Solution and Benefit
A truly rugged COM Express solution
From the selection of peripheral components, through circuit design, to extensive temperature validation test, Portwell had the know-how to fulfill the customer's requirement for operation in extreme temperatures, and designed a solution that operated reliably in harsh conditions. Furthermore, in order to meet high g-force, all components were mounted on board with conformal coating.
Tailor-made for rugged embedded applications
Tailor-made pin definition provides great flexibility and is just one of the many features Portwell offer customers looking for COM Express module solutions with unique application requirements. During the spec-in process, Portwell customized the BIOS to fulfill this particular customer's demand for boot up in 1.8 seconds to initial missile system and instant launch necessary to intercept an incoming attacking missile.
Upgradable with time-to-market benefit
The customer selected a Portwell solution utilizing the first generation Intel Pentium™ M processor family with Mobile Intel® 945GME Express Chipset, which can be upgraded to the new 3rd generation Core i solution. Advantaging the Intel x86 architecture's easy upgrading benefits, the customer needed to change only the COM Express card without the need for extra software or hardware: a simple "plug and play" action that sped up time-to-market.
