SECO launches COM Express® Type 7 module with latest generation Intel® Xeon® D-1700 processors

Arezzo, February 24, 2022 - SECO, a global leader of innovative Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions, introduces JULIET, a COM Express® Type 7 module based on Intel® Xeon® D-1700 processors (formerly Ice Lake-D). This announcement is simultaneous with Intel®’s release of this latest generation processor platform, for which SECO is an Intel® Early Access Program partner.


Intel® Xeon® D-1700 processors represent a major step forward in performance and features over the previous generation. This high-performance processor family delivers server-class computing, hardware security, high bandwidth interfaces with industrial-class reliability, and extended temperature ratings for rugged applications. Integrated AI acceleration with supporting software libraries, hard real-time computing, and up to 20 CPU cores make these processors ideal for workload consolidation, running multiple virtual machines, or creating robust systems for critical applications such as high-bandwidth video storage/analytics, manufacturing, aerospace, and defense.


SECO leveraged the advanced features of these processors in the COM Express® JULIET to meet the stringent demands posed by High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications at the edge- optimizing innovation, performance, and cost.


The COM Express® JULIET features the Intel® Xeon® D-1700 (formerly Ice Lake- D) family of SoCs, with up to 10x cores and thermal design power (TDP) ranging from 40W up to 67W. Extended operating temperatures of -40°C to +85°C and industrial use conditions are available with selected SKUs. Vast networking and connectivity are provided via 4x 10Gigabit Ethernet interfaces (10GBASE-KR), directly managed by the Intel® Xeon® D-1700 processor, 1x Gigabit Ethernet port, 16x PCIe 4.0 lanes, 16x PCIe 3.0 lanes, and 4x Superspeed USB 5Gbps.         
Up to 128 GB of on-board system memory is provided by the up to four DDR4 SO-DIMM slots supporting DDR4-2933 memory, optionally with ECC. Mass storage is enabled via two SATA 3 channels. An optional TPM 2.0 is available. Supported operating systems include Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, Windows Server, Linux, and Wind River VxWorks. SECO offers accompanying thermal dissipation solutions.


Utilizing Intel® QuickAssist Technology, Intel® Boot Guard, Intel® Total Memory Encryption – Multi-Tenant to protect physical memory and isolate virtual machines, JULIET is an ideal solution for security-demanding applications, such as high-performance computing, industrial automation and control, and telecommunications.


With extreme performance, memory, connectivity, ruggedness, and advanced features for time sensitive networking (TSN) and cybersecurity, the Intel®-based COM Express® JULIET drives server-class performance in embedded computing at the edge in a small form factor (only 125 x 95 mm). It is well-suited for integration into computation-intensive and space-constrained applications.


SECO offers design support and design services for customers seeking to incorporate these boards into their products, including development of carrier or interface circuitry, subassemblies, and packaged systems.
