Kontron: COBALT 901|400 series helps speed compute and graphically-intensive defense designs
Kontron introduced its COBALT 901|400 Series that features higher CPU and graphics performance. This addition to Kontron's rugged small form factor COBALT family is a flexible building block platform that offers a broad range of power and feature scalability and includes new advanced features that help boost defense design innovation.
The COBALT 901|400 Series is based on Kontron's hardened COMe-bSL6 COM modules with the latest Intel 6th Generation Quad-Core Xeon E3-1505L processors giving designers a new generation of high performance and feature capabilities. Application-ready, the COBALT 901|400 Series delivers fast, yet power-efficient performance to meet decreasing SWaP demands in today's military systems. Its integrated high performance Intel HD Graphics provides support for three independent displays with up to 4K resolution with almost double the performance of earlier Core i7 processors, enabling developers to create exceptionally clear, visually-advanced applications.
In addition, this rugged IP67 fully sealed, compact system provides extended temperature and has no ITAR restrictions. Offering extensive I/O to meet specific application requirements, the COBALT 901|400 Series has two gigabit Ethernet ports, HDMI, USB 3.0 / 2.0, audio, GPIO, and serial ports. It also features a configurable front panel for modular I/O profile options. It supports up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory with ECC, 128 GB fixed storage (OS and application) and a RSSD bay option.
