Axiomtek has unveiled the CEM700, its first COM Express Type 7 module with 5th Gen Intel Xeon or Pentium CPUs, 2x 10GBASE-KR, 2x SATA III, a lot of PCIe, extended temperature support, and a new Type 7 carrier board. The CEM700 offers processor options from the 16-core Intel Xeon D-1577 and quad-core Pentium D1519 processors from Intel’s 5th Generation “Broadwell-DE” family, led by the 16-core, 1.3/2.1GHz Xeon D-1577, and quad-core, 1.5/2.1GH Pentium D1519.
The COM Express Type 7 module features two 10GBASE-KR channels and supports two DDR4-2400 SO-DIMM slots for up to 32GB system memory. It also offers a single GbE controller and an NC-SI (Network Controller Sideband Interface) for remote management. The CEM700 provides powerful server-class performance in a small form factor of 125 x 95 mm, which can be incorporated into compute-intensive and space-constrained applications that make use of high data and network throughputs, like edge computing, microserver, data transmission device, and other networking fields. It has 3.5 Grms vibration resistance and an optional heat pipe cooler and heat spreader are available.
The module has an operating temperature range from -20 to +70°C or optionally -40 to +85°C. I/O option includes 4x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, and 2x serial TX/RX interfaces. Single LPC, SMBus, SPI, and I2C interfaces plus 4-in, 4-out DIO are available. For expansion interfaces, there are single PCIe x16 Gen3 and PCIe x8 Gen3 interfaces, and also 8x PCIe x1 Gen2. Additional features include a watchdog timer, hardware monitoring, and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0.
