The CB70C COM Express module combines VITA 59: Rugged Com Express (RCE) design (currently in preparation) with Intel Core i7 processing to deliver scalable high performance using 1, 2, or 4 cores in a rugged small form factor. The Intel Core i7 family provides a core frequency of up to 1.2 GHz and a Turbo Boost frequency of 3.1 GHz. The processors also support Intel Active Management Technology (AMT), Open CL 1.1, and high-end graphics. The BIOS with integrated AMT support can be adapted to the final application. A board-management controller supervises board functions and temperatures. I/O interfaces include PCI Express, LVDS, DDI, VGA, HD audio, SATA, Ethernet, and USB. Up to 16 Gbytes of DDR3 DRAM, soldered with error-correcting code (ECC), is available. It supports other memory, such as USB flash on the carrier board. The module is compatible with COM Express Basic modules of pin-out Type 6. Embedded in a conduction-cooled cover and frame with a thermal connection to the printed-circuit board, the CB70C operates over a ‒40 to +85°C temperature range.
