In this video, Henk van Bremer, Director of Boards and Modules at ADLINK, focuses on the server module, which solves many of the issues associated with bringing server level computing to the edge, especially the power that’s needed to drive some of the latest microprocessors.

COM-HPC Academy: Introduction to COM-HPC Server

In this video, Burrell Best, Industry Standards Manager at Samtec, explains the technical considerations and architectural decisions that helped define the COM-HPC electromechanical interface. He details key power management and signal integrity considerations that influenced pinout, pin counts, next-gen connector design and channel topologies.

COM-HPC Academy: Delivering Bleeding Edge Power and Performance

In this video, Jens Hagemeyer and Martin Kaiser from Bielefeld University explain how the COM-HPC platform management portion of the standard was developed and the thinking that went into it. The second portion of the video discusses COM-HPC for non-x86 architectures including ARM, RISC-V, GPUs, and FPGAs.

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. Leading manufacturers in the industry, such as Kontron, have set up a new working group in the PICMG standardization committee to make the COM standard fit for the future. Computer-On-Modules High Performance Computing – COM HPC – will be complementary to the existing COM Express® standard.
