(PresseBox) ( Stutensee, Germany, )
MSC Technologies, a business group of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, a business region of Avnet Inc. (NYSE: AVT), presents two COM Express™ Type 6 module families, which are based on the latest Intel® 14 nm process technology. The MSC C6C-BW module with quad-core or dual-core Intel® Pentium® or Celeron® processors (codenamed Braswell) offers outstanding graphics performance with low power consumption. The MSC C6B-8SB high-end module, which is equipped with quad-core 5th GenerationIntel® Core™ processors (Broadwell), features a significant leap forward in computing and graphics performance.

Thanks to the integrated Gen8 Intel® HD Graphics, the MSC C6C-BW module family ‒ in the compact form factor of 95 mm x 95 mm ‒ offers twice the graphics performance of the previous model with Intel® Atom™ CPU (Bay Trail). Three independent displays with up to 3840 x 2160 pixels can be connected via the HDMI, DisplayPort and Embedded DisplayPort graphics interfaces. DirectX® 11.1, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL™ 1.2 are supported. The Computer-On-Module (COM) is therefore particularly suitable for graphics-intensive embedded applications for the presentation of high-resolution imaging and fast videos. The low power consumption of the embedded platform is between 6 W and 9 W, and the integrated Braswell processors have a thermal design power (TDP) of 4 W to 6 W. The modules can be equipped with up to 8 GB dual-channel DDR3L SDRAM with high memory bandwidth via two 204-pin sockets. The wide range of modern interfaces includes two SATA 3, four USB 3.0, four USB 2.0 and up to five PCI Express™ x1 channels. A microSD card can be plugged in as an on-board mass storage device.

With the MSC C6B-8SB module platform, which integrates the latest 5th Generation processors, MSC Technologies rounds off the top end of its COM Express™ product portfolio based on the 4th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. The module is offered with two different Intel® Core™ processors (i7-5700EQ or i7-5850EQ), each with four processor cores. In addition to a comprehensive range of interfaces, the COM ‒ in the Basic form factor of 125 mm x 95 mm ‒ offers an Intel® HD Graphics controller GT2 or GT3e with additional graphics memory, Turbo Boost capabilities for the CPU and graphics controller, hardware-accelerated video encoding and decoding as well as enhanced security features.
