On-module calculators for embedded computing in autonomous vehicles, robotics, introduced by Congatec
SAN DIEGO- Congatec Inc. in San Diego is showcasing 10 COM-HPC and COM Express computers on modules with Intel Core mobile and desktop processors, formerly named Alder Lake, for next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) and edge applications.
Modules are available in COM-HPC A and C sizes as well as COM Express Type 6 form factors. Modules offer up to 14 cores and 20 threads on BGA and 16 cores and 24 threads on desktop mounted variants on LGA.
Applications include autonomous vehicles, machine vision, real-time collaborative robotics, mobile machinery, video security and gateways, smart factories, process automation, and autonomous logistics vehicles.

Optimized for high embedded client performance, LGA processor-based module graphics deliver up to 94% faster performance and its image classification inference performance nearly triples with up to 181% faster throughput raised.
Embedded computing modules provide bandwidth to connect discrete graphics processing units (GPUs) for maximum graphics and general-purpose GPU-based artificial intelligence (AI).
Compared to BGA versions, these devices benefit from double the lane speed because they are equipped with PCI Express 5.0 interface technology in addition to PCI Express 4.0 out of the processor.

Additionally, desktop chipsets provide up to eight times more PCI Express 3.0 lanes for additional connectivity and mobile BGA variants also provide up to 16 PCI Express 4.0 lanes off the processor and up to eight PCI Express 3.0 lanes out of the chipset.
COM-HPC Client and COM Express Type 6 modules offer dedicated AI engines supporting Windows ML, Intel distribution of OpenVINO toolkit, Chrome Cross ML, support for Real- Time Systems and operating system support for Real-Time Linux and Wind River VxWorks.
