New ARBOR COM Express Compact module with single-chip Intel® Core i7-6600U processor

ARBOR Technology, a leading provider of embedded computing solutions, is expanding its successful line of modules with the introduction of a 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor platform (codename: Skylake-U). The EmETXe-i89U0, a Type 6 Compact module features the Skylake-U single-chip processor which has a low power consumption of just 15W TDP.
Built on Intel’s new 14nm process technology, the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor is designed to provide excellent graphics and performance. Supporting the next generation of ARBOR’s COM Express modules is the PBC-900J carrier board for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, which also maintains compatibility with previous generations.

New Intel® HD Graphics 520 delivers stunning and responsive visuals in the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors, including Ultra HD 4k display and additional codec support. Enhanced security and manageability features help to drive down total cost and risk, protecting data and preventing malware threats.

Embedded computers allow the connection of up to three independent display interfaces via HDMI 1.4, LVDS and embedded DisplayPort (eDP). When using DisplayPort 1.2, the individual displays can be daisy chained to take advantage of simple wiring. Native USB 3.0 support provides fast data transmission with low power consumption. The two SODIMM sockets can be equipped with up to 32GB SODIMM DDR4 memory.

The strength of the EmETXe-i89U0 lies in the flexibility and customization for the application. A total of eight USB ports are provided, four of them supporting USB 3.0 SuperSpeed. Eight PCI Express 2.0 lanes, two SATA ports with up to 6 Gb/s and a Intel® i219LM PCIe Gbe PHY support Intel® Active Management Technology 11.0 (Intel® AMT 11) to enable fast and flexible system extensions, complete the highly flexible design. The extra features are TPM, 32GB eMMC 5.0, two UART ports, 8-bit Digital I/O, 5V-20V wide range power input and so on.

The EmETXe-i89U0 is based on ARBOR unique extreme rugged electronic design, enabling operating temperatures of -40°C ~ 85°C.
