This COM Express® module COMe-bBD7 extends Kontron’s product family of server-class COM platforms. The module features data-centre-grade CPU performance with up to 16 cores. This robust performance is combined with support for two 10GbE-KR ports making it ideal for network intensive implementations. The KR design allows for maximum flexibility by defining the physical interface – KR for backplane connectivity, Copper (RJ45) or fibre (SFP+) on the base board.
Furthermore the available NC-Si signals allow for the connection of a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) on the baseboard for the purpose of enabling out-of-band remote manageability. This enhances reliability and helps reducing the overall operating cost in general.
In addition, the COMe-bBD7 offers high-speed connectivity from configurable PCIe lanes with an up to PCIe x24 implementation for high I/O performance demands such as those required in medical applications. Offering a well-balanced multi-core CPU versus memory-size approach, it supports up to 32 gigabytes (GB) of ECC and non-ECC DDR4 memory.
