Ubiqconn introduces uCOM-AL6C communications module

20 February 2017

Ubiqconn Technology, a manufacturer specializing in Embedded IoT and Industrial 4.0 solutions, introduced its COM Express  Type 6 module - uCOM-AL6C, empowered by the 14nm Intel Atom E3900 series processors, formerly Apollo Lake-I. uCOM-AL6C is designed to fit the demanding requirements in Embedded IoT, smart factory, smart edge gateway and other Industrial 4.0 related applications which design of power and space is critical.

Intel Atom x5-E3930, x5-E3940, or x7-E3950 SoC processor offers frequency up to 2.0GHz and TDP as low as 6.5 Watt or above. The adoption of the Intel 14nm Atom SoC series also delivers IoT-oriented platform features including DDR3L-1,600 SO-DIMM up to 8GB, conflict-free Embedded Options Available, Intel Gen9 Graphics 505/500 with 4K support and Intel Quick Sync Video. These technological enhancements enable uCOM-AL6C to function as a core in Embedded IoT and Industrial 4.0 applications, such as production system gateway, automated factory monitoring, real-time sensor data processing, and factory control box.

Built as the core of an Embedded IoT gateway, uCOM-AL6C comes with diversified interface including PCI Express up to 5 lanes, 2 USB3.0 ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 2 SATA 6Gb/s ports, 2 Serial ports (Rx/Tx signals only), and 4 GPIO (SD signal muxed with GPIO, controlled by BIOS setting) to enable connections with carrier boards as well as legacy industrial devices and equipment.
