Kontron’s COMe-bTL6 (E2) Computer-on-Module offers up to 8 cores and supports four independent 4K displays or one 8K HDR display
Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), is expanding its extensive portfolio with the COM Express® Basic Type 6 module COMe-bTL6 (E2) with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro®, Intel® Xeon® W-11000E and Intel® Celeron® processors (former codename Tiger Lake H). The CPUs are featuring up to 8 cores and are specifically suited for demanding Edge workloads and high-end, high-bandwidth applications. Intel® Iris® XeGraphics supports up to four independent 4K displays or one 8K HDR display. AI-workloads in machine vision or medical applications reach new levels of performance with the GPU and Intel® Deep Learning Boost. Integrated TSN- and Intel® TCC-functionality enable deterministic networks in Industry 4.0 as well as various real-time applications.
The TDP of the processor chips ranges from 25 to 45 watts, with eight processing cores enabling clock frequencies of up to 5.0 GHz. A maximum of three DDR4 SO-DIMM sockets allow a memory expansion of up to 96 GBytes (non-ECC/ECC). With integrated Intel® UHD graphics supporting up to four independent 4K displays, up to 40 HD video streams can be processed and analyzed in parallel at 1080p/30fps resolution. In addition, fast 2.5 GBit Ethernet with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and Intel® Time Coordinated Computing (Intel® TCC) predestines the module for demanding real-time applications.
As storage medium, a soldered NVMe SSD onboard with up to 1 TByte storage capacity is optionally used, which enables highly effective data processing even under harsh conditions. The COMe-bTL6 (E2) module guarantees full computing power even in extreme industrial environments with temperatures ranging from -40 °C to +85 °C and offers a higher number of application-ready integrated features and more powerful cooling compared to alternative smaller form factor designs.
“The new COM Express® Basic modules with 11th generation Intel® Core™ processors continue to drive the growth of high-end IoT, Intelligent Edge and AI-applications,” says Peter Mueller, VP Product Center Modules at Kontron. “Even demanding and highly complex workloads are handled reliably and in the shortest possible time by these modules.”
