COM Express base module comes with latest Xeon or Tiger Lake processor
For users who require high computing and graphics performance, Portwell has introduced the PCOM-B657VGL COM Express Type 6 base module. Users can choose between Intel Xeon W-11000E, Core i3/i5/i7 and 11th generation Celeron processors (previously Tiger Lake-H). The Intel UHD graphics subsystem offers up to 70% higher performance than the previous generation.
With up to 8 cores/16 threads at 45 or 35 W and 25 W TDP for industrial use and with ECC support, this COM Express base module offers long product support of over 10 years. It also supports 4 independent displays via three DisplayPort/HDMI, one VGA and one LVDP/eDP interface.
The PCOM-B657VGL COM Express Type 6 module packs a lot of power into just 125 x 95 mm. These include Dual Channel DDR4 ECC/Non-ECC SO-DIMM 3200 MHz up to 32 GB per DIMM; four independent displays with selectable options – VGA, HDMI, LVDS/eDP and DisplayPort support with resolutions up to 8K; 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2, 8 x USB 2. 0, 4 x SATA III, 1 x PCIe Gen 4 x16 and 8x PCIe Gen 3 x1; serial I/O with support for 8-bit GPIO, I2C, SMBus and UART; 1x 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet with integrated Intel Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) for lower latency; onboard TPM 2.0 for security features and an industrial operating temperature range of -40° to 85 °C with industrial SKUs and an AT/ATX mode.
With its current-generation Intel processors, now offers higher performance than the previous generation for compute-intensive single-threaded and multitasking applications for workload consolidation. Thanks to the integrated Intel UHD graphics with up to 32 EU (Execution Units), the PCOM- B657VGL offers 2 times higher transcoding performance and it supports up to four 4K displays simultaneously. It also has PCIe Gen 4 x16 on an embedded x86 platform with double the data transfer rates of PCIe Gen 3 for higher bandwidth, lower latency and lower power consumption. This extends the bandwidth to the external PCIe graphics card for AI and AIoT applications.
