DFI, a leading provider of embedded computers, today launches a new Type 6 COM Express Basic module, the HM960-HM86, in its mobile-based Intel® HM86 product line providing low-power consumption and higher performance. This COM Express Basic module is powered by the BGA 1364 packaging technology supporting the latest 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family. The enhancements in CPU performance, media and graphics capabilities, security and power efficiency in the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family are driving innovation.
In order to provide smooth flash playback and rich 2D/3D graphics with high quality playback, HM960-QM87 is equipped with the integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4600 engine. Targeted at gaming, media, and automation applications, this model offers enhanced graphics performance via the 1 VGA, 1 LVDS, and 3 DDI interfaces, allowing you to choose the best combination to suit a variety of requirements.
The new COM Express Basic module features 2 DDR3L SODIMM sockets that support up to 16GB. Offering persistent data storage, the optional onboard SSD is a lot faster than conventional rotating hard disks. This low-power module taking full advantage of the Intel® HM86 express chipset provides multiple expansion interfaces, including 1 PCIe x16, 7 PCIe x1, 1 LAN, 10 USB, 4 SATA, 1 LPC, 1 SMBus , 1 I2C, 2 serial, 4-bit input and 4-bit output GPIO for device controls. These flexible interfaces allow your systems to process a higher data load and provide faster loading of frequently used applications.
For the purpose of meeting more requirements, DFI® starts developing the next COM Express Basic module, HM961-HM86. Different from HM960-HM86, this module provides ECC memory for intelligent 24/7 systems that need a reliable platform.
HM960-HM86, the new COM Express Basic module with expansive features, are the ideal choices for a whole range of applications such as gaming machine, medical equipment, industrial control automation, security & surveillance, smart grid, ATM, and POS.
