congatec launched a 100 Watt ecosystem, designed for embedded edge and micro servers that increasingly utilize 65-100 Watt COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Module performance for most cost-efficient scalability. It initially targets the recently launched conga-B7E3 modules featuring 3 GHz dual-die processors of the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 series that supports a maximum TDP of 100 Watt, up to 16 cores and 32 threads.
These Server-on-Modules in the COM Express Basic form factor (95 x 125 mm) are available with heat spreaders and heatpipe adapters for even low-profile 1U servers. The ecosystem is further suitable for virtualized on-premise equipment in harsh environments. The 100 Watt ecosystem also includes starter kits with the two different application-ready server-grade carrier boards conga-X7EVAL and conga-STX7 that, among other things, execute four 10 GbE interfaces, which are server-compatible with SFP+ cages for both copper and fiber optic cables.
Notable software features of the 100 Watt ecosystem include support for real-time configurations to avoid latencies caused by processor-side TDP management. Hardware-integrated virtualization and security features of the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 SoC include Secure Boot System, Secure Memory Encryption (SME), and Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV), as well as a secure migration channel between two SEV-capable platforms. Support is also provided for IPsec with integrated crypto acceleration.
