Rugged Class Data Processing Engines to Digitize the Oil and Gas Industry

Congatec introduced a new rugged class of embedded edge server technologies designed for the digitization of the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry. Both sectors are characterized by distributed assets and infrastructures in harsh environments and therefore require ultra-robust embedded platforms for the digital transformation challenge that offers a huge potential for cost savings.

In order to meet the requirements of the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry, the new embedded edge computing platforms are designed for extended temperature ranges, with optional conformal coating to protect against the effects of salt water or condensation caused by large temperature fluctuations. In addition, they offer comprehensive server class RAS (reliability, availability, serviceability) features that enable OEMs to reliably manage thousands of devices remotely. As multicore designs with currently up to 6 cores and a particularly low 25W TDP, they are suitable for completely fanless and therefore maintenance-free 24/7 operation in hermetically sealed housings with the highest IP protection classes.

The computers are based on the higher performance COM Express computer-on-module standard Type 6 or Type 7.

COM Express Type 6 pin out:


  • 8th Generation Intel® Core™ SOC processor up to 4 cores
  • Configuration of display mode by software (LVDS/eDP)
  • Low power consumption (TDP 15W, cTDP 10W)
  • Up to 64 GByte dual channel DDR4 2400 MT/s
  • Optional eMMC 5.1 on board mass storage
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0)


  • 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor with up to 6 Cores
  • Intel® Xeon® processors for data center applications
  • Support for USB 3.1 Gen2 with 10Gbit/s
  • Intel® Optane™ memory support
  • ECC memory support
  • Up to 64 GByte dual channel DDR4 memory

COM Express Type 7 pin out:


  • Up to Intel® Xeon® D 1577 with 16 Cores
  • 2x 10 Gigabit Ethernet KR Interface
  • 32x PCI Express lanes
  • Up to 16 processor cores
  • Up to 24MByte Cache with Intel Cache Allocation Technology
  • Industrial grade variants
