Kontron COMe-cAL6 - COM Express Compact Extended Temp Atom E3900 Board

Speeds to 2.0GHz (Dual Core), up to 8GB DDR3L, up to -40 to +85°C Operating

Introduction

The COMe-cAL6 COM Express compact Type 6 module is highly scalable and covers the entire range of Intel's latest IoT-ready embedded processors.

The COMe-cAL6 series comprises modules with cost-efficient dual-core configurations for indoor digital signage applications as well as top performance quad-core modules for deployment in harsh outdoor environments at temperature levels from -40 °C to +85 °C. Due to this high level of scalability, customers are able to choose from a wide range of modules that precisely fit their individual needs. This helps to reduce costs to a minimum.

The COMe-cAL6 module extends the existing Intel® SoC-based COM Express® portfolio to embrace especially powerful compact variants with full COM Express Type 6 I/O support including PCI Express, LAN, USB and Digital Display interfaces. The new COMe module combines state-of-the-art image processing and graphics capabilities with extensive real-time computing. Users benefit from a significantly improved computing performance, an impressive performance-per-watt ratio and the long-term availability inherent in all Kontron embedded solutions. 

Target industries include POS/POI and kiosk systems, digital signage solutions, gaming and medical PCs as well as HMIs and controllers in industrial machinery and equipment. With the implementation of the new COMe-cAL6 series customers also benefit from Kontron’s extensive software and customization services, which put them in a position to realise their new SFF designs faster and more efficiently. An added advantage for developers is the integration of 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.

Module In Detail

A broad range of module variants, based on five different processor types, make up the COMe-cAL6 portfolio. Versions range from a cost optimised dual-core Intel Celeron (2x 1.1/2.4 GHz with 6W TDP) iteration optimised for energy-sensitive applications to genuine quad-core Intel Atom (4x 1.6/2.0 GHz with 12W TDP) and Intel Pentium (4x 1.1/2.5 GHz with 6W TDP) versions for high-end applications.

Users benefit from a significantly improved computing performance, an impressive performance-per-watt ratio and the long-term availability inherent in all Kontron embedded solutions.
