Kontron COMe-bCL6 now with 9th Gen Intel® processors and up to 128GB


Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computer Technology (ECT), is now providing the Kontron COMe-bCL6 Computer-on-Module in the COM Express® basic Type 6 form factor (125×95 mm) equipped with Intel® 9th Gen processors. With up to four memory sockets it enables a maximum memory expansion of up to 128GB. The COMe-bCL6 offers highest industrial quality and flexible application possibilities.

The COMe-bCL6 is available in different processor versions. All versions can be equipped with up to 128GB non-ECC/ECC DDR4 memory. The Intel® Optane(TM) system accelerator ensures fast data transfer from and to high-capacity mass storage devices. NVMe SSD also supports what is currently the fastest storage technology in a very compact package. Thanks to USB 3.1 support with up to 10Gbps and USB Type-C support, twice the bandwidth (compared to USB 3.0) can be achieved for fast data transfers.

The COMe-bCL6 is ideally suited as a powerful successor for existing solutions, as it takes over their pin out and feature implementation. Typical applications include communication, digital signage, professional gaming and entertainment, medical imaging, surveillance and security, industrial edge or server applications, as well as industrial plant, machine and robot control, both at shop floor level and from the control room. The rugged variants of the COMe-bCL6 meet the particular demands of the defense, transportation and avionics sectors by offering an extended feature set and industrial temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.

With the processors of the 9th Gen Intel® offers 25W CPUs for the first time. In addition to the already available 8th Gen processors, the COMe-bCL6 module is now also available in the following processor variants:

– Intel® Xeon® E-2276ME (6x 2.8 GHz, GT2, 45W/35W)

– Intel® Xeon® E-2276ML (6x 2.0 GHz, GT2, 25W)

– Intel® Xeon® E-2254ME (4x 2.6 GHz, GT2, 45W/35W)

– Intel® Xeon® E-2254ML (4x 1.7 GHz, GT2, 25W)

– Intel® Core(TM) i7-9850HE (6x 2.7 GHz, GT2, 45W/35W)

– Intel® Core(TM) i7-9850HL (6x 1.9 GHz, GT2, 25W)

– Intel® Core(TM) i3-9100HL (4x 1.6 GHz, GT2, 25W)

– Intel® Pentium® G5600E (2x 2.6 GHz, GT2, 35W)

– Intel® Celeron® G4930E (2x 2.4 GHz, GT2, 35W)

– Intel® Celeron® G4932E (2x 1.9 GHz, GT2, 25W)

The COMe-bCL6 supports the Kontron APPROTECT security solution based on Wibu-Systems CodeMeter®. In addition, Kontron APPROTECT Licensing enables the realization of new business models such as pay-per-use or time-based test versions.
