Kontron COMe-bBD7 - COM Express® basic Type 7 with Xeon® processor D-1500 and dual 10GbE Ethernet

Speeds to 2.20GHz, Up To 8 Cores, Up To 32GB DDR4 Memory, dual 10GbE, x24 PCIe 3.0 + x8 PCIe 2.0


The new COMe-bBD7 module from Kontron is a Xeon® processor D-1500 based COMe that delivers powerful server-class performance in the COM Express® basic standard form factor (125 x 95mm) and is designed according to the new Type 7 standard. The COMe-bBD7 module is equipped with Kontron’s standard hardware-based embedded Security Solution Approtect. Kontron is the first embedded computing supplier to offer full security protection embedded in its COM and motherboard offerings. 

The new Type 7 is a complementary specification to the existing Type 6 pin-out. While the focus of Type 6 is on graphics-oriented applications supporting audio and video interfaces, the Type 7 pin out definition is for headless platforms w/o graphics support. Additionally, by introducing four 10G Ethernet ports, an NC-SI interface and a maximum of 32 PCI Express lanes, the Type 7 is an ideal definition to design server-grade platforms for applications requesting high data and network throughput.

This latest COMe introduction extends Kontron’s product family of server-class COM platforms after the successful launch of its COMe-bBD6 Type 6 module last year. The new application-ready COMe-bBD7 module features data center-grade CPU performance with up to 16 cores. This robust performance is combined with support for 2x 10 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports making it ideal for network performance-hungry implementations. In addition, the COMe-bBD7 offers high-speed connectivity from configurable PCI Express® (PCIe) lanes with an up to PCIe x24 implementation for high I/O performance demands such as those required in medical applications. Offering a well-balanced multi-core CPU versus memory-size approach, it supports up to 32 gigabytes (GB) of ECC/non-ECC DDR4 memory. 

The Kontron COMe-bBD7 is also available in industrial-grade versions making it an excellent solution for applications that operate in harsh environments. The module provides broad operating system support including Linux, Windows® Server 2008 R2 SP1 / 2012, /2012 R2 Windows® 7 and 8.1 and VxWorks.
