COM Express compact type 6 module by congatec

conga-TCA4, congatec’s COM Express compact type 6 module, offers In­tel® Atom™ x5-E8000 processors which are particulary cost-efficient and with long availability guaranteed. The 64 bit quad core processor makes it easy to enter the powerful x86 computing space.


The robust low-power COM Express modules only consume around 4 watts while at the same time providing significantly more graphics and well-balanced overall performance with a theoretic peak performance of 358.4 GFLOPS per second. The overall computing performance is scalable from 1GHz dual core to 2 Ghz quad core, which makes the module the ideal partner for a large number of fanless and robust embedded computer designs with compact COM Express footprint. The conga-TCA4 computing models are particularly targeted at graphic-intense low-power applications on the Internet of Things (IoT). The conga-TCA4 modules with COM Express type 6 pin-out are equipped with 14 nm Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® processors (Braswell) with 4 watts SDP (Scenario Design Power) or 6 watts TDP (Thermal Design Power) plus up to 8 GB dual channel DDR3L 1600 RAM.

Thanks to the integrated 8th generation Intel graphics, these applications offer graphics performance twice as high as its predecessors. In addition, they support three independent displays via 2x DP 1.1 or 2x HDMI 1.4b and 1x eDP 1.4 or dual channel LVDS. DirectX11.1 and OpenGL 4.2. enable high-quality imaging with up to 4k resolution (3840 x 2160 @30 Hz) including the very latest features. The integrated video engine decodes H.265/HEVC compressed video, is jitter-free and provides maximum load reduction on CPU. It encodes two 60 Hz 1080p H.264 video streams in real time. Innovative, interactive applications with person recognition and/or gesture control simplify the new modules by providing two optional on-board MIPI camera interfaces so that two CSI2 camera sensors can be connected directly.

The conga-TCA4 computer modules support the COM Express type 6 pin-out with 5x 2nd generation PCI express lanes, 1x gigabit ethernet, 2x SATA 3.0, 4x USB 3.0, 8x USB 2.0, UART plus HD audio. OS support is granted for all common Linux distributions and Microsoft Windows versions - including Microsoft Windows 10.
