p>conga-TC170, congatec’s COM Express compact type 6 module, is equipped with 6th generation Intel Core i5 processors of the ULV-SoC edition (Skylake). These modules provide configurable TDP of 7.5 to 15 watts so that applications can be adapted to any system’s energy concept.
Besides the new micro architecture, voltage supply has been optimised to enhance energy efficiency and to allow for extensive use of the turbo boost.
Another highlight is the fact that it supports fast dual channel memory of up to 32 GB in the DDR4 version, which offers significantly more bandwidth and is much more energy-efficient than the former DDR3 implementation. 9th generation Intel graphics, available on the new micro architecture, offers supply for up to three independently operated 60 Hz 4k displays via DisplayPort 1.2. Additionally, it supports HDMI version 2.0 and DirectX version 12 for even faster 3D graphics based on Windows 10. Supporting not only decoding but also hardware encoding of HEVC, VP8, VP9 and VDENC, the module allows for energy-efficient streaming of HD videos in both directions. Further improvements have been added, e.g. the number of USB 3.0 interfaces (4x), 3rd generation SATA (3x), 3rd generation PCIe (6x) as well as AMT (version 11.0).
The conga-TC170 computer modules support COM Express™ type 6 pin-out with PEG, gigabit ethernet, 8x USB 2.0, LPC as well as I²C and UART. Thanks to optimized MIPI camera interfaces, CSI2 camera sensors can be connected directly. OS support is granted for all common Linux distributions and Microsoft Windows versions - including Microsoft Windows 10. Comprehensive equipment to facilitate Design-In, such as cooling solutions, carrier boards and starter kits as well as SMART battery management modules completes this offer.
