The SBC-XAM is a mini-ATX compliant, single board computer. It is implemented by a CM-XAM module providing most of the functions, and a SB-XAM carrier board providing connectors and several additional functions. The rich feature set of the SBC-XAM is customizable according to the price / performance targets of the user's application.

The SBC-XAM contains expansion connectors which opens it to the wide range of standard peripheral cards. Wide input range switched power supply is compatible with requirements for telecom and automotive applications.

  • The "SB Option" column specifies the P/N code of the SB-XAM carrier board required to have the particular feature. The "CM Option" column specifies the P/N code of the CM-XAM required to have the particular feature. SBC-XAM content is the combination of features provided by the attached CM-XAM and the features implemented on the SB-XAM. To have a particular feature, both the CM and SB options of that feature must be implemented.
  • "+" means that the feature is always available, regardless of P/N code.
