Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), today announces the TRACe-B104-TR/IV, a compact multipurpose fanless edge computer for use in space-constrained rolling stock applications. The robust system ideally combines performance with flexible connectivity and storage options.
The 5G-ready TRACe-B104-TR/IV utlizes the performance and graphics capability of the new Intel Atom® x6425E System-On-Chip 10nm architecture which offers 1.7x the CPU performance and 2x the GPU performance of its previous generation.This is combined with a compact field-proven EN50155 rail-certified box computer design, supporting several operating systems such as Linux and Windows 10/ Windows 10 IoT while offering multiple I/O and storage options including 5G/LTE, Wi-Fi, SSD, GPS via M.2 and mPCIe sockets.
The high flexibility of the TRACe-B104 means it can be easily integrated in a wide range of demanding rail and bus applications, from onboard gateways and network video recorders to passenger infotainment, Wi-Fi, diagnostic and smart vehicle servers, as well as ticketing systems and UCPe/SDWANs. Equipped with Kontron SEC-Line firmware (hardened openWrt hypervisor) and cellular and/or Wi-Fi modems, the system is transformed into a secure edge server/router gateway offering hardware root of trust, cybersecurity protection, virtualization, and fleet management tools.
