New benchmark modules for high-end embedded computing

congatec COM Express Type 6 modules with AMD Ryzen™ Embedded processors

The x86 rivalry has once again been rekindled. With the introduction of the AMD Ryzen™ Embedded processors, AMD has set a new benchmark that expands the lead in graphics performance by 108% and adds a remarkable 144% to overall computing performance. Two good reasons for congatec to implement the new processors on COM Express Type 6 modules. COM Express Type 6 modules are the standard solution for high-end embedded computing applications. The modules impress with their standardized footprint and standardized interface support, which developers use for their custom system designs. Developers benefit from a highly integrated super component that comes with an application-ready board support package (BSP) as well as extensive design guides and design templates for customer-specific carrier boards. Compared to full-custom designs, Computer-on-Modules have the potential to cut NRE costs by 50% to 90%. In addition, the PICMG COM Express standard ensures that it is possible to use standard-compliant Computer-on-Modules from different manufacturers and different processor configurations. This extends the longevity of system designs and, above all, makes them easily scalable....
