congatec COM Express Type 7 server-on-modules for aircraft

Tuesday, 11 December, 2018 | Supplied by: Congatec Australia Pty Ltd



Designed for converged edge servers in aircraft, congatec’s COM Express Type 7 server-on-modules are suitable for content delivery applications, seatback screens and passengers’ mobile devices, as well as for predictive maintenance and other big data applications, video surveillance and cloud-based flight data recordings.

The platforms are also suitable for augmented reality applications in aviation to optimise the navigational capabilities in low-visibility areas, and are further applicable in AI-based virtual assistants for improving pilot productivity and efficiency as well as enhancing passengers’ flight experience. They enable engineers to tailor the performance of their virtualised aircraft edge servers to the given needs and to simply and efficiently scale the core performance in closed-loop engineering cycles by swapping modules.

The server-on-modules help to solve obsolescence issues, as the standardised modules can easily be upgraded in the design. Additionally, the densely packed robust modules help to optimise the SWaP-C demands of modern airborne applications due to their compact, lightweight and efficient footprint.

The edge server platforms for aircraft are based on the com express type 7 server-on-module standard specified by the PICMG and are equipped with Intel Atom, Pentium and Xeon processors. They meet all requirements for operating in harsh airborne environments, including support of the extended temperature ranges as well as high shock and vibration resistance. Providing optional coating for humidity resistance, they are qualified to meet extended environmental standards.
