Kontron Australia  announces the introduction of the new 2.5-inch Pico-ITX embedded single board computers (SBCs). KTA55/pITX is Kontron’s smallest SBC platform based on the AMD Embedded G-Series with Fusion technology.  

Featuring an extensive range of dedicated interfaces, extremely small footprint (100mm x 72mm) and low power requirements, Kontron’s new range of embedded SBCs is one of the fastest and most cost-effective products available for the development of graphics-intensive small form factor applications.  

Kontron KTA55/pITX single board computers enable OEMs to utilise DirectX 11, full HD video display (1080 i/p) and dual-screen control features to reduce development time for small box applications such as those found in the latest digital signage and user-friendly sales kiosks.  

Target applications include all SFF applications with high graphics and video performance requirements including POS/POI multimedia kiosks and dual-screen installations in infotainment systems, control rooms and machine controls.  

OpenCL support enables computation-intensive applications in the low-power segment such as image processing and digital signal processing to benefit from Kontron’s latest off-the-shelf platform through minimised development times and simplified design-in process.  

Key features of Kontron KTA55/pITX single board computers: 

  • Accelerated processing unit integrates one or two 64-bit processor cores, a programmable graphics unit plus a PCI Express Gen 2.0 controller and a DDR3 RAM controller
  • 9W TDP for the accelerated processing unit makes it the perfect fit for low power applications
  • Developers can rely on existing cooling concepts from Kontron’s portfolio and accelerate system development
  • 1.2 GHz Single-Core processor AMD T44R or the 1.0 GHz Dual-Core processor AMD T44N
