Portwell’s New Com Express Type 6 Module Is Compact, Cost-Effective With Accelerated Graphic Processing
New MEDM-B603 features latest AMD embedded platform for medical imaging or multimedia imaging processing/control
American Portwell Technology, Inc., (https://www.portwell.com), a leading COM Express solution provider for the embedded computing market, announces its new compact (125 x 95 mm) MEDM-B603 Type 6 COM Express module. MEDM-B603 features the AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 SoC Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) with up to 4 cores/8 threads at 3.35GHz, 3.80GHz Turbo Boost, and the AMD Radeon™ RX Vega 8 or 11 (based on APU) graphics processing unit (GPU).
According to Jack Lam, American Portwell Technology’s product marketing director, the new MEDM-B603 appliance is ideally suited for an embedded system that requires an accelerated graphic processing capability, such as medical imaging or multimedia imaging processing and control.
Fully-Featured and Optimized
In addition to its embedded APU and GPU, the new MEDM-B603 features dual-channel DDR4 ECC SO-DIMM up to 16GB; supports as many as 4 displays (DP/eDP, HDMI, LVDS and VGA); supports 2x USB 2.0, 4x USB 3.0, 2x SATA, 1x PCIe x8, 1x PCIe x2 and 1x PCIe x1 Gen 3; 1x Gigabit Ethernet; and fTPM 2.0.
“MEDM-B603 puts all this together in a compact COM Express package with a footprint of just 125 x 95 mm,” Lam says, “to provide the cost-effective and optimized performance balance of computing power, accelerated graphic processing and overall power consumption. In fact,” he adds, “in a benchmark comparison, the AMD Radeon™ RX Vega 11 GPU scores higher than the Intel® Iris® Plus graphic 650 engines. What’s more, users can easily upgrade previous Type 6 COM Express modules with the new MEDM-B603 to take advantage of all its new features and benefits.
“And as always,” Lam confirms, “our customers not only benefit from the most up-to-date technology and features, but they also gain peace of mind from the long lifespan support (7+ years) inherent with every Portwell product.”
