  • Specification
  • Order information
  • Intel Atom X5 E8000, Pentium N3710 and Celeron N3160/N3060/N3010 Series System-on-Chip (codename: Braswell)
  • Up to 8 GB dual channel DDR3L at 1600 MHz
  • GbE, three PCIe x1 (opt. five PCIe x1 with bridge)
  • Operating Temperature Standard: 0°C to 60°C

ADLINK cExpress-BW provides two DDI channels (with up to 4K resolution) and one LVDS or DDI3 channel supporting three independent displays, enabling it to drive multiple HD screens without the need for a discrete graphics card. In addition, Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) is optionally available to support next generation displays. The cExpress-BW also offers optional on-board SSD support and up to five PCI Express lanes x1. A wide range of operating systems are supported, including Linux, Windows 7 and 8.1u, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows Embedded Industry 8.1 and VxWorks.

The ADLINK cExpress-BW computer-on-module with built-in SEMA Cloud functionality is ready-made for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The cExpress-BW is able to connect legacy industrial devices and other IoT systems to the cloud, extract raw data from these devices, determine which data to save locally and which to send to the cloud for further analysis. The results these analyses can provide valuable information for policy decision making and generate innovative business opportunities.
