DFI COM Express Compact using Fourth Gen Intel Core U-series SoC

2014/06/04 (UTC-6)

DFI, a leading provider offering a wide range of products for industry applications, today unveils HU968, the most advanced COM Express Compact module in its fourth generation Intel® Core™ product line. The new U-Series platform with BGA 1168 packaging technology features smart performance, high speed I/O, and low-power consumption at only 15W TDP. Thanks to its single-chip SoC design, HU968 efficiently saves more space and provides better connectivity in such a small form factor of 95mm x 95mm.


The enhanced Intel® HD graphics GT series integrated in the processor projects a 24% performance increase over its previous generation. Improvements include rich media, multiple displays, as well as immersive visual experiences to a variety of industrial applications. The VGA, LVDS and DDI graphics interfaces can simultaneously display high definition images in 3 independent displays. Apart from excellent graphics performance, HU968 takes advantage of Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 mobile processor technologies that support dual channel DDR3L memory for faster communication between components.


The HU968 module delivers new connection capabilities throughout flexible expansion interfaces, including 1 PCIe x4, 1 PCIe x2, 1 PCIe x1, 10 USB, 3 SATA with RAID 0/1/5, 1 LAN, 2 serial, 1 LPC, 1 SMBus, 1 I2C, and 4-bit input and 4-bit output GPIO for device controls. Offering persistent data storage, the optional onboard SSD is a lot faster than conventional rotating hard disks. The U-series SoC-based platform even adopts the upgraded Intel® Active Management Technology 9.5 (Intel® AMT) to reduce manageability cost and enable service providers to manage, repair and protect the networked computing assets better.


All these advantages let the HU968 Compact Type 6 module accommodate to a wide range of industrial applications, especially in space-limited environments requiring flexible I/O, superior performance, and low power consumption, such as industrial automation, healthcare devices, gaming, POS, and kiosk.
