STUTENSEE, Germany — MSC Technologies, a business group of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, a business region of Avnet Inc. (NYSE: AVT), expands its product portfolio with the COM Express™ Type 10 form factor. The new MSC C10M-BT COM Express™ Mini module Type 10 with a size of 55 x 84 mm is best suited for ruggedized applications. All components including up to 8GB DDR3 DRAM memory are soldered onto the printed circuit board. To increase robustness, the module offers an optional memory error correction (ECC) that delivers a high level of data integrity, reliability and system uptime. The COM Express™ board is specified for use in extended operating temperature ranges of -40 to +85 °C. The module’s high reliability is augmented by its processor’s virtualization technology and a built-in security engine.
