Aaeon pairs server-grade Intel Xeon with COM Express Type 7 form factor

Computer on module (COM) developer, Aaeon’s latest module is the COM-ICDB7 which is powered by the third generation Intel Xeon D processor platform (formerly known as Ice Lake-D).

It is designed for applications such as drone fleet control, biomedical science, and data analysis applications, said Aaeon. The COM-ICDB7 offers server-grade CPU performance of up to 10 cores and 20 threads via the third generation Intel Xeon processors on a 4.92 x 3.75 inch (125 x 95mm) COM Express Type 7 form factor. 

Supporting a 70W CPU, the COM-ICDB7 can power multiple expansion modules via its PCIe 4.0 [x16] slot and four PCIe 3.0 [x4] slots. It also has two DDR4 SODIMM sockets providing up to 64Gbyte system memory with ECC (error code correction) support, which adds stability to large data analytics applications. 

There are also four 10GbE ports accessible via its carrier board for high speed, high volume data transference. These features combine to ensure the COM-ICDB7 is able to execute complex computing tasks, for solutions deployed in fields such as industrial automation, edge servers and data centres.

Optional additions to the COM-ICDB7 include a custom carrier board, which offers a more cost-effective approach to outdoor deployment, said Aaeon.

The COM-ICDB7 is eligible for application-specific customisation such as wider operational temperature ranges for operation in harsh environments where the COM-ICDB7 could be used to power smart city, transport, and drone fleet control applications. 

Established in 1992, Aaeon designs and manufactures industrial IoT and AI edge products. Its portfolio includes industrial motherboards and systems, rugged tablets, embedded AI edge systems, uCPE network appliances, and LoRaWAN / WWAN solutions. The company works closely with cities and governments to develop and deploy Smart City ecosystems. Aaeon is recognised as a Titanium member of the Intel Internet of Things Solutions Alliance.
