congatec: COM Express Type 6 module with AMD Ryzen embedded processors

congatec introduces the conga-TR4 COM Express Type 6 module based on the new AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors. Setting a new benchmark for high-end embedded computer modules, AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors deliver up to 3X more GPU performance than competitive solutions, and up to 2X increase in performance over previous generations. With a TDP that is scalable from 12W to 54W, congatec products based on these new processors can benefit from multiple performance leaps across the TDP range and enormous optimization potential with regards to size, weight, power and costs at high graphics performance.

The new congatec COM Express basic modules are designed for the development of embedded computing systems with impressive graphics performance for applications such as medical imaging; professional broadcasting, infotainment and gambling; digital signage; control rooms and video surveillance; optical quality control; and 3D simulators. Other applications include smart robotics and autonomous vehicles that use deep learning to optimize their situational awareness.

The new conga-TR4 high-performance modules with COM Express Type 6 pinout are based on the latest AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 multi-core processors. These modules offer up to 52 per cent more processor performance, reaching up to 3.75 GHz. Thanks to symmetrical multiprocessing, they also provide particularly high parallel processing performance. They support up to 32GB energy-efficient and fast dual-channel DDR4 memory with up to 3200 MT/s and optional ECC for maximum data security.

The new integrated AMD Radeon Vega graphics with up to 11 compute units marks the cutting edge of embedded graphics. It supports up to four independent displays with up to 4k UHD resolution and 10-bit HDR, as well as DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.4 for 3D graphics. The integrated video engine enables hardware-accelerated streaming of HEVC (H.265) video in both directions. Thanks to HSA and OpenCL 2.0 support, deep learning workloads can be assigned to the GPU. In safety-critical applications, the integrated AMD Secure Processor helps with hardware-accelerated encryption and decryption of RSA, SHA and AES.

The new conga-TR4 is also the first congatec COM Express Type 6 module to allow a complete USB-C implementation on the carrier board including USB 3.1 Gen 2 with 10 Gbit/s, Power Delivery and DisplayPort 1.4, for example to connect external touchscreens with a single cable. Further performance-oriented interfaces offered, includes 1x PEG 3.0 x8, 4x PCIe Gen 3 and 4x PCIe Gen 2, 3x USB 3.1 Gen 2, 1x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 8x USB 2.0, 2x SATA Gen 3, 1x Gbit Ethernet. I/Os for SD, SPI, LPC, I²C as well as 2x legacy UART from the CPU and High Definition Audio round off the range of interfaces.

The supported operating systems include Linux, Yocto 2.0 and Microsoft Windows 10, or optionally Windows 7. congatec provides an extensive range of passive and active cooling solutions for workstation designs up to 54W performance, application-ready carrier boards as well as best practice carrier board layouts and circuit diagrams, e.g. for USB-C implementations, to help simplify the design-in of the modules. To bring new designs to market even faster, congatec also offers the development of custom carrier boards and module variants.
