Mouser Electronics and Kontron have agreed a global distribution deal covering Kontron computer-on-modules (COMs), including COM Express modules based on Intel processors.

Now available at Mouser Electronics is the scalable COMe-cAL6 series comprises COM Express Type 6 modules that combine state-of-the-art image processing and graphics capabilities with extensive real-time computing.

The modules are available in dual-core and quad-core versions for applications, such as POS/POI systems, digital signage, gaming and medical PCs, human-machine interfaces, and industrial machinery.

The COMe-mAL10 is a series of credit card-sized COMs with up to 8GBytes of DDR3L memory. The IoT-ready modules maximise graphics and processing performance in a robust, energy-efficient, and standardised Type 10 COM mini form factor.

An integrated Intel Gen 9 HD low-power graphics controller provides 4K encode/decode algorithms supporting HEVC, H.264 and VP8/VP9 formats.

The SMARC-sAMX7 modules capitalise on a low-power NXP Semiconductors i.MX 7 processor, available in both single-core and dual-core configurations, to enable development of smart devices in a fanless, compact SMARC 2.0 form factor.

The scalable modules balance processor and graphics performance while retaining a very low energy footprint, making them ideal for IoT and Industry 4.0 applications.

They offer up to 2 GBytes of DDR3L and 8 GBytes of eMMC, with up to two Gigabit Ethernet, three PCIe, and four USB 4.0 ports.

Both Mouser Electronics and Kontron will be exhibiting at the embedded world 2020 exhibition in Nuremberg (February 25-27).

Kontron will be presenting Computer-on-Modules, SBCs and motherboards of all leading standards with the latest processors from Intel, AMD and NXP, as well as x86 and ARM-based computer systems and panel PCs.

On the basis of the IoT software framework SUSiEtec, the company will offer a wide range of different applications in Nuremberg - from sensor to cloud - for TSN, OPC UA, artificial intelligence, machine learning and object recognition as well as secure OS and remote software updates and predictive maintenance.

In addition to Microsoft Windows 10 IoT, Kontron also supports Linux with real-time extensions.
