BCM Advanced Research A Leading Industrial Computing Provider Since 1990
Intel Skylake Platform Q170 and H110 Series

BCM introduces five new 6th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor SoC industrial motherboards in uATX, mini-ITX and COM Express form factors including a new High Reliability line

BCM Advanced Research, a leading designer and manufacturer of industrial motherboards and systems since 1990, and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, today launched five new industrial motherboards based on the latest 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor family (codename Skylake). The new BCM motherboards include RX170Q and RX110H (micro-ATX), MX170QD and MX110H mini-ITX, and the ESM-QM170 (COM Express module) offer dramatically higher CPU and stunning graphics performance, a wide range of power and feature scalability, and new advanced features that boost IoT designs from the edge to the cloud.

For the Q-series industrial motherboards, BCM has created a High Reliability line of products. The MX170QD and RX170Q are equipped with gold plated pins for its critical connectors such as memory, SATA, PCIe, power, M.2, and USB 3.0. Additionally, these connectors are locking type. This combination of gold plating and locking ensures superior high speed signal conductivity, wear and corrosion resistance in tough environments, and that critical connections stay connected. The RX170QD and the MX170QD are equipped with the Intel® Q170 chipset and LGA1151 socket to support 6th generation Intel® Core™ i3, i5, and i7 processors as well as Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® processors, providing high performance with rich expansion slots and high speed I/O interfaces such as multiple PCIe x16/x4/x1, mini-PCIe and M.2 sockets; dual Display Ports, HDMI, LVDS, optional eDP, and USB 3.0 connectors. This series supports three onboard independent displays as well as Intel® Active Management Technology 10 (Intel® AMT). The RX170Q and the MX170QD are ideal for applications that require high reliability, higher system and graphics performance, and the ability to process multiple complicated tasks simultaneously. These applications include medical imaging systems, luggage x-ray scanning systems, industrial control and automation, robotics, test & measurement, and digital signal processing.

The RX110H and the MX110H are BCM’s answer to the high performance value segment. These motherboards are equipped with the Intel® H110 chipset and LGA11551 socket to support the 6th Gen Intel® Core™, Pentium® and Celeron® processors. These are cost optimized motherboards for applications requiring less I/O expandability and do not need enterprise features such as Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT), Intel® vPro™, or RAID. These motherboards also support the 6th generation Intel® Core™ i3, i5, and i7 processors as well as Intel® Celeron® processors. This series of products support dual onboard display via DisplayPorts, DVI-D and/or LVDS, as well as provide high speed I/O interfaces including SATA III and USB 3.0. The RX110H and MX110H deliver extraordinary embedded/industrial computing value yet still meet the high CPU performance requirements for everyday industrial computing systems for retail, gaming, Kiosk, security, and the industrial control industries.

“We listened hard to our customer base when designing these products.” said Tom Skibinski, Sr. VP of Sales and Marketing at BCM. “Our true industrial/embedded customers wanted higher reliability and greater ingenuity from our flagship Q-series products to help address some of their end product field challenges at a base component level. They also wanted a robust feature-set so a single core motherboard could be used across multiple product lines leveraging their development efforts. We believe we’ve succeeded in delivering that product.” continued Skibinski. “The strategy of offering so much value in our 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processor platforms as a standard stocking product really differentiates BCM from the host of non-traditional motherboard manufacturers trying to throw their hat into the embedded PC market segment.”

“The new 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor family offers dramatically fast CPU and graphics performance, a wide range of power and feature scalability, and new advanced features that boost IoT designs from the edge to the cloud. The technological innovations of this new product family will allow our IoT ecosystem partner BCM to reach new markets and provide greater value to current customers,” said Samuel Cravatta, product line director, Internet of Things Group, Intel.
