The product family targets OEMs and developers seeking implementation of embedded and edge computing technology, offering pre-configured hypervisors, operating systems, and IIoT software setups.


Congatec has introduced a product family, aReady.COM, as part of its aReady strategy, aimed at simplifying embedded and edge computing technology implementation. The product offers pre-configured embedded building blocks, such as Computer-on-Modules (COM) and cloud solutions, to streamline integration for OEMs and developers in the embedded and edge computing industry.

The product family targets OEMs and developers seeking simplified implementation of embedded and edge computing technology. These customers benefit from pre-configured application-ready hypervisors, operating systems, and IIoT software setups, allowing them to focus more on application development and accelerate their time-to-market.

These pre-configured aReady.COMs come with application-ready hypervisors, operating systems, and IIoT software setups that customers can customize. This simplifies the integration of various IIoT functionalities and underlying layers in embedded and edge computing systems, enabling developers to boot the customized COMs and install their applications.

The initial product features the ctrlX OS from Bosch Rexroth, with more products planned under the aReady strategy in the future.

It provides customers with computer-on-modules in a fully validated package, ready for applications, including virtualization, operating systems, and software layers. This allows OEMs to easily integrate their applications and accelerate their time-to-market by focusing solely on application development.

Regarding hardware, COM offers a hypervisor integrated into the firmware and integrated memory for installing operating systems and IIoT applications according to individual requirements. For instance, using the Linux-based ctrlX OS from Bosch Rexroth enables access to the ctrlX OS World and app portfolio of the ctrlX Store for PLC applications, motion control, communication, and engineering tools, including a range of IoT and cloud apps such as firewalls and VPN clients.

“Our aReady.COM strategy is Congatec’s innovative approach to simplifying the implementation and use of modern basic technologies over the entire life cycle of customer applications. This will raise “application-readiness” as a mark of quality to a whole new level. Moreover, it is not just limited to COMs but even covers everything from COM to cloud,” explains Tim Henrichs, Vice President Marketing & Business Development at congatec.
