BCM's embedded industrial motherboard product line includes Q7, Type 6/Type 10 COMe module, Pico-ITX, 3.5" Single Board Computer (SBC), mini-ITX, Micro ATX, and EATX High Performance Computing (HPC) form factors, ranging from ultra-small to full-function, full-features industrial ATX motherboards. Designed with the LGA processor socket onboard, the motherboards support scalable computing performance including Intel® Pentium®, Celeron®, Core™ i9/i7/i5/i3 and Xeon processors. Each motherboard is equipped with long life components with a life cycle of 5-7 years, up to 15 years on select models. For custom design ODM/OEM service on industrial motherboards, please contact BCMSales@bcmcom.com for more detail.
HPC stands for High Performance Computing. It is a powerful computing platform that provides server-class performance but with BCM’s extended lifecycle and revision control not available from the typical providers of these types of server motherboards and systems.
Mini-ITX, 6.7"x6.7", motherboard is a very popular multi-purpose form factor for industrial computing applications. mini-ITX provides scalable performance, mobility, lower power consumption of less than 100 watts, rich I/O connectors, rich expansion slots and possibly fanless operation.
Micro ATX (mATX), 9.6"x9.6", form factor supports desktop processors and has 4 or less expansion slots (combination of PCI and PCI Express), and rich I/O interfaces. It provides balance between the performance and expandability and is ideal for those budget and space sensitive applications.
ATX motherboard, 12"x9.6", provides multiple PCI and PCI Express expansion slots and rich I/O interfaces including SATA, multiple COM and USB ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports. The ATX motherboard delivers stable and scalable performances from low power to the latest multi-core processors.
COM Express Module, or System-on-Module (SOM), or computer-on-module (COM), is a faster time-to-market and budget saving solution. It is a small and reliable embedded form factor for critical or industrial applications. It is a core logic motherboard that is ready to use with a compatible carrier board. Available in COMe Type 6, COMe Type 10.
Pico-ITX, 3.94”x2.83, is an ultra small, palm size motherboard and provides optimized onboard IO interfaces. It is design for space constrained, ultra compact or mobile applications that requires low power, light weight and mobility.
3.5 inch single board computer(SBC) is a complete computer built on a small form factor measured 5.7" x 4" in industrial standard. This solution is ideal for space constrained, compact applications that do not require too many expansion slot interfaces or peripheral functions.
Qseven module, 2.75"x2.75", is a small, highly integrated computer-on-module with CPU, memory and/or storage onboard. It requires a carrier board for I/O interfaces. The Q7 module is smaller than any other computer-on-module standards such as COM Express, ETX or XTX and is ideal for applications that require very low power consumption.
BCM provides ARM (Advanced RISC Machine) motherboards targeting low cost embedded ODM/OEM appliances, vehicle PCs, portable computing devices, thin clients, portable game consoles, digital signage/players and many more. ARM motherboards are ultra low power and mobility, ultra small form factor design, and ultra low cost.
