COM Express Type 7 modul til kompakte serverplatforme
Kontron introducerer COM Express Type 7 modul til brug i kompakte low-power entry-level serverplatforme (in english).
Kontron extends the family of server-class COM platforms with the COMe-cDV7, which is a smaller version of the COMe-bDV7 (COM ExpressR basic), for use in extremely space-constraint and low-power, fanless applications.
The COMe-cDV7 module features server-grade CPU performance with up to 16 cores and two SODIMM sockets for up to 2x 32GB DDR4 memory (ECC) offering a well-balanced core count vs memory size implementation. Available interfaces are up to 14x PCI ExpressR Gen 3.0 lanes, up to 3x USB 3.0, 2x SATA Gen3, 2x UARTs and optionally support of eMMC 5.1. In combination with up to four 10GbE-KR ports, the COMe-cDV7 is ideally suited for network intensive implementations, such as real-time Industry 4.0 edge servers, micro servers, network appliances, robotics or energy.
The KR design allows for maximum flexibility by defining the physical interface - KR for backplane connectivity, copper (RJ45) or fibre (SFP+) on the base board. Furthermore the available NC-SI signals allow the connection of a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) on the baseboard for the purpose of enabling out-of-band remote manageability. This enhances reliability and helps reduce the overall operating cost in general.
In addition, the new COMe-cDV7 supports the Kontron APPROTECT security solution based on Wibu-Systems CodeMeterR. Kontron APPROTECT Licensing also enables new business models such as 'pay-per-use' and time-based trial versions.
The module is available immediately including Board Support Packages for Linux and Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016 and also in industrial-grade versions.
