Researcher, developer and manufacturer of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency, Axiomtek, has announced the CEM511, a new COM Express Type 6 Compact form factor module powered by the latest 7th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor (Kabylake-U) for high-performance applications. The palm-sized CEM511 is packed with a variety of rich features including low power consumption, industrial wide temperature range support and graphic processing capability.

The COM Express Type 6 Compact module supports two DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM sockets with a maximum system memory capacity of up to 32GB. It has a rugged design with an extended operating temperature range from -40 to 85°C (-40 to 185°F) to satisfy different harsh environment demands. The system on module also delivers computing, graphics and media performance through its Intel Gen 9 graphics engine, DirectX 12.0, OCL 2.0, OGL4.3 features and 4K resolution (4096x2160 at 30Hz) support. Therefore, the power efficient CEM511 is designed for graphics-intensive applications over the Industrial IoT, including industrial control system, medical imaging, digital signage, gaming machines, military, and networking.

“The CEM511 a new industrial grade COM Express Type 6 module using the latest Intel Core processor, is designed for the customer who is looking for a powerful, compact, flexible solution. The embedded board provides versatile features and benefits to reduce system development efforts and time, delivering the best solution for various embedded applications,” said Seamus Su, a Product Manager of EPDE PM Division at Axiomtek.

The intel Core-based CEM511 comes with multiple I/O options including six PCI Express lanes, three SATA-600 interfaces, one Gigabit LAN port with Intel i219LM controller, four USB 3.0 ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, and four digital I/O channels. Also, the LPC bus is available for easy connection of legacy I/O interfaces. With extremely low power consumption and 12VDC-in wide range power input, the CEM511 is designed for a semi-customisable integration and application-specific solutions. Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) is also supported to provide efficient hardware-based data protection. This new low-power COM Express type 6 module runs well with Windows 10 and Linux operating systems. It also supports AXView 2.0, an intelligent IIoT remote management software exclusively offered by Axiomtek.
