More computing power at the edge

28 September 2020

congatec’s latest SMARC 2.1 module impresses with doubled graphics performance for up to three simultaneous displays running at 4kp60 and significant increase in multi-thread computing power compared to their predecessors on up to 4 cores. Further benefits especially welcomed in real-time industrial markets are Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) and Real Time Systems (RTS) hypervisor support as well as BIOS configurable ECC and extended temperature options from -40° C to +85° C.

The combination of rugged real-time operation, real-time connectivity and real-time hypervisor technologies is needed for IoT-connected industrial applications. conga-SA7 with the new Intel Atom, Celeron and Pentium processors deliver massive improvements in this respect for the automation and control markets, ranging from distributed process controls in smart energy grids to smart robotics, or PLCs and CNCs for discrete manufacturing. Further real-time applications can be found in test and measurement as well as in transportation such as train and wayside systems or connected autonomous vehicles. Mission critical applications will also benefit from more cost-efficient ECC implementations as In-band Error Correction Code allows the use of more affordable conventional memory instead of dedicated ECC RAM.
