A new high-performance COM Express module is available in seven variants based on the new Intel AtomT processor E3800 product family and Intel Celeron processor N2920 formerly codenamed “Bay Trail.” The conga-TCA3 COM Express Type 6 Module from congatec offers a compelling entry price for this form factor. And the Intel Celeron N2920 1.6 GHz quad-core variant features a scenario design power (SDP) of only 4.5 watts. SDP provides realistic information on average power consumption in practice. Innovations include a large L2 cache shared by multiple cores and a faster Intel HD graphics unit compared with the previous generation. This turns new applications into visual experiences.

The modules support Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel AES-NI) set, which is more relevant than ever in practical application. This allows developers to offload particularly compute-intensive packaging and encryption routines of the well-known cryptographic algorithm Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) into hardware, thereby enabling high-performance encryption without putting a significant burden on the CPU cores.

The conga-TCA3 COM Express module provides up to 8 Gbyte fast DDR3L memory and two SO-DIMM sockets. The integrated graphics supports DirectX 11, OpenGL 3, OpenCL 1.2 and high-performance, flexible hardware decoding to decode even multiple high-resolution full HD videos in parallel. Up to 2,560 x 1,600 pixels with DisplayPort and 1,920 x 1,200 pixels with HDMI are natively supported in the processor. It is also possible to connect up to two independent display interfaces via 2x 24-bit LVDS.

Thanks to native USB 3.0 support, the modules achieve fast data transmission with low power consumption. A total of eight USB 2.0 ports are provided, one of which is designed for USB 3.0 Superspeed. Five PCI Express 2.0 lanes and two SATA interfaces with up to 3 Gbit/s enable fast and flexible system extensions. The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 helps with software compatibility. A CPI 5.0, I2C bus, LPC bus for easy integration of legacy I/O interfaces and Intel High Definition Audio complete the feature set. Volume pricing starts below $200.
