The ecosystem for modular edge servers expands with a new board and modules, enhancing performance for computing applications.


Congatec has expanded its ecosystem for modular edge servers with new products, including a server carrier board in µATX form factor and COM-HPC Server-on-Modules based on the latest Intel Xeon D processors (Ice Lake). The new µATX server board for COM-HPC modules was developed for real-time servers in edge applications and critical infrastructures. The board can be scaled with the latest COM-HPC Server modules from Congatec. With the updated modules, equipped with the latest Intel Xeon D-1800 and D-2800 processors, customers receive a µATX platform for applications with high-performance requirements in a space-saving, robust design.

The ecosystem of COM-HPC modules and µATX carrier boards offers OEMs customization options at module, board, and system levels from which developers can choose according to their needs. The ecosystem package is tailored to the requirements of edge computing and offers building blocks for industrial environments. The modular approach shortens the time to market for new designs and makes them future-proof.

The carrier board server offers I/O and expansion options in a compact standard form factor. This makes the board a solution for applications such as consolidating servers for virtual machines (VM) or edge servers for energy microgrids, video processing, facial recognition, security applications, smart city infrastructures, and other applications. 

The latest processors have up to 22 cores with higher clock speeds to support edge applications with more performance per watt for more energy-efficient and, therefore, more reliable designs. Scalable edge performance and the modular approach increase the flexibility and future-proofing of designs, reduce total ownership cost, and shorten market time.

The server modules impress with their firmware-integrated hypervisor, making evaluating consolidating servers with virtual machines particularly easy. They also have full real-time capability, which is provided by TCC, TCN, and optional SyncE support. This is ideal for all networked 5G solutions requiring very low latencies and strict frequency/clock synchronization.
