Product Details Supplier Info More products

Kontron has announced that the industrial-grade Intel Atom processor E6xx series will be supported on Computer-on-Modules and Panel PCs.

The first products to integrate the new Intel Atom processor, specified for the industrial temperature range (E2) from -40 to 85C, include the Kontron Computer-on-Module nanoETXexpress-TT – an ultra-sized COM compatible to the new release of the COM Express COM.0 Rev 2.0 pin-out Type 10; and the Kontron rugged display HMITR – a fanless and maintenance-free intelligent display.

In addition to optimised power consumption and improved graphics performance, target applications benefit from the processor’s high level of integration, including memory, PCI Express and video/audio accelerators.

These features make the Intel Atom processor well suited for applications within the digital signage, energy, industrial automation, medical, military and transportation markets.

The processor is also ideal for HMI applications with dedicated interfaces, such as smart meters or in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.

Customers will benefit from lower energy consumption, reduced material costs for the entire system and overall improved performance – both in terms of actual performance and in terms of performance per watt.

The Kontron Computer-on-Module nanoETXexpress-TT and the Kontron rugged display HMITR both integrate the new Intel Platform Controller Hub EG20T.

The new Platform Controller Hub now connects through one of four PCI Express x 1 Lanes, resulting in energy-efficient x86 systems with customisable interfaces.

It also integrates a range of common I/O blocks such as SATA, USB and SD/SDIO/MMC, as well as Gigabit Ethernet MAC, and includes general embedded interfaces such as CAN, IEEE1588, SPI, I2C, UART and GPIO.

Customising can be accomplished via FPGAs or dedicated PCI Express devices.

As part of Kontron’s Original Design and Manufacturing (ODM) services, Kontron offers OEMs the option to implement individual board designs with this new, highly integrated SOC processor.

Kontron offers in-house programmed FPGAs, manufacturer-specific ASICs (PLC logic) or dedicated standard PCIe devices.

Therefore, systems are possible that integrate, besides versatile standard interfaces, additional communication ports, wireless connectivity, GPS services and video or audio streaming.

Only the processor and the respective components are required for these devices, reducing energy consumption and the use of materials for the components.

As an alternative to the Intel Platform Controller Hub EG20, third-party I/O hubs can also be provided.
