Portwell Launches New COM-HPC Server Type Size E Module with Intel® Xeon® D-2700 Processors

New PCOM-B800GT with PCOM-C800 COM-HPC® Carrier Board Delivers Server-Class Performance and AI/ML Acceleration

New COM-HPC Server Type Size E

FREMONT, CALIF. — August 3, 2022 — American Portwell Technology, Inc.,(https://www.portwell.com) a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator for Industrial PC (IPC) and embedded computing solutions, a Titanium Partner of Intel® Partner Alliance and an Elite level of Solution Integration Partner in the NVIDIA® Partner Network (NPN), announces PCOM-B800GT, the latest addition to its computer-on-module (COM) family. According to Susan Wei, product marketing manager at American Portwell Technology, the new PCOM-B800GT is based on the newly-developed PICMG® COM-HPC® specification: a small form factor embedded computing solution that delivers server-class performance and accelerated AI for rugged applications.

“The new PCOM-B800GT is driven by a COM-HPC Server Type E module with Intel® Xeon® D-2700 processors (codenamed Ice Lake D),” Wei explains. “Dimensions of COM-HPC Server Type Size E are a mere 200mm x 160mm,” she adds.

Features of PCOM-B800GT include DDR4 2933 MT/s up to 1024GB; 8x 10G KR, 1x 2.5GbE, 4x USB 3.2 Gen 1/USB 2.0, 2x SATAIII, 2x UART; 48x PCIe lanes: 2x PCIe Gen 4 x16 from CPU (bifurcation support—x16, x8, x4), 2x PCIe Gen 3 x8 (bifurcation support—x8, x4, x2, x1); AI workload acceleration with Intel AVX-512 VNNI (Vector Neural Network Instructions), and Intel DL (Deep Learning) Boost; industrial temperature range from -40°C through +85°C (selected SKUs); TDP 65W to 118W power consumption; on-board TPM 2.0 for hardware-based security.

Portwell’s PCOM-B800GT utilizes the PCOM-C800 carrier board for functional testing and software development.

Perfect for High-Performance Network Computing and Control Applications
According to Robert Feng, senior product marketing director at American Portwell Technology, the new PCOM-B800GT is built for high-performance computing applications including IoT, AI/ML, cell tower base stations, medical equipment, defense systems, networking equipment and appliance, autonomous vehicles, and much more. “PCOM-B800GT is designed to fulfill the growing demand for embedded computers,” says Feng, “to provide high-speed performance with scalability to serve the new and ever-evolving class of embedded edge servers.”

COM & COM-HPC: Less Complexity and Risk; More Flexibility
The computer-on-module (COM) design reduces the complexity and risk of developing and maintaining a product platform, while maintaining high flexibility for future upgrades. “COM-HPC is the perfect solution for customers who need the high-flexibility COM design while also requiring intensive CPU computing capability, large memory capacity and lots of high bandwidth I/Os. Not only that,” Feng continues, “our customers also benefit from the peace of mind they get from the long life span support of 10+ years inherent with PCOM-B800GT.”

To complement the COM Express specification and fulfill the growing demand of high-performance computing and more high-bandwidth I/O interfaces, the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG) has developed the COM-HPC (High-Performance Computing) computer-on-module specification. COM-HPC uses the same concept as COM Express, while increasing the connectors from 440 pins to 800 pins to support more expansions, and improves the speed of the I/O interface with PCIe Gen 4 or Gen 5 (32GT/s), USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 (20Gbps) or USB 4 (40Gbps), and 25G KR signals. COM-HPC has two module types, Server and Client. The COM-HPC Server Type focuses on server applications, providing up to 65 lanes of PCIe, 8 KR Ethernet, and utilizes CPU with TDP of up to 150W. In contrast, the COM-HPC Client Type provides 49 PCIe lanes and multiple media interfaces, featuring high-performance graphics, MIPI-CSI, Soundwire, I²S, etc. And it also provides high-speed networking interfaces of NBase-T and 25GbE KR signals to address the needs of various applications.
