Kontron extends the current COM Express® basic type 7 product family with this new Intel Xeon D-1700 processor series, and has selected the Intel Xeon D-2700 processor series as the 1st platform to adopt the new PICMG® COM-HPC® server-type form factor, as it serves best new technology trends set by the COM-HPC® server specification. Additionally Kontron increased its telecommunications portfolio to include the new ME1310 designed to solve restricted space and power challenges by enabling complex applications closer to the network edge while continuing to simplify Open RAN deployment.
The Intel server-grade platform with up to 10 cores for the Intel Xeon D-1700 and a maximum of 20 cores for the Xeon D-2700 combined with a large memory capacity and PCIe Gen4 capability ensures outstanding performance for challenging application requirements.
The broad network connectivity with up to 100GbE provides ideal support for highest data throughput requirements in demanding network structures.
Complemented by real-time capabilities such as low latency and determinism with Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) available on selected SKUs, the platform is highly suitable for the usage in embedded industrial automation processes.
