Designed for use with PCI-104 expansion cards based on the PCI-104 standard, the Kontron JRexplus-DC can be used for developing a wide range of flat small form factor designs.
The Kontron JRexplus-DC offers high processing performance at a low power envelope of 10W. Designed for high efficiency, system developers can benefit from the front panel connectors that are located in the same place on all standard Kontron JRexplus products for easy and fast design-in. In particular, developers of compact devices can benefit from the PCI-104 interface that enables the use of PCI-104 extension cards for developing application-specific solutions.
The 3.5 inch Kontron JRexplus-DC offers a richer set of standard interfaces to fully exploit the possibilities of the onboard processor and chipset and reduce the need for internal cabling. These factors predestine the Kontron JRexplus-DC for a wide range of embedded applications that require maximum performance in a low power Small Form Factor design. Examples include applications in the gaming, digital signage, POS/POI and kiosk sectors amongst others.
Equipped with the mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset and ICH7M south bridge, the Kontron JRexplus-DC Single Board Computer supports up to 1GB of DDR2 RAM through the SO-DIMM slot and offers a wide range of interfaces.
For hard drives and other storage media, the Kontron JRexplus-DC offers 2 x SATA and 1 x PATA interfaces. There is a Gbit Ethernet port for fast network data exchange as well as an additional 10/100 Mbit Ethernet interface.
The Kontron JRexplus-DC also comes with 6x USB 2.0 ports (2 on front panel) and 2x RS232 interfaces as well as 1x LPT, floppy and PS/2 Mouse. There are 4 x GPIO and a CF card on the back side. With on-board TPM 1.2 (Trusted Platform Module), the board offers data and license protection. Power supply is through ATX conforming 10 pole connector. Kontron also supply connector cable and adapter if required.
In addition to the DVI-I for digital and analogue video output, LCD flat panels with resolutions up to UXGA (1600 x 1200) are controlled directly through the JILI30 dual channel LVDS interface for which there are already a wide number of cables for different types of displays. TTL flat panels are connected through an LVDStoTTL adapter.
The Kontron JRexplus-DC Single Board Computer supports Windows Vista, XP, XPe, CE and Linux and is available in Q2, 2009. The Kontron JRexplus-DC Single Board Computer is delivered ’plug-and-work’ for shortest time to market and to reduce customers’ design-in periods.
