The cExpress-KL is a COM ExpressR COM.0 R2.1 Type 6 Compact size module featuring the 64-bit 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 and IntelR CeleronR Ultra-Low TDP processors (formerly “Kaby Lake U”) with CPU, memory controller, graphics processor and I/O hub on a single chip.

Leveraging the benefits provided by the 7th generation Intel® Core™ and Celeron™ System-on-Chip, the cExpress-KL is specifically designed for customers who need optimum processing and graphics performance with suitable power consumption using Intel’s Configurable TDP in a long product life solution.

The cExpress-KL’s Intel® processors support Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (up to 2 cores, 4 threads) and up to 32 GB of non-ECC DDR4 dual-channel memory at 1866/2133 MHz in dual stacked SODIMM sockets to provide excellent overall performance. Integrated Intel® Generation 9 Low Power Graphics includes features such as OpenGL 4.4/4.3, DirectX 11.3/11, Intel® Clear Video HD Technology, Advanced Scheduler 2.0, 1.0, XPDM support, and DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA2) support for AVC/VC1/MPEG2/HEVC/VP8/JPEG hardware decode and AVC/MPEG2/HEVC/VP8/JPEG hardware encode.

Graphics outputs include dual-channel 18/24-bit LVDS (eDP by build option), two DDI ports supporting HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort and VGA (by build option). The cExpress-KL 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.

The cExpress-KL features a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, up to six PCIe Gen3 ports (build option), four USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, and three SATA 6Gb/s ports. Support is provided for SMBus and I2C. The module is equipped with SPI AMI EFI BIOS with CMOS backup, supporting embedded features such as a remote console, CMOS backup, hardware monitor, and watchdog timer.


At the heart of SEMA is the Board Management Controller (BMC) supporting SEMA functions. The SEMA Extended EAPI provides access to all functions and can be integrated into the user’s own applications. The SEMA GUI and SEMA Command Line Interface allow monitoring, control, and use of the SEMA parameters and functions directly on your device for test and demonstration purposes. Optionally SEMA supports also remote procedure calls – please refer to SEMA Software Installation Guide.

Detailed forensic information is available after system or module failures. The BMC Power-Up Error Log function provides detailed information about the history of failures that may have occurred during power-up sequences. Log information includes e.g. error number, flags, restart event, power cycles, boot count, status, CPU temperature, and board temperature. Moreover minimum and maximum temperature of the CPU and system is available, as well as HDD S.M.A.R.T information- all of which can be used to analyze system or module failure in detail.

SEMA is available for Linux and Windows operating systems and for various HW platforms
