The new 100 Watt ecosystem is designed for embedded edge and micro servers that increasingly utilize 65-100 Watt COM Express Type 7 Server-on-Module performance for most cost-efficient scalability. It initially targets the recently launched conga-B7E3 modules featuring 3 GHz dual-die processors of the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 series that supports a maximum TDP of 100 Watt, up to 16 cores and 32 threads. These world's first 100 Watt Server-on-Modules in the COM Express Basic form factor (95 x 125 mm) can now get equipped with new heat spreaders and heatpipe adapters for an efficient heatpipe cooling even of extremely low profile 1U servers. By desi g ning systems in such a way that does not use rotating fans, it is possible to develop extremely robust embedded servers that are suitable for numerous applications at the IoT/Industry 4.0 edge.
Use cases for the 100 Watt ecosystem for embedded edge and micro servers include 5G telecom cloudlets, Industry 4.0 servers, smart robot cell servers with collaborative robotics, autonomous robotic and logistics vehicles with high speed vision and other situational awareness sensors. The ecosystem is further suitable for virtualized on-premise equipment in harsh environments to perform functions such as industrial routing, tactile internet, firewall security and intrusion detection systems, as well as VPN technologies - optionally in combination with various real-time controls and neural network computing for Artificial Intelligence (AI).
