SECO presents its latest product based on the brand-new Intel 8th generation Core/Xeon CPUs, unveiled just today, April 3rd, 2018, by Intel: COMe-C08-BT6. The launch is taking place at the same time with the launch of Intel 8th generation Core/Xeon, since SECO is part of the early access program.
COMe-C08-BT6, a COM Express 3.0 Basic Type 6 Module, is an extraordinary platform as regards performance: with up to six cores at up to 4.7 GHz – not to mention the Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, that adds 12 virtual cores on top of that – this module can handle anything you throw at it. Speaking of the CPU, COMe-C08-BT6 enables the Intel 8th Generation Core i7/i5/Xeon Processors, reaching up to 12 threads.
As far as graphics are concerned, the module is equally impressive, mounting the Intel Gen9 LP graphic core architecture that can manage up to 3 independent displays at once, with a resolution up to 4096 x 2304 @60Hz, 24bpp. Frameworks for high-end graphics and multimedia, such as DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.5, are supported, as well as hardware acceleration. Finally, the module also embeds an H.265 / HEVC hardware transcoder – a characteristic that, combined with the outstanding performance and the compatibility with multiple video interfaces, makes it an ideal platform for projects operating in the field of gaming, digital signage, infotainment, and HMI.
When it comes to USB ports the module is also well-equipped, with 4x USB 3.1 Gen. 2 host ports and 8x USB 2.0 host ports. In terms of memory, the board features a couple of DDR4 SO-DIMM Slots for up to 32 GB with ECC technology, up to 2666 MHz. Concerning operating systems, the module can smoothly run Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit, and Linux 64-bit. Additional application scenarios include biomedical devices, Industry 4.0, automation and telco.
