ADLINK Launches First COM Express Module Featuring Intel CoreTM, Xeon, and Celeron 6000 Processors

ADLINK Technology introduced its new Express-TL COM Express Type 6 module with Intel CoreTM, Xeon W, and Celeron 6000 processors and octa-core (8-core) performance.

Intel UHD Graphics and Intel AVX-512 VNNI provide artificial intelligence (AI) inferencing performance. The Express-TL is well-suited for image processing and analysis, high speed video encoding and streaming, medical ultrasound, predictive traffic analysis, and other demanding applications.

Key features include:

  • Intel UHD Graphics core support for one 8K or four 4K independent displays, including High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), DisplayPort (DP), LVDS, Embedded DisplayPort (eDP), and legacy VGA displays.
  • The Express-TL module provides 2.5 GbE Ethernet and 4 USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, allowing 10+ Gb/s transfer rates.
  • Intel Time Coordinated Computing (TCC) combined with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) Ethernet controller allows Industry 4.0 factories to be smart, agile, and  autonomous while maintaining robustness and reliability.
  • Additional 8C at 25 Watt TDP with ECC memory feature and on-board NVMe storage make it suitable for space constrained applications.

AI, machine learning, and internet of things (IoT) devices increase demand for real-time processing—from the edge to the cloud. The Express-TL module offers advanced tuning controls, immersive graphics, and connectivity, which allows new possibilities for AI, workload consolidation, and other intensive computing demands.

ADLINK’s Express-TL COM Express Type 6 module is a result of its close partnership with Intel. With vibration resistance, a wide operating temperature range, and reliable system performance, the module is designed to help shorten development cycles and reduce costs. Industrial system integrators, distributors, engineers, and others creating industrial applications will find that the Express-TL delivers suitable performance for power-constrained applications.

Per the company, ADLINK plays a role as a driving force in developing open standards such as the COM Express specification and has held leadership positions in the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG). ADLINK’s experience gives customers the tools they need to develop their carrier boards.
