The Express-KL/KLE is a COM ExpressR COM.0 R2.1 Basic Size Type 6 module supporting the 64-bit 7th Generation Intel Core and Xeon processor E3 (codename “Kaby Lake-H”) with Mobile IntelR QM175, HM175, CM238 Chipset. The Express-KL/KLE is specifically designed for customers who need excellent graphics performance and high-level processing performance in a long product life solution.
The Express-KL/KLE features IntelR Hyper-Threading Technology (up to 4 cores, 8 threads) and DDR4 dual-channel memory at 2133/2400 MHz with ECC/non-ECC support determined by CPU/chipset combination to provide excellent overall performance. Intel Flexible Display Interface and Direct Media Interface provide high-speed connectivity from the CPU to the Intel QM175, HM175, CM238 Chipset.
Integrated Intel Generation 9 Graphics includes features such as OpenGL 4.4/4.3/4.2, DirectX 11, IntelR Clear Video HD Technology, Advanced Scheduler 2.0, 1.0, XPDM support, and DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA) support for full H.265/HEVC 10-bit, MPEG2 hardware codec. In addition, High Dynamic Range is supported for enhanced picture color and quality and digital content protection has been upgraded to HDCP 2.2. Graphics outputs include LVDS and three DDI ports supporting HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort and eDP as a build option. The Express-KL/KLE 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 Express-KL/KLE has dual stacked SODIMM sockets supporting up to 32 GB of DDR4 ECC/non-ECC memory. In addition to the onboard integrated graphics, a multiplexed PCIe x16 graphics bus is available for discrete graphics expansion. Input/output features include a single onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, eight PCIe x1 Gen3 lanes, USB 3.0 ports and USB 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.
