BC246C industrial ATX motherboard supports the 8th gen. Intel® Xeon E processors with ECC memory targeting server, data center and enterprise applications

BCM BC246C long lifecycle industrial ATX motherboard supporting 8th generation Intel® Xeon E processors with ECC memory support targeting embedded server and enterprise applications

BCM, an industrial motherboard solution provider and an associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, introduces its new long lifecycle BC246C industrial ATX motherboard. Coupled with the Intel® C246 express chipset, the BC246C is based on the 8th generation Intel® processor architecture.

The BC246C motherboard is equipped with LGA 1151 CPU socket enabling scalable CPU performance powered by Intel® Xeon E, Core™-i, Pentium® and Celeron® processors, codenamed Coffee Lake. When using the Intel® Xeon E or compatible processors, the motherboard provides Error-Correcting Code (ECC) support.

The Intel® Xeon E processor family is a server-class processor. It provides ECC memory function that helps to detect and repair single-bit memory errors and to perform in always-on usage scenarios. Faster memory speeds and larger memory capacities can increase the possibility of system memory errors which can lead to data corruption or cause a system crash. Data changing (corrupted data) in memory can impact every aspect of the business computing systems.

The BC246C motherboard is designed for OEMs and System Integrators that require Intel® Xeon E processor performance and ECC memory support but also require the extended lifecycle and strict revision control such as healthcare, simulation, or enterprise applications.

In addition to ECC and Xeon E support, the BC246C also supports TPM 2.0 and provides rich expansion slots such as PCIe x16, x4, x1, PCI and M.2. For video performance, the BC246C supports three independent displays via HDMI, DP, and VGA and a robust set of I/O interfaces including USB 3.1 Gen 2, six COM ports and five SATA III with RAID.

Product Features:

  • LGA1151 socket supports 2C/4C/6C Intel® Xeon E, Core™-i, Pentium®, Celeron® processors
  • 4 x DIMM sockets support up to 64 GB Dual Channel DDR4 2400 MHz system memory
  • Supports ECC Memory using compatible processors
  • 1 x PCIe x16, 2 x PCIe x4, 2 x PCIe x1, 2 x PCI, 2 x M.2
  • Supports Triple Displays
  • 1 x HDMI, 2 x DisplayPorts, 1 x VGA
  • Onboard USB: 8 x USB 2.0 and 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Header (2 Ports on Header)
  • External USB: 6 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Speed up to 5Gbps) and 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C (Speed up to 10Gbps) Connectors
  • 6 x COM Ports
  • TPM 2.0
  • ATX Form Factor (12" x 9.6")
