Embedded Module TQMxE39C1 COM Express® Compact Module (Type 6) with Intel Atom® x5/x7 E3900

Intel Atom® x5/x7 E3900 (“Apollo Lake-I”)

  • Triple Display Support with DP/HDMI (up to 4K UHD) and eDP/LVDS
  • Up to 64 GB eMMC Flash, soldered
  • Dual/Quad Core Processors with up to 2.5 GHz
  • High-Speed by Gigabit Ethernet
  • Especially robust design
  • Protective coating possible
The TQ module TQMxE39C1 is based on the latest generation of Intel® Atom™ processors. It achieves a new level of compute performance, security and media processing performance in a very compact form factor to empower real-time computing, industrial automation, digital surveillance, aviation, medical, retail and more. The module corresponds to the international established PICMG standard COM Express® Compact (COM.0 R2.1) with type 6 pinout. With the latest Intel® graphics processor integrated the module delivers 4K high Resolution graphics output, immersive 3D processing and also greatly increased video encode and playback performance.
Time coordinated computing capabilities enable time synchronized processes within IoT Networks and industrial control applications. Onboard eMMC up to 64 GB and the option for LVDS or native eDP enable flexibility and reduce overall BOM cost. Combined with options on request like conformal coating and optimized cooling solutions the TQMxE39C1 fits also perfectly into ruggedized applications.
