congatec presents first quad-core single-chip Type 6 COM Express Compact Module
Based on the AMD G-Series SOC, the new conga-TCG combines compact design with improved graphics performance and power efficiency
DESIGN West, San Jose, California, 23 April 2013 * * * congatec AG, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, extends its COM Express product range with processors from the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC (System-On-Chip) family. This single-chip solution is based on
the AMD technology and integrates the computing power of the processor and graphics cores in a compact package.
Users benefit from outstanding multimedia performance, an excellent performance-per-watt ratio and flexible task allocation on the CPU and GPU. Thanks to these features, the new conga-TCG module is an ideal solution for cost-sensitive visualization and control applications.
"The AMD Embedded G-Series SOC processors are a great addition to our computer-on-module family and are particularly suitable for graphically demanding embedded computing applications," said Martin Danzer, Director Product Management, congatec AG.
congatec currently offers four processors from the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC platform, ranging from the 1.0 GHz dual-core AMD GX-210HA (1MB shared L2 cache) with only a 9 Watt TDP to the 2.0 GHz quad-core AMD GX-420CA (2MB shared L2 cache) with a 25 Watt TDP.
The integrated graphics core features the Universal Video Decoder 4.2 for seamless processing of BluRays with HDCP (1080p), MPEG-2, HD and DivX (MPEG-4) videos. The conga-TCG also supports DirectX® 11.1 and OpenGL 4.0 for fast 2D and 3D imaging and OpenCL 1.1. Interface options include VGA, Single/Dual channel 18/24bit LVDS, DisplayPort 1.2 and DVI / HDMI 1.4a and enable the direct control of two independent displays. DisplayPort 1.2 also enables multi-streaming, making it possible to control up to two displays per graphics port in daisy chain mode.
Four PCI Express x1 lanes Gen 2, two USB 3.0 ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, two SATA 3 Gb/s ports and a Gigabit Ethernet interface allow flexible system expansion at high data bandwidth. The congatec board controller, ACPI 3.0 power management and high-definition audio complete the package.
