PCOM-B644VG COM Express module is energy-efficient for automation
Portwell has released the PCOM-B644VG COM Express module, based on the seventh generation Intel Core low power processors. It is energy-efficient for automation systems, retail system, network systems and IoT applications, says Portwell.
The PCOM-B644VG COM Express Type 6 compact module measures 95 x 95mm, based on the seventh generation Intel Core low power processor (codenamed Kaby Lake-U). This module includes Intel Turbo Boost Technology for faster processing, Intel vPro technology for remote capabilities and Intel Hyper-threading technology for multi-threading. Supporting three symmetric independent displays, the PCOM-B644VG is designed with the seventh generation Intel Core processor, built on 14nm process technology using multi-stream technology. According to Portwell, it results in up to double the performance of the integrated graphics processor unit (GPU) and improved energy efficiency. These features translate into reduced manageability cost and improved security capability, making the PCOM-B644VG suitable for automation systems, retail systems, network systems, and IoT applications.
The Portwell PCOM-B644VG COM Express module supports DDR4 2133MT/s SDRAM on two SO-DIMM sockets, up to 32Gbyte; one DisplayPort, one VGA, and one LVDS output; four USB 3.0, four USB 2.0; two SATA III; five PCIe x1, one PCIe x4 (PEG); and one GbE; and voltage support from 6.0 to 18V.
The PCOM-B644VG COM Express module supports up to 32Gbyte non-ECC DDR4 up to 2400MHz on two 288-pin SO-DIMM sockets. This increases speed, compared to its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports one PCI Express x4 Gen3 (8.0GT/s) in PEG for enhanced video performance, 1.6 times faster than the previous Gen2 (5.0GT/s), and five PCI Express x1 Gen3 (8.0 GT/s). The PCOM-B644VG supports three independent displays, DP (DisplayPort), VGA and eDP and increases 3D performance compared to the company’s previous generation model.
As the markets evolve, Portwell’s COM Express modules adapt to the changes by enabling designers to partition commodity host-processors from proprietary baseboards to minimise design risks during the initial phase of development.
Portwell can also provide services to clients on the carrier board design and development, review schematics and BIOS customisation.
