Portwell: basic COM Express module for medical healthcare, retail and IoT

Portwell released the PCOM-B642VG, a Type 6 COM Express Basic (125 x 95mm) module based on the 7th generation Intel Core desktop processor and Intel Q170, H110 and C236 Express chipset. PCOM-B642VG is Portwell’s second module with desktop CPU and one of Portwell’s new ideas to offer customers higher computing power but lower cost compared to mobile solutions.

The Portwell PCOM-B642VG COM Express module supports Intel Turbo Boost Technology via Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, Intel vPro Technology via Q170 chipset for superior remote capabilities and Intel Hyper-threading Technology via Intel Core i7 processors. It’s also designed with new advanced features offered by the 7th generation Intel Core processors that boost IoT designs from the edge to the cloud, including Intel SGX, Intel MPX, additional HSIO with increased flexibility, and expanded HW/GPU accelerated codec support. In addition, the PCOM-B642VG delivers greater graphics performance, stunning Ultra HD 4K display across three independent displays, as well as faster 3-D and video playback capability, while maintaining improved energy efficiency. These enhanced features and performance translate into improved security and reduced manageability cost, making the Portwell PCOM-B642VG an ideal solution for Medical Healthcare Systems, Military Equipment, Retail Systems and IoT application design across a broad spectrum of industries. 

Specifically, the PCOM-B642VG COM Express module supports up to 32GB ECC (supported by C236 chipset only) and non-ECC DDR4 up to 2400MHz on two 288-pin SODIMM sockets, making it faster than its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports one PCI Express x16 Gen3 (8.0GT/s) for enhanced video performance, 1.6 times faster than the previous Gen2 (5.0GT/s), and eight PCI Express x1 Gen3 (8.0 GT/s). 

Furthermore, PCOM-B642VG supports three independent displays, DP (DisplayPort), VGA and eDP with greater 3D performance compared to its previous generation. Running with a low TDP CPU (35 watts), the PCOM-B642VG can deliver superior performance in various environments.
