Avnet Integrated presents the new COM Express™ Type 6 module

Stutensee, Germany – September 23, 2020 – Avnet Integrated presents the high-performance MSC C6C-TLU COM Express™ Type 6 module family based on the 11th Generation Intel Core processors (formerly codenamed “Tiger Lake UP3”) introduced at the same time. Compared to previous models, which integrate a 8th Generation Intel Core processor, the high-end modules feature significant gains in computing and graphics performance. Due to the new processor architecture and advanced 10 nm process technology the modules provide a good balance between performance and power consumption.

The MSC C6C-TLU COM Express™ module family is prepared for use in deterministic Ethernet networks. Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) and Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) are supported to meet stringent timing and low latency requirements under hard real-time conditions.

Thanks to its rugged design, the MSC C6C-TLU COM Express™ module family is ideal for use in harsh industrial conditions or outdoor installations. Avnet Integrated offers the module with industrial ambient temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and full 24/7 capability, based on 11th Gen Intel Core processor variants that are specified for extended operational conditions. The product family is highly resistant to shock and vibration, since, among other things, the memory devices are soldered to the board. Optionally, Avnet Integrated can provide the MSC C6C-TLU modules with conformal coating to reliably protect against environmental stress such as contaminants and moisture.

Combined with SDKs like the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, these features make the MSC C6C-TLU COM Express™ Type 6 module family suitable for high-end applications such as artificial intelligence (AI) and Industrial IoT (IIoT) based systems, high-performance medical devices, professional audio/video equipment, innovative control systems and intelligent camera solutions.

Avnet Integrated assists customers with an entire ecosystem of suitable design tools including starter kit and board support package, as well as comprehensive services such as design-in support and carrier design review. All embedded modules are developed by Avnet Integrated in its own Technology Campuses and manufactured in-house in highly automated production facilities. The new MSC C6C-TLU module family is scheduled for long life availability from product launch.

Technical specifications:

The extremely powerful MSC C6C-TLU COM Express™ Type 6 module family can be equipped with 11th Gen Intel Core processors with two or four cores. The energy-efficient processors feature a thermal design power (TDP) of between 12W and 28W.

To achieve high memory bandwidth, the embedded modules are available with fast LPDDR4X-4266 memory connected via two memory channels. The supported memory capacity can range from 4GB to 32GB. Especially for mission critical applications, an in-band error correcting code (ECC) capability can be optionally utilized for protecting code and data kept in memory.

The MSC C6C-TLU module family can drive up to four independent displays with a maximum of 4k resolution. Three DisplayPort/HDMI interfaces and one LVDS and Embedded DisplayPort interface are available as graphic interfaces.

The selection of fast I/Os includes up to nine PCIe Gen 3 lanes, four USB 3.1 interfaces and one Gb Ethernet port. Mass storage devices can be connected via two SATA 6Gb/s channels.
