ADLINK Technology Express-CF/CFE COM Express Type 6 Modules

ADLink Technology Express-CF/CFE COM Express Type 6 Modules support the Hexa-core (6 cores) 64-bit 8th Generation Intel® Core™ and Xeon® processor (codename "Coffeelake-H") with Mobile Intel QM370, HM370, CM246 Chipset. The Intel Core i3-8100H supports 4 CPU cores with 6MB of cache, resulting in an 80% performance boost in MIPS (million instructions per second) and an almost doubling of memory/caching bandwidth. TheADLink Technology Express-CF/CFE Modules offer Hexa-core processors that support 12 threads (Intel Hyper-Threading Technology) and an impressive turbo boost of up to 4.4GHz. The Express-CF/CFE combines these features providing uncompromising system performance and responsiveness in a long product life solution.

The Express-CF/CFE has up to three SODIMM sockets supporting up to 48GB of DDR4 memory (two on top by default, one on the bottom by build option) while fully complying with PICMG COM.0 mechanical specifications. Modules equipped with the Xeon processor and CM246 Chipset support ECC and non-ECC SODIMMs. Additional input/output features include eight PCIe Gen3 lanes that can be used for NVMe SSD and Intel Optane™ memory, allowing applications access to the highest speed storage solutions and include a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.0 ports and USB 2.0 ports, and SATA 6Gb/s ports. Support is provided for SMBus and I2C. The module has SPI AMI EFI BIOS with CMOS backup, supporting embedded features such as a remote console, hardware monitor, and watchdog timer.
