ADLINK has equipped its four new embedded computing modules and boards with the latest Intel Atom x5-E8000 processor. These products, featuring the 64bit quadcore chip ideal for multitasking, boost performance and reduce power consumption for mobility, medical, and industrial automation applications, while offering better cost-performance ratios with improved computing capability, claims the company.
As stated in the release, “the latest embedded solutions provide the most efficient design options for low-power yet graphic-intense edge applications, such as mobile tablets, medical carts, and infotainment kiosks.”
The new modules include COM Express cExpress-BW, SMARC LEC-BW, Qseven Q7-BW modules, as well as the AmITX-BW-I thin Mini-ITX embedded board. Using 14 nm process technology, the processor offers a configurable TDP (cTDP) of only 5 watts at 1.04GHz.
The new processor also allows the embedded boards and modules to support up to 8GB of dual channel DDR3L 1600 MHz memory. The new products run graphics processing on a base frequency of 320 MHz with eDP/DP/HDMI interfaces for up to three display ports, increasing the number of ports over previous COM Express modules.
Intel Gen9 Iris Graphics offers 4K resolution along with excellent 2D/3D hardware acceleration. Graphics support includes Open GL for graphics rendering, Intel Quick Sync Video for fast conversion to mobile format, and Intel clear Video HD Technology for better quality video.
In addition to 4K resolution, Intel Gen9 Iris Graphics offers excellent 2D/3D hardware acceleration with decoding support for HEVC H.265, MPEG2, MVC, VC-1, WMV9, JPEG, and VP8, and encoding support for HEVC H.265 MVC, and JPEG. Graphics support also includes Open GL for graphics rendering, Intel Quick Sync Video for fast conversion to mobile format, and Intel clear Video HD Technology for better quality video.
The latest computer-on-modules satisfy the requirements for a wide range of applications with faster I/O processing and rich I/O features. All new modules offer three or more USB 2.0 ports, three single-lane PCIe expansion slots, and two SATA 6 Gb/s interfaces.
