Congatec, a leading technology company for embedded computer modules and embedded design and manufacturing services, has unveiled a new high-end embedded computing portfolio for robotics and real-time automation at the Embedded Systems Expo & Conference (ESEC 2017) in Japan.
The comprehensive product portfolio has been designed from the ground up to meet highest ‘made in Germany’ quality standards. It includes the unique hypervisor technology from German real-time virtualization expert Real-Time Systems, consolidating the Congatec robotics computing offering in a single, application ready, a 4-in-1 hardware platform for PLC, HMI, IoT and Industry 4.0 systems.

Congatec’s new hardware virtualized platforms improve the integration of previously stand-alone robotics systems and build the basis for the next generation smart, cyber-physical controlled systems and deep learning humanoid robots. They also increase the utilization of costly hardware thus reducing investments, as well as, operational costs through lower energy consumption.
The combination of embedded boards and computer-on-modules is perfectly suited for connected robotics, industrial machine controls, and medical systems. This platform will benefit engineers by reducing the verification and validation efforts and rendering comprehensive documentation package that is ready for own certifications. It also lends personal integration support that delivers the entire real-time capable, virtualization-ready platform.
These benefits will help engineers to exploit the full Congatec multi-core embedded board and computer-on-module range, from Intel® Atom™, Celeron® and Pentium® processors (codename Apollo Lake) up to Intel® Core™ and Xeon® D processors (Codename Kaby Lake) and AMD G-Series and R-Series, for their various applications.
