A COM Express Type 2 module supports the 64-bit Intel Core i7 / i5 processor with CPU, memory controller and graphics processor on the same chip. Based on the latest Mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset, the Express-CB from Adlink Technology is specifically designed for customers who need high-level processing and graphics performance in a long product life solution.

Integrated graphics support includes features such as OpenGL 2.1, DirectX10 and Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology (Intel DVMT 5.0). Graphics outputs include CRT, LVDS and Embedded DisplayPort. The Express-CB is specifically designed for customers with high-performance processing graphics requirements who want to outsource the custom core logic of their systems for reduced development time. Target applications include: Medical Diagnostic Equipment and Medical Imaging, Portable Medical Devices, Instrumentation, Industrial Automation, Transportation, Data Storage, Infotainment, Gaming, Video Preprocessing, POS and Kiosk.

The Core i7 / i5 processors support  Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (2 cores, 4 threads) and up to 8 Gbytes of DDR3 dual-channel memory at 1066 MHz. Intel Flexible Display Interface and Direct Media Interface provide high-speed connectivity to the QM57 Express chipset. 

The Express-CB has dual stacked SODIMM sockets for up to 8 Gbyte DDR3 memory. The Intel Mobile QM57 Express chipset integrates CRT and single/dual-channel 18/24-bit LVDS display output. In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, a multiplexed PCI Express Graphics x16 (PEG x16) bus is available for discrete graphics expansion, Embedded DisplayPort or general-purpose x8, x4 or x1 PCI Express connectivity.

The Express-CB features a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, up to eight USB 2.0 ports and four SATA 3 Gbit/s ports with optional support for RAID 0/1/5/10. Additional storage interfaces include an optional SATA-based Solid-State Disk (8/16/32 Gbyte) and a single IDE (PATA) channel. Legacy support is also provided for 32-bit PCI, LPC, SMBus and I2C. The module is equipped with an AMI EFI BIOS with CMOS backup, supporting embedded features such as remote console, CMOS backup, hardware monitor and watchdog timer.
