MSC Technologies Presents First COM Express Type 7 Module With Intel Atom C3000 Processor For Server Applications
Stutensee, Germany – MSC Technologies, the technology brand of Avnet Integrated Solutions, presents the MSC C7B-DV, its first COM Express™ module in accordance with the new Type 7 standard, at the embedded world 2018 in Hall 2, Booth 238. COM Express™ Type 7 was introduced in the current COM.0 Rev. 3.0 specification of the PICMG (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group).
The MSC C7B-DV COM Express™ Type 7 module is equipped with a powerful Intel® Atom™ C3000 series server processor (“Denverton”) and is especially designed for applications where large amounts of data are processed and transferred at high bandwidths. Such applications include edge servers, content servers, Wi-Fi routers in public transportation and image or video processing systems in industry and healthcare. For use in harsh environmental conditions, individual module variants are also specified for the industrial temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. The computer-on-module will be available for at least fifteen years from the product launch of the processor.
The modules can be equipped with seven different Intel® Atom™ server processors, offering broad scalability from four to sixteen processor cores. Relatively inexpensive entry-level models are also available. Via two 260-pin SO-DIMM sockets, the module can be equipped with fast DDR4 SDRAMs with a maximum capacity of 48 GB, optionally with Error Correction Code (ECC). The integrated Infineon Trusted Platform Module TPM 2.0 provides additional security for critical network installations.
Up to five Ethernet interfaces, four with 10Gb and one connection with 1Gb transfer rate, provide high network bandwidth. Up to 22 PCI Express™ (PCIe) lanes enable flexible system expansions and the connection of fast SSD memory. In addition, there are two SATA 6Gb/s interfaces, three USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 and two serial high-speed connections.
To evaluate the MSC C7B-DV family of server modules, MSC Technologies supplies a matching Type 7 carrier board in ATX form factor and a comprehensive starter kit. In addition to numerous interfaces and PCIe slots, the carrier board can optionally be provided with a Board Management Controller (BMC) that supports out-of-band management.
