panel PC, including one Gigabit Ethernet interface (1000BASE-T), two USB 2.0 ports, and two UARTs for flexible RS232, RS422 or RS485 configuration supporting up to 4 Mbit/s.

For integration or software maintenance, the board can be connected as a terminal to the PC via a UART-to-USB port. Particularly for automotive applications, one or both UART ports can be used as CAN bus interfaces.

The CC10S multi-display controller is best equipped for use in harsh environments. All components are available as qualified for the -40°C to +85°C extended temperature range, are soldered to withstand shock and vibration, and are prepared for conformal coating.
