SolidRun’s first COM Express module is powered by the AMD Ryzen V3000 series APU

SolidRun has recently introduced the “Ryzen V3000 CX7” x86-based CoM Express 7 module powered by an AMD Ryzen V3000 Series V3C48 or V3C18I APU. This module is designed with AMD’s 6nm ‘Zen3’ architecture and can reach speeds up to 3.8GHz. It supports up to 96 GB of DDR5  memory, which can be either ECC or non-ECC, offering strong performance for different uses.

The module features 20 PCIe Gen4 lanes, dual 10Gbps Ethernet MAC, and two SATA Gen3 6Gbps interfaces (on V3C18I and V3C48 models) all these features make this module useful for high-speed networking, embedded computing, and storage applications.

Previously we have seen many similar COM Express & other modules based on the Ryzen V3000 Series of APUs including the ADLINK Express VR7 (COM Express) and another custom CPU module found in SolidRun Bedrock V3000 fanless industrial computer. Feel free to check those out if you are looking for similar modules.

SolidRun's Ryzen V3000 CX7 COM Express is a high-speed CoM module with a 3.8GHz clock, 96GB DDR5, and 20 PCIe lanes, for embedded computing.

Ryzen V3000 CX7 COM Express module specification:

  • CPU Options

  • Physical Specs
    • Dimensions – 125 x 95 mm, COM Express Type 7 form factor
    • 2 x 220 Pin COM headers.
    • Total height (including 5mm mating height) – 11.2mm.
  • Environmental Specs:
    • Temperature: Commercial (V3C48): 0°C to 70°C, Industrial (V3C18I): -40°C to 85°C.
    • Humidity (Non-condensing): 10% – 90%.

As of my understanding, the company is showcasing two generic options for the Ryzen V3000 CX7 module – the V3C18I is more energy-efficient with a 15W TDP, for lightweight systems. At the same time, the V3C48 offers higher performance at a 45W TDP, suitable for demanding tasks. There are also options for R7000 7840HS and R8000 8845HS processors that are headless (lacking integrated GPU) and intended for compute-only tasks. If the provided configurations don’t fit your requirements, SolidRun offers a Product Configuration Tool that enables customization to meet specific needs.

In terms of software support, the company is providing Linux and Windows compatibility, alongside other operating systems, tailored specifically for the Bedrock V3000 platform. Additionally, there is also a guide on using a serial console, creating a bootable USB drive and disabling EEE (Energy-Efficient Ethernet) on Intel I226 NICs for the V3000 series.

At the time of writing, SolidRun hasn’t released the pricing details for this Ryzen V3000 CX7 COM Express module yet. But you can find more information about this board on the official announcement and visit the Ryzen V3000 CX7 product page.

I’ve had an eye on those Bedrock fanless machines, or actually on any Ryzen from SolidRun, since July last year when CNX posted they were launching their 7000 line:

Unfortunately, almost an year has passed and searching their webshop for any “Bedrock” products still returns zero results:

So it looks SolidRun has great press releases but actually zero product 🙁

Too bad because I’m really interested in their machines, but not if they’re just vaporware/unobtanium… :-/

Or maybe I’m missing something?

It’s quite possible they don’t sell those on their online store. But you’d need to contact them to receive an evaluation unit or to get a quote. See the relevant links on the product page. They might do that because they have limited stocks, and considering the device is quite configurable, they don’t keep a version of each variant unless ordered.

I will try and contact them to see what turns out. Will update here if I learn anything. Thanks!

We are not selling the Bedrock lineup directly, but through resellers. You can find a list of them here,
