Advantech, a member of the PICMG COM-HPC subcommittee and the leading solution provider for A-IoT platforms and building blocks, announces COM-HPC. The new standard will be the technological platform for a series of high-performance Computer-on-Modules to be released by Advantech as an extension of its portfolio. They will be designed to meet the exacting requirements of next-generation IoT markets, where they have to handle and process with very high quantities of data.
This new standard was necessary as the existing standard COM Express Type 7, in place since 2016, is not able to handle the demands of new requirements, such as 5G-data communication. Upcoming applications will be the real time data synchronization and the processing of machinery in factory lines – or different locations – for industrial automation. Defense-systems, medical imaging applications and warehouses employing robots will also be typical use-cases for this high-performance module.
PICMG Is excited about the pending completion of the COM-HPC specification. Advantech continues to be a leader in IoT intelligent systems and embedded platforms. Their commitment to the development of COM-HPC will lead to the rapid adoption of the forthcoming open specification.
said by Jessica Isquith, PICMG President.
Advantech played an important role in defining the specifications for more than two years. The standard is scheduled for ratification at the end of 2020.
High Core Count and Memory Capacity Delivers Improved Performance
All five COM-HPC module standards (A ~ E) will utilize 800 pins via two new high-speed connectors with at least 4 x 100 pins each and 2 x 400-pin board -to-board connectors.
