The new quick starter set simplifies the evaluation of the first server-on-modules designed in accordance to PICMG’s COM Express Type 7 standard, poised to be deployed in cloud, edge, and fog server applications.

Engineers further benefit from reduced validation efforts of their own carrier board layouts, as they can re-use the proposed best practice components and PCB design schematics for their own dedicated next-gen modular micro servers.

The congatec quick starter set is perfectly suited for the design of Industry 4.0 micro servers communicating in real-time, redundant fog servers, and transcoding cloudlets at the edge of carrier-grade infrastructures typically operating on a massive scale.

It targets commercial temperature (0°C to 60°C) as well as extended temperature ranges (-40C to +85°C) for rooftop and public transportation installations and is universally applicable.

With 4x 10 Gbit and 1x 1 Gbit Ethernet, 4x USB 3.0 and baseboard management controller providing VGA, iKVM and virtual storage the new congatec evaluation carrier board can instantly be utilized at any test designer’s standard workspace.

“Cloud, edge, and fog application markets are all brand new – and engineers need a platform strategy to ensure fastest time to market for their challenging and usually time critical projects,” explains Christian Eder, Director Marketing at congatec.

Eder added, “by offering a quick starter set that is compiled out of our COM Express Type 7 modules, complementary cooling solutions, and our new evaluation carrier board conga-X7/EVAL.”
