We’ve already seen the newly announced Intel Alder Lake-S desktop IoT processors in some COM Express and COM HPC modules, and quickly mentioned Vecow ECX-3000 rugged computer, and now, OnLogic has just announced the Karbon 800 Series, a family of Alder Lake-S embedded computers.
There will be four Karbon 800 models at launch, equipped with up to an Intel Core i9 16-core processor, 64 GB of DDR4 ECC or non-ECC memory, as well as single and dual PCIe Gen 4 slots, and optional “ModBay” hot-swappable bays to add connectivity and storage option up to a six 2.5-inch SSD RAID array or 14 Ethernet ports.

The Intel Alder Lake-S family is comprised of 35W to 65W processors, but OnLogic can still provide fanless or fanless hybrid cooling for the embedded systems. The company also lists dual display support and -40°C to +70°C operating temperature range.
Target applications for the Karbon 800 Series include machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), advanced manufacturing, automation, and other Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT applications, that require “powerful computing in commercial and industrial environments”.
OnLogic says the Karbon 800 family is expected to launch early in the spring of 2022, but pricing is currently undisclosed. More limited information may be found on the product page and press release, and the full specifications and documentation should become available closer to the launch date.
