Avnet Integrated offers COM Express modules

MSC C6B-CFLR COM Express Type 6 modules, now available from Avnet Integrated, are positioned at the top end of the performance range.

These modules are based on the 9th generation Intel Core processor, and their launch coincides with Intel’s 9th generation announcement, giving developers early accessibility to design with the latest Intel processor technology.

The MSC C6B-CFLR module family features a scalability options, from two cores with single thread to six cores with twelve threads. For applications requiring maximum utilization of computing power, CPU variants are available with a thermal design power (TDP) of 45W/35W.

The dual-core module, with a TDP of 25W for the CPUs, is suitable for applications that need only moderate cooling, for example low-noise cooling in medical devices. For other applications requiring higher reliability, some modules can be specified with error checking and correction (ECC) options.

The MSC C6B-CFLR modules complement the MSC C6B-CFLH COM Express Type 6 family, which integrates 8th generation Intel Core processors. All of Avnet Integrated’s computer-on-modules’ (COMs) various form factors are developed and manufactured in-house by Avnet.

Typical applications for the MSC C6B-CFLR modules include: machine vision/machine learning solutions, industrial applications, surveillance technology (network video recorder or NVR), medical technology and scientific instruments. These boards will be available for 15 years after product introduction.

The MSC C6B-CFLR COM Express Type 6 module family integrates the 9th generation Intel Core processor technology in a basic form factor of 125 x 95mm. The family includes ten module variations and the flagship integrates the E-2276ME Intel Core with six cores, 2.8/4.5 GHz and 12MB cache.

The integrated Intel UHD Graphics generation 9 controller supports the simultaneous operation of up to three independent 4K displays. The computer-on-modules offer video encoding and decoding functions and support DirectX 11/12, OpenGL 4.3/4.4, OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenCL 2.x.

The graphics interface includes three DisplayPort/HDMI/DVI ports and an embedded DisplayPort/LVDS interface. Additionally, the modules also offer common industrial interfaces, with eight PCI Express x1 lanes, a configurable PEG x16 interface, 4 x SATA, four USB 3.1/2.0 and USB 2.0 ports each.

The embedded modules are equipped with a trusted platform module (TPM) compliant to the requirements of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG). The boards have up to 32GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM memory with ECC optionally.

Avnet Integrated also offers a compatible carrier board and a complete starter kit.
