MSC Technologies has a ready-to-use starter kit, MSC C6-SK-8S-T6T2, for the instant operation and evaluation of its MSC C6B-8S COM Express Type 6 module family, based on 4th generation Intel Core processors.

The starter kit contains a COM Express Type 6 baseboard, a heat sink with fan and two 4GB DDR3L SO-DIMM memory modules. Designers can choose any COM Express module from MSC Technologies’ MSC C6B-8S product family.

The universal COM Express Type 6 compact carrier board provides the interface infrastructure for Type 6 modules while offering various PC-type connectors for external access: PCI Express x4 slot, LPC bus on 10-pin header, 4x SATA connectors, 4x USB 3.0 interfaces (compliant with USB 2.0), a Gigabit Ethernet connector, VGA and DVI connectors, 3x DisplayPort and 3x HDMI connectors as well as a 40-pin Embedded DisplayPort connector.

In addition, a feature connector carries SMBus, I 2C bus, power and reset button, beeper, HD LED and other system signals. A 4-pin fan connector is directly usable to drive and control the fan on the heat sink provided with the starter kit.

The starter kit can optionally be accompanied by an Embedded Display Port (eDP) Display Kit consisting of a 13.3-in. TFT display in HD resolution (WUXGA, 1920 x 1080) with eDP connection technology and LED backlight, and a suitable eDP cable.
