Kontron's Power Architecture® Computer-on-Module are especially suited for low-power, deeply embedded telecommunication and number crunching systems which need especially high single threaded performance-per-watt of the Power Architecture®. As a ready-to-install COTS component, the Kontron Power Architecture® COM family combines with its long-term availability of more than 10 years, fanless operation and support for the extended temperature range up to -40 to +70 °C the comfort and the design safety of a standard board solution with the flexibility of a full custom design.
The Kontron Power Architecture® COM form factor is mechanically compatible with the COM Express® basic and compact form factor, the cooling concept and the power supply as well. The pin-out relates to the COM Express® pin-out type 6 as far as possible. But the main differences are the flexible SerDes lanes offered by the QorIQ™series and the grafic support. The SerDes lanes can be pre-configured on customer request from Kontron and make the module best suitable to the customer requirements.
