The CPU-161-20 is a rugged module based on COM Express that features the Intel Atom x6000 Series and provides additional features via extensions on unused pins, delivering a range of novel interfaces that can greatly simplify the design of the carrier board and reduce its cost. The CPU-161-20 is also suitable for Functional Safety (FuSa) applications, and is certifiable according to IEC 61508-2:2010 SIL2 / ISO 13849-1 Cat 3 PL = d. An integrated, independent and specialized core oversees the semi-lockstep execution of critical workloads. On the 4 core versions of the CPU-161-20, critical and non-critical workloads can be executed simultaneously, via hypervisior separation of the FuSa and non-FuSa environments. Designed for fanless applications in harsh environments where long term reliability is a must, the CPU-161-20 delivers up to 4 CPU cores and 32 GPU execution units and in-band ECC RAM. If features an all-soldered down design to improve resilience and thermal coupling, and comes with a -40 to +85°C operating temperature. Both the CPU and the integrated GPU deliver great performance improvements compared to the previous Intel Atom generation, with a speed up that is up to 40% for traditional computing and up to 2x for graphics acceleration, while keeping the TDP at 12W or less.
The CPU-161-20 fully exploits a new capability of the Intel Atom x6000 Series: an embedded ARM core provides an independent engine that manages a large number of native industrial interfaces, including Ethernet ports, ADCs, Quadrature Encoders, GPIOs, UARTs and CAN-FD. The combination of the independent engine with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and Time Coordinated Computing (TCC) enables soft Real Time applications. TSN is an evolution of the Ethernet standard that provides time determinism to networked communications, while staying completely compatible with the exisiting Ethernet infrastructures. TCC bridges the sinchronization of the internal clocks with the network to achieve microsecond accuracy.
Supported operating systems include Everyware Linux (based on Yocto); additionally, the CPU-161-20 supports Everyware Software Framework (ESF), a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi middleware for IoT gateways. Professional Services are available for the CPU-161-20, starting from BIOS personalization and including carrier board design, system development and production. Deep module customization, such as feature changes are also available.
