Germany : New COM Express® compact Computer-on-Module marks the energy efficient entry-level into multicore technology [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Kontron today announced the launch of its new COM Express compact Computer-on-Module COMe-cCT6. It is the company s energy efficient entry-level multicore module based on next-generation Intel Atom processors with 32 nm technology. The module is available in three multicore performance levels up to 2x 1.86 GHz and offers an increased performance per watt ratio: Compared to platforms based on the second generation of Intel Atom processors it offers twice the graphics capability, up to 28% higher processor performance and half of the processor thermal design power (TDP). The COM Express pin-out type 6 definition enables the module to provide these increased capabilities via a scalable interface range that offers suitable options for both cost and power sensitive applications alike.
The module s space-saving COM Express compact form factor (95 mm x 95 mm) is ideal for designs requiring the full range of interfaces provided by the COM Express pin-out type 6 in a small solution. Developers of intelligent systems who need an array display support stand to benefit module s ready-to-use interfaces that include three Digital Display Interfaces such as 2x DisplayPort, HDMI/DVI and 24 bit LVDS. Integrated decoding hardware within the module keeps processor load to a minimum when decoding 1080p videos which means that OEMs can even use it for entry-level digital signage. This is also supported by the module s wide range power supply (4.75 to 20 VDC), that is recommended by the Open Pluggable Specification for digital signage applications. Another plus is the platform s enhanced power management features including Intel Deeper Sleep and Intel Rapid Start Technology all of which further helps to reduce power consumption and enable fast resume from standby mode for intermittent usage models like those found in modern KIOSK systems. In combination with the Intel Smart Connect Technology, the new Kontron COMe-cCT6 also enables connected usage scenarios where an instant Internet connection is available as soon as the application is (re)activated and also allows for constant updates even while in standby. Therefore, the Kontron COMe-cCT6 is also an ideal building block for connected devices that are becoming more and more prevalent.
Feature set in brief The new Kontron COMe-cCT6 Computer-on-Modules are equipped with 2x 1.6 GHz or 2x 1.86 GHz Intel Atom processors (N2600, N2800 and D2550), the Intel NM10 Express chipset, and up to 4 GB of fast on-board DDR3 800/1600 system memory. The integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600/3650 enables 1080p playback of MPEG4 Part 2, VC-1, WMV9 and H.264 videos with minimum processor load. Furthermore, the new module provides HDCP support via HDMI 1.3a and DisplayPort 1.1, enabling BluRay playback.
