Kontron recently launched three fanless single board computers. The new SBCs feature 600 MHz Intel® Pentium® M processor, 512KB L2 cache, and 852GM chipset. This trio is based on the PC/104-plus, EPIC, and JRex form factors and meets the needs of any small embedded application that requires mid-level performance with the lowest power consumption. These new PC/104, EPIC and JRex designs are particularly attractive for embedded applications. The boards offer higher processing speed without higher power consumption.
Depending on the requirements of their application, OEMs can chose between the three form factors. The 90mm x 96mm Kontron MOPS-PM PC/104-plus design is ideal for the most space-saving PCI and ISA designs. The Kontron EPIC/PM is the best choice for PCI and ISA applications requiring external standard PC interfaces soldered onto the CPU board. In addition, the Kontron EPIC-PM features a single power supply solution for ATX and 5V by an enclosed adapter. Applications that rely on JFLEX-based expansions are ideal for the Kontron JRex/PM. The Kontron JRex/PM 3.5-inch single board computer is similar to EPIC with standard PC interfaces on the baseboard and is purely PCI-based. The JRex uses only SMT components, making it an even more cost-saving design – compared to press-fit.
Equipped with the Intel® 852GM GMCH and Intel® ICH-4 southbridge, the three new single board computer variants deliver an optimized integrated graphics solution with an energy-efficient 400 MHz system bus and integrated 133 MHz 32-bit 3D core. All three boards support up to 1GB of DDR 333 system memory.
