COM Express Type 7 Card Sports Atom C3000

Congatec has announced the launch of the conga-B7AC, a new Intel Atom C3000 processor based COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Module with 10 GbE support. With a power consumption starting at only 11 W, the board blends the 16-core Atom processor with a four a channel GbE real-time capable network. The feature set is designed for modular industrial micro servers as well as rugged telecom and network equipment, such as small cells, factory gateways and storage systems. It is deployable even in the extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.

The conga-B7AC is based on the new PICMG COM Express 3.0 specification. As a standardized building block, it is well suited for efficient custom designs of very small sized, passively cooled embedded edge systems. The new modules are application ready for redundant, real-time communication and virtualization platforms.

conga-B7AC_pressThey are designed to maximize uptime and resilience, minimize latency and to get the most out of each processing core. Their cloud API for distributed embedded edge servers further provides all the capabilities that data center managers need to remotely monitor system health, power consumption and environmental conditions. With the support of up to 20 PCIe lanes, the new Intel Atom C3000 processor based COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Modules also offer minimum latency for storage devices as well as very fast access lanes to all the various sensor networks, field buses and industrial Ethernet links.

The new conga-B7AC COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Modules are available with 8 different Intel Atom server processors, from the 16-core Intel Atom C3958 processor to the quad-core C3508 for the extended temperature range (-40°C to +85°C). All modules provide up to 48 GB of fast 2400 DDR4 memory with or without error correction code (ECC) depending on customers’ requirements. They offer very high network capabilities with up to 4x 10 GbE and the Network Controller Sideband Interface (NC-SI) for connecting a baseboard management controller (BMC) allowing out-of-band remote manageability. Flexible system extensions including NVMe flash storage can be connected via up to 12x PCIe Gen 3.0 lanes and 8x PCIe Gen 2.0 lanes. 2x SATA 6G ports are available for conventional storage media. Further I/O interfaces include 2x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, LPC, SPI, I2C Bus and 2x UART. Additionally, the module hosts a trusted platform module (TPM) for security sensitive network appliances.

COM Express Solution Serves up NVIDIA GPUs

Connect Tech now offers NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla GPUs on its COM Express + GPU Embedded Platform. The platform combines Intel processors with NVIDIA GPUs into a ruggedized small form factor embedded system. This is an ideal platform to enable deployable multi-Teraflop CUDA solutions in a small rugged solution.

Connect Tech VXG006-AngleThis embedded system exposes all of the latest generation interconnect including: Gbit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and 2.0, DisplayPort++, VGA, LVDS, SATA III, GPIO, I2C, mSATA, miniPCIe, PCIe/104 and SD Card Expansion. The system uses all locking ruggedized positive latching connectors. It eases the challenge of cooling multiple processors with the use of the company’s Unified Thermal Extraction Baseplate that can be mounted directly into an enclosure or chassis for further thermal dissipation.

The COM Express + GPU Embedded System from Connect Tech combines Intel Skylake and Kaby Lake x86 processors with high-end NVIDIA GPUs. Users can choose from highest-end, highest-performance models or from low-powered extended temperature models all ideal for high-end encode/decode video applications or GPGPU CUDA processing applications.

COM Express Card Features Core i7-7600U Processor

ARBOR Technology has expanded its line of modules with the introduction of a 7th generation Intel Core processor platform (formerly codenamed ”Kaby Lake-U”), the EmETXe-i90U0, a Type 6 compact module. The single-chip processors feature a low power consumption of just 15W TDP. Built on Intel’s new 14nm process technology, the 7th generation Intel Core processor is designed to provide excellent graphics and performance.

Arbor_1__EmETXe-i90U0_photo_17071013_436

The new Intel HD Graphics 620 in 7th generation Intel Core processors provide Ultra HD/4K display and additional codec support. Enhanced security and manageability features help to drive down total cost and risk, protecting data and preventing malware threats. The boards allow the connection of up to three independent display interfaces via HDMI 1.4, LVDS and embedded DisplayPort (eDP). When using DisplayPort 1.2, the individual displays can be daisy chained to take advantage of simple wiring. Native USB 3.0 support provides fast data transmission with low power consumption. The two SODIMM sockets can be equipped with up to 32 GB SO-DIMM DDR4 memory.

A total of twelve USB ports are provided, four of them support USB 3.0 SuperSpeed. Eight PCI Express 2.0 lanes, two SATA ports with 6 Gb/s SATA RAID and Gigabit Ethernet support via the Intel i219-LM GbE LAN controller (with AMT 11 support) which enables fast and flexible system extensions, completes the highly flexible design. Extra features included are TPM, up to 32 GB eMMC 5.0, two UART (RX/TX) ports, 8-bit Digital I/O and 5 V – 20 V wide range power input. The EmETXe-i90U0 board can work in temperatures from -40°C to 85°C.
