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.
