PRESS RELEASE

CMx-SLx

ADLINK Technology, a global provider of leading edge computing solutions that drive data-to-decision applications across industries, has introduced a new PCI/104-Express, Single Board Computer (SBC) featuring 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and supporting up to 16 GB of DDR4-ECC soldered memory. The CMx-SLx delivers ruggedness by design and offers an extended lifecycle for industrial automation, transportation, energy, and defense applications requiring ultra-rugged stability with the added benefit of lower power consumption.

“The CMx-SLx is designed to address application requirements that demand intensive computing and graphics, high-speed I/O and improved memory bandwidth,” said Bjoern Reiss, product manager in the Embedded Platform and Modules business unit at ADLINK. “Unlike prior single board computers, this product offers advanced CPU and I/O performance and supports onboard DDR4 ECC memory, making it the perfect solution for many high-performance applications.”

The ADLINK CMx-SLx provides three digital display interface channels, which support one Micro HDMI port, one MiniDP port, and one 18/24-bit single channel LVDS port. The CMx-SLx also features configurable expansion capabilities with four PCIe x1 ports and one PCIe x16 (PEG) port. Other features include two Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, two SATA 3.0 ports, one onboard SATA SSD, one USB 3.1 port, up to six USB 2.0 ports, two RS-232 COM ports, eight GPIOs, and Intel® HD Audio integrated via the DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

Designed to withstand 50G shock and 12G vibration per MIL-STD- 202F, and with an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, the CMx-SLx is ideally suited for operation in harsh environments. The CMx-SLx also includes built-in SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) platform functionality for easy integration of hardware monitoring and control.

Custom CMx-SLx models are available to suit specific application requirements. Contact your local ADLINK sales representative for complete details on product variants, custom options, and accessories.
