First COM Express Type 6 board to support 6 core Intel processors

By Nick Flaherty

ADLINK has launched a COM Express Type 6 module that it claims is the first to support both the Xeon and high end Core i7 processors. Back inApril congatec launched the first type 6 board to support the 6-core Cofee Lake Core processors.
 The Express-CF modules use the Intel Xeon and 8th generation Intel Core processors (formerly Coffee Lake H) with up to 6 cores (Hexa) and up to 48GB memory capacity for applications such as image processing and analysis, 4K high speed video encoding and streaming, medical ultra sound and predictive traffic analysis.

The Express-CF modules are the first to support both the 8th generation Intel Core processor family and Intel Xeon processor E-2100M family. The 6-core Core i7 processors support up to 12 threads and a frequency boost of up to 4.4 GHz. Compared to earlier mobile quad-core Xeon and Core i7 CPUs, the additional two cores of the new Hexa-core CPUs results in more than 25% performance boost at no significant cost increase.

ADLINK’s Express-CF provides standard support for up to 48GB non-ECC DDR4 in three SO-DIMMs (two on the top side, one on the bottom), while still fully complying with PICMG COM.0
mechanical specifications. Modules equipped with the Xeon Hexa-core processor support both ECC and non-ECC SODIMMs.

With integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630, the Express-CF supports up to three independent 4K displays via DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI and LVDS. ADLINK also offers either eDP or analog VGA as build options by customer request. Additionally, the Express-CF supports Intel's Optane memory and NVMe SSDs through high speed PCIe x4 Gen3 interfaces, allowing applications access to the highest speed storage solutions on the market today.
