congatec COM Express Computer-on-Modules come with brand new Intel processors

congatec has introduced the conga-TS370 COM Express Type 6 Computer-on-Modules in parallel with the launch of the 8th Generation Embedded Intel Xeon and Intel Core processors (Coffee Lake H).

As a result the 35-45 W TDP class of COM Express Type 6 modules are able to offer, for the first time, up to 6 cores, 12 threads along with a ‘turbo boost’ of up to 4.4 GHz and drive up to three independent 4k UHD displays.

According to congatec initial testing indicates that these six-core modules are able to offer between 45 to 50 percent more multi-thread and 15 to 25 percent more single-thread performance, compared to 7th Gen Intel Core processor based variants. At a given TPD, system designs achieve higher bandwidth at overall lower power consumption ultimately leading to higher system efficiency.

Target applications are high performance embedded and mobile systems, industrial and medical workstations, storage servers and cloud workstations, as well as media transcoding and edge computing cores.

Beside performance gains, the new congatec modules comes with extended long-term availability of 10 years plus, high bandwidth I/Os with 4x USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbit/s) and Intel Optane memory support, as well as enhanced security features including Intel Software Guard extensions, Trusted Execution Engine and Intel Platform Trust Technology.
