FREMONT, CA, UNITED STATES – American Portwell Technology has announced PCOM-B800GT, the latest addition to its computer-on-module (COM) family. According to Susan Wei, product marketing manager at American Portwell Technology, the new PCOM-B800GT is based on the newly-developed PICMG COM-HPC® specification: a small form factor embedded computing solution that delivers server-class performance and accelerated AI for rugged applications.
“The new PCOM-B800GT is driven by a COM-HPC Server Type E module with Intel Xeon D-2700 processors,” Wei explains. “Dimensions of COM-HPC Server Type Size E are a mere 200mm x 160mm,” she adds.
Features of PCOM-B800GT include DDR4 2933 MT/s up to 1024GB; 8x 10G KR, 1x 2.5GbE, 4x USB 3.2 Gen 1/USB 2.0, 2x SATAIII, 2x UART; 48x PCIe lanes: 2x PCIe Gen 4 x16 from CPU (bifurcation support—x16, x8, x4), 2x PCIe Gen 3 x8 (bifurcation support—x8, x4, x2, x1); AI workload acceleration with Intel AVX-512 VNNI (Vector Neural Network Instructions), and Intel DL (Deep Learning) Boost; industrial temperature range from -40°C through +85°C (selected SKUs); TDP 65W to 118W power consumption; on-board TPM 2.0 for hardware-based security.
Portwell’s PCOM-B800GT utilizes the PCOM-C800 carrier board for functional testing and software development.
Perfect for High-Performance Network Computing and Control Applications
According to Robert Feng, senior product marketing director at American Portwell Technology, the new PCOM-B800GT is built for high-performance computing applications including IoT, AI/ML, cell tower base stations, medical equipment, defense systems, networking equipment and appliance, autonomous vehicles, and much more. “PCOM-B800GT is designed to fulfill the growing demand for embedded computers,” says Feng, “to provide high-speed performance with scalability to serve the new and ever-evolving class of embedded edge servers.”
COM & COM-HPC: Less Complexity and Risk; More Flexibility
The computer-on-module (COM) design reduces the complexity and risk of developing and maintaining a product platform, while maintaining high flexibility for future upgrades. “COM-HPC is the perfect solution for customers who need the high-flexibility COM design while also requiring intensive CPU computing capability, large memory capacity and lots of high bandwidth I/Os. Not only that,” Feng continues, “our customers also benefit from the peace of mind they get from the long life span support of 10+ years inherent with PCOM-B800GT.”
