Congatec, a leading company for embedded computer modules, single board computers, and embedded design, has announced the global availability of its personal integration support for OEMs. It’s a premium service designed to simplify the use of embedded computing technologies. OEM customers can avail the benefit of a single contact point to get all their design-in questions answered.
Instead of speaking to constantly changing contact persons, the customers can get all their questions answered from a single contact point. The service is simple and comfortable for engineers particularly for the embedded computing market with no extra costs.
One highlight of the showcase is the quick boot demo based on Congatec’s Qseven conga-UMX6 computer-on-module with NXP’s i.MX6 processors. These enable a highly customizable quick boot of systems in less than a second from power off to full operation. This helps in delivering the best user experience at maximum power savings.

Typical use cases range from kiosk systems and video surveillance applications with motion detection to applications that need to be instantly available after an active impulse. For example- In-car infotainment systems, manifold HMIs/GUIs of any machinery, etc.
The new SMARC 2.0 computer-on-module demonstration on the basis of Intel® Atom™, Celeron® and Pentium® processors (codename Apollo Lake) is also quite impressive. Congatec presents the implementation of fully featured USB Type C connectivity with USB 3.1, power and graphics. The brand simplifies the use of embedded technology with this universally applicable form of plug & play functionality.
Besides, fully featured USB-C jacks are still rare and present a real breakthrough for standardizing the fragmented world of cable-based external interconnects. Such standardization is very beneficial for system engineers as well as system integrators, administrators, and device users.
A highlight for the high-end embedded and edge sever sectors are the new COM Express Type 7 based server-on-modules offering server-grade performance and functionality with their Intel® Xeon® D processors, 2x 10 GbE and 32 PCIe lanes. The latter can be used for powerful intra-system expansions such as GPGPUs and NVMe based ultra-fast storage devices as well as multi-module configurations on one single carrier board for high performance computing (HPC) designs. Application areas for the server-on-modules can be found in various scenarios from IT and carrier-grade server farms and cloudlets to edge, fog and Industry 4.0 servers.
