San Diego, CA. congatec will be highlighting its comprehensive COM-HPC ecosystem in hall 3 booth 241 during embedded world 2023. On display will be the COM-HPC Server-on-Modules and ultra-compact COM-HPC Client-on-Modules that around the size of a credit card. The series can easily migrate to the new PICMG standard devoid of significant modification of the internal system and housing.
San Diego, CA. congatec applauds the approval of the COM Express 3.1 standard and launched 10 compliant Computer-on-Modules powered by 12th Gen Intel Core processors (formerly codenamed Alder Lake). Included in the ratification is a revised 16 Gbps COM Express connector supporting high-speed interfaces like PCIe 4.0 and USB 3.2.
WAKEFIELD, MA. PICMG revealed key extensions to the COM-HPC Computer-on-Module (COM) standard with the authorization of COM-HPC 1.15 for Functional Safety (FuSa). COM-HPC 1.15 is a set of safety protocols that develop the FuSa ability of “safety island” blocks on recent chipsets out to the holistic environment.
WAKEFIELD, MA. PICMG’s new COM Express 3.1 specification has been approved to strengthen PCIe Gen 4 and USB4. Updates include a specified 16Gps connector throughout family Type 6, 7, and 10 pinouts, SATA Gen 3, and a CEI signaling-enabled 10 GbE interface and IPMB management interface for the Type 7 pinout, a component of COM.0 R3.1. Improvement with the specification includes optional USB4 (Type 6), MIPI-CSI connectors (Types 6, 10), SoundWire (Types 6, 10), and SPI interface (Types 6, 10).
PICMG’s ModBlox7 is modular hardware standard designed to help regulate Box PCs. In this Q & A, we’re featuring Chief Product Officer at Ci4Rail, Mathias Beer, to discuss the standard, it’s impact on electronics engineering industry, and the how it provides the flexibility, modularization, and miniaturization needed by the market.
Industrial box PCs are some of the most common electronic systems in the world. In virtually every harsh environment or heavy industry use case that leverages electronics, chances are you’ll find an industrial box PC nearby. And their popularity is growing, as DIN rail mount box IPCs are becoming the solution of choice for companies looking to extend enterprise networks into connected factory and manufacturing environments.
Every industry influenced by technology is now demanding intelligence at the edge, often without understanding its implications. For most organizations, acquiring meaningful edge intelligence means drastically changing their IT and/or operational technology infrastructure to support the deployment, integration, and then management of vastly more electronic systems.
