Portwell Furthers Its Type 6 Com Express™ Module Portfolio


American Portwell Technology, Inc. announced its PCOM-B217VG-VI-ECC embedded computer module, which adds the second-generation quad-core and dual-core Intel® Core™ i7, Core™ i5 processors to its Type 6 COM Express™ product portfolio. The Type 6 connector pin assignment is the successor to Type 2, adding the DisplayPort™ and high-speed USB 3.0 peripheral support contained in the latest high performance processors and chipsets in place of parallel PCI and IDE interfaces that are no longer present in most new chipsets. This announcement means that medical, commercial and industrial system OEMs using Portwell COM Express modules can either continue to follow Portwell’s Type 2 product roadmap or migrate to Type 6 at their leisure, as both pinout types are provided by Portwell for the second-generation Intel Core i7/i5 processors with 7-year lifecycles (through 2018).
