Kontron has introduced a new COM Express Basic Type 6 Module featuring the Intel Core Ultra Meteor Lake-H/U series processors.

An outstanding feature of the new processor technology is that it integrates multiple compute engines into one System-on-Chip (SoC), including P-cores, E-cores, Intel Arc GPU, and Intel AI Boost, an integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU).

Intel Core Ultra processors provide multiple compute engines, including Intel AI Boost, in one SoC, enabling fast AI and vision processing without an entry-level discrete GPU for data inference, real-time control, and AI in a single platform. This helps to accelerate inference at the Edge while reducing the need for a discrete accelerator and lowering system complexity and cost.

The COM Express basic Type 6 based on the Intel Core Ultra Meteor Lake-H/U Series comes along with Performance Hybrid architecture supporting up to 16 cores (up to 6 P-cores, 8 E-cores, and 2 LPE-cores), Intel Arc Graphics architecture with up to 8 Xe-Cores (128EUs) and integrated NPU for dedicated AI acceleration. Up to 96 GB of DDR5 memory, up to 2.5 Gb Ethernet and optional NVMe SSDs onboard enable high and energy-efficient data throughput with low latency.

The new processor technology is well suited for machine vision and automation applications, even in space- and power-constrained environments. Users can expect faster results from AI, more media streams per device, and long-life availability for long-term value.

The new COM Express Basic module will be available from Q3 2024.
