Portwell Releases A Basic COM Express Module Equipped With 6th Generation Intel Core Processors
|Portwell’s PCOM-B639VG: Type 6 COM Express Module based on 6th Generation Intel Core Processor|
TAIPEI, TAIWAN — May 10, 2016 – Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance today announces the release of the PCOM-B639VG, a Type 6 COM Express Basic (125mm x 95mm) module based on the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor and Mobile Intel® QM170 chipset (2.6W). The COM Express module includes Intel® Turbo Boost Technology for faster processing, Intel® vPro™ Technology for superior remote capabilities and Intel® Hyper-threading Technology for multithreading. Supporting three symmetric independent displays, the PCOM-B639VG is designed with the 6th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor, built on 14nm process technology utilizing multi-stream technology, resulting in up to double the performance of the integrated GPU and improved energy efficiency. These features translate into reduced manageability cost and improved security capability, making the PCOM-B639VG an ideal solution for Networks Systems, Digital Signage and Retail Systems.
The basic PCOM-B639VG COM Express module supports up to 32 GB ECC/Non-ECC DDR4 2133 MT/s SDRAM on two 204-pin SODIMM sockets making it faster than its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports one PCI Express x16 Gen3 (8.0GT/s) with three controllers integrated into processor for enhanced video performance and capabilities to be configurable to 2 x8-lane or 1 x8-lane and 2 x4-lane PCI Express ports. The module supports three independent displays, DP (Display Port), HDMI or DVI and VGA with up to double greater 3D performance compared to its previous generation.
Expanding Portwell COM Express portfolio for Versatility, Efficiency, Fast Time to Market and Longevity
Portwell’s clients know they can always count on us to provide them with a quality product and long term support with up to date know-how. Designed on a basic 125mm x 95mm platform, the PCOM-B639VG is backward compatible. In addition, the Mobile Intel® QM170 chipset functions smoothly with 6th generation Intel Core processors. These features allow our customers to preserve their legacy components and subsequent investments while minimizing turn-around time – all of which ensures that the costs of inevitable upgrades are minimal.
Design and Customization Services for Broad Applications
In the networks sectors, stable with accuracy and precision are paramount, while in the digital signage and retail market safeguarding investments by lowering costs of future design upgrades is the status quo. As the markets change, Portwell’s versatile COM Express modules adapt to these changes by enabling designers to partition commodity host-processors from proprietary baseboards, thereby minimizing current and future design risks during the initial phase of development. This design of separating the CPU-upgradable module from system specific I/O carrier boards further safeguards development investments and lowers total cost of ownership. In addition, Portwell can also provide services to clients on the carrier board design and development, review schematics and BIOS customization. At Portwell, we strive to create superior products for our customers.
