Kontron has introduced the PICMG 1.3 system host PCI-761, a slot-card-sized industrial server board equipped with the Intel Q57 Express chipset for asynchronous real-time applications.

These include measurement and testing equipment, image processing and process control in market sectors such as energy, medical technology, automation, traffic and transportation.

The CPU board delivers good server performance with intelligent security features, inexpensive system administration and I/O technology in a small space.

The long-term available Kontron PCI-761 offers high scalability from the Intel Core i3 processor up to the Intel Core i7 processor with four 3.06GHz cores and up to 8GB DDR3-1333 memory for maximum server performance and bandwidth.

System designers are said to benefit from the board’s high reliability with a mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) of approximately 100,000 hours, which guarantees high availability and low maintenance costs.

In addition, Intel AMT and TPM technology provides Intel vPro capable management and security enhancements that simplify administration of systems based on the Kontron PICMG 1.3 system host board PCI-761.

With Intel 6.0, tasks such as installation and maintenance of operating systems, BIOS configuration and hardware diagnosis can be carried out remotely over the network without the need for additional remote management hardware.

With Intel Trusted Exception Technology and the onboard Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) the Kontron PCI-761 provides high system security, for example, due to the hardware encryption of all transmitted data.

With its LGA 1156 socket, Kontron’s system host board PCI-761 supports both Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors and the cost-efficient Intel Pentium processors and offers a feature set with 1,333MHz front-side bus, up to 8GByte of fast DDR3-1066/1333 SDRAM and a range of interfaces; one PCIe x16 (PEG), one PCIe x4 (also configurable as four PCIe x1), four PCI to the backplane, six 300Mbps Sata II (two via the backplane) with Raid 0, 1, 5 and 10 functionality, two 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet, 12 USB 2.0 (four via the backplane), one parallel and two serial interfaces (one RS232/422/485, one RS232) plus HD audio codec.

Applications are said to benefit from a range of extension options available via standard extension cards, which can be integrated via flexibly configurable backplanes reducing cabling work.

If no high-end PEG graphics are required, the integrated Intel HD Graphics Adapter offers full DirectX 10 support and resolutions of up to QXGA (2,560 x 1,600) at 75Hz via the VGA connection.

An optional robust USB flash module with up to 8GByte and a MTBF of five million hours enable maintenance-free system design without rotating storage media.

The Kontron PICMG 1.3 system host board PCI-761 supports Linux and the Microsoft Windows range, including Windows Embedded Standard 7, and other operating systems.
