Basic COM Express module for IoT applications
The Portwell PCOM-B642VG COM Express module supports Intel Turbo Boost Technology via Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, Intel vPro Technology via Q170 chipset for superior remote capabilities and Intel Hyper-threading Technology via Intel Core i7 processors. It’s also designed with new advanced features offered by the 7th generation Intel Core processors that boost IoT designs from the edge to the cloud, including Intel SGX (Software Guard Extensions), Intel MPX (Memory Guard Extensions), additional HSIO (High Speed Input/Output) with increased flexibility, and expanded HW/GPU accelerated codec support. In addition, the PCOM-B642VG delivers greater graphics performance, stunning Ultra HD 4K display across three independent displays, as well as faster 3-D and video playback capability, while maintaining improved energy efficiency. These enhanced features and performance translate into improved security and reduced manageability cost, making the Portwell PCOM-B642VG an ideal solution for Medical Healthcare Systems, Military Equipment, Retail Systems and IoT application design across a broad spectrum of industries.
Specifically, the PCOM-B642VG COM Express module supports up to 32GB ECC (supported by C236 chipset only) and non-ECC DDR4 up to 2400MHz on two 288-pin SODIMM sockets, making it faster than its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports one PCI Express x16 Gen3 (8.0GT/s) for enhanced video performance, 1.6 times faster than the previous Gen2 (5.0GT/s), and eight PCI Express x1 Gen3 (8.0 GT/s).
Furthermore, PCOM-B642VG supports three independent displays, DP (DisplayPort), VGA and eDP with greater 3D performance compared to its previous generation. The CPU’s TDP is specified at 35 watts.
The PCOM-B642VG is developed on a basic 125mm x 95mm platform, and with the Intel Q170, H110, and C236 Express chipsets functioning smoothly with 7th generation Intel Core processors. These features enable our customers to preserve their legacy components and subsequent investments while minimizing turn-around time – all of which ensures that the costs of inevitable upgrades are minimal.
As the markets evolve, Portwell’s versatile COM Express modules adapt to the changes by enabling designers to partition commodity host-processors from proprietary baseboards, thereby minimizing current and future design risks during the initial phase of development. This design of separating the CPU-upgradable module from system specific I/O carrier boards further safeguards development investments and lowers total cost of ownership. In addition, Portwell can also provide services to clients on the carrier board design and development, review schematics and BIOS customization. At Portwell, we strive to create superior products for our customers.
