Page 1 of 1
A new COM Express module combines the crucial innovations in the 3rd generation Intel Core processors. The TM77COM Express module from congatec is fitted with the new quad cores, 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3612QE (4 × 2.1 GHz, 6 Mbyte L2 cache memory, TDP 35W) and Intel Core i7-3615QE (4 × 2.3 GHz, 6 Mbyte L2 cache memory, TDP 45W) processors along with the Mobile Intel HM76 Express chipset, as well as native USB 3.0 support and the fast dual channel DDR3-1600 MHz memory, providing up to 16 Gbytes. The newly integrated Intel HD4000 graphics core is equipped with over 16 execution units, performs up to 50 percent better than its predecessors, and can control up to three displays independently of each other.
It also provides Intel Flexible Display Interface (FDI), DirectX 11 OpenGL 3.1 OpenCL 1.1, as well as a high-performance MPEG-2 hardware decoding unit in order to decode multiple high resolution full HD videos in parallel. In addition to VGA and LVDS, it has three digital display interfaces, each of which can be configured for DisplayPort (DP), HDMI or DVI. This ensures a maximum of three independent displays for applications in the medical, automation and gaming industries.
With the first native USB 3.0 support for the module, data transfer is considerably faster, energy consumption lower, and now even simultaneous sending and receiving of data is possible. Eight USB ports are provided, three of those are capable of USB 3.0 Superspeed operation. Seven PCI Express 2.0 lanes, PCI Express graphics 3.0 (PEG) × 16 lanes for high-performance external graphics cards, four SATA interfaces with up to 6 Gbyte/s and RAID support, an EIDE and a Gigabit Ethernet interface facilitate fast and flexible system expansions. Fan control, an LPC bus for simple connection of legacy I/O interfaces, and Intel high definition audio round out the comprehensive range of features.
The congatec board controller provides an extensive embedded PC feature set. The independent x86 processor makes functions such as system monitoring or the I2C bus faster and more reliable, even if the system is in standby mode. The matching evaluation carrier board for COM Express type 6 is also available, so that all the new features can be tested with ease. Single unit pricing starts at less than $1,000.
