New state-of-the-art Computer-on-Modules
congatec announces launch of 12 brand new Computer-on-Modules in parallel with today’s Intel IOTG (Internet of Things Group) launch of the 11th Gen Intel Core processors. Based on the new low-power high-density Tiger Lake SoCs the new modules offer significantly greater CPU performance and nearly 3x higher GPU performance along with state-of-the-art PCIe Gen4 and USB4 support. The new congatec COM-HPC and COM Express Computer-on-Modules will accelerate many performance hungry fanless edge applications in harsh industrial and embedded environments. Typical new edge computing tasks include industrial and tactile IoT, machine vision and situational awareness, real-time control and collaborative robotics, as well as real-time edge analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) with inference workloads enabled to run across all four new CPU cores, or on up to 96 graphics execution units of the brand new Intel Iris Xe graphics.
“One of the most impressive features besides state-of-the-art PCIe Gen4 and USB4 support is the massively increased bandwidth of the new Intel Iris Xe graphics. The performance has nearly tripled compared to predecessor modules based on 8th Gen Intel Core processor technology. This opens up a multitude of new opportunities in the graphics intensive medical imaging and immersive digital signage sectors, as well as in the industrial machine vision and AI based public safety sectors where capturing and analyzing several video streams in real-time is critical for object recognition,” says Gerhard Edi, CTO at congatec.
“For demanding IoT applications like collaborative robotics, autonomous vehicles, AI, or contactless retail markets, congatec’s 11th Gen Intel Core processor based modules take advantage of the ‘total compute’ capabilities of the CPU and GPU. In combination with Intel Time Coordinated Computing technologies, extensive virtualization, and in-band error correction, these new platforms help minimize jitter and are ideal to meet the demands of critical real-time computing applications,” underlines Jonathan Luse, Senior Director, Intel’s Industrial Solutions Division.
