DFI, launches a Type 6 COM Express Basic module, the HM960-QM87, in its mobile-based Intel QM87 product line. This COM Express Basic module is powered by the BGA 1364 packaging technology supporting the 4th generation Intel Core processor family. The enhancements in CPU performance, media and graphics capabilities, security and power efficiency in the 4th generation Intel Core processor family are driving innovation. In order to provide smooth flash playback and rich 2D/3D graphics with high quality playback, HM960-QM87 is equipped with the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 engine. Targeted at gaming, media, and automation applications, this model offers enhanced graphics performance via the 1 VGA, 1 LVDS, and 3 DDI (HDMI/DVI/DP) interfaces, allowing you to choose the best combination to suit a variety of requirements. The COM Express Basic module features 2 DDR3L SODIMM sockets that support up to 16GB. Offering persistent data storage, the optional onboard SSD is a lot faster than conventional rotating hard disks. HM960-QM87 taking full advantage of the Intel QM87 chipset provides multiple expansion interfaces, including 1 PCIe x16, 7 PCIe x1, 1 LAN, 12 USB, 4 SATA 3.0, 1 LPC, 1 I²C, 1 SMBus, 2 serial, and 4-bit input and 4-bit output GPIO for device controls. These flexible interfaces allow your systems to process a higher data load and provide faster loading of frequently used applications. For the purpose of meeting more requirements, DFI starts developing the next COM Express Basic module, HM961-QM87. Different from HM960-QM87, this module provides ECC memory for intelligent 24/7 systems that need a reliable platform.
