Congatec, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, single board computers, and embedded design, has unveiled the extended roadmap so as to bring 10 GbE inter-connectivity to the industrial fields. With the introduction of this service, the company aims to realize the industry vision of entirely closed, fanless infrastructure components.
These low-power x86 nodes for gateway, edge, and fog computing has various IoT applications ranging from vision system infrastructure for public safety to real-time smart data servers in industry 4.0 applications to rugged telecom and network equipment.
The platform has been developed to enable the embedded system engineers to design small form factor edge nodes with a low power envelope of less than 20 watts. The details of the roadmap will be featured at the UK’s Engineering Design Show in Conventry and attendees will be able to make an early request for the platforms through Congatec’s exclusive early access program.
The new platforms deliver 10 GbE bandwidth in real-time and support virtualization technologies to maximize uptime and resilience, minimize latency, and ensure the most performance from each processing core. Along with Congatec Clod API, these enable data center managers to remotely manage and monitor systems. Besides, these platforms also offer minimum latency for storage devices and fast access lanes to various sensor networks, field buses, etc.
