Application-ready, upgraded COBALT™ 901|400 Series is a flexible building block solution that helps speed innovation of a new range of compute and graphically-intensive defense designs

Augsburg, Germany / San Diego, USA,  July 24, 2018 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), today introduced its COBALT 901|400 Series that features dramatically higher CPU and graphics performance. This addition to Kontron's rugged small form factor COBALT family is a flexible building block platform that offers a broad range of power and feature scalability and includes new advanced features that help boost defense design innovation. This scalability also gives designers full flexibility to select the performance that optimally matches their application's operational requirements. 

The COBALT 901|400 Series is based on Kontron's hardened COMe-bSL6 COM modules with the latest Intel® 6th Generation Quad-Core Xeon® E3-1505L processors giving designers a new generation of high performance and feature capabilities. Application-ready, the COBALT 901|400 Series delivers fast, yet power-efficient performance to meet decreasing SWaP demands in today's military systems. Its integrated high performance Intel® HD Graphics provides support for three independent displays with up to 4K resolution with almost double the performance of earlier Core i7 processors, enabling developers to create exceptionally clear, visually-advanced applications. 

In addition, this rugged IP67 fully sealed, compact system provides extended temperature (40°C to +71°C) operation and has no ITAR restrictions. Offering extensive I/O to meet specific application requirements, the COBALT 901|400 Series has two gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports, HDMI, USB 3.0 / 2.0, audio, GPIO, and serial ports. It also features a configurable front panel for modular I/O profile options. It supports up to 32 gigabytes (GBs) of DDR4 memory with ECC, 128 GB fixed storage (OS and application) and a RSSD bay option. 

Kontron will showcase the new COBALT 901|400 Series and its entire line of rugged COTS defense computing products at AUSA Annual Meeting 2018, Washington D.C. October 8-10 in Kontron Booth #8150.
