Cots moves to multicore: Kontron

  1. 1. Multicore Solutions with COM Express Embedded Systems Conference EPBU Presentation Jack London
  2. 2. Modular Architecture • One custom • Plus modules • Delivering platform carrier board with scaleable longevity and performances maximized ROI ETXexpress-AISanta Clara, CA microETXexpress-OHNovember 2010 www.kontron.com 2
  3. 3. Module Form Factors Basic FF Compact FF Ultra* FF ETXexpress microETXexpress nanoETXexpress Santa Clara, CA*Kontrons nanoETXexpress "ultra" modules are COM Express™ compatible with respect to connector location and pin-out definition, Type 1 and Type 10 www.kontron.com 3 November 2010
  4. 4. Advantages of COTS Multicore COMs System ScalabilityStandardized Reduced powerSpecifications consumption COTS Multicore COMs MultipleLong Life Vendors IP Preservation www.kontron.com 4
  5. 5. Transitions Transitioning to COTS solutions So long old friends… (PCI, ISA, VGA)  Replacing legacy / out dated technology Hello new ones...(PCIe, LPC, DP, HDMI )  Faster multicore performance clock speeds up to 2.66GHz x2  More I/O options e.g. USB 3.0, SATA 3. PCIe Gen 2  Smaller physical footprint  Low power options - Many dual cores are less than 20W TDP  Better performance per watt AND…5 | 5/18/2011 | FILENAME www.kontron.com
  6. 6. Preservation of Application IP Continuation of OEM Core Competency  Unique I/O structure and interfaces  Perpetuation of application-specific features  Extends Cap Ex investment  Improves ROI6 | 5/18/2011 | FILENAME www.kontron.com
  7. 7. COTS Products Using Multicore: Benefits:  Workload consolidation through multicore CPUs  Heterogeneous Core solutions CPU + GPU  Workload leveling within the module – multiple threads  Component reduction  increases performance: no inter-component latency  Frees up PCB real estate allowing for additional features  Cost reduction – every dollar counts  Multiple environments thanks to virtualization  Improves application security7 | 5/18/2011 | FILENAME www.kontron.com
  8. 8. Summary Multicore on COM Express: Improves system performance > workload consolidation Better Performance per Watt Reduces System Cost Broad Selection of Solution Options due to standardization Kontron has 30+ different module solutions8 | 5/18/2011 | FILENAME www.kontron.com
