The Express-BD7 is a COM Express COM.0 R3.0 Basic Size Type 7 module supporting the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor D and Intel Pentium D processor system-on-chip (SoC) (formerly “Broadwell-DE”). The Express-BD7 is specifically designed for customers who need excellent computing performance with balanced power consumption and multiple 10G Ethernet connectivity in a long product life solution.
The Express-BD7 features Intel® Virtualization Technology (including VT-x, VT-d, EPT), Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (up to 16 cores, 32 threads), Intel Trusted Execution Technology, Intel AES-NI Technology, and DDR4 ECC (or non-ECC) dual-channel memory at 1866/2133/2400 MHz (dependent on SoC SKU) to provide excellent overall performance.
An integrated Intel 10G Ethernet controller supports two 10GBASE-KR interfaces, relevant sideband signals, and NC-SI. The Express-BD7 is designed to serve customers with optimized computing capability per watt and high-speed connectivity requirements who want to outsource the custom core logic of their systems for reduced development time.
The Express-BD7 has dual stacked SODIMM sockets supporting up to 32 GB of DDR4 ECC (or non-ECC) memory. Input/output features include 16 PCIe Gen3 lanes, up to 8 PCIe Gen2 lanes, a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.0/2.0 ports, and SATA 6 Gb/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, hardware monitor, and watchdog timer.
