Axiomtek Announces Upgraded COM Express Basic Type 6 Module CEM500 Based on Intel® Xeon® Processor and CM236 Chipset


Axiomtek, a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency - is announcing its new version of the CEM500, which is now supported the 14 nm Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1505M v5 with Intel® CM236 chipset. The Intel® Xeon®-based CEM500 supports ECC DDR4-2133 memory up to a total of 32GB. Four SATA-600 with RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 are available for enhancing storage reliability, capacity, and performance. With its outstanding computing performance and low power consumption design, the industrial-grade Intel® Xeon®-based COM Express Basic Type 6 is targeted at telecommunication, medical imaging, digital signage, gaming machines, military, human machine interface, industrial automation controllers and Industrial IoT applications.


“The Axiomtek CEM500 offers a great range of processor choices with the Intel® Xeon® E3, Intel® Core™ family processors and expansion capabilities which allow developers to configure their solutions based on specified performance requirements. ECC memory is supported by module utilizing the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1505M v5 and Intel® CM236 chipset,” said Yifei Wang, product manager of PM Division at Axiomtek. “The rugged COM Express computer-on-module Basic Type 6 supports an industrial operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C for applications in extreme harsh environments. The Intel® Skylake-based CEM500 comes with the outstanding Intel® Gen 9 HD Graphics enables this module to drive multiple 4K displays without the need of a discrete graphics card. Besides, it provides three independent displays via three DDI channels supporting HDMI/DisplayPort/DVI and a LVDS interface, while an optional embedded DisplayPort (eDP) is also available. Axiomtek also offers an optional CEB94006 baseboard that provides ports for most of the CEM500’s I/O.”


The Axiomtek CEM500 comes with serial signaling protocols, including one PCIe x16 v3.0, eight PCIe x1, four SATA-600, one Gigabit Ethernet supporting Wake-on-LAN, PXE Boot ROM with Intel® i219LM Ethernet controller, one HD audio linked to baseboard, one LPC interface, one SPI interface, one I2C interface, 4-channel Digital I/O, eight USB 2.0, and four USB 3.0. The module runs on +12V or +5VSB power with both AT and ATX modes. To ensure reliability and stability, hardware monitoring, TPM, Watchdog Timer and AMI uEFI BIOS with Intel® Active Management Technology 11.0 are supported. AXView 2.0, Axiomtek’s intelligent remote management software, is also available for the CEM500.
