New R2.1 Type 6 SOM-6867 COM Express Compact Module With Intel® Atom™ E3800 & Celeron® E3845/J1900

Outstanding Performance with Low Power Consumption

(PresseBox) (Germering, ) Nov. 14, 2014, Germering, Germany - Advantech, a leading embedded computing solution provider, announced the release of its new COM Express 2.1 Compact type 6 pin-out module board—SOM-6867. SOM-6867 is designed with Intel® Atom™ E3845/Celeron® J1900 processor which gives impressive CPU and graphics performance improvements over previous generations. This model features up to 8GB of DDR3L 1333MHz non-ECC unbuffered memory, and is ideal for applications with high graphic requirements for entry level design and multiple display connectivity. SOM-6867 targets at applications such as test equipment, control management, automation and also hand-carry systems.
Palm-Size with Superior Performance
SOM-6867 is a COM Express type 6 Compact module (95 x 95 mm) that takes up around 24% less space but gives 300% plus CPU performance and 400% graphic performance increase over previous generations. SOM-6867 J1900 consumes less than 5 watts (idle mode) for the whole module, and provides practical information for system design and integration. It delivers up to 8 GB DDR3L memory and two SO-DIMM sockets to fulfill intensive graphic requirements. SOM-6867 supports DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.0 and H.264 flexible hardware decoder to decode multiple high-resolution full HD videos.
In addition, SOM-6867 supports dual independent displays for even better media and display capabilities. SOM-6867 Display Port is capable of up to 2560 x 1600 pixels and 1920 x 1200 pixels with HDMI, as well as a combination of two independent displays via 2CH 24-bit LVDS.

Flexibility for Various System Design
SOM-6867 has a wide range of voltage input from 4.75V ~ 20V, and flexible application development options from its 1 to 4 core selection. With PCIe x4 built into the processor, SOM-6867 provides super fast data transmission. This model is able to support 4 x PCIe x1 and single LAN. SOM-6867 solves the difficulty for customers requiring high data transmission and LAN at the same time; which was not available from previous platforms. On-board storage design provides better reliability than traditional hard disk drives, allowing more space for system design.

Supports Advantech iManager Hardware Monitoring Utility
SOM-6867 fully supports Advantech iManager, which provides a valuable suite of programmable APIs such as multi-level watchdog, hardware monitor, and other user-friendly interfaces. Since this is a built-in on-chip solution, iManager ensures that functions operate even if the operating system fails, helping enhance system stability and compatibility, and reducing effort on carrier board design and platform migration.

SOM-6897 will be available by Nov., 2014. Please contact your local Advantech sales rep or visit the website ( for more details.
