| BCM introduces ESM-QM87 COM Express module supports 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family targeting for applications that require stability, scalability, expandability and quick design turnover
The Computing Platform
BCM introduces the ESM-QM87 COM Express Module designed based on the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family equipped with Mobile Intel QM87 chipset architecture together known as the Haswell platform. The Intel® Haswell platform is built on the 22nm process technology with 3-D tri-gate transistors delivers significant performance advancements on a smaller chip over previous architectures including improved graphics, battery life, and security. This feature enables small form factor design on a COM Express Module such as the BCM ESM-QM87 targeting thinner intelligent applications including industrial Human Machine Interface (HMI), digital signage and medical imaging equipment.
Benefits of COM Express Module Form Factor
COM Express is a computer-on-module (COM) form factor. It is a highly integrated and compact computer board equipped with CPU, chipsets and memory sockets. All the input, output and expansion interfaces are designed on a separate COM Express carrier board thus allowing quick custom design form factors and I/O and easy core technology hardware upgrades by replacing the COM Express module docked on the carrier board. The COM Express modular approach allows for fast design turnover reducing the system down time and quick time-to-market operation.
Who uses COM Express Modules?
COM Express Modules are broadly adopted by many industries including gaming, retail, industrial, medical, transportation and security. This platform is an ideal solution for applications that require stability, scalability, future expandability and quick design turnover. For example, industrial control applications rarely redevelop the I/O interfaces to eliminate the hassle of changing the entire access of the external devices. The same carrier board could be used for a number of technology refresh generations taking advantage of increase performance or features by upgrading the COM Express module saving significant R&D costs while shortening the migration time.
The ESM-QM87 COM Express module requires a carrier board for I/O accessibility. For customers who need a compatible carrier board, BCM provides EEV-EX14 Micro ATX (uATX) COM Express Type 6 Carrier Board. Or if new custom carrier board is required, BCM offers custom design services, please contact BCMSales@bcmcom.com for more information on how we can help.
