Portwell Releases New Qseven 2.1 Module with
Intel® Atom™ Processor E3900 Series,
Pentium® and Celeron® Processors


FREMONT, CA. – January 17, 2017 -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., (http://www.portwell.com),a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, today announced its newest Qseven 2.1 module with x86 based processor. The model series named as PQ7-M108 (70x70mm), is based on the latest Intel® 14nm Atom™, Celeron® and Pentium® processors (codenamed Apollo Lake). The new Intel® Atom™ E3900 series embedded SoC integrates the Intel® Gen 9 graphics with triple display support in high resolution, as well as four vector image processing units, and Intel’s Time Coordinated Computing (TCC) Technology, which is said to coordinate and synchronize peripherals and networks of connected devices to within a microsecond. Other than graphic performance, the new PQ7-M108 Qseven 2.1 modules are designed with the latest mobile series memory LPDDR4 at 2400MT/s speed which enhances field application in, for example, smart building control and Human Machine Interface (HMI) devices.

The PQ7-M108 is also embedded with Infineon’s OPTIGA™ TRUST IC which is designed to protect embedded systems from unauthorized accessories, replacement parts or disposables. With the unique Infineon data authentication feature, end devices that are built with the Portwell PQ7-M108 module are capable of offering protection against unauthorized re-use or re-provisioning of original parts.

The Qseven 2.1 based PQ7-M108 supports its five available Intel Apollo Lake processors with up to 8GB of LPDDR4 (2400MT/s) RAM and eMMC5.0 up to 64GB on board. In addition to supporting Linux® and Microsoft® Windows® 10 like the other modules, the PQ7-M108 also supports Android®, Microsoft® Windows® IoT Core, and VxWorks® 7 on request.

The multimedia features on PQ7-M108 include dual-channel LVDS (up to 1920 x 1200 @60Hz), which can be swapped out for eDP, and two other DDI option to either DisplayPort 1.2 (up to 4096 x 2160 pixels) or HDMI 1.4b (up to 3840 x 2160).

The PQ7-M108 is further equipped with 3 x USB 3.0or 4x USB 2.0, 1x SDIO 3.0, 2x SATA 3, and up to 4x PCIe Gen2 lanes. Also onboard are 1x I2C, 1x UART, HDA co-lay with I2S, 2x SPI, and a JTAG for debugging function. The module includes Portwell’s Board Controller and ACPI 5.0 power management, and can handle industrial -40 to 85°C temperatures.

The PQ7-M108 can be custom built with 14nm-fabricated Intel® Atom™ Processor E39xx series, Intel® Celeron® Processor N3350, or Intel® Pentium® Processor N4200:

  • Intel Atom x7-E3950 — 4x cores @ 1.6GHz/2.0GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 12W TDP
  • Intel Atom x5-E3940 — 4x cores @ 1.6GHz/1.8GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 9.5W TDP
  • Intel Atom x5-E3930 — 2x cores @ 1.3GHz/1.8GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 6.5W TDP
  • Intel Celeron N3350 — 2x cores @ 1.1GHz/2.4GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 6W TDP
  • Intel Pentium N4200 — 4x cores @ 1.1GHz/2.5GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 6W TDP
