Applications such as artificial intelligence and the upcoming 5G wireless standard come with enormous data hunger and require more computing power. This also requires new concepts for embedded computers: existing standards will no longer be sufficient to cope with the growing embedded market demands.

Computer-On-Modules High Performance Computing – COM HPC – will be complementary to the existing COM Express® standard.
