Congatec has launched a COM Express product line based on the AMD Embedded G-series platform that is suitable for graphics-demanding embedded computing applications.

The integration of AMD Fusion technology expands the COM Express standard with a new processor architecture that combines processors and graphics cores in a compact package.

The company said system designers benefit from a powerful CPU and graphics performance, good performance-per-watt ratio, and flexible task allocation on the CPU and GPU.

Congatec claimed that with the Conga-BAF, streaming high-definition multimedia content and playing next-generation 3D games becomes easy and straightforward.

The company currently integrates five processors of the AMD Embedded G-series platform, ranging from an AMD T44R 1.2GHz single-core (64KB L1 cache, 512KB L2 cache) with 9W TDP, to an AMD T56N 1.6GHz dual core (64KB L1 cache, 512KB x2 L2 cache) with 18W TDP.

The Conga-BAF uses the AMD Hudson E1 Fusion controller hub and provides a compact two-chip solution with up to 8Gbyte dual-channel DDR3 memory.

The integrated graphics core with the Universal Video Decoder 3.0 for seamless processing of Blu-Ray content via HDCP (1,080p), MPEG-2 HD and DivX (MPEG-4) video interfaces supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0 for fast 2D and 3D image display as well as OpenCL 1.1.

The choice of graphics interfaces includes VGA, single-channel LVDS as well as Displayport and DVI/HDMI enabling the direct control of two independent displays.

Six PCI Express x1 Lanes, eight USB 2.0 ports, four Sata, one EIDE plus one Gigabit Ethernet interface allow flexible system expansion with high data bandwidth.

The Congatec board controller features ACPI 3.0 power management and high-definition audio.

congatec AG is an innovative business that specializes in the development and marketing of industrial computer modules using the standard form factors Qseven, COM Express, XTX and ETX. congatec is today a leading manufacturer in this field.

Embedded computer modules are very small computer boards that can be integrated in almost every application without a cable connection. Every signal is transmitted via small, densely packed board-to-board industrial connectors to a customer- or application-specific carrier board. This carrier board contains all the hardware expansions and also allows the cable less distribution of the required interfaces. Computer boards are equipped with numerous and various connectors in order to allow the connection of a variety of peripherals and expansions.

The company’s products can be used in a variety of industries and applications, such as industrial automation, medical technology, automotive supplies, aerospace and transportation. Core knowledge and technical know-how includes unique extended BIOS features as well as comprehensive driver and board support packages. Following the design-in phase, customers are given support via extensive product lifecycle management. congatec currently has 92 employees and branch offices in the UK, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Israel, Taiwan and the USA.
