Kontron Introduces COMe-cOH2 COM Express Compact Computer-on-Modules

Kontron COM Express compact Computer-on-Modules COMe-cOH2

Kontron introduced the COMe-cOH2 COM Express compact Computer-on-Modules, which are based on the COM Express type 2 pin-out. The COMe-cOH2 modules are based on the energy efficient AMD Embedded G-Series accelerated processing units (APUs). There are two Kontron COMe-cOH2 variants: COMe-cOH2 T44R and COMe-cOH2 T56N. The COMe-cOH2 T44R features the 1.2 GHz AMD T44R single-core APU, 512 kb cache and AMD Radeon HD6250 GPU. The COMe-cOH2 T56N features the 1.65 GHz dual-core variant AMD T56N APU, AMD Radeon HD6310 graphics core and 2 x 512 kb cache. Both modules support up to 8 GByte of DDR3 RAM via two memory sockets.

The Kontron COM Express compact Computer-on-Modules COMe-cOH2 provides increased graphics performance to SFF COM Express applications with pin-out type 2, as well as parallel processing capability and low power consumption. OEMs and system developers can also use the new modules as a drop-in replacement to upgrade their existing applications.

The Kontron COMe-cOH2 supports Direct X 11 and OpenGL 4.0. The Kontron COM Express compact Computer-on-Modules COMe-cOH2 also support the Windows OS range, Linux, and VxWorks. The Kontron COMe-cOH2 variants are compliant with the new COM Express specification COM.0 rev. 2.0. In addition, they implement PCI 2.3, 32 bit / 33 MHz plus six Gen 2.0 PCI Express lanes.
