Page 1 of 1
A complete, rugged small form factor system is both fanless and fully enclosed and provides efficient thermal management in a small 5.5 x 8.5 x 3.5-inch (139.7 x 215.89 x 88.89 mm) form factor weighing less than 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg). The next-generation Computer Brick Alternative COBALT system from Kontron leverages the company’s hardened COM Express Computer-on-Modules (COMs) and optimizes the latest Intel x86 architecture. The Kontron COBALT provides additional tightly coupled mezzanine features, a ruggedized compact carrier board and System Interface Board (SIB) that give customers increased I/O options to meet specific edge application requirements.
This modular and flexible platform matches ongoing development demands in applications such as rail transportation, military (ground, ship, avionics, unmanned), commercial avionics, oil & gas, outdoor communications or anywhere small high-compute platforms are required.
It is designed to meet severe environment operational demands in many industries. The IP67 chassis is designed to operate reliably in a multitude of conditions including extreme temperatures, shock, vibration and EMI. Powering the Kontron COBALT base system is a third generation Intel dual-core-based COM Express Type 6 module that features ECC, rapid shutdown design and 100% extended temperature screening with the option of removable or fixed SSDs and/or fixed mSATA storage. Windows, Linux and VxWorks operating system and software support packages are also available. The carrier board design maximizes the system’s capabilities while minimizing its overall size and meeting higher temperature and shock and vibration conditions.
