ADLINK Technology Express-BD7 Computer-on-Modules

ADLINK Technology Express-BD7 Computer-on-Modules are COM Express COM.0 R3.0 Basic Size Type 7 Modules supporting the 64-bit Intel® Xeon® Processor D and Intel Pentium® D Processor System-on-Chip (SoC), formally known as Broadwell-DE. The Express-BD7 COMs are specifically designed for customers who need excellent computing performance with balanced power consumption, and multiple 10G Ethernet connectivity in a long product life solution.

Express-BD7 COMs feature Intel Virtualization Technology (including VT-x, VT-d, EPT), Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (up to 16 cores, 32 threads), Intel Trusted Execution Technology, Intel AES-NI Technology, and DDR4 ECC (or non-ECC) dual-channel memory at 1866/2133/2400 MHz (dependent on SoC SKU) to provide excellent overall performance.

An integrated Intel 10G Ethernet controller supports two 10GBASE-KR interfaces, relevant sideband signals and NC-SI. The Express-BD7 COMs are designed to serve customers with optimized computing capability per watt and high speed connectivity requirements who want to outsource the custom core logic of their systems for reduced development time.

Express-BD7 COMs feature dual stacked SODIMM sockets supporting up to 32GB of DDR4 ECC (or non-ECC) memory. Input/output features include 16 PCIe Gen3 lanes, up to 8 PCIe Gen2 lanes, a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.0/2.0 ports, and SATA 6Gb/s ports. Support is provided for SMBus and I2C. The Express-BD7 Modules are equipped with SPI AMI EFI BIOS with CMOS backup, supporting embedded features such as remote console, hardware monitor, and watchdog timer.
