Kontron intends to present three new embedded motherboards with 45nm Intel Core2 Quad and Intel Core2 Duo processors in form factors Mini-ITX, Flex-ITX and ATX at ESC West 2009.

The Kontron KTGM45 motherboards feature long-term availability, high design quality and a selection of interfaces.

Based on the Mobile Intel GM45 chipset, the Mini-ITX, Flex-ATX and ATX Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards offer an ideal performance-per-watt ratio and up- to-date interface technology, such as PCI Express x16.

They carry four serial interfaces alongside 12 USB 2.0 interfaces.

Kontron said the embedded motherboards also offer more PCB layers than conventional motherboards, in order to achieve excellent signal qualities and optimise electromagnetic compatibility.

The Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards also feature solid capacitors.

Compared to boards with conventional electrolyte capacitors, they feature an extended lifetime and little to no wear-out, even at high temperatures.

The range of interfaces and flexibility for connecting monitors via S-video, VGA, LVDS, DVI and HDMI make the Kontron embedded motherboards ideal for computation-intensive visual computer systems in medical, automation, digital signage, security and video surveillance markets.

Graphic-intensive applications profit from the integrated DirectX10 graphics with Shader Model 4.0 for VGA and SDVO with DVI and HDMI via the PCIExpress x16 slot.

Resolutions of up to 2,048 x 1,536 via CRT and 1,920 x 1,080 via LVDS enable direct input to full HD panels in native resolution.

The Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards support all Intel processors with PGA 478 sockets up to the 45nm Intel Core2 Duo T9400 processor.

With the Intel Mobile 82GM45 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub and the Intel I/O Controller Hub (Intel ICH9EM), the motherboards offer a low chipset TDP (14.5W) as well as DDR3 RAM for energy efficient embedded designs.

Kontron’s embedded motherboards also support Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT 4.0) for remote management and easy maintenance, resulting in higher system availability and lower total costs.

Kontron’s KTGM45 embedded motherboard family also boosts data-intensive applications with up to 8GB of energy efficient DDR3 SDRAM.

To suit the needs of applications with extensive interface requirements, the motherboards offer one PCI Express x4, up to five PCI and three Intel Gigabit Ethernet; one of these with Intel AMT support.

This enables flexible and comfortable multiple networking, even when AMT is being employed.

In addition, with the 12 x USB 2.0, four RS232C, one parallel port and one PS/2, the Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards offer numerous interfaces for connecting peripherals.

On top of this, the Mini-ITX version offers two Firewire (IEEE1394) and one Compact Flash Type I + II for specific extensions for compact system designs.

Storage media can be connected via four SATA interfaces with RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality for high data security, and one additional ATA100 port.

The Kontron KTGM45 ATX, Flex-ATX und Mini-ITX embedded motherboards are available now and are supplied with Board Support Packages for Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded and Linux.
