Kontron, represented by Kontron Australia , present three new embedded motherboards with 45nm Intel Core 2 Quad and Intel Core 2 Duo processors in the form factors Mini-ITX, Flex-ATX and ATX. The Kontron KTGM45 motherboards feature high design quality and a wide selection of interfaces.
Based on the Mobile Intel GM45 chipset, the Mini-ITX, Flex-ATX and ATX Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards offer a suitable performance-per-watt ratio and up to date interface technology, like PCI Express x16, without neglecting embedded designers' needs. The Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards still carry, for example, 4 serial interfaces alongside the 12 USB 2.0 interfaces.
The embedded motherboards also offer more PCB layers in order to achieve good signal qualities and optimise electromagnetic compatibility. The Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards premiere a new quality feature: Solid capacitors. Compared to boards with conventional electrolyte capacitors, the embedded motherboards feature an extended lifetime and little to no wear-out even at high temperatures.
The extensive range of interfaces and flexibility for connecting monitors through S-video, VGA, LVDS, DVI and HDMI make the Kontron embedded motherboards suitable 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 through the PCI Express x16 slot. Resolutions of up to 2048 x 1536 through CRT and 1920 x 1080 through LVDS enable direct input to Full HD panels in native resolution.
The Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards support all Intel processors with PGA 478 socket up to the 45nm Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 processor. With the Intel Mobile 82GM45 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub and the Intel I/O Controller Hub (Intel ICH9EM), the Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards offer a low chipset TDP (14.5W) as well as DDR3 RAM for energy-efficient embedded designs. Kontron’s new 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 feature data intensive applications with up to 8GB of energy efficient DDR3 SDRAM. To suit the needs of applications with extensive interface requirements, the Kontron embedded motherboards additionally offer 1x PCI Express x4, up to 5 x PCI and 3x Intel Gigabit Ethernet, one of these with Intel AMT support. This enables – even when AMT is being employed – flexible and comfortable multiple networking.
In addition, with the 12 x USB 2.0, 4x RS232C, 1x parallel port and 1x PS/2, the Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards also offer numerous interfaces for connecting peripherals. The Mini-ITX version offers 2x Firewire (IEEE1394) and 1x Compact Flash Type I + II for specific extensions for compact system designs. Storage media can be connected through 4 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 supplied with comprehensive board support packages for Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded and Linux.
