With the launch of the new embedded motherboard KTQM87/mITX, Kontron is extending its long-term available Mini-ITX portfolio to include a vibration- and shock-proof motherboard with a soldered 4th generation Intel Core processor (formerly codenamed 'Haswell').
This 'mini powerhouse' has been designed especially for performance-intensive applications in harsh environments and supports the extended temperature range of 0°C to 60°C.
With its outstanding graphics performance, the board operates up to three independent displays or an ultra-high resolution 4K monitor. Additionally, the Kontron KTQM87/mITX boasts an excellent performance-per-watt ratio and optimized Thermal Design Power (TDP).
The ATX-compatible motherboard offers an extensive ecosystem, so that developers can design even the most demanding systems based on standard components. This reduces R&D costs and accelerates time-to-market.
Examples of target applications for the long-term available embedded motherboards are in IPCs, medical computers for image processing, professional gaming systems or digital signage players and point-of-sales terminals.
The Kontron KTQM87/mITX excels with a wide selection of interfaces. In addition, customer-specific functions can be integrated via standard extension slots such as PCI Express and Mini PCIe as well as Kontron's own embedded Feature Connector.
With its SIM-card socket, the motherboard is also destined for deployment in intelligent, distributed 'Internet of Things' applications. By supporting the Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 2.0, the board offers DSP class I/O processing performance. This qualifies the ECC supporting Kontron KTQM87/mITX as a platform for industrial real-time control applications.
