Supplier of Computer-on-Modules (COMs) congatec will exhibit its range of embedded edge computing at Embedded World 2021, held digitally from March 1st–5th, 2021.
During the event, the company will highlight the technology that will facilitate digitisation projects in harsh and challenging environments, ranging from high-end edge servers to headless systems for ultra-low-power edge logic. Registration is now open on the event website.
congatec, which is partnered with embedded specialist Recab UK to serve the UK market, will cover the full range of embedded computing technologies for industries such as railway, smart city infrastructures, offshore rigs and electrical distribution networks.
Highlights will include the new SMARC 2.1 COM with i.MX 8M plus processor, the new COM-HPC and COM Express modules with scalable 11th Gen Intel Core processors and platforms with Intel Atom® x6000E series processors.
The SMARC 2.1 COM being showcased at the event consumes only 2-6 watts and is made of four powerful ARM Cortex-A63 processor cores and an additional Neural Processing Unit (NPU) — adding up to 2.3 Tera operations per second (TOPS) of AI computing power. The modules are also optimised for processing and analysing dual-camera Image Signal Processor (ISP) data, enabling AI interfacing and machine learning at the edge.
Another highlight will be the exhibiting of high-end x86 COMs based on the COM-HPC and COM Express standards. The new modules — conga-HPC/cTLU size A module and conga-TC570 COM Express compact module — are available with new, scalable 11th Gen Intel Core processors for extreme temperatures, and are the first to support PCIe x4 to connect peripherals with massive bandwidth.
The new platforms for harsh environments support extreme temperature ranges from -40 to +85 degrees Celsius, feature BGA soldered processors for shock and vibration as well as high EMI resistance. They can optionally be made available with conformal coating to protect the COM against ingress from condensation, salt water and dust.
“There is an increasing demand for reliable operation in the most challenging environments,” said Martin Frederiksen, managing director of Recab UK. “congatec exhibiting at Embedded World 2021 is a great opportunity to showcase the ease of using embedded computer technologies in areas such as piping systems for the oil, gas and freshwater industries, telecommunications networks and distributed surveillance and security systems.”
Embedded World 2021 connects attendees with industry leaders in all areas of embedded technologies, from construction elements, modules and complete systems through to operating systems and software.
