Kontron has released two embedded motherboards build on the second-generation Intel Core I3/I5/I7 processors for computing- and graphics-intensive applications.

The Kontron Flex-ATX embedded motherboard (the KTQ67/Flex) and the Kontron Mini-ITX embedded motherboard (the KTQM67/mITX) are claimed to offer excellent quad-core processors with increased processor performance and double the graphics performance of predecessor platforms.

With long-term availability, these are Kontron’s highest-performing ATX-compliant embedded designs, according to the company.

Incorporating a wide range of interfaces, the Kontron Mini-ITX and Flex-ATX embedded motherboards simplify the design-in process because they include all required standard interfaces for a range of computing- and graphics-intensive applications.

In addition, they support Kontron’s cross-platform Kontron Embedded Application Programming Interface (KEAPI) middleware, which speeds up application development and reduces the time to market and total cost of ownership.

With the integrated Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology and Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX), customer applications benefit from quicker floating-point operations and vectorial calculations with reduced power consumption – suitable for imaging processes in industrial automation, medical and military applications.

In addition, with the integrated Intel HD graphics, the new motherboards offer 2D and 3D graphics performance with DirectX10.1 and OpenGL 3.0 support on board at the level of dedicated graphics cards.

Graphics-intensive applications, such as digital signage, infotainment and gaming, benefit from these embedded motherboards.

Even multi-screen applications with the simultaneous presentation of two separate HD videos or 3D Bluray applications are possible with the Kontron KTQ67 embedded motherboards, without additional components.

Customers can implement high-performance digital signage applications with several displays in a cost-efficient manner using only one hardware platform.

With two Displayports, one DVI or VGA and LVDS, the new embedded motherboards support all industry-relevant monitor standards without additional adapters or cost.

The implemented embedded feature connector, supporting up to 160 GPIO ports and analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analogue converters (DACs), makes the new embedded motherboards suitable for applications with high input/output (I/O) requirements.
