Kontron, a provider of IoT/Embedded Computer Technology (ECT), will present a wide range of IoT solutions across the entire value chain at embedded world 2022 in Nuremberg, Germany, from June 20-23.

Central themes of Kontron's trade show appearance in Hall 5, Booth 111 include high-performance computing with COM-HPC and AI applications, scalable modules, boards and systems based on the latest processors from Intel, AMD and various Arm architectures; as well as the kontron susietec toolset for complete digital solutions from a single source.

High-performance computing

For the first time Kontron presents modules and evaluation carriers for the new COM-HPC standard. The modules based on the COM-HPC Client Size A form factor and 12th Gen Intel Core™ processors offer concentrated graphics and computing power. The COM-HPC Server modules with Intel Xeon D-2700 processors are suitable for complex AI applications, high-performance network platforms as well as edge servers due to the breakthrough computing power and 100Gbit Ethernet.

Scalable modules and boards

Computer-on-Modules of all leading standards such as COM Express, SMARC 2.0 and Qseven will be shown, as well as for the first time a solderable System-on-Module with an NXP i.MX8M processor adhering to the new OSM (Open Standard Module) standard including a baseboard. Single-board computers and systems with Raspberry Pi for industrial applications will be complemented by a new SBC and a system with the 4th generation Compute Module. In addition to 2.5" and 3.5" SBCs with X86 and Arm architecture, Kontron will present an extensive motherboard portfolio ranging from Mini-STX, (Thin) Mini-ITX, Thin-ITX, to µATX and ATX. Three µATX motherboards with 12th Gen Intel Core i processors represent the first products in a series of new motherboards "designed and made in Germany", consisting of Mini-ITX, µATX as well as ATX. Corresponding SMARTCASE systems will also be shown for the various motherboards.

Scalable IoT edge computers and gateways

Furthermore, Kontron will present scalable IoT edge computers and gateways based on the latest COMs, SBCs and motherboards with different performance classes ranging from single-core Arm processors to current Intel Atom and Core i processors up to server class performance. Application-ready platforms with AI accelerator chips from Hailo and Google, converged networks (wireless, 5G, TSN) and integrated FuSa (Functional Safety) functionality according to EN IEC 61508 up to SIL 3 open up a wide range of application areas. Scalable solutions and comprehensive services for Artificial Intelligence (AI) include all services from consulting, hardware/software development to training of neural networks. A live AI demo will be shown by Kontron's strategic technology partner Hailo at the booth. Sophisticated HMI applications can be implemented via a wide range of industrial monitors and Panel PCs with X86 and Arm processors in various display sizes.

Everything from a single source from ODM/EMS to complete solutions

Through its ODM/EMS network in Europe, Kontron offers its customers not only regional proximity but also a very comprehensive portfolio of development and manufacturing services – from product development and related consulting and product design to purchasing and production – all from a single source.

Focus on digital transformation

For the first time, the new kontron susietec toolset can be experienced live, combining various software and hardware solutions with expertise from numerous international digitization projects. Kontron is thus opening a new chapter in the development of customised, high-tech, customer-oriented and innovative IoT solutions.

The Kontron press conference at embedded world will take place on Tuesday, June 21 at 11:00a.m. in the room ‘Athen’ at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg NCC Mitte, Level 1.
