Deliver Superior Performance, Security, and Connectivity at the Edge

Solution Briefs Intel Processor AI

Engineered with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro®, Intel® Xeon® W-11000E Series, and Intel® Celeron® processors, the SECO CHPC-D57-CSA COM-HPC® Client module Size A helps ensure secure, high-performance computing and interoperability for AI, video, and other data-intensive applications at the edge.

Today’s digital-first businesses and consumers are generating unprecedented volumes of data from devices and systems unimaginable just a decade ago - and this data needs to be captured and leveraged in real-time for a growing array of use cases emerging at the edge. Take, for example, medical imaging data requiring real-time processing and display to aid in patient care and machine vision applications whereby high-resolution smart cameras must transfer data immediately to drive manufacturing robotics. Also consider the vast amounts of data generated by public sector systems located in avionics, on submarines, or at field bases that require real-time analysis for decision-making. For OEMs and their customers, there is a strong need for high-performance edge computing solutions to drive a new class of complex, data-intensive applications. Powered by 11th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro®, Intel® Xeon® W-11000E Series, and Intel®

Celeron® processors, the SECO CHPC-D57-CSA COM-HPC® Client module Size A helps accelerate processing for data-rich applications while supporting security and reliability in the harshest, most remote environments.

"Use cases like AI at the edge, machine vision, and the increasing cooperation between humans and machines are demanding higher performance overall: to power onboard processing, extend interfacing capabilities, and enable high-end graphics, for example. Built on 11th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro®, Intel® Xeon® W-11000E Series, and Intel® Celeron® processors, SECO’s CHPC-D57-CSA provides a ready-to-use solution to fulfil this need." - Davide Catani, chief technology officer for SECO

Challenges

Across industries and geographies, the amount of data generated by devices continues to increase. Also, IoT devices used for applications like robotics, warehouse automation, medical imaging, and safety/mission control need to perform reliably even in extreme temperatures and under the most unforgiving environmental conditions. The use of graphics and video in applications is fast growing as well, placing even greater performance demands on edge computing solutions. Today’s competitive landscape requires OEMs and their customers to bring products to market faster than ever before. Accordingly, Computer on Modules (COMs) speed the product development cycle by providing an embedded computing platform with the processing element already included in a standard form factor. As a result, OEMs and their customers can quickly customize the system with an application-specific companion board. COMs today must be highly flexible in their design to ensure the interoperability needed for fast integration with new systems, applications, and devices. And because cyber threats are increasing in prevalence and complexity, it is more challenging than ever to secure edge computing systems and data.

Solution: SECO'S CHPC-D57-CSA COMHPC Client Module Size A, powered by 11th Gen Intel Core, Intel Xeon W-11000E Series, and Intel Celeron Processors

Intel® processors enable near-real-time processing of today’s high data rates while ensuring the reliable uptime and rugged durability to power heavy-workload applications, such as:

  • Avionics
  • Automation
  • Public sector processes
  • Robotics
  • Industrial control
  • Machine vision
  • Transportation
  • Digital signage
  • Gaming
  • Biomedicine

How it works

Engineered to process heavy workloads at the edge, the SECO CHPC-D57-CSA accelerates data processing with up to eight cores and up to 32 graphics execution units. Four4Kp60 display pipes or one 8Kp60 in high-dynamic-range(HDR) industrial-grade SKUs are included to provide high-end graphics processing. Total memory encryption provides a security layer that can help thwart attacks. Designed and verified for optimized signal integrity including high-speed,off-board interfaces, the module ensures interoperability with carrier boards and third-party devices.

Functional Safety standard compliance support

For systems and applications that must comply with functional safety (FuSa) standards, the SECO CHPC-D57-CSA uses the Intel® Functional Safety Essential Design Package(Intel® FSEDP), which provides the technical documentation needed to support and speed up the development and certification of functional safety applications. Documentation also aids in facilitating the device usage in applications requiring compliance with Functional Safety standards, such as IEC 61508.

SECO’s CHPC-D57-CSA includes these features:

  • 20x PCIe Gen 4 lanes, directly managed by the processor core
  • Up to 24x PCIe Gen 3 lanes
  • 2x DDR4-3200 SODIMM slots with ECC (up to 64 GB)
  • Up to 2x NBASE-T Ethernet ports with support for time-sensitive networking (TSN)
  • 2x USB 4.0/USB 3.2/8x USB 2.0

Intel processors deliver new level of performance and interoperability at the edge

The SECO CHPC-D57-CSA modules feature 11th Gen Intel Core processors, which deliver significant generation-overgeneration performance gains, including up to a 32 percent performance gain in single-thread performance (1) up to a 65 percent performance gain in multithread performance (2) and up to 70 percent faster graphics performance (3). These gains, and especially the boost in multithread performance,significantly accelerate processing for AI, graphics, and other data-intensive applications.
