Advanced connectivity for embedded vision and the edge
congatec has announced that SGET has approved the new SMARC 2.1 specification for embedded vision. With Christian Eder as editor, congatec was reportedly instrumental in shaping the specification.
Cooling solutions for edge server ecosystem
congatec has presented three cooling solutions for the new 100W edge server ecosystem that is being built around AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 Series Processors. With rugged cooling solutions and processor modules for 24/7 operation from a single source, OEMs no longer need to think about how to design in a processor waste heat management system.
SMARC modules make new 3.5” boards scalable
After its successful entry into the 3.5” SBC market in the middle of last year, congatec has now introded a new carrier board in this standardised footprint, which impresses with a socket for Arm based SMARC modules. Its I/Os are optimised for use with congatec's entire NXP i.MX8 module portfolio and it comes in 12 different processor configuration.
Processors bring compute power to industrial fields
congatec has announced that the new conga-JC370 3.5-inch SBC with 8th generation Intel Core processors (code name Whiskey Lake) has received excellent design ratings in independent studies carried out by Elektor Magazine and also earned phenomenal positions in UserBenchmark speed tests.
From high-end to ultra-low-power edge servers
In its embedded world 2020 showcase, congatec has announced that it will be covering the entire spectrum of embedded edge computing, ranging from high-end edge servers to headless systems for ultra-low-power edge logic.
New low-end performance class for SMARC
congatec has introduced a new SMARC 2.0 Computer-on-Module with Arm Cortex-A53 based NXP Semiconductors i.MX 8M Nano processor. The conga-SMX8-Nano defines a new low-end performance class for SMARC.
Embedded edge computing: requirements have increased
Today, embedded computers are often deployed as edge computers. This is not just a buzzword but the answer to increased demands for IIoT-connected devices, machines and systems. Intel and congatec are addressing these new challenges with an extended ecosystem that is strongly geared towards concrete solutions and goes far beyond core processor functions.

Ecosystem for embedded edge and micro servers
congatec launched its new 100W ecosystem for embedded edge and micro servers at CIIF 2019. The ecosystem is designed for embedded edge and micro servers that increasingly utilise 65 to 100W COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Module performance for most cost-efficient scalability.
Embedded computing kit for AI uses Sparse Modeling
congatec and the Japanese AI experts at Hacarus have unveiled an embedded computing kit for Artificial Intelligence (AI) that uses Sparse Modeling technology. Sparse Modeling needs little training data to make highly accurate predictions. This is an advantage for vision-based inspection systems, among others, because the reject rate is naturally lower when manufacturing quality is high.
Embedded boards with 8th generation Intel Core processors
congatec has intensified its sales and marketing activities in Eastern Europe. With the support of local sales partner Ineltro, congatec aspires to become the number one provider of embedded computer boards and modules in Poland. The first visible sign of this increased local presence was congatec's participation at the Evertiq Expo.
Lower power computing with Arm
The modules featuring NXP i.MX 8 multi-core 32- and 64-bit ARM processors, which congatec offers in the SMARC 2.0 and Qseven standards, are robust and some are designed for the extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. They are predestined for a wide range of applications and even allow full solar operation with an energy consumption of less than 3-5W during normal operation. Here congatec discusses the potential industrial applicat...
Module with mini processor offers higher performance
congatec has introduced a new SMARC 2.0 Computer-on-Module with NXP i.MX 8M Mini processor. The conga-SMX8-Mini offers higher performance at significantly fewer watts due to the new 14nm FinFET structure. The module also offers impressive visualisation capabilities, including 3D graphics with full-HD resolution, despite low thermal and system cost.
New high end modules designed for embedded edge computing
congatec has announced 10 new COM Express Type 6 modules featuring the best and latest Intel embedded processor technology. The four Intel Xeon, three Intel Core, two Intel Celeron and one Intel Pentium processors are all based on the same Intel microarchitecture. This enables congatec to provide all 10 processors on one COM Express module design the conga-TS370. A total of 14 processor module variants are now available on this single microarchit...
Consumer BGA processors on high-quality embedded boards
Vendor of standardised and customised embedded computer boards and modules, congatec, has presented embedded form factors with the new 8th Generation Intel Core Mobile processors. This launch of COM Express Type 6 Compact modules, 3.5” SBCs, and Thin Mini-ITX motherboards, equipped with consumer-grade Intel Core i7-8565U Mobile processors, this marks a new processor generation for harsh and space-constrained environments.
Single board computer entry brings 40% performance boost
Supplier of standardised and customised embedded computer boards and modules, congatec, has entered the 3.5” single board computer (SBC) business with a 40% performance boost for existing applications. To achieve this performance increase, the new conga-JC370 3.5” SBCs are equipped with commercial-grade 8th Generation Intel Core i7 Mobile processors, codenamed Whiskey Lake.
Performance boost for rugged edge computing markets
Standardised and customised embedded computer boards and modules specialist, congatec, has introduced its first Server-on-Module with AMD embedded processors. The new conga-B7E3 Server-on-Module with the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 processor claims to offer up to 52% more instructions per clock when compared to legacy architectures.
