High scalability of the Kontron COM Express® Computer-on-Modules portfolio offers the right module for any application



Eching/Nuremberg, February 25, 2014 – Today at the Embedded World, Kontron presented two new COM Express® compact Computer-on-Module families with Intel® Atom™ E3800 series processors and Intel® Celeron® N2900 / J1900 series processors. The new modules extend the existing Intel® SoC-based COM Express® portfolio to embrace especially powerful compact variants with full type 6 I/O support including PCI Express, LAN, USB and Digital Display interfaces. In total, Kontron now offers 16 different configuration options in this COM Express® Computer-on-Module performance class. These range from particularly cost-efficient single-core modules for indoor digital signage applications right up to top performance quad-core modules for deployment in harsh outdoor environments and at temperatures of -40 °C to +85 °C. Due to this high level of scalability, customers will always find a Kontron module with the right feature set that perfectly fits their application, which in turn reduces costs to a minimum.

Regardless of which modules are selected by the customer, all the modules profit from excellent Gen7 Intel® HD graphics for two independent monitors and the high processor performance offered by the new Intel® Atom™ and Intel® Celeron® SoC processors which all boast low power consumption of 5 to 10 watts. Target industries include POS/POI and kiosk systems, digital signage players, gaming and medical PCs as well as HMIs and controllers in industrial machinery and equipment. Thanks to the COM Express® standard, developers in all these markets have access to by far the world’s leading and most extensive eco-system for x86 Computer-on-Modules and a seamless scalability from ultra-low-power SFF modules to high-end computing cores. Customers also benefit from Kontron’s extensive software and customization services, which put them in a position to realize their new SFF designs faster and more efficiently. 

The Kontron COMe-cBT6
The standard design of the COM Express® compact modules – Kontron COMe-cBT6 – supports the entire portfolio of the Intel® Atom™ E3800 processors (COMe-cBTi6) and Intel® Celeron® processors N2900 and J1900 (COMe-cBTc6), whereby the E3800 variants are designed for the extended temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C. The memory of up to 2x 4 GB has been laid out as dual-channel DDR3L SODIMM. With eMMC Flash, SD card slot and 2x SATA, ample storage options for OS and application code are available. Substantial USB support is also offered with 1x USB 3.0 and up to 8x USB 2.0. More interface details and further information on availability can be viewed at the Kontron COMe-cBT6 product website.

The Kontron COMe-cBTi6R
The Kontron COMe-cBTi6R comes with an especially robust design and is tailored to suit shock- and vibration-proof mobile and stationary applications as well as the extended temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C. It is exclusively equipped with Intel® Atom™ E3800 family processors and soldered RAM. According to the different requirements of real-time controllers or memory-hungry HMIs either up to 4GB DDR3L with ECC or up to 8GB DDR3L without ECC is available. The support of Rapid Shutdown offers an extremely fast shutdown of a computer system to minimize the risk of system or data tampering in mission critical applications. Software and application data can be stored on the eMMC Flash and via 2 SATA interfaces. Any peripherals can be connected via 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB OTG, 8x USB 2.0 or 4x PCIe x1. Further interface details and more information on availability can be found at the Kontron COMe-cBTi6R product website.
