Portwell provides organizations with Computer-on-modules solutions for all their needs. Whether you require a low-power-computing, low-cost, or high-performance computing processor, we have you covered. Computer-on-modules, also known as COM express modules or COMe or COMe boards, are highly integrated computer boards that feature CPU, memory, – the common I/O of PCIe, SATA, USB, audio, graphics, and Ethernet. Portwell’s computer-on-module includes COM-Expres Extended, COM-Express Basic, COM-Express Compact, COM-Express Mini, QSeven, SMARC, and more. All the above requirements you’ll find here.

The Type 10 COM-Express Module pin-out definition in the mini form factor (84 x 55mm) is defined for low-power platforms to match the feature and performance requirements while maintaining the support of graphic and optimized I/O for small form factor or portable devices.
The Type 7 COM-Express module pin-out definition in the Compact(95 x 95mm) form factor is designed for server-grade applications which require high-speed data and network throughput. It does this by replacing all of the audio and graphics interfaces while reducing the number of SATA ports and USB 2.0 signals and replacing them with 8x PCIe lanes and 4x 10Gb Ethernet ports.
The Type 6 COM-Express Basic(125 x 95mm) & Compact(95 x 95mm) form factor is defined by PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG). The Type 6 COM-Express provides standardized module interfaces including storage, graphic control, video Interfaces (LVDS, VGA & DDI), and USB 3.0 to meet different application requirements from the various vertical market.
The name Q7 is derived from “quadratic,” as noted by the Q, and seven refers to the 7 x 7 cm (70 x 70mm) size of the module. This technology evolution is built upon a more petite size footprint mobile processor and chipset. The Qseven module standard provides high-performance and low power consumption interfaces for mobile and battery-operated applications with a standard power consumption equal to or less than 12W, which matches application requirements for fan-less operations by way of heat spreader mechanical interfaces. Unlike other module standards, Qseven does not require an expensive board-to-board connector. It utilizes a very affordable MXM card slot with 230 pins in a 0.5 mm configuration. This slot is already being used for graphics cards in laptop computers, so it is capable of high-speed PEG data transfers.
The SMARC is a versatile small Computer-on-Module form factor that requires low power, low costs, and high performance. Module sizes are defined: 82mm x 50mm and 82mm x 80mm with 314 edge fingers that mate with a low profile 314 pins 0.5mm pitch right angle connector.
Though these SMARC modules boast broad integration and power-efficient processing capabilities, they are particularly well-suited to industrial automation, transportation, and communication equipment applications, to name a few—though this is hardly a comprehensive list of uses.

Portwell’s COM-Express®, Qseven, and SMARC development (carrier) boards help customers evaluate and establish customer application programs before starting the carrier board design. It can be used as a reference design to reduce customers’ design effort and assess performance and computing reliability early.
