ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of embedded products, presents its latest COM Express® offering, the Express-IB. The Express-IB is a high performance COM.0 R2.0 Type 6 module featuring an Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor supporting Intel® HD Graphics integrated on the CPU with three independent displays. A PCI Express x16 Generation 3.0 bus is available for discrete graphics expansion or general purpose PCIe (optionally configure as 2 x8 or 1 x8 + 2 x4).
The Express-IB targets applications in Government, Military, Medical, Digital Signage and Communications and is ideal for customers with advanced processing performance and graphics requirements looking to reduce development time by outsourcing the base design of their system and focusing on application functionality. The Express-IB supports Intel® Advance Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX v1.0), with its improved Floating Point Intensive Applications, and also offers the benefits of increased bandwidth provided by USB 3.0.
“ADLINK's complete range of COM Express engineering test tools that accompany the Express-IB were created to expedite our customers’ application development,” said Henk van Bremen, director of ADLINK’s Computer-on-Module Product Center. “These tools include the COM Express Type 6 Starter Kit, which allows customers to proceed with carrier board design and software verification simultaneously; the T6-DDI Video Adapter Card, which provides easy access to the Express-IB's DDI ports; the PCIe x16-to-two-x8 Adapter Card; and the LPC POST Debug Board.”
New with the COM Express Type 6 module are three Digital Display Interface (DDI) ports supporting HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort outputs, in addition to legacy VGA and dual-channel 18/24-bit LVDS displays. The Express-IB also offers Gigabit Ethernet, up to four USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, two SATA 6 Gb/s ports and two SATA 3 Gb/s ports (RAID 0/1/5/10) and support for SMBus and I2C. The module is equipped with AMI EFI BIOS supporting remote console, CMOS backup, hardware monitor and watchdog timer.
The Express-IB features the Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor supporting Intel® Hyper-threading Technology (4 cores, 8 threads) and up to 16GB of DDR3 dual-channel memory at 1333/1600 MHz on dual stacked SODIMM sockets to provide excellent overall performance. Intel® Flexible Display Interface and Direct Media Interface provide high-speed connectivity to the Mobile Intel® QM77 Express Chipset.
