A global provider of Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), Kontron has announced the continuation of the Security Solution product line with two new COM Express COMs. The Kontron COMe-bSL6 and COMe-bSL6R E2S modules are equipped with Kontron's standard hardware-based embedded Security Solution Approtect. Kontron is the first embedded computing supplier to offer full security protection embedded in its COM and motherboard offerings.

With the introduction of the COMe-bSL6 and COMe-bSL6R E2S products, Kontron delivers a new generation of high performance, feature-rich COM-modules based on the COM Express basic standard form factor (125x95mm) and Intel 6th gen Core/Xeon Processors E3 v5 Family. These new application-ready modules feature increased CPU and graphics performance compared to its predecessors. Integrated high performance Intel HD Graphics or Intel Iris Pro Graphics with 128M of on-package cache memory, can support three independent displays with up to 4K resolution and enable developers to create applications that provide excellent user experiences. In addition, the broad scalability of CPU performance grades gives users full flexibility to choose the optimal performance solution that matches their operational requirements.

Both models support up to 32GB of ECC/non-ECC DDR4 memory, resulting in a reduction in overall power consumption compared to DDR3-based COMs. The Kontron COMe-bSL6R E2S offers industrial grade features making it an ideal platform for applications in harsh and rugged environments. They both provide broad operating system support including Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, WEI8, WE8S, WES7, Linux and VxWorks allowing users to select the software that best suits their needs.

"With Kontron's Approtect Security Solution, developers integrating the COMe-bSL6/COMe-bSL6R E2S can more easily harden their application against a wide variety of security risks," commented Peter Müller, Head of Portfolio Management Standard Products at Kontron. "In addition to the end-to-end security of our new COMs offer, they are key products in Kontron's IoT roadmap. Their advanced processing and graphics performance benefits and other highly integrated technologies give our customers a flexible building block solution that helps them innovate a new range of embedded applications including IoT-ready devices."
