COM-HPC® Standard Products and Support

COM-HPC® Standard Products and Support


The development of COM-HPC® exceeds the demand for high-speed performance in embedded computers. COM-HPC®, expected to be ratified in early 2021, coexists with the COM Express® specification, but provides the scalability and enhanced performance for next-gen embedded system design.

COM-HPC® supports two different module types. COM-HPC® server modules are targeted for edge server applications. COM-HPC® client modules support robust embedded computing.

COM-HPC® provides access to more system memory (up to 1 TB RAM) and system flexibility for various compute engines like GPGPUs, FPGAs and DSPs.

COM-HPC® provides system and interface flexibility by adopting a pair of 400 pin connectors (800 pins total) based on Samtec's AcceleRate® HP High-Performance Arrays. Samtec COM-HPC®-aligned connectors support existing and future interfaces such as PCIe® 5.0 (32 Gbps) and up to 100 Gb Ethernet.

The female Module Receptables are employed at a standard height. The male Carrier Plugs vary to allow for either a 5 mm or 10 mm stack height.

Depending on the application, the connector pinouts are optimized for Client or Server module as defined in the COM-HPC® specification.

As signal speeds increase, each part of the signal path getting to and from the device needs to work to higher frequencies.  Strategies that worked in the past no longer suffice and cheaper connectors no longer make the cut. Cable lengths and trace lengths need to get shorter to ...
This month, we released a major new version of our Checkout to a beta state, made some upgrades to how we show lead times online, made 3D model downloads easier from the Search, and released a few more content updates. Here are the major website updates to for July 202...
Something occurred to me recently. AI hardware system architectures are really applications-specific. Computing platforms from laptops, desktops, workstations and servers follow classical architectures. Inputs, outputs, a central processing unit, busses (control, data and memory)...
