COM Express Type 6 module balances performance with power

Powered by Intel’s 10th Generation Core i3 / i5 / i7 / i9 desktop processors and the Intel Q470E / W480E chipset, the PCOM-B655VGL is a COM Express Type 6 module optimised for computing performance and power consumption, says Portwell.

It has up to 10 cores / 20 threads with a low 35W thermal design power (TDP) in an LGA1200 socket. The basic form factor offers long life product support of 10+ years and can support multiple displays including DP, HDMI, LVDS and VGA. The module is suitable for a wide variety of applications such as industrial automation, communication, gaming, networking, IoT, medical equipment, transportation, smart retail and automated test equipment.

The PCOM-B655VGL COM Express Type 6 basic module has dimensions of just 125 x 95mm. Despite its size, it includes the latest 10th Generation Intel Core processors, which enable up to 31 per cent enhanced multi-tasking performance and up to 11 per cent better performance on single-thread compute-intensive applications compared to previous generations, says Portwell. There is also a dual channel DDR4 ECC / Non-ECC SO-DIMM 2933MHz up to 32Gbyte and support for three DDI (DP / HDMI), one VGA and one eDP (LVDS) ports. There are also four USB 3.2 Gen 2, eight USB 2.0; four SATA III, one PCIe x16 Gen 3, eight PCIe x1 Gen 3; two UART and one Gigabit Ethernet port. PCOM-B655VGL COM Express Type 6 modules has an operating temperature range of 0 to +60 degrees C and is equipped with TPM 2.0 and offers AT / ATX mode versions. Portwell also offers a minimum of 10 years’ product lifespan.

With these features, PCOM-B655VGL provides a quick update to the latest Intel microprocessor with accelerated graphic processing and overall power consumption, to accelerate time-to-market for OEM products, says the company.

Portwell’s range of COMe carrier boards can be used to test the new COMe module products and develop applications or software. Portwell is also able to provide design, development and manufacture services for custom carrier boards.
