The cExpress-HL is a COM Express® COM.0 R2.1 Type 6 Compact size module supporting the 64-bit 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/3 ULT Processors with CPU (codename: Haswell), memory controller, graphics processor and I/O hub on the same chip. Leveraging the benefits provided by the Intel® Core™ i7/i5/3 ULT System-on-Chip, the cExpress-HL is specifically designed for customers who need optimum processing and graphics performance with low power consumption in a long product life solution.

The cExpress-HL features the Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor supporting Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (up to 2 cores, 4 threads) and up to 16 GB of DDR3L dual-channel memory at 1333/1600 MHz in dual stacked SODIMM sockets to provide excellent overall performance. Integrated Intel Generation 7.5 Graphics includes features such as OpenGL 3.1, DirectX 11, Intel® Clear Video HD Technology, Advanced Scheduler 2.0, 1.0, XPDM support, and DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA) support for full AVC/VC1/MPEG2 hardware decode. Graphics outputs include dual-channel 18/24-bit LVDS and two DDI ports supporting HDMI / DVI / DisplayPort. The cExpress-HL is specifically designed for customers with high-performance processing graphics requirements who want to outsource the custom core logic of their systems for reduced development time.

The cExpress-HL features a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 ports and six USB 2.0 ports, and 4 SATA 6 Gb/s ports. Support is provided for SMBus and I2C. The module is equipped with SPI AMI EFI BIOS with CMOS backup, supporting embedded features such as remote console, CMOS backup, hardware monitor, and watchdog timer.

The ADLINK cExpress-HL computer-on-module with built-in SEMA Cloud functionality is ready-made for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The cExpress-HL 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.
