ICOP Technology launches the Vortex86EX2 on 3.5 and PC/104 form factor

February 21, 2019

    Taking advantage of DMP's latest Vortex86EX2 two-core CPU, ICOP is glad to announce the
VEX2-6427 and VEX2-6454.

    Below you can find more information about them: 

VEX2-6427: A solution for users that allows for easy modernization for legacy systems. 

Product page

  • Form factor: 3.5” CPU board.
  • Feature I/O: 
    1. COM ports x10
    2. CAN Bus x2
    3. I2C x2
    4. 12-bit ADC, etc

VEX2-6454: A solution which is easier for user to migrate the new technology in legacy system.

Product page

  • Form factor: PC/104 CPU board.
  • Feature I/O:
    1. 16-bit full ISA bus.
    2. eMMC storage on board.
    3. MiniPCIe, etc.



Main benefits compared to ICOP’s VDX/VSX series:

    Compared to ICOP's VDX Vortex86DX 800MHz product line, the new VEX2 series gets 25% better operation performance of VDX series while running at 600MHz; the reasons are: 

        1. Manufacturing process upgraded from 90 nm to 65 nm.

        2. CPU instruction upgrade.

        3. DRAM upgraded from DDR2 to DDR3.

        4. Price is 10% - 20% lower than the VDX 800MHz series.

Instruction enhancement of Vortex86EX2:

    VEX2 series supports up to  Linux kernel version 4.14. And thanks to backwards compatibility, the VEX2 platform can easily support most of the software currently running on the VDX platform without any migration hassles.


Extend the product of life in your application:

    While VDX series is widely held in many industrial applications and ICOP will keep supplying it at least until year 2022, we suggest customers to consider the new VEX2 platform as an alternative solution with better performance, lower power consumption and a lower cost for new projects and to extend current projects’ life cycles.
