Greater Flexibility in Ethernet Connectivity

ECX-BDW-U is a 3.5” single board computer powered by 5th Generation Intel® Core™ / Celeron® U-Series ultra-low-power processors. The ECX-BDW-U enables a superior visual experience with up to 24 % better graphics performance and up to 50 % faster video conversion in comparison to models with previous generation Intel® processors.

More Ethernet Ports

In addition to 2x DP, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 and 8-bit DIO, ECX-BDW-U has three GbE LAN ports, providing users with greater flexibility in Ethernet connectivity.

Expansion Possible

It reserves two mPCIe slots (one is shared with mSATA) and allows users to extend SSD storage, wireless network or other possible applications.

Extended Operating Temperature

Extended temperature models are available, allowing for operation under extreme high, low or radically fluctuating temperatures, which is common in industrial environments.
