congatec - Simplify the use of Embedded Computer Technology

congatec AG is a leading provider of embedded computer technology that simplifies medical device development. congatec’s embedded and single board computers are an ideal solution for a wide range of medical applications, from the latest Internet enabled smart health devices to the most demanding tomography systems used for CRT, MRT, X-Ray and Ultrasound scans.


Modern medical technology requires a significant amount of computing power and must meet the highest safety and reliability standards. The demand for small, mobile, low-power, connected devices with highly interactive graphical user interfaces is rapidly growing in the medical market. The need to care for an ageing and growing population also puts the spotlight on cost.

congatec offers Computer-on-Modules (COMs) and single board computers (SBCs) in standard COM Express, Qseven and Mini-ITX form factors that address the varying demands of the medical market perfectly. Thanks to the company's close partnerships with all three leading chip manufacturers Intel, AMD and ARM, customers gain easy and immediate access to the latest processor generation that best fits their specific application.

The COM approach offers medical device manufacturers an inherent migration path, as the standardized modules are interchangeable making future upgrades easy. This also simplifies the certification process for product variants, providing even greater commercial advantage for manufacturers.

The congatec medical product line at a glance

With their highly scalable computing and graphics performance, congatec's COM Express modules enable the development of application-ready product families for a variety of uses across many industries, including medical technology. The high quality of the modules, their excellent EMI characteristics and long-term availability of at least 7 years guarantee low development, maintenance and certification costs..

The compact Qseven modules are a particularly cost effective and energy efficient solution for smart and ultra-mobile healthcare devices. Thanks to their small form factor and extremely low power consumption the modules are easy to design into portable applications.

The Mini-ITX SBCs from congatec combine qualities such as high performance, low power and high reliability with the cost advantages of high volume production. The thin Mini-ITX design of just 20mm is ideal for applications where space comes at a premium while optimization for 24/7 operation suits the demands of the medical sector where device failure can be a matter of life and death.

More than a module supplier

As a full service company, congatec is committed to providing technical support throughout the entire product life cycle. Starting with design-in support, congatec experts help customers make the necessary adjustments when integrating the modules into their final applications, such as CT scanners or ultrasound devices. Along with providing carrier board design and special cooling solutions, congatec also assists customers in the development of complete medical systems.

Benefit from the best embedded computing expertise

Embedded computing is congatec's passion. In just a decade, the company has established itself as a leading provider of embedded computer modules. According to a 2014 study by renowned market research firm IHS Research, congatec ranks second in the world market for embedded computer boards, modules and systems.

The clear focus on COMs has created a highly specialized team of experienced congatec employees. Access to this unrivalled industry knowledge allows customers to focus on their core competencies in medical device development.

congatec enables customers to develop their products faster and more efficiently. This is due to the fact that even major technology companies have difficulties in keeping pace with frequent modifications to CPU and chipset technology, prompting them to purchase pre-integrated hardware and service.

congatec is always one of the first players on the market to present the latest chipset technologies on embedded CPU modules. The latest BIOS and hardware features in combination with the most up-to-date embedded chip sets differentiate congatec products from those of its competitors.
