congatec introduces conga-TS175 Computer-on-Module

January 4, 2017 - congatec – a technology company for embedded computer modules, single board computers and embedded design and manufacturing services – extends its COM Express Basic portfolio with the conga-TS175 Computer-on-Module. Equipped with the  dual chip versions of the Intel Xeon and Gen 7 Intel Core processors, it is designed to set a benchmark for module-based embedded computers and modular industrial workstations that need to process massive workloads.

Application areas for these COM Express Type 6 Server-on-Modules can be found everywhere where data intensive streams need to be processed and displayed in real time. Target markets include big data processing embedded clouds, edge and fog servers, medical imaging systems, video surveillance and vision-based quality control, simulation equipment, host systems for virtualized control technology, vision systems in industrial control rooms and other plant-wide supervision systems or high-end professional gaming and digital signage.

Compared to their predecessors, the modules host increased CPU frequencies and performance, dynamic HDR graphics thanks to 10-bit video codecs, and support 3D XPoint-based Intel Optane memory.

The conga-TS175 COM Express Basic module is available with two quadcore Intel Xeon processors with hyper threading as well as 5 different Intel Core i7, i5 and i3 processors within a 45 to 25 W TDP envelope. Bandwidth intensive applications will benefit from up to 32 gigabytes of fast dual channel 2400 DDR4 memory – including ECC support option. In regards to visual experience, they feature the new Intel HD630 graphics supporting up to three independent displays with up to 4k @ 60 Hz via DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 – both with HDCP 2.2, and eDP 1.4 support. Additionally, the modules also offer dual channel LVDS and VGA for legacy displays. Thanks to hardware-accelerated 10-bit encoding/decoding and high dynamic range of HEVC and VP9, HD streams are becoming more vivid and lifelike in both directions.

The modules offer all the common I/O interfaces of the Type 6 pinout. System extensions including Intel Optane memory can be connected via PCI Express Gen 3.0 Lanes. 4x SATA 6G ports with RAID0/1 support are available for conventional storage media. Further I/O interfaces include 1x Gigabit Ethernet with Intel AMT support, 4x USB 3.0, 8x USB 2.0, HDA, 4x GPIOs, LPC, SPI, I2C Bus, and 2x UART. The modules support the 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows 10 and Windows 10 IoT as well as all common Linux operating systems. Individual integration support, an extensive range of accessories as well as optional Embedded Design & Manufacturing Services for individual carrierboard and system designs complete the package.
