Avnet Integrated announces modules to coincide with Intel Core launch
Announced to coincide with the announcement of Intel’s ninth generation Intel Core processor technology, Avnet Integrated has revealed that the MSC C6B-CFLR COM Express Type 6 module family is now available from the distributor.
The MSC C6B-CFLR COM Express Type 6 modules are based on the newest Intel Core processor and Avnet Integrated says that it can provide developers early accessibility to design with the latest processor technology.
The MSC C6B-CFLR high-end module family has a range of scalability options, from two cores with single thread to six cores with twelve threads. For applications requiring maximum computing power, extremely powerful CPU variants are available with a thermal design power (TDP) of 45 or 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 powerful MSC C6B-CFLH COM Express Type 6 family, which integrates eighth generation Intel Core processors, also available from Avnet Integrated. All the computer on modules (COMs) form factors are developed and manufactured in-house by Avnet.
Typical applications for the high-performance MSC C6B-CFLR modules include machine vision/machine learning, industrial applications, surveillance technology (network video recorder or NVR), medical technology and scientific instruments. These high-end boards will be available for 15 years after product introduction.
The MSC C6B-CFLR COM Express Type 6 module family integrates the ninth generation Intel Core processor technology in a basic form factor of 125 x 95mm. There are 10 module variations; the flagship integrates the E-2276ME Intel Core with six cores, 2.8/4.5GHz and 12Mbyte cache.
The integrated Intel UHD Graphics generation 9 controller supports the simultaneous operation of up to three independent 4k displays. The COMS offer innovative video encoding and decoding functions and support DirectX 11/12, OpenGL 4.3/4.4, OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenCL 2.x, adds Avnet.
The graphics interface includes three DisplayPort/HDMI/DVI ports and an embedded DisplayPort/LVDS interface. Modules also offer common industrial interfaces, e.g. eight PCI Express x1 lanes, a configurable PEG x16 interface, four SATA, four USB 3.1/2.0 and USB 2.0 ports each.
To protect against unauthorised access, the modules are equipped with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) which complies to the requirements of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG). The boards have up to 32Gbyte DDR4-2666 SDRAM memory with ECC optionally.
Avnet Integrated also offers a compatible carrier board and a complete starter kit.
