The CPU-163-16 is a rugged COM Express module designed to meet the requirements for Industrial, Transportation and Defense rugged fanless applications.

Compliant with PICMG COM Express® R2.1, Type 10, the CPU-163-16 is a Mini (84x55mm) form factor module based on the Intel Atom E3900 processor family with 2 and 4 cores, up to 8GB ECC RAM and up to 64GB eMMC.

Other features include high speed interfaces: one Gbit Ethernet, two SATA 3.0, two USB 3.0 and eight USB 2.0, four PCIe x1 Gen 2, one LVDS and one DDI (supporting HDMI, DVI and DP).

The CPU-163-16 features soldered down ECC memory and flash storage, making it the ideal hardware platform for applications requiring long life cycle, resistance to vibration and reliable data retention, even in extended temperature.

Supported Operating Systems include Linux and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. The CPU-163-16 is also an ideal building block for IoT projects, supporting core Everyware Software Framework (ESF) capabilities. ESF is a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi middleware for IoT gateways. Full porting of ESF on the customer carrier is available as a Professional Service.

Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF delivers ready-to-use Field protocols (including Modbus, OPC-UA, S7), MQTT connectivity, web-based visual data flow programming and deep configuration. ESF is also integrated with Everyware Cloud (EC), Eurotech IoT Integration Platform (separately available), enabling advanced diagnostics, provisioning, and full remote device access and management.

Professional Services are available for the CPU-163-16, starting from BIOS personalization and including carrier board design, system development and production. Deep module customization, such as feature changes are also available to select customers.
