Avnet Embedded launches powerful module family in the COM Express Compact form factor with 13th Gen Intel Core processor

Stutensee, Germany – February, 2023 – At embedded world 2023 in hall 1, booth 510, Avnet Embedded presents the powerful  MSC C6C-RLP COM Express™ Type 6 module family in the Compact form factor integrating an 13th Gen Intel® Core*processor (formerly codenamed “Raptor Lake”). The scalable MSC C6C-RLP product family offers a wide selection of CPU variants with adaptable computing performance and energy efficiency.  

 The new COM Express Compact MSC C6C-RLP module family with dimensions of 95 x 95mm is ideal for different industrial applications, which require outstanding performance on a small form factor. Typical examples are used in industrial automation systems, transportation solutions, medical equipment, process control systems, and HMI terminals. For industrial applications, module variants with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), Intel Time Coordinated Computing (TCC) support and memory with In-Band Error Correction Code (IBECC) protection are available. The boards are ideal for mission critical tasks supporting extended temperature range from -40 to +85°C, 24/7 continuous operation, and optional conformal coating. Avnet Embedded offers a long-term availability for its MSC C6C-RLP module family of at least ten years to ensure customers’ system investments.

 Tim Jensen, Director of Product Innovation at Avnet Embedded, said: “We continuously expand our COM Express product portfolio at the higher end of the performance range to offer our customers the possibility to embed the best computing capabilities into their innovative products to shorten development time and lower costs. The long-term availability of our modules supports numerous industrial applications in different markets.”

 Avnet Embedded offers an entire ecosystem of suitable starter kits, board support packages and design-in support for its MSC C6C-RLP module family. The boards are developed in its company-owned design centers and manufactured in highly automated production facilities.

 Avnet Embedded brings 13th Gen Intel Core processor technology onto the form factors COM Express Basic (125 x 95mm), COM Express Compact (95 x 95mm) and COM-HPC® to offer customers high flexibility. The COM Express and COM-HPC standards enable performance scaling and migrating to future technology upgrades.

 Technical specifications:

Avnet Embedded’s compact MSC C6C-RLP COM Express™ Type 6 module family is equipped with 13th Gen Intel Core processors. The Intel performance hybrid architecture features Performance-cores and Efficient-cores with the Intel Thread Director providing intelligent workload optimization. The architecture scales up to fourteen cores and twenty threads at 35W thermal design power (TDP). For applications with need for lower power dissipation, selected processor variants can be operated down to 12W TDP. The integrated Intel Iris* Xe Architecture Graphics with up to 96 execution units (EUs) ensures high graphics performance.

The onboard fast LPDDR5-6400 memory technology (memory-down) with up to 32GB main memory and In-Band ECC option ensures high data throughput.

 The MSC C6C-RLP modules can be connected to the COM Express carrier board via up to eight PCIe Gen 3 lanes and up to 16 PCIe Gen 4 lanes. The Ethernet interface provides up to 2.5GbE bandwidth based on the Intel i226 network controller. Additionally, four USB 3.2 Gen 1/2 and eight USB 2.0 ports, and two UARTs are available. The powerful boards can drive up to four independent displays and feature three digital display interfaces (DP 1.4a and HDMI 2.0b), one Embedded DisplayPort, and LVDS. Mass storage devices can be connected via two SATA 6Gb/s channels. Optionally, the computer-on-modules are equipped with up to 1 TB NVMe SSD.
