The Portwell PCOM-B65A is a COM Express Type 6 Basic size module based on the Intel® Core™ Ultra processor platform (formerly Meteor Lake U & H series). Intel Core Ultra is the first processor built on Intel® 4 process, and the first to use Foveros 3D advanced packaging technology. With AI acceleration built into every processor integrating CPU, GPU and NPU into a single package, the leading-edge Intel Core Ultra processor series offers advanced computing performance with 15W~45W base power in BGA package to deliver small/sleek form factors and fanless options. More specifically, it features an NPU, or a neural processing unit, a dedicated AI engine to run AI models at low power for greater efficiency. The Intel Core Ultra processors also feature an Intel® Arc™ GPU†
featuring up to 8 Xe-cores (128 EUs), and AI-based Xe Super Sampling (XeSS), enhancing rapid and dynamic visual processing. Furthermore, the PCOM-B65A COM Express module provides (up to) 24x PCIe Gen4 lanes, 4x USB 3.2 Gen 2, and 2x SATA. The extensive and flexible I/O expansion along with high-performance computing featuring dedicated AI acceleration capability cross the CPU, GPU and NPU architectures, make the Portwell PCOM-B65A COM Express Type 6 module suitable for a broad range of embedded applications across various industries from AI edge computing to mission critical use cases, such as medical devices, intelligent healthcare, industrial control, factory automation and smart city.
†Intel® Arc™ GPU only available on select H-Series, Intel® Core™ Ultra processor powered systems with at least 16GB of system memory in a dual-channel configuration.
