Intel "Haswell" Core i7/i5/i3/Celeron-powered space-saving COM Express Compact module provides a wide range of performance and functionality for embedded systems projects (by Conrad H. Blickenstorfer) The Advantech SOM-6894 is a COM Express Compact module that can be ordered with one of four different Intel "Haswell" Celeron or 4th Generation Core i3, i5 and Core i7 processors, giving application engineers powerful CPU platform choices to streamline the product development process and accelerating time-to-market. Though the board measures just 3.75 x 3.75 inches (95 x 95 mm), it can provide substantial performance as well as support high-speed interfaces to carrier boards, such as USB 3.0, PCIe Gen3, and SATA Gen3. The SOM-6894 is a highly integrated processor component that combines audio, video, and network functions with Intel "Haswell" Celeron and 4th generation Core processing power and technology advancements. As such, it brings a superior level of performance into existing COM Express solutions, or it can form the basis for COM Express projects providing previously unattainable levels of functionality and performance for intelligent systems projects. The COM Express standard COM stands for Computer On Module. COM Express, introduced in 2005 by the PICMG consortium, is a standard based on serial differential signaling technology for use in high performance embedded computing projects that require maximum I/O bandwidth, such as medical imaging, industrial automation, mapping, security, aerospace, etc. COM Express boards are often used for applications where older/legacy standards are no longer powerful enough. COM Express modules are small, too. COM Express Basic modules measure just 4.92 x 3.74 inches (125 x 95mm), with an extended form factor measuring 6.1 x 4.3 inches (155 x 110 mm). COM Express Compact, the standard used for the SOM-6894, employs a square 95 x 95 mm format. Even more compact is COM Express Mini, with a footprint of just 84 x 55mm. Just like COM Express is a form factor that actually comes in several forms, it's also a standard that comes in several types with different pin-outs and support for different interfaces and numbers of ports.
