Computer-On-Module delivers cost-effective, highly scalable server-class performance

Kontron COMe-bEP7 offers scalable performance for industrial, medical and server applications

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, January 12, 2022. Embedded systems and display solutions provider, Review Display Systems Inc. (RDS) has announced the availability of a new Kontron COM Express Basic Type 7 Computer-On-Module. Extending Kontron’s product family of server-grade COM platforms, the industrial specification COMe-bEP7 features AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 SoC processors which deliver cost effective, highly scalable server-class performance in a compact form factor.

Suitable for a broad range of high-performance server applications, the Kontron COMe-bEP7 Type 7 offers scalable performance with up to sixteen processor cores. Four optional SODIMM sockets provide up to 128GB DDR4 RAM of memory. Networking capabilities and connectivity are ably supported with four 10Gb Ethernet interfaces and up to 32 PCIe Gen 3 lanes. Two SATA ports are provided, with the option to integrate an onboard NVMe if required.

Peter Marchant, embedded division manager, RDS said, “With a wealth of experience and knowledge in the design, manufacture and support, Kontron continue to deliver high quality, high performance, cost-effective embedded computing platforms. The COM Express-bEP7 is no exception and features a robust design offering a versatile, scalable solution with comprehensive high-speed connectivity, and a broad range of memory options.”

The industrial-grade COMe-bEP7 module can operate reliably in extreme temperature environments from -40°C to +85°C. On board peripheral support includes four USB 3.1, four USB 2.0 as well as LPC, SPI Flash, SMB, dual staged Watchdog and RTC. Additional specific features include a Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) for enhanced security.

With compact mechanical outline dimensions of just 95mm (h) x 125mm (w), and designed for use with a carrier board, the robust Kontron COMe-bEP7 is suited for a range of headless (no display) high-performance server applications. These include embedded edge and micro servers, medical image processing, artificial intelligence, camera inspection systems, and test and measurement equipment.

The Kontron COMe-bEP7 is now available from Review Display Systems Inc. To discuss new enterprise and business opportunities, contact RDS on +1-414 296 8360 or

Synopsys PPA(V) Voltage Optimization

Sponsored by Synopsys

Performance-per-watt has emerged as one of the highest priorities in design quality, leading to a shift in technology focus and design power optimization methodologies. Variable operating voltage possess high potential in optimizing performance-per-watt results but requires a signoff accurate and efficient methodology to explore. Synopsys Fusion Design Platform™, uniquely built on a singular RTL-to-GDSII data model, delivers a full-flow voltage optimization and closure methodology to achieve the best performance-per-watt results for the most demanding semiconductor segments.

Introducing new dynamic features for exterior automotive lights with DLP® technology

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Exterior lighting, primarily used to illuminate ground areas near the vehicle door, can now be transformed into a projection system used for both vehicle communication and unique styling features. A small lighting module that utilizes automotive-grade digital micromirror devices, such as the DLP2021-Q1 or DLP3021-Q1, can display an endless number of patterns in any color imaginable as well as communicate warnings and alerts to drivers and other vehicles.

Current Sense Resistor - WFC & WFCP Series

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vishay

If you are working on a telecom, consumer or industrial design, current sense resistors can give you a great way to detect and convert current to voltage. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Clinton Stiffler from Vishay about the what, where and how of Vishay’s WFC and WFCP current sense resistors. They investigate how these current sense resistors are constructed, how the flip-chip design of these current sense resistors reduces TCR compared to other chip resistors, and how you can get started using a Vishay current sense resistor in your next design.
