February 11, 2016 - Congatec adds Intel Atom x5-E8000 processor to conga-QA4 Qseven, conga-MA4 COM Express Mini and conga-TCA4 COM Express Compact modules.

Thanks to its integrated quadcore SoC, with a processor TDP of 5 watts and a SDP of just 4 watts, the congatec boards and modules with Intel Atom x5-E8000 processor deliver high multi-thread performance for applications in the lower performance segment. This plays an important role, for example, in IoT applications, which have to execute an array of additional tasks alongside their actual application such as de- and encrypting, virus protection and network traffic.

The 1.04 GHz Intel Atom x5-E8000 processor features up to 8 gigabytes of DDR3L RAM with 1600 MT/s. The integrated Intel HD Graphics Gen 8 supports DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL 1.2 for up to three independent displays via DisplayPort or HDMI with up to 4k resolutions (3.840 x 2.160 pixel) as well as LVDS or eDP. Thanks to hardware acceleration even 4k video playback in real time presents no problem.

For application and data storage 2x SATA 3.0 are available. For application-specific I/Os they offer PCI Express 2.0, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 as well as SDIO plus Gbit Ethernet. Audio signals can be transmitted via Intel HD Audio, plus, two inexpensive MIPI HD cameras (on Qseven) can be connected.

congatec offers Board Support Packages (BSPs) for Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 7, Windows embedded 8 and 7 as well as for all popular Linux distributions. The package is completed with congatec’s customary extensive documentation, industry-compliant driver implementation and personal integration support, which speeds up the development of individual designs and heightens efficiency. Embedded Design & Manufacturing (EDM) services are optionally available.
