Kontron is extending the usage model of the 5th generation Intel® Core® processor technology to compact and rugged fanless options with the launch of the Kontron COMe-cBL6 COM Express® compact Computer-on-Modules. The new modules in the compact form factor (95 x 95 mm) are equipped with the ULT versions of the 5th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 & Celeron® processor, formerly codenamed ‘Broadwell-U’. ULT stands for ultra-low TDP which limits the power consumption of these new Computer-on-Modules down to options that are tailored for fanless and fully enclosed system designs. The modules also cater for the most robust and maintenance-free system designs in the high-performance class of embedded systems and consequently help engineers to reduce the systems’ bill of materials as well as the customers’ total cost of ownership.
Application areas can be found in all the performance-hungry but power-restricted, multi-touch multi-display systems such as HMIs in automation, medical imaging, digital signage and point of sale as well as surveillance and security. The modules also address the fast-growing, industrial-grade tablet PC market for various industries including logistics, retail and manufacturing.
The Kontron COMe-cBL6 COM Express® compact Computer-on-Modules with pin-out type 6 are highly scalable to cover a broad application range from high-end 2.2GHz dual-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor performance to cost-optimized Intel® Celeron® designs. With Intel® AVX2 and OpenCL 2.0, they boost floating point performance as well as parallel processing density. Up to 16 GB of energy-efficient DDR3L RAM (8GB memory down + 8GB SODIMM) satisfy even highest memory demands. State-of-the-art multi-display designs are enabled by three independent display outputs, executed via 2x DP++ (DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI) and 1x Dual Channel LVDS. Standard interfaces include up to 4x SATA 6Gbit/s ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 2x USB 3.0/2.0 ports and 6x USB 2.0. Application-specific extensions on the carrier board are connected via 4x PCIe x1 or 1x PCI x4. An additional PCIe x4 interface is possible with disabled GbE functionality. The wide-range (8.5 - 20V) power supply and MARS smart battery support simplify mobile and battery-powered designs.
