Portwell Takes Intel Atom Processor E3800 Series-Based Ultra Low-Power Qseven Product Portfolio to the Next Level

Press release date: June 10, 2014

New PQ7-M106IL Qseven Module Passes Harsh Environment Tests Supporting Industrial Temperature Range of -40ºC to 85ºC  

FREMONT, CA. -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., (http://www.portwell.com) a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and a Premier member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, announces great news for OEMs and ODMs whose applications require an ultra-compact platform and a wide operating temperature range: both the PQ7-M106IL Qseven module board and its companion developer carrier board support an industrial temperature range of -40ºC to 85ºC. The new PQ7-M106IL module board is the very latest in the company’s growing portfolio of Qseven module product series. At a mere 70mm x 70mm (2.75½ x 2.75½), the ultra-compact PQ7-M106IL module board supports the Intel® Atom™ processor E3815/E3825/E3826/E3827/E3845 System-on-Chip (SoC) and processor speeds from 1.46GHz to 1.91GHz. The PQ7-M106IL Qseven module board features 8GB system memory; dual independent displays by LVDS/DisplayPort; one Industrial-grade Gigabit Ethernet; four USB ports; two SATA ports; high definition audio; LPC; three PCI-E x1; and one UART interface.

With the introduction of the PQ7-M106IL, Portwell has now fully unveiled its Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 series-based product offering, replacing its Intel® Atom™ processor E6xx series based products. The PQ7-M106IL works with Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows 8 and Linux™, delivering very strong initial performance.  Furthermore, the board is compliant with the vibration spectrum which exceeds 26rms (root mean squared). It also suitable for transportation and traffic management system embedded in our daily lives.

Efficient, Effective and Economical Solutions Using Qseven Technology  
When designing the PQ7-M106IL, Portwell applied the successful mother-daughter-boards design concept from the COM Express form factor and came up with an even more compact, efficient and economical combination. The ultra low power Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 is housed on the PQ7-M106IL module board, while the necessary connectors are on a development kit carrier board. In this way, Portwell was able to maximize Qseven technology to produce a unit that not only outputs under 5W for fanless applications, but also supports an extended -40ºC to 85ºC industrial temperature range.

Moreover, customers benefit from the PQ7-M106IL’s compact, 70mm x70mm, footprint on the overall cost savings Portwell achieved from the smaller components used to make the boards.

Expanding Product Portfolio Based on Intel® Atom™ Processors  
The Qseven module has been enhanced by Portwell in response to market demand for an even smaller form factor to take advantage of the Intel® Atom™ processor’s already compact design.

Portwell’s innovation efforts are not limited to a single product or product family. Since its initial inception, Portwell’s expanding Intel Atom processor-based Qseven portfolio has grown to include industrial temperature range support. Portwell now delivers an extensive and ever-expanding Intel Atom processor-based product portfolio featuring Qseven, Nano-ITX, ETX, COM Express, and Mini-ITX.
