The COM Express Basic type 6 conga-TFS module is available in three versions of the AMD embedded R-series: from dual core AMD R-272F to quad core AMD R-464L. It provides a very compact two-chip solution with support for up to 16 GB dual channel 1600 MHz DDR3 memory.
The integrated graphics core supports DirectX® 11 and OpenGL 4.2 for instant 2D and 3D imaging. A 3rd generation hardware universal video decoder allows for seamless processing of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4 part 2 and MPEG2 video streams. Graphic interfaces offered include VGA and 18/24 Bit single/dual channel LVDS; other features include three DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 1.4 plus two single-link DVI for immediate control of three independent displays.
Software developers benefit from APU programmability based on proven standards such as Direct Compute (Microsoft) and OpenCL™. Due to the portability of Open CL, expensive investments can be leveraged by using source code across several product generations. OpenCL is a powerful programming environment that allows the distribution of computing tasks across several architectures and a wide range of hardware units. This is an essential factor in custom applications which require a large number of workloads to be executed under a cost and energy saving aspect.
Seven PCI express 2.0 x1 lanes, one PCI express 2.0 x8 link, four super speed USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, four SATA 6 Gb/s ports, one gigabit ethernet interface plus high definition audio complement this very comprehensive offer. The congatec board controller provides a comprehensive selection of embedded PC features. Thanks to the independence of the x86 processor, functionalities like system monitoring or I²C bus are faster and more reliable even if the system is in standby mode.
