Overview

DFI, a leading provider offering a wide range of embedded products for industrial applications, introduces its latest COM Express Type 6 module powered by the Intel® Pentium®/Celeron® Processor N3000 Family – BW968. When compared to previous generations, the latest Compact supports 3 independent displays up to 4K x 2K with a lower 4-6W TDP, and it targets cost-effective applications, including entry-level gaming, banking, ticket machine, and digital signage. With more and more requirements for multiple displays, the Intel® Pentium®/Celeron® Processor-based module is equipped with 3 independent displays (support up to 4K x 2K) to provide stunning graphics performance for superior visual computing in edge devices like gaming machine and digital signage. The mobile-based module featuring ultra-low power (4-6W TDP) design benefits energy efficiency is not only good for the environment, but also saves money. With the energy-saving design, BW968 is well suited for 24/7 operating kiosk such as ticket machine and automated banking machine (ATM). Moreover, the fanless module with DFI’s proprietary design of thin heat spreader can be specially applied in space-limited embedded systems. The BW968 is designed with the optional Intel® Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, a hardware-based security device that addresses the growing concern on boot process integrity and offers better data protection. Thanks to the TPM 2.0 support, DFI’s BW968 is well suited for gaming and banking application. Not to mention, Linux and all popular Microsoft Windows operating systems are supported, including the latest Windows 10, Window 8.1, Windows 7, WES8, and WES7.
