Benefits of computer-on-modules with Intel Atom® x6000E processor
The congatec boards and modules with the new Intel Atom x6000E Series processors (Intel Elkhart Lake) 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.
The combination of rugged real-time operation, real-time connectivity and real-time hypervisor technologies is what IoT-connected industrial applications need. The boards and modules impress with doubled graphics performance for up to three simultaneous displays running at 4kp60 and a whopping 50% more 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. These processors will be available on SMARC, Qseven, COM Express Compact and Mini Computer-on-Modules as well as Pico-ITX Single Board Computers (SBCs).
