DATA MODUL is expanding its offer of high end COM Express products and is implementing all of the new Intel processor platforms (following the Intel IOTG roadmap) based on the COM Express module standard. These reference modules can immediately be used serially on baseboards or also as customized single board computers (ODM designs). Following Skylake, this official Intel launch of the new Kaby Lake platform also leads way to another building block module: COM Express Basic Type 6 module (eDM-COMB-KL6) with Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 and Xeon® E3 7th generation processors (codename Kaby Lake) for the high performance division. DATA MODUL is showcasing a variety of modules at embedded world in Nuremberg.
The DATA MODUL standard range of features for all products include the standardized in-house developed Embedded board controller DMEC (Data Modul Embedded Controller) with the following features: IO-MUX for the interfaces, window watchdog, UART, GPIO, RTM (Running-Time Meter), board information, I²C bus, SPI and PWM. Special features like CAN controllers can also be integrated without additional hardware costs. EAPI drives for Windows and Linux are available for the entire portfolio and for all future extensions.
The eDM-COMB-KL6 is suited for industrial products with a demand for simultaneous high performance and low power consumption. It is fitted with the latest 14nm Quad-Core Intel® Core™ i7 and Xeon® processors and has a 8 MB L2 cache with a TDP of 25-45 watts. The middle level is equipped with Quad Core Intel® Core™ i5 and Dual Core Intel® Core™ i3 offering a 6 MB and 3 MB L2 cache with a TDP of 25-45 watts. Intel® Smart Sound Technology will provide significant improvement in terms of voice command.
The Best in Graphics
The integrated graphic offers the latest Intel® Gen 9 HD graphics generation GT2. DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.3, OpenCL 2.0, as well as hardware MPEG-2 decoding, WMV9 (VC-1), H.264 (AVC) and Ultra HD Blu-ray ensure fluid HD video reproduction. The new HDCP 2.2 support with HDMI 1.4 also now makes processing of 4k (Premium UHD) possible. Up to three independent displays with a 4k@60Hz resolution can be controlled at the same time, even when the display content is different. 3 x DP++/HDMI 1.4/DVI and 1 x VGA (optional) and 1 x Dual Channel 24 bit LVDS are available as Interfaces.
The fitting option of eDP (Embedded DisplayPort) instead of LVDS can also be made available. This provides a solid "Plug&Play" application for the new high definition 4k TFTs with an eDP port without re-designing the client’s baseboard.
The standard defined interfaces are available in the following versions:
4x USB 3.0 (XHCI), 8 x USB 2.0 (EHCI), 2 x UART (COM1/2), 8 x PCIe Gen 3.0 lanes configurable as x1/x2/x4, 1x PEG x16 Gen 3.0, 4 x SATA (6 Gb/s), RAID 0,1,5,10 with Rapid Storage Technology support and Smart Response Technology,
LPC bus, GPIOs, SMB 2.0, I²C bus and SPI bus for onboard and external flash components.
The module is fitted with the Intel® I219-LM GbE LAN controller with AMT 11 support for network integration and the Intel HD Audio Controller. You can choose from a TPM 1.2 chip or a TPM 2.0 chip to ensure security.
Operating system support is offered for all common Linux distributions and for Microsoft Windows 10.
