Original Press Release:

Portwell Releases a Basic COM Express Module based on Intel Xeon Processor D Product Family

The New PCOM-B634VG Offers Higher Performance and More Accurate Responses for Network Systems 

FREMONT, CA. -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., (, 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, today announces Portwell’s release of the PCOM-B634VG, a Type 6 COM Express Basic (125mm x 95mm) module based on Intel® Xeon® Processor D Product Family (codename Broadwell DE). The COM Express module has optimized value models and service levels by running network applications securely and reliably on virtualization-optimized platforms.

Along with 32-lane PCI Express, the PCOM-634VG utilizes Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 Family built on 14nm process technology and designed into a dense, lower-power system-on-a-chip (SoC) with integrated PCH technology and Intel® Ethernet. The PCOM-B634VG also offers pin-to-pin compatibility and scalability from previous designs to support legacy and new network applications with increased performance at low power. These features translate into reduced manageability cost and improved security, making the PCOM-B634VG an ideal solution for Advanced Mezzanine Cards, CompactPCI and high-density systems in network and data-centric applications.

Portwell’s COM Express Solutions Deployed in High-Density Micro Servers to Scale out Cloud Workloads

Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 Family integrates up to eight CPU cores, each with three 1.5MB cache, of up to 12MB in total. Portwell’s PCOM-B634VG COM Express module provides one PCIe x16 and eight PCIe x1 channels, one standard GbE interface plus two 1/2.5/10GbE Intel® Ethernet interfaces in the C/D pin row. The three SODIMM memory slots support dual-channel DDR3L-1600 or DDR4-2400(select SKUs) configurations with a maximum capacity of 128GB and ECC support. Furthermore, there are four SATA III (6Gbps) interfaces, four USB 3.0, and seven USB 2.0 ports implemented on the module. The processor supports functions like Hyper Threading; Turbo Boost; Intel® Virtualization Technology, set of hardware enhancements improving flexibility and robustness of traditional software; Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) delivering reliable execution; and Intel® AES-NI/Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (Intel® AVX2) instruction set.

Designed on a basic 125mm x 95mm platform, the PCOM-B634VG is backward compatible and seamlessly scales up and ensures interoperability between industrial edge devices and enterprise systems. Meanwhile, Portwell customers can manage certification more easily thanks to generational compatibility.

Design and Customization Services for Broad Applications

In the micro server, storage, networking, and Internet of Things (IoT), the PCOM-B634VG is suitable for high-performance network, high data transfer loads and dense applications.  With exceptional value, Portwell’s PCOM-B634VG COM Express module supplies data integrity, balance I/O, memory bandwidth, and Intel® QuickAssist Technology providing security and compression acceleration.

Portwell’s versatile COM Express modules respond to the ever-evolving network and IoT use cases by enabling designers to partition commodity host-processors from proprietary baseboards, thereby minimizing current and future design risks during the initial phase of development. This design of separating the CPU-upgradable module from system specific I/O carrier boards further safeguards development investments and lowers total cost of ownership. In addition, Portwell can also provide services to clients on carrier board design and development, schematics and BIOS customization.  At Portwell, we strive to create superior products for our customers.
