ADLINK Technology Inc. has released its initial board products that support the 4th generation Intel Core processor family with Intel 8-series chipsets.
The first products featuring the new generation processor are the Express-HL and Express-HL2 (COM Express), NuPRO-E42 (PICMG 1.3), cPCI-3510 (CompactPCI), and Matrix MXE-5400, enabling enhanced embedded applications in medical, defense, transportation, and industrial automation.
With the new microarchitecture and its enhanced media capabilities in video en-, trans- and decoding, the 4th generation Intel Core processor improves overall system performance and reduces power consumption when compared to previous generation processors. In addition, ADLINK board designs utilizing the 4th generation Intel Core processor benefit from significantly reduced standby current and passive cooling support, allowing for longer battery time. These improvements, combined with the advanced high-resolution display capabilities for either 4K (4xHD = 3840x2160) or three 32x20 displays, have helped ADLINK to provide its advanced solutions for imaging and interface applications across key industries.
ADLINK’s Express-HL and Express-HL2 COM Express modules with 4th generation Intel i7/i5 processor—up to 3.1GHZ quad core—and mobile Intel QM87 Express chipset offer up to 16GB dual channel DDR3L SDRAM at 1600MHz. The Express-HL is a COM Express Type 6 module offering three independent displays via DDI interface, as well as seven PCIe x1, one PCIe x16 (Gen3) for graphics (or general purpose x8/4/1), four SATA III (6 Gb/s), Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 2.0, and four USB 3.0 interfaces. The Express-HL2 features the COM Express Type 2 pinout and offers 18/24-bit single/dual channel LVDS, Analog CRT, and a legacy 32 bit PCI bus, as well as PATA IDE interface.
