Product overview

The COMXpress SOM is a COM Express Basic form factor Module, Type 7 standard. It is based on an Intel® Stratix® 10 SoC FPGA.

The Stratix® 10 is one of the best-performing and latest FPGA families developed by Intel®. This device is optimized for PFGA applications that require high transceiver bandwidth and core fabric performance.

Thanks to a system-on-chip (SoC) (an integrated circuit inside the FPGA, most often a CPU (central processing unit) processor), the FPGA can better control the board.

System-on-modules (SOMs) are small, integrated single-board computers. The module’s small size and strong FPGA make it perfectly suited to embedded and industrial markets.

Target markets include HPC and analytics, acceleration, and intelligent vision & video processing.

The Stratix® 10 SoC SOM is shipped with a custom heatsink and its board support package.
We offer a PCIe carrier board as an optional extra product, or we can design a custom carrier board.

Benefits & features

  • COM Express Basic form factor Module, Type 7 standard
  • Intel® Stratix® 10 SX Technology - 2800 KLE density
  • Designed for High Performance Computing and Acceleration
  • 32 PCI Express lanes
  • IO and Transceiver extension connector

The COMXpress Stratix® 10 SoC system-on-module is an FPGA development board, specially optimized for embedded applications thanks to its small size and its low-power consumption.

Thanks to a perfectly suited Stratix® 10 FPGA design, this evaluation board offers rapid prototyping for quick time to market.

The Stratix® 10 is one of the best-performing and latest FPGA families developed by Intel®. Delivering an unprecedented 2X core performance, up to 70% lower power (leading to lower power consumption), up to 10.2 million LEs, and the highest level of system integration, the Intel® Stratix® 10 microprocessor is uniquely positioned to address next-generation, high-performance systems in the most demanding applications. This semiconductor device is optimized for FPGA applications that require the highest transceiver bandwidth and core fabric performance.

FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) are used to offer high-capacity logic and memory storage, while maintaining a module size suitable for embedded solutions.

Our Stratix® 10 SoC SOM is developed with an SoC FPGA. The system-on-chip (SoC) is an integrated circuit inside the FPGA, most often a CPU processor (central processing unit), that allows the FPGA to better control the board. The Arria® 10 SoC FPGA combines the flexibility and ease of programming of a CPU with the configurability and parallel processing power of an FPGA. The module can be used as a slave (using GX) or as a host (using the SoC) in high-performance computing systems.


The type 7 interface provides an extremely high PCIe bandwidth through its 32-lane Gen3.


Our Stratix® 10 FPGA module offers primary interfaces such as a tailor-made PCB, transceivers, DDR4, high-speed links, Gigabit Ethernet, and more. We provide online technical support for debugging, schematics and development tools, datasheets, and certifications may be available on request.
