Kontron presents COMs, Embedded computers and servers for IoT-, Fog- and Cloud computing

Kontron will present a range of new products at the embedded world 2018 trade fair: a Fog computing starter kit with a TSN networking card for getting started with Time Sensitive Networking (IEEE 802.1) and OPC UA publisher, FusionClient familiy and FlatClient family panel PCs, and a new Embedded Server ZINC "Cube" comprising the latest Intel processors. In addition, Computer-on-Modules, motherboards and single board computers of various price categories and performance classes with the latest Intel, AMD and NXP processors will be presented. Kontron will also unveil the latest Computer-On-Module form factor Q7 in addition to COM Express and SMARC 2.0.

The trade fair presence's highlight is a Time Sensitive Networking starter kit. It enables companies to seamlessly connect the field level, operational technology and information technology. The starter kit consists of a KBox C-102 as the industrial computer for the central control through the integrated TSN networking card and the appropriate software.

Kontron presents a Embedded Cloud live demo based on a TSN system and OPC UA connected to various IoT and TSN devices such as an Embedded server at embedded world. The TSN specification guarantees the timely, high-availability delivery of data packets. In industrial environments, such as machine control applications in production, convergent, Ethernet-based TSN with guaranteed latency and Quality of Service with time synchronization can replace proprietary fieldbus systems and seamlessly communicate through to the IT layer. This makes real IIoT or Industry 4.0 based on Ethernet protocol standards possible.

Tailored for its Embedded Cloud vision and Edge- and Fog computing, Kontron presents its first available Embedded server: the successor of the "Cube" evaluation platform already unveiled with a Single Intel Xeon processor in a compact, cost-optimized design with extended storage functionality.

In manufacturing lines and production plants, the trend is towards touch controlled visual user interfaces to control machines and systems. To withstand the rough conditions in industrial settings, Kontron offers two product families of industrial-suited HMI: FusionClient and FlatClient. Both families are on display at embedded world, equipped with the latest generation of Intel CoreT i7 processors.

The latest KBox A-250 based on a PicoITX-2.5"-SBC comes equipped with the latest Intel Atom processors. Its favorable price makes it especially well-suited for use as an entry IoT gateway and at low interface demand.

At embedded world Kontron will present for the first time ever, Computer-on-modules with a Q7 form factor, which will be offered alongside the COM Express and SMARC 2.0T form factors going forward. These modules are already available with NXP i.MX and Intel Atom processors for SMARC. With its new Q7 form factor products, Kontron addresses customers using products of this format already, opening a migration path to the SMARC 2.0 standard.
