All these new addition give Congatec a leading position with respect to introduction of new processors capable of surviving through space-constrained and harsh environments. The best part is that Congatec is providing early access to OEM customers and leverage the first-to-market strategies.
A completely new and advanced high-end processor technology, it will pull up the performance of devices by approx. 40% which is way ahead as compared to the earlier U-Series processors. These new processors will be enabled by 4 and not 2 cores along with a better grade microarchitecture.
Newly developed processors are prime sources for bringing up embedded versions of new microarchitecture productions. These reach the market way before their embedded iterations. As compared to their embedded counterparts, the consumer grade processors are deficit in lasting support which might not be the top priority in the race for creating high-performance embedded systems.
Even OEM consumers who are happy with such arrangements need a reliable and strong embedded form factor. These structures can make ideal use of COM Express Type 6 modules, Thin Mini-ITX motherboards, as well as the hybrid embedded 3.5-inch SBCs. These products are perfect even for those vendors who need to make use of embedded variants in series generation.
