HOW IT WORKS
The platform provides a cloud-native environment for embedded edge development.
It supports the open source edk2 as bootloader with UEFI, so customers can just download a stock aarch64 (arm64) ISO such as Ubuntu and install it through booting a live ISO directly on the target. The same convenience we have become used to by using x86 / amd64 target systems.
It's powered by Ampere Altra SoC that delivers the scalable power and performance necessary to drive a variety of use cases in the embedded development community from autonomous vehicles to medical instrumentation and industrial robotics

COM-HPC Modular Architecture
COM-HPC is the new PICMG standard for high-performance Computer-on-Modules. It aims to drive the newest breed of embedded edge servers with limitless scalability for today and tomorrow. The COM-HPC specification defines five different module sizes, with the largest Size E (Server Type) serving next-gen headless edge servers and accommodating up to 8 DIMMs.
