ADLINK’s COM-HPC Ampere Altra 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 2.6GHz with only 150 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 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.
