DFI MTH968 Intel Core Ultra “Meteor Lake” COM Express module to power industrial AI PCs

DFI MTH968 is a COM Express Compact Type 6 computer-on-module equipped with an Intel Core Ultra Meteor Lake processor designed for industrial AI PCs thanks to the integrated Neural Processor Unit (Intel AI Boost) and designed for industrial automation, smart transportation, and smart agriculture.

It’s not quite the first COM Express module based on the new Core Ultra Meteor Lake SoCs, as we previously covered the ADLINK cExpress-MTL and conga-TC700 with a similar range of features, and the MTH968 provides another alternative with the company highlighting a fanless wide temperature design operating from -40°C to 85°C, DDR5 memory, and NVMe SSD storage (soldered on module).
