SECO’S INTEL®-BASED PORTFOLIO OF STANDARD MODULES AND SBCS AT EMBEDDED WORLD 2020
From February 25th to 27th 2020, embedded world exhibition & conference, the leading international tradeshow for embedded system technologies, is coming back to Nuremberg Exhibition Centre, Germany. SECO, an established company in the field of embedded electronics and a proud long-term exhibitor will showcase, at booth 1-330, its latest solutions to the tens of thousands of expected visitors.
SECO’s booth, among the many products of its portfolio, will showcase the company’s range of the most up-to-date Intel®-based solutions, available in many different form factors, to fully answer a broad range of market demands and design requirements. SECO is a long-time Intel® partner and part of its Early Access Programs, delivering to the market the most advanced Intel®-based solutions available to date.
To exploit the 8th Gen Intel® Core™ and Celeron™ 4000 Series Processors (formerly “Whiskey Lake”) features in a standard form factor, SECO developed the COMe-C55-CT6, a COM Express™ 3.0 Compact Type 6 module designed for mobile applications, combining high versatility with great power and excellent energy-efficiency. Ranging from 2 to 4 cores, this module features an Intel® UHD Graphics 620 and two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots supporting DDR4-2400 memory (up to 32GB), and it comes with a variety of connectivity interfaces (4 x USB 3.1, 8 x USB 2.0, up to 8 x PCI-e x 1). With support for DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenCL 2.1, and HW accelerated video decode and encode, the COMe-C55-CT6 excels in graphics and video performance, and is well-suited for biomedical and medical devices, edge computing, digital signage & infotainment, HMI, kiosks, transportation and measuring instruments.
The COMe-C08-BT6, instead, is a COM Express™ 3.0 Basic Type 6 Module with Intel®’s 9th generation Core™ / Xeon® / Pentium® / Celeron® (Coffee Lake Refresh) and 8th generation Core™ / Xeon® (formerly Coffee Lake) CPUs, with up to 6 cores for greater processing power. Mounting the Intel® UHD Graphics 630/P630 architecture with up to 48 execution units, this module can manage 3 independent displays at once, with a resolution up to 4096x2304 @60Hz, 24bpp. It also embeds an H.265 / HEVC hardware transcoder, a peculiarity that, combined with the outstanding performance and the compatibility with multiple video interfaces, makes this COM Express™ an ideal platform for projects operating in the field of gaming, digital signage, infotainment and HMI.
With regards to solutions based on Intel® Atom X Series, Intel® Celeron® J / N Series and Intel® Pentium® N Series (formerly Apollo Lake) processors, SECO will showcase products mounting processors from these families on each form factor.
Starting from SMARC modules, SECO will showcase its SM-B69, a SMARC Rel. 2.0 compliant module with the Intel® Atom X Series, Intel® Celeron® J / N Series and Intel® Pentium® N Series Processors. This high-performance, low-power, feature-rich solution, featuring a Dual Channel Soldered Down LPDDR4-2400 memory, can run up to 3 independent displays. It is ideal for many fields of application, like automotive, biomedical and medical, digital signage, IoT, mobile devices, robotics and visual computing.
As for the Pico-ITX form factor, the SBC-C41-pITX is a solution designed for IoT edge computing in harsh environments. It features Intel® Atom™ X Series, Intel® Celeron® J / N Series and Intel® Pentium® N Series Processors, integrated Intel® HD graphics 500 series controller and support for up to three independent displays. Also mounting 2x GbE, M.2 WWAN and WLAN slots, 8x GPI/Os, it’s the ideal solution for multiple video display solutions like edge computing, industrial control, info kiosks, IoT, surveillance, transportation.
The COMe-C24-CT6 is a COM Express™ 3.0 Compact Type 6 Module with the Intel® Atom™ X Series, Intel® Celeron® J / N Series and Intel® Pentium® N Series Processors. This module is a real powerhouse, delivering outstanding graphics performance through up to three independent displays at a time in 4K resolution. Its HW decoding/encoding capabilities support several video compression standards. All in all, this computer-on-module is a particularly great combination of high-end graphics and low power design and is the ideal match for low-power industrial applications.
Finally, the Q7-B03 is a Qseven® Rel. 2.1 compliant module with the Intel® Atom X Series, Intel® Celeron® J / N Series and Intel® Pentium® N Series Processors, merging high graphics performance and extreme temperature with unparalleled power efficiency. Also featuring broad connectivity capabilities, with 2x USB 3.0, 4x PCI-e, and 6x USB 2.0, the Q7-B03 is particularly suitable for low power embedded applications.
For those looking for a boxed solution, SECO developed the SYS-B68-IGW, a Smart Edge Compute Unit, a multi-connectivity and multi-protocol plug & play Industrial IoT gateway based on the Intel® Celeron® J / N Series and Intel® Pentium® N Series Processors. It comes with an integrated Intel® HD Graphics 505 or 500 series controller, 4K HW decoding and encoding of several video compression standards and, on the side of connectivity, 2x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0, 2x GbE, WWAN and WLAN M.2. Finally, the memory consists of a Quad Channel soldered down LPDDR4, up to 8GB. The SYS-B68-IPC is compatible with Edgehog, the industrial IoT platform developed by SECO whose features will be on display at embedded world as well.
The SYS-B68-IPC is a fanless, compact and versatile embedded box PC based on the Intel® Atom™ X Series (formerly Apollo Lake) Processors. It features an integrated Intel® HD Graphics 505 or 500 series controller, 4K HW decoding and encoding of HEVC (H.265), H.264, VP8, SVC, MVC and support for dual independent display. The memory consists of a Quad Channel soldered down LPDDR4, up to 8GB. Its main fields of applications are digital signage and infotainment, edge computing and robotics.
