The New PCOM-B630VG Offers Higher Performance and More Accurate Responses for Medical Healthcare Systems, Digital Signage & Retail Systems
Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and a Premier Member of the Intel®Intelligent Systems Alliance today announces the release of the PCOM-B630VG, a Type 6 COM Express Basic (125mm x 95mm) module based on the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor and Mobile Intel® QM87 Express chipset (3W). The Portwell PCOM-B630VG COM Express module includes Intel® Turbo Boost Technology for faster processing, Intel® vPro™ Technology for superior remote capabilities and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology for multithreaded processing. Along with three symmetric independent displays, the PCOM-B630VG also utilizes the 4th generation Intel Core Processor, built on 22nm process technology utilizing multi-stream technology These features translate into higher performance with reduced manageability costs, which along with newsecurity features make the PCOM-B630VG an ideal solution for Medical Healthcare Systems, Digital Signage and Retail Systems.
The PCOM-B630VG COM Express module supports up to 16GB ECC DDR3L 1333/1600 MT/s SDRAM on two 204-pin SODIMM sockets, making it faster than its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports one PCI Express x16 Gen3 (8.0GT/s) with three controllers integrated into the processor for enhanced video performance and enhanced capabilities which can also be configurable to 2 x8-lane or 1 x8-lane and 2 x4-lane PCI Express ports. The module supports three independent displays, DP (DisplayPort), HDMI or DVI and VGA, with up to 1.6x greater 3D performance compared to its previous generation.
Expands Portwell COM Express portfolio for Versatility and Efficiency, and Speeds up Time to Market and Longevity
"Portwell's clients know they can always count on us to provide them with a quality product and long term support with up to date know-how, " says Frederic Wang, Sr. Product Manager at Portwell, Inc. Designed on a basic 125mm x 95mm platform, the PCOM-B630VG is backward compatible. In addition, the Mobile Intel QM87 chipset functions smoothly with the 4th generation Intel Core processors. "These features allow our customers to preserve their legacy components and subsequent investments while minimizing turn-around time–all of which ensures that the costs of inevitable upgrades are minimal, " Wang adds.Design and Customization Services for Broad Applications
In the Medical sectors, safety with accuracy and precision are paramount, while in the Digital Signage and Retail market safeguarding investments by lowering costs of future designs is the status quo. As the markets change, Portwell's versatile COM Express modules adapt to these changes by enabling designers to partition commodity host-processors from proprietary baseboards, thereby minimizing current and future design risks during the initial phase of development. "This design of separating the CPU-upgradable module from system specific I/O carrier boards further safeguards development investments and lowers total cost of ownership, " Wang explains. "In addition, Portwell can also provide services to clients on the carrier board design and development, review schematics and BIOS customization. At Portwell, " Wang confirms, "we strive to create superior products for our customers. "
