The PCOM-B641VG COM Express module offers many valuable features, including a wide range of optional I/O flexibility like Gen2 PCI Express with mature eco-system, enabler for greater media competence like accelerated DRM (Digital Rights Management) for encoding and decoding.

The module is also rated to function at less than 50 DPM (defects per million). Portwell’s PCOM-B641VG is designed to help customers who are currently using COM Express module products upgrade their systems without having to change existing carrier boards and operating systems. This helps boost system performance with prolonged service life for another 7 years, maximizing our customers’ return on investment.

The compact PCOM-B641VG COM Express module supports up to 32GB DDR3L 1600/1866 MT/s SDRAM on two 204-pin SODIMM sockets, making it faster than its predecessor. Its expansion interface supports four (max.) PCI Express x1 Gen2 (5.0GT/s) for enhanced video performance and offers the flexibility to be configured to two x2 lanes or one x4 lane. In addition, it supports three high-resolution display interfaces: DP (DisplayPort) or HDMI, VGA and LVDS with double 3D performance compared to its previous generation.

The PCOM-B641VG COM Express module has been enhanced by Portwell in response to market demand for an even lower power platform to take advantage of the Intel Atom processor’s compact design. In fact, since its initial inception, Portwell’s expanding Intel Atom processor-based COM Express product portfolio has now grown to include industrial temperature range support.

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.

In addition, Portwell can also provide services to clients on the carrier board design and development, review schematics and BIOS customization.
