Advanced NEXCOM COM Express Type 2 ICES 268 Comes with 4 Cores, 16GB Memory and Multiple Displays


Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — NEXCOM ICES 268 is a COM Express Type 2 Basic module designed to prolong the use of systems by allowing them to be updated in line with evolving technologies. Based on the rPGA988-type 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors, the ICES 268 supports up to 45-Watt quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-3610QE Processor integrated with Intel® HD Graphics 4000 and supports up to 16GB of DDR3 1600 memory. The ICES 268 upgrades legacy systems to support PCIex16 interface, allowing more flexible expansion design on the matching carrier board.

Following the Type 2 COM Express™ standard, the ICES 268 supports legacy IDE and PCI. As a supplement to the VGA and dual/channel 18/24-bit LVDS interfaces, the optional digital display interface (DDI), which is compatible with HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort signals at once, is supported by the ICES 268. Therefore, it allows system upgrades while working with peripheral devices using both legacy and prevailing interfaces to prolong the use of the system. By default, the ICES 268 comes with Intel® QM77 Express Chipset integrated Intel® vPro technology. A variant with Intel® HM76 Express Chipset is also available by option.

To facilitate rapid deployment of individual project designs, NEXCOM is offering the ICEK 268-T2 Starter Kit to allow users to immediately assess the full set of I/O functions supported by Type 2 carrier board ICEB8050C. Along with development toolkit, users can quickly come up with design modifications and accelerate project implementation.
