Kontron quad-core 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor-based boards
Kontron gives OEMs a jump-start in developing a broad range of leading-edge compute- and graphics-intensive applications with COM Express® basic, Flex-ATX, Mini-ITX, AdvancedMC™, 3U and 6U CompactPCI® as well as 3U VPX products based on the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors.
With 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D tri-gate transistor technology, Kontron 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor-based boards provide up to 20% enhanced computing power and up to 40% increased performance per watt compared to designs based on the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors. Kontron’s new embedded computing platforms enable OEMs to build applications with increased processing density and I/O bandwidth within tight thermal envelopes. This also meets and exceeds the requirement for improved size, weight and power (SWaP) of embedded designs and enables designers to utilize the power of the latest quad-core Intel® processors for the first time on small form factors such as COM Express®, AdvancedMC™ and 3U VPX. Additionally, improved Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) floating point instruction set for signal processing and SSE instruction sets provide developers the tools to use the increased floating point performance for high performance embedded computing applications in markets such as military, avionics and medical.
Further advancements include the integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4000 that features over 16 execution units which is 30% more than the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors provide, and offers, in addition to VGA and LVDS, native support of three independent digital display interfaces, each of which can be configured for DisplayPort (DP), HDMI or DVI displays for sophisticated applications found in markets such as medical, infotainment and industrial automation. A high performance MPEG-2 hardware decoding unit allows for decoding of multiple high resolution full HD videos in parallel. OEMs and designers benefit from up to twice the HD media and up to 60% 3-D graphics performance for an improved user experience and stunning visuals. With support for Intel® Flexible Display Interface (FDI), DirectX® 11, OpenGL® 3.1 and OpenCL™ 1.1 developers can now use the latest APIs to accelerate the design of their applications. Kontron’s platforms also support up to 16GBytes of dual channel DDR3 memory, multiple Gigabit Ethernet, SATA and the latest high-throughput interfaces such as PCI Express 3.0 and USB 3.0 for high-bandwidth applications. The AdvancedMC™ processor module offering this high bandwidth is ideal for MicroTCA™ and AdvancedTCA® based telecommunications applications such as Long Term Evolution (LTE) or LTE-Advanced, wireless base stations, test systems for wire line and wireless network automation, and security applications.
