NEW TAIPEI CITY, Taiwan, May 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — In recent years, as digital transformation has become increasingly prevalent for industry applications in medical equipment, industrial control and edge/network communication, the demand is growing for embedded computers to provide ever-accelerating high-performance computing and processing power while at the same time, to fulfill the strict reliability requirements. To enable these more advanced embedded computing solutions, limitless scalability is now determinedly expected to be a must have. As a result, the new COM-HPC (computer-on-module for high performance computing) specification emerged to complement the COM Express, extending the already highly scalable modular embedded computing design approach to facilitate a brand new portfolio of computer-on-module solutions that enable even greater upgradability and configurability with next-gen CPUs and high-speed I/O interfaces.
Portwell COM-HPC client type size B module with 13th Gen Intel Core™ processor for medical equipment and industrial control solutions.
High-Performance Challenges Advancing Innovations
And in response, adding to its expanding COM-HPC computer-on-module product family, Portwell has developed the PCOM-B883VG2 COM-HPC Client Type Size B module (120mm x 120mm), based on the latest COM-HPC Revision 1.15 design specification, and powered by the 13th Gen Intel Core embedded processors.
More specifically, based on the advanced COM-HPC computer-on-module architecture, the PCOM-B883VG2 is designed with the 13th Gen Intel Core mobile processor series which provides up to 14 cores combining 6 Performance-cores (P-cores) and 8 Efficient-cores (E-cores), and 20 threads compute capabilities, 24 MB Intel Smart Cache, integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics with up to 96 EUs (Execution Units) enhancing fast and dynamic visual processing and AI inference, as well as industrial-grade features accelerating real-time performance and intelligence in challenging IoT edge computing environments. Built upon the Intel 7 advanced lithography process, the 13th Gen Intel Core processor series also offers excellent energy efficiency, making it particularly suitable for designing fan-less and small-scale system solutions for edge computing.
One COM-HPC Solution Enabling Applications Across Industries
Built with high scalability and I/O performance, the Portwell PCOM-B883VG2 COM-HPC Client Type Size B module can be deployed in diverse use scenarios, not only as an enabler in edge servers, but also as a core computing component for an extensive array of compact yet high-performance embedded computers, delivering greater performance for medical equipment, industrial instrumentation, transportation systems, ruggedized field computers, defense systems, and many more.
The PCOM-B883VG2 delivers high-performance CPU/GPU capabilities for edge AI computing on a compact size, while ensures stable and reliable operations under limited cooling conditions. An example use case is at the manufacturing facilities, the PCOM-B883VG2 is designed in embedded systems combined with security cameras, and through utilizing AI technologies to identify and validate whether an individual has the authorized right to access the factory, as well as is compliant with properly using standard personal protective equipment.
In medical devices, the PCOM-B883VG2 supports a variety of high-speed I/O interfaces, including PCIe Gen5 x8 lanes, which are ideal for pairing with FPGA/accelerator chips to optimize high-performance connectivity for compute acceleration to empower an extensive variety of medical/healthcare devices deployed in placement/space constrained conditions, such as ultrasound, CT, MRI and so on.
