Stutensee, Germany – 11th December 2018 – Avnet Integrated simplifies the development of compact, high-end embedded systems with the announcement of a high-performance starter kit for its Type 6 COM Express™ modules named MSC C6B-CFLH. The kit enables the user to operate and test the Computer-On-Modules (COMs) on a proven platform that is ready to run. The starter kit supports the user in the early phase of the application development sometimes long before an application specific carrier solution becomes available. This can significantly shorten development times and potentially help to discover and solve design hurdles in an early design stage. The MSC C6B-CFLH product family is based on the latest 8th generation Intel® Core™ processors (codenamed ‘Coffee Lake’). The starter kit and the COM Express modules are developed and manufactured in Germany by MSC.

MSC COM Express™ products are available through Avnet Integrated.
The MSC C6-SK-CFLH starter kit contains a baseboard in Mini-ITX format, memory modules (SO-DIMM), a heat sink with fan and a suitable power supply. The universal carrier board has a COM Express base for Type 6 modules (compact or basic format) and features a wide range of common interfaces such as PCIe, SATA, USB 3.0 and 2.0, GbE LAN, LPC, UART, GPIO and HD Audio. Graphics output is via DisplayPort, embedded DisplayPort (eDP) and LVDS. Also, the carrier board has a PCI Express Mini Card socket for functional extensions as well as an SD card slot.
The Type 6 COM Express module family MSC C6B-CFLH that has recently become available introduces 6-core processors and delivers considerably higher computing and graphics performance at a similar power dissipation level as the previous 7th generation. The members of the module family feature Intel Core-i7, Core-i5, Core-i3 and Xeon® processors.
