Kontron recently launched a family of embedded motherboards that supports the new Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo Processor T7400. The new 2 x 2.16 GHz processor delivers 64-bit technology and 4MB shared L2 cache that can be dynamically assigned to each of the cores. The new product family consists of three basic products in different form factors: ATX, Flex-ATX and Mini-ITX.
The Kontron 986LCD-M/mITX is the smallest and most dense board with a compact size of only 17cm x 17 cm and one extension slot. The Kontron 986LCD-M/FLEX and the Kontron 986LCD-M/ATX offer the same feature set, but have three and six I/O slots respectively. All three boards are based on the Intel(R) 945GM Express + ICH7R Embedded Chipset. The Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor and on-board Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 provide extreme performance for embedded applications with low power consumption. Each board is designed for processor and graphics intensive applications such as: gaming, medical technology, multi media, point of information, point of sale, data communications, and high-end thin clients.
