COM Express Device Drivers

If you purchase a Sealevel Relio industrial computer or COM Express system that includes a solid-state drive, you have the option to have Sealevel install the operating system (OS) and necessary software drivers. You will need to purchase an applicable OS license. Call us for details.

If you purchase a computer or COM Express system without a solid-state drive or OS, you will need to install the applicable drivers. Some drivers apply to the hardware on the COM Express module, while some are for devices present on the carrier board. The following table lists the devices that will require drivers.
