Kontron COMe-cWL6 (E2S) COM Express Compact 8th Gen

Speeds to 2.2GHz (Dual-Core), up to 8GB DDR4 soldered + up to additional 16GB DDR4 via SODIMM


The new Kontron COMe-cWL6 (E2S) modules allow up to 24 GB of DDR4 memory; optionally they are available in Compact format with fast NVMe SSD for the first time. The new COMe is also ideally suited for harsh operating conditions in industrial environments. For example, rugged modules are available that can be used within a temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. The option with a soldered main memory (memory down) of up to 8 GB DDR4 ensures even more robustness. Kontron will also offer a screened E2 variant.

The COMe-cWL6 is ideally suited as a powerful successor for existing solutions, as it takes over their pin assignment and feature implementation. Typical applications include communication, digital signage, professional gaming and entertainment, medical imaging, surveillance and security, industrial edge computing as well as industrial plant-, machine- and robot-control at the shop floor level and/or from the control room. 

The new COM Express® Compact modules support the Kontron APPROTECT security solution based on Wibu-Systems CodeMeter®. Kontron APPROTECT Licensing also enables new business models such as 'pay-per-use' and time-based trial versions.
