Kontron introduces COM Express Type 7 module for low-power entry-level server platforms in compact form factor

New Kontron COMe-cDV7 Computer-on-Module powered by Intel Atom® processor C3000 product family CPUs offers scalable compute performance and network capabilities on a small form factor

Augsburg, Germany, – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), extends the family of server-class COM platforms with the COMe-cDV7, which is a smaller version of the COMe-bDV7 (COM Express® basic),  for use in extremely space-constraint and low-power, fanless  applications. 

The COMe-cDV7 module features server-grade CPU performance with up to 16 cores and two SODIMM sockets for up to 2x 32GB DDR4 memory (ECC) offering a well-balanced core count vs memory size implementation. Available interfaces are up to 14x PCI Express® Gen 3.0 lanes, up to 3x USB 3.0, 2x SATA Gen3, 2x UARTs and optionally support of eMMC 5.1. In combination with up to four 10GbE-KR ports, the COMe-cDV7 is ideally suited for network intensive implementations, such as real-time Industry 4.0 edge servers, micro servers, network appliances, robotics or energy. The KR design allows for maximum flexibility by defining the physical interface – KR for backplane connectivity, copper (RJ45) or fibre (SFP+) on the base board. Furthermore the available NC-SI signals allow the connection of a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) on the baseboard for the purpose of enabling out-of-band remote manageability. This enhances reliability and helps reduce the overall operating cost in general.

In addition, the new COMe-cDV7 supports the Kontron APPROTECT security solution based on Wibu-Systems CodeMeter®. Kontron APPROTECT Licensing also enables new business models such as ‘pay-per-use’ and time-based trial versions. 

The module is available immediately including Board Support Packages for Linux and Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016 and also in industrial-grade versions.
