Kontron expands COMe Type 6 boards with AMD Ryzen processors

By Nick Flaherty

Kontron is expanding its portfolio of COMe-cVR6 (E2) Computer-on-Modules in the COM Express  Compact Type 6 form factor with new variants of AMD's Ryzen processor.

These will use the Ryzen V1404I with 4x 2.0 GHz and a power consumption of 12 to 25W. Versions with ECC memory down or with DDR4 SO-DIMM socket are possible. Both are designed for the industrial extended temperature range between -40 and +85 degrees Celsius. This makes the COMe-cVR6 modules particularly suitable for use in harsh environmental conditions, such as power utilities or in the defence sector, as well as for applications in medical imaging or industrial image processing, and for complex automation systems. 

The COMe-cVR6 (E2) computer-on-modules are based on the AMD Embedded V1000 processors, and the smaller form factor of the COM Express  Compact Modules allows significantly more space to be saved. This enables developers to produce more compact designs with maximum performance. In addition, the COMe-cVR6 (E2) variants with soldered-on memory are insensitive to vibration and shock. All other components such as voltage dividers, capacitors and controllers have also been chosen in regards to ensuring maximum resistance to environmental influences.

The new COMe-cVR6 (E2) supports the Kontron APPROTECT security solution based on Wibu-Systems CodeMeter. In addition, Kontron APPROTECT licensing also enables new business models such as 'pay-per-use' or time-based trial versions.
The modules are expected to be available during the first quarter of 2020.
