San Jose, Calif. - The Express-CB from ADLINK Technology, Inc., is a COM Express Type 2 module supporting the 64-bit Intel Core i7/i5 processor with CPU, memory controller, and graphics processor on the same chip. The Intel Core i7/i5 processor and Mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset is an integrated two-chip solution that provides performance-boosting technologies, advanced power management capabilities, improved graphics performance, and enhanced I/O interface functionality.
The Express-CB is designed for customers with high-performance processing graphics requirements who want to outsource the custom core logic of their systems for reduced development time. Integrated graphics support includes features such as OpenGL 2.1, DirectX10, and Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology (Intel DVMT 5.0). Graphics outputs include CRT, LVDS and Embedded DisplayPort.
Target applications include: Medical Diagnostic Equipment and Medical Imaging, Portable Medical Devices, Instrumentation, Industrial Automation, Transportation, Data Storage, Infotainment, Gaming, Video Preprocessing, POS and Kiosk.
The Express-CB leads the ADLINK COM lineup in overall performance with the Intel Core i7/i5 processor supporting'Intel Hyper-threading Technology (2 cores, 4 threads) and up to 8GB of DDR3 dual-channel memory at 1066 MHz.'Intel Flexible Display Interface and Direct Media Interface provide high speed connectivity to the Intel QM57 Express chipset.
The Express-CB has dual stacked SODIMM sockets for up to 8 GB DDR3 memory. The Intel Mobile QM57 Express chipset integrates CRT and single/dual-channel 18/24-bit LVDS display output. In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, a multiplexed PCI Express Graphics x16 (PEG x16) bus is available for discrete graphics expansion, Embedded DisplayPort, or general purpose x8, x4 or x1 PCI Express connectivity.
Features include a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, up to eight USB 2.0 ports and four SATA 3 Gb/s ports with optional support for RAID 0/1/5/10. Additional storage interfaces include an optional SATA based Solid State Disk (8/16/32 GB), and a single IDE (PATA) channel. Legacy support is also provided for 32-bit PCI, LPC, SMBus and I2C. The module is equipped with an AMI EFI BIOS with CMOS backup, supporting embedded features such as remote console, CMOS backup, hardware monitor, and watchdog timer.
Samples of the Express-CB will be available to early access customers in limited quantities at the end of February 2010. Production quantities are expected to start shipping in Q2 2010.
ADLINK's complete Computer-on-Module product family includes ETX modules for PCI/ISA oriented designs and COM Express modules for PCI Express / PCI designs with optional legacy support through LPC. To evaluate or test our modules, prototype boards in ATX form factor are available.
ADLINK provides Schematics, mechanical files, design guides, R&D support, product review service and BIOS customization for companies that are doing their own carrier board design. ADLINK also offers full development and production services for those who wish to outsource their carrier board's design and/or manufacturing.
