Kontron: IoT-ready COM Express family in a highly robust package

Kontron has introduced a new series of compact Computer-on-Modules based on the latest generation Intel Atom, Pentium and Celeron processors. The new COMe-cAL6 COM Express compact Type 6 module is highly scalable and covers the entire range of Intel's latest IoT-ready embedded processors.

The COMe-cAL6 series comprises modules with cost-efficient dual-core configurations for indoor digital signage applications as well as top performance quad-core modules for deployment in harsh outdoor environments at temperature levels from -40 to +85 °C. Due to this high level of scalability, customers are able to choose from a wide range of modules that precisely fit their individual needs.

A broad range of module variants, based on five different processor types, make up the COMe-cAL6 portfolio. Versions range from a cost optimized dual-core Intel Celeron (2x 1.1/2.4 GHz with 6W TDP) iteration optimized for energy-sensitive applications to genuine quad-core Intel Atom (4x 1.6/2.0 GHz with 12W TDP) and Intel Pentium (4x 1.1/2.5 GHz with 6W TDP) versions for high-end applications.

The new Intel Gen 9 HD low-power graphics integrated on the SoC with up to 18 Execution Units provides 4K encode/decode algorithms supporting HEVC, H.264 and VP8/VP9. The COMe-cAL6 supports three independent displays - 2x DP++ (DP/HDMI/DVI) 4096x2160@60Hz , 1x Single Channel LVDS with eDPtoLVDS (eDP on request) 3840x2160@30Hz. The memory is laid out as dual-channel DDR3L SODIMMs.The module comes with two SATA II 300 Mbps interfaces and optionally eMMC memory up to 128 GB. In addition two serial ports, substantial USB support with four USB 3.0 interfaces, up to eight USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, as well as up to five PCI-Express Gen2 lanes for customer specific expansions are supported. The COMe-cAL6 comes with support for Windows 10, Windows 10 IoT, Linux and VxWorks 7.0.
