Axiomtek – a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is announcing the CEM521, a COM Express Type 6 compact form factor module powered by the latest 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor or Intel® Celeron® processor 4305UE (codename: Whiskey Lake-U). It is suitable for harsh operating conditions with an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F). The 4K-ready system on module was designed for graphics-intensive Industrial IoT applications including industrial control system, medical imaging, digital signage, gaming machines, military, and networking.

The palm-sized CEM521 is packed with a variety of rich features including low power consumption, industrial temperature support and high graphic processing capability. The COM Express Type 6 compact module supports two DDR4-2400 SO-DIMM sockets for up to 64GB of system memory. The power-efficient CEM521 is also integrated with Intel® Gen 9 graphics and supported with DX12.0, OCL 2.0 and OGL 4.3 for excellent graphics performance with a resolution of up to 4K (4096 x 2160 @ 30 Hz). It offers three independent display support through one LVDS, one VGA and one DDI ports for HDMI/DisplayPort.

Advanced Features:

  • 8th gen Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 and Celeron® processors (codename: Whiskey Lake-U)
  • 2 DDR4-2400 SO-DIMM for up to 64GB of memory
  • up to 8 lanes of PCI Express
  • 3 SATA-600
  • 4 USB 3.0 and 8 USB 2.0
  • TPM 2.0 supported

AMS.AXView intelligent remote management software

“The CEM521 was designed for users who need a powerful, compact, flexible solution. The embedded module provides versatile features and benefits to reduce the design effort and accelerate time to market for quick deployment,” said Vicky Chen, a product manager of EPDE PM Division at Axiomtek. ”Moreover, we also offer the CEB94011 which is a selectable evaluation board to operate with the CEM521 to allow for fast turnkey development.”

The intel® Core™-based CEM521 comes with multiple I/O options including eight PCI Express lanes, three SATA-600 interfaces, one Gigabit LAN port with Intel® i219-LM Ethernet controller, four USB 3.0 ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, one LVDS, one VGA, one DDI, and four digital I/O channels. Also, the LPC bus is available for easy connection of legacy I/O interfaces. The CEM521 supports 12V power DC input applications.
