Kontron: COM Express module with AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC

Kontron announces in parallel with the launch of the new AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC (system on a chip) that it will be extending its COMe-cVR6 Computer-on-Modules - currently based on the high-performance AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 series - with the next-generation processors in the 12-25-watt performance class. The new low-power COM Express Compact Type 6 modules, which are based on the very successful and highly regarded 'Zen' microarchitecture, will target price-sensitive, compact, and fanless applications that require a new class of performance. Typical markets are industrial real-time controls and industrial edge devices, machine GUIs, panel PCs, and medical systems, along with infotainment, gaming, and digital signage platforms.

Designed for harsh environments, the rugged COM Express Compact modules are convincing in all of these applications thanks to memory down options and their significantly compact form factor. Compared to COM Express Basic, the footprint is reduced by about 22 percent.

The new Kontron dual-core Computer-on-Modules with the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC - which have planned availability of ten years - will feature the same high-performance 'Zen' CPU cores offered by the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors - including up to 24 GB ECC supporting 64-bit DDR4 (optionally soldered) as well as full cache bandwidth with 1 MB of shared L2 cache plus 4 MB of shared L3 cache. The same Unified PI (BIOS) will be utilized as well, with only minimal adjustments to what has been revised within the feature set. To provide more power options, the integrated Radeon Vega 3 GPU offers three computing units, which can support up to three UHD 4K displays @ 60 Hz.

The Kontron COM Express(R) modules based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC will give engineers a very attractive platform that provides a new class of performance for embedded solutions.

The new COMe-cVR6 Computer-on-Modules based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC will provide attractive features such as USB 3.1 Gen 2 as well as high-speed PCIe 3.0 lanes, with the option of using one of these for a PCIe switch that will provide four PCIe 2.0 lanes to the COMe connector. Three independent display ports cover a wide variety of graphics-centric application scenarios due to their high flexibility. In addition to the common interfaces such as SATA, I2C, and SMBus, two serial interfaces, a high-definition audio interface and Gigabit Ethernet round out the feature set.

The new COM Express Compact modules will support the Kontron APPROTECT security solution for integrated software protection. Based on an optionally integrated Wibu-Systems security chip combined with a specifically developed software framework, it provides IP and copy/reverse engineering protection. Kontron APPROTECT licensing also makes it possible to use new business models such as 'pay per use' demo versions for limited time periods, and a certain number of executions.
