Flexible IO Expansion (DIME)

Flexible IO Expansion


The DIME is designed to expand the CEC Family with up to 2 additional Mini PCI Express sockets and SIM slots, as well as 4 additional USB 2.0 ports. Numerous different IO interfaces are supported with only one DIME adapter card (analog / digital / GPS / WiFi ....).

The two mPCIe socket resides on their own PCIe link. So the maximum interface speed available from the host board is used.

Key Features

The DIME has been designed to withstand harsh environments and extreme temperature conditions. The special rugged design, combined with the best industrial-grade components, offer high reliability and long-term performance. If the application requires, the board can also be coated.
