PCOM-B644VG-1Portwell, a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, today announces the release of the PCOM-B644VG, a COM Express® Type 6 Compact Module(95mm x 95mm) based on the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ ultra-low power processor (codenamed Kaby Lake-U). This module includes Intel® Turbo Boost Technology for faster processing, Intel® vPro™ Technology for superior remote capabilities and Intel® Hyper-threading Technology for multithreading. Supporting three symmetric independent displays, the PCOM-B644VG is designed with the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor, built on 14nm process technology utilizing multi-stream technology, resulting in up to double the performance of the integrated GPU and improved energy efficiency. These features translate into reduced manageability cost and improved security capability, making the PCOM-B644VG an ideal solution for Automation Systems, Retail Systems, Network Systems, and IoT Solutions.

The Portwell PCOM-B644VG COM Express® module supports DDR4 2133 MT/s SDRAM on two SO-DIMM sockets, up to 32GB; one DisplayPort, one VGA, and one LVDS output; 4x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0; 2x SATA III; 5x PCIe x1, 1x PCIe x4 (PEG); 1x GbE; and wide voltage support from 6V to 18V. Specifically, the PCOM-B644VG COM Express® module supports up to 32GB non-ECC DDR4 up to 2400MHz on two 288-pin SO-DIMM sockets, making it faster than its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports one PCI Express x4 Gen3 (8.0GT/s) in PEG for enhanced video performance, 1.6 times faster than the previous Gen2 (5.0GT/s), and five PCI Express x1 Gen3 (8.0 GT/s). Furthermore, PCOM-B644VG supports three independent displays, DP (DisplayPort), VGA and eDP with greater 3D performance compared to its previous generation. Running with an ultra-low TDP CPU (15 watts), the PCOM-B644VG can deliver performance with energy efficiency in various environments.

Flexibility, Longevity and Faster Time to Market

Portwell’s clients know they can always count on us to provide them with quality products and long term support with up to date know-how. Designed with flexibility, the PCOM-B644VG is developed on a compact 95mm x 95mm platform with the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ ultra-low power processors which come in 14nm architecture with lower power consumption, better computing power, and better graphic performance along with enhanced media codec encode and decode capabilities. These features enable 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.

As the markets evolve, Portwell’s versatile COM Express® modules adapt to the 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. In addition, Portwell can also provide services to clients on the carrier board design and development, review schematics and BIOS customization. At Portwell, we strive to create superior products for our customers.
