congatec launches the conga-B7AC, a new Intel Atom C3000 processor based COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Module that raises the bar for embedded edge computing through 10 GbE bandwidth support. With a power consumption starting at only 11 Watt, the new low-power multicore Server-on-Modules with up to 16 cores offer up to 4x 10 GbE real-time capable network performance.
The feature set is designed for modular industrial micro servers as well as rugged telecom and network equipment and is deployable even in the extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. The conga‑B7AC is based on the new PICMG COM Express 3.0 specification and, as a commercially off-the-shelf available, standardized building block, perfectly suited for efficient custom designs of very small sized, solely passively cooled embedded edge devices.
The new COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Modules from congatec are application ready for redundancy, real-time communication and virtualization technologies to maximize uptime and resilience, minimize latency and to get the most out of each processing core. Their cloud API for distributed embedded edge servers further provides all the capabilities that data center managers need to remotely monitor system health, power consumption and environmental conditions. With the support of up to 20 PCI Express (PCIe) lanes, the new Intel Atom C3000 processor based COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Modules also offer minimum latency for storage devices as well as very fast access lanes to all the various sensor networks, field busses and industrial Ethernets.
congatec offers comprehensive board support packages for all current 64 bit Microsoft Windows variants as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server. An extensive range of accessories, such as cooling solutions and the new COM Express Type 7 carrier board for evaluation, simplifies the design-in even further.
