TQ Systems Introduces TQMxE40M: COM Express Mini Module with New Intel Atom "Elkhart Lake" Processors

TQ Systems has introduced the TQMxE40M, a new generation of its COM Express Mini Modules.

Per the company, compared to the previous modules, the new TQMxE40M modules offer up to 70% improved computing performance and a doubling of graphics performance. The maximum memory capacity has been extended to up to 16 GByte LPDDR4 main memory for computationally intensive applications. Also supported in this generation are an internal and external display with up to 4K resolution at 60 Hz. Two fast USB3 ports with transfer rates of 10 GBit/s each facilitate data exchange between neighboring computers.

Time Coordinated Computing (TCC) provides hardware features that minimize the latency of data packets from one IP block to another. Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is an extension of the data link layer of the Ethernet stack. TSN performs three main functions: synchronizing all clocks in the network, scheduling the most important traffic, and "shaping" the rest of the traffic to achieve desired traffic patterns.
