PICMG-organisationen ratificerer COM-HPC FuSa udvidelserne

PICMG-organisationen har nu formelt ratificeret 'COM-HPC 1.15 for Functional Safety (FuSa)', der som navnet indikerer understøtter implementering af funktionel sikkerhed på COM-HPC platformen (in english).

PICMG, a leading consortium for the development of open embedded computing specifications, has announced major extensions to the COM-HPC Computer-on-Module (COM) standard with the ratification of COM-HPC 1.15 for Functional Safety (FuSa). COM HPC 1.15 supports workload consolidated high-performance mixed-criticality for real-time edge servers and clients that must execute not only safety controls but also vision, AI and IIoT gateway logic or even TSN based 5G communication.

COM-HPC 1.15 is a set of safety extensions that expand the FuSa capabilities of 'safety island' blocks on modern chipsets out to the broader system. Available on all COM-HPC form factors – including the upcoming COM-HPC Client Mini – COM-HPC FuSa extensions define a dedicated SPI signal that connects health and status monitoring features of such blocks to a FuSa 'safety controller' located on a COM-HPC carrier board where any findings can be processed for external use.

The COM-HPC 1.15 architecture thus enables the creation of multicore embedded mixed-criticality systems by providing a direct path to redundancy and fail-safe process implementation for developers of robotics and industrial machine controls, train and wayside controls, autonomous vehicles, avionics, and other critical systems.

- With the small size definition of the upcoming Mini specification and the FuSa extensions, COM-HPC covers all use cases I can think of, says Christian Eder, Chairman of the COM-HPC technical committee and Director Product Marketing at congatec.

- COM-HPC is the most complete computer module definition ever. I expect extremely fast growth for scalable and compute-power-hungry embedded applications based on COM-HPC technology.

The COM-HPC 1.15 specification effort is sponsored by ADLINK, congatec, and Kontron.
