Kontron expands its strategic solution portfolio with Texas Instruments processors

Augsburg, Germany, April 10, 2024 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computer Technology (ECT), announces a new SMARC module based on TI’s new AM67x scalable Edge AI processor, boasting up to quad Arm® Cortex®-A53 CPU cores at 1.4-GHz clock frequency. This design enables high-performance computing capabilities while simultaneously achieving lower power consumption compared to alternative cores.

The new SMARC module, based on the AM67x processor from Texas Instruments, enables high-resolution 3D rendering with low latency, high throughput with up to 8GB LPDDR4 memory access and flash storage with up to 32 GB eMMC, as well as USB3, PCIe Gen 3 and two Gigabit Ethernet channels for enhanced system-level connectivity for Linux-based systems. It supports applications such as robotic teach pendants, factory automation, medical, and test and measurement. The AM67x is a device that targets both the analytics and non-analytics markets, with end devices ranging from HMI and single board computers up to multi-camera vision systems with integrated AI.

The AM67x provides high-performance computing technology for both traditional and deep learning algorithms with an industry-leading power-to-performance ratio and a high level of system integration to enable scalability and lower costs for advanced vision camera applications. Key cores include the latest Arm® and GPU processors for general purpose computing, next-generation DSP with scalar and vector cores, dedicated deep learning and traditional algorithm accelerators, an integrated next-generation imaging subsystem (ISP), video codec, and MCU cores, all protected by industrial-grade security hardware accelerators.

“We recognize that AI and computer vision is one of the fastest growing markets for embedded and edge computing technologies. By offering a highly integrated processor platform, TI enables such applications and we are confident that the new market for AI edge server applications will benefit greatly from our Computer-on-Module approach to design these technologies for high data throughput”, said Peter Müller, VP Product Center Modules at Kontron Europe.

The new SMARC module will be available later this year.
