Avnet MSC C10M-ALN – A COM Express Type 10 Mini Module with Intel Alder Lake-N CPU, LPDDR5 memory

Avnet MSC C10M-ALN is a COM Express Type 10 module powered by the Alder Lake-N family of processors including the Intel Core i3, Intel Atom x7000E, and Intel Processor N-Series. The design allows for easy adaptation of applications between various Intel CPU models, ensuring compatibility across different performance and power needs.

The module supports up to 16GB LPDDR5 memory with optional In-Band Error Correcting Code(IBECC), eMMC 5.1 storage, and features an Intel i226 2.5GbE controller. It can handle up to two 4K displays through DDI and eDP video outputs, ten USB ports including USB 3.2 Gen 2, and four PCI Express Gen 3 x1 slots for expanded connectivity options.

This module uses the new LPDDR5 instead of LPDDR4 delivering higher bandwidth and lower latency. previously we have seen products like AAEON PICO-ADN4 Pico-ITX SBC, and BOXER-6406-ADN have switched to using LPDDR5 memory from DDR4. The company says this board will support Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2021 LTSC, and Yocto Project (LTS kernel 2021). This makes it great for creating point-of-sales terminals, digital signage controllers, HMI solutions, and medical equipment.MSC C10 MB EV

The product page mentions a small carrier board (Mini-ITX) in a starter kit, likely referring to the MSC C10-MB-EV Mini-ITX Evaluation Board. The board works with different COM Express Type 10 modules and has many connectors for easy use. T

The product is not available for purchase at the time of writing but the company indicates that the first samples will be available in Q1 of 2024. more information can be found on the press release page and a few extra tidbits of information may also be found on the products page.
