MSC Embedded Inc. Delivers Cost-Efficient COM Express Module with 32nm Celeron CPU

Highest CPU & graphics performance, maximum connectivity

San Bruno, California – October 26, 2011 – MSC Embedded Inc., manufacturer of highly integrated standard board level products and customer specific boards and systems, today announced the high-end MSC CXB-6S COM Express ™ module family – based on the second generation of Intel® Core™ processors. This module will be offered with i3, i5 and i7 CPUs with two or four cores or with a cost-efficient Celeron® variant. The COM Express module also offers a growth path to future CPU technologies and can provide highly embedded solutions for high performance platforms.

The cost-optimized version of the MSC CXB-6S module family integrates the Intel® HM65 PCH chipset and the dual-core Intel® Celeron® processor B810E, manufactured using 32nm technology. The CPU is clocked at 1.6 GHz and employs a 2 MB L3 cache. The specified thermal dissipation power (TDP) of the processor is 35 W. Fast dual-channel DDR3 SDRAM modules (two SO-DIMM sockets) - with a maximum capacity of 16 GB - ensure high computing power and at the same time low power consumption. An onboard Intel® HD Graphics 2000 graphics controller supports DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.0. A new cache architecture, the L3 cache, shared by the processor cores and the graphics controller increases the performance significantly compared previous generations of modules.

“Due to their high computing, graphics and video performance, the MSC CXB-6S modules are best suited for demanding applications in the fields of image processing, medical engineering, casino gaming and high-resolution digital signage,” said Mike Miller, CEO at MSC. “Like all modern MSC COM Express ™ platforms, the high-end modules are equipped with innovative hardware-based security functionality compliant to the requirements of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG.)”

MSC Embedded Inc. supplies universal baseboards for evaluation and design-in.. Furthermore MSC offers designservices for application-specific motherboards. These powerful platforms run using the Windows® 7, Windows® XP (embedded) and Linux operating systems and employ the .AMI UEFI BIOS.
