The COM-HPC Ampere Altra of our partner Adlink is the first 80-core COM-HPC Server Type module in the world. It is based on the Ampere® Altra® SoC based on the Arm Neoverse N1 architecture and offers up to 80 Arm v8.2 64-bit cores at 2.8GHz with only 175 Watt TDP. The excellent performance-per-watt architecture makes the COM-HPC Ampere Altra well suited to processing massive data at the edge without requiring a significant initial investment or ongoing maintenance costs.
The COM-HPC Ampere Altra is certified to comply with the Arm SystemReady program, ensuring it supports generic operating systems and subsequent layers of software, providing a seamless experience. Combined with the open source EDKII project, the module supports CentOS, Ubuntu and Yocto Linux operating systems.
Large dedicated memory caches and up to 768GB DDR4 system memory with 6 individual memory channels deliver predictable performance throughout the whole workload execution. Combined with a scalable processor from 32 to 80 cores allows the COM-HPC Ampere Altra to deliver reliable performance in many diverse applications.
Three PCIe x16 Gen4 lanes deliver a seamless accelerated heterogeneous architecture, ideal for autonomous driving, AI, robotic surgery, automatic drilling control & ship management.
Dedicated IPMB and PCIe x1 lane connect to a remote management BMC as well as to a shelf manager on the carrier. The device can be easily monitored out-of-band.
A prototyping system targeting general embedded applications is based on the COM-HPC Ampere Altra module and a reference carrier board, the COM-HPC Server Base. The system allows customers to quickly emulate the functionality of their end product for software development and hardware verification.
