ADLINK Announces Two New COM Express® Type 2 Modules with Latest Intel® Processors

Oct 21, 2014

New support for existing COM Express Type2 install base to upgrade performance at minimum cost.

ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced availability of its newest COM Express® Type 2 modules. The new products come in two series, named Express-HL2 and cExpress-BT2, indicating the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor and latest Intel® Atom™ system-on-chip. The range in footprint and computing power of these new modules meets the varying needs of industrial applications in a cost-efficient manner.

Type 2 is an earlier COM Express pin-out, and is most commonly used in areas such as industrial automation and transportation. As many older generation COM Express Type 2 modules near end-of-life status, ADLINK’s Type 2 modules based on new Intel silicon will serve as a drop-in replacement to extend the service life of Type 2-based systems for another seven years—with continued technical support from both ADLINK and Intel®.

ADLINK is dedicated to exploring new form factors and technologies, but we also see the value in supporting and enhancing popular, existing form factors so that our customers and end-users can get the most out of their established installations,” said Henk van Bremen, director of ADLINK’s Module Computing Product Segment. “At present, ADLINK is the only company in the market that provides Type 2 modules with both 4th generation Intel® Core™ and the latest Intel® Atom™ processors. ADLINK continues to support COM Express Type 2 so that our customers can upgrade their systems using existing designs without the need to redesign their carrier boards, providing them maximum benefit from their investment.

The ADLINK Express-HL2 series is a basic size module (125 x 95mm) and is available in high performance SKUs running 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors with Mobile Intel® QM87 Chipset and cost-effective SKUs running Intel® Celeron® processors with Mobile Intel® HM86 Chipset. Up to 16GB dual channel DDR3L at 1600MHz is supported, and dual channel LVDS and VGA supporting two independent displays allow for development rich video applications.

The cExpress-BT2 series is a compact size module (95 x 95mm), featuring an Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 series or Celeron® processor with a power envelope below 10W, and is suitable for small-size and low power consumption applications. The module provides rich I/O including two PCIe x 1 Gen2, 32-bit PCI 2.3, one SATA 3Gb/s port, and one PATA IDE port (optional 2 SATA) to meet peripheral expansion needs.

These new Type 2 modules are reinforced by ADLINK’s complete set of technical and engineering tools, including the COM Express Type 2 Starter Kit, which allows system integrators to accelerate carrier board design and software verification; a debug module for POST, BIOS and Board Management Controller; and the Smart Embedded Management Agent (SEMA), which allows users to administer remote monitoring and control tasks via user-friendly graphic interfaces and access state-of-the-art cloud services. Versatile OS support is also provided to deliver flexibility, with standard support for Windows and Linux (32 and 64–bit) and extended support for WES 7/8, WEC 7/8 and VxWorks.
