(PresseBox) ( Stutensee, )
MSC Technologies, a business unit of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), presents the MSC C6C-SLU Type 6 COM Express™ module family, which is based on the latest 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors (codename Skylake-U). Intel’s U processor platform integrates the low-power processor with graphics controller and the complete chipset in one multi-chip package. The new processor line is perfectly suited to fill the performance gap between existing Intel® Atom™ and high-end Intel® Core™ two-chip solutions.

The energy-efficient MSC C6C-SLU COM Express™ modules in the compact form factor of 95 mm x 95 mm have a typical power consumption between 17 W and 19 W. Due to their low power consumption they enable the implementation of embedded systems, without the need for extensive cooling requirements. Some typical applications can be found in automation systems, for example.

MSC Technologies offers its powerful MSC C6C-SLU COM family in three processor variants with dual-core Intel® Core™ i7-6600U, i5-6300U and i3-6100U. The thermal design power (TDP) of the integrated processors is 15 W. The on-chip Intel® HD Graphics Gen. 9 supports DirectX® 12 and OpenGL 4.4. Three independent displays with up to 4k x 2k pixels can be connected. Hardware-based graphics acceleration and video encoding/decoding complete the feature list.

The wide range of modern interfaces includes 4 x USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, seven PCIe x1 Gen. 3.0 Lanes, 3 x SATA, Gbit Ethernet, HD Audio, LPC, LVDS or embedded DisplayPort (eDP), DisplayPort, and DVI/HDMI. The modules can be equipped with up to 16 GB DDR3L SDRAM and an integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for additional security features.

In addition to this new product line, MSC Technologies will offer another COM Express™ module family based on the two-chip platform Skylake-H in the coming months.

For evaluation and quick prototyping of the Type 6 COM Express™ module family, MSC Technologies offers the MSC C6-MB-EV Mini-ITX carrier board. The universal baseboard provides connectors for USB, GbE LAN, audio, DisplayPort, eDP, and LVDS graphics outputs. The board comes with a PCI Express™ x16 slot, a PCI Express Mini card socket for functional extension, and a SD Card slot.
