Kontron Integrates Latest Generation Intel Atom Pentium and Celeron Processors into Its Computer-on-Modules and Motherboards


  • Kontron’s five new passively-cooled boards and modules with powerful, energy-efficient Intel® technology will be available 4th quarter 2016

Augsburg, Germany | October 26, 2016– Kontron, one of the world’s leading providers of Embedded Computer Technology (ECT), will introduce five new embedded platforms including motherboards and Computer-on-modules (COMs) based on the next-generation Intel® AtomTM processor E3900 series, Intel® Celeron® processor N3350, and Intel® Pentium® processor N4200 platform. Kontron’s new passively cooled embedded platforms will help developers achieve powerful and more energy-efficient solutions especially for low-noise systems that can benefit from CPUs that do not need any active cooling. POI/POS and other applications demanding high graphics quality are also well-supported with the latest Kontron boards and modules that offer the ability to support up to three independent displays at Ultra 4K resolution, and can handle up to 15 simultaneous 1080p decode streams.

Targeted at cost-sensitive all-in-one computer architectures, Intel’s new system-on-a-chip (SoC) Atom™ processors E3900 series feature multicore performance based on a new microarchitecture, and are manufactured on Intel’s latest and industry-leading 14nm tri-gate manufacturing process. These processors offer intense image processing/graphics and powerful real-time computing capabilities in a power-efficient and compact form factor. Intel has also added improved security and reliability capabilities. The new security engine offers the enhanced ability to protect data and operations in the most challenging environments. Intel’s time coordinated computing allows processors to be synchronized in an IoT network to within a millisecond, making processes more reliable and new, more demanding applications possible.

The new Kontron product family enables systems to be developed with extended levels of compute performance and greatly optimized energy efficiency. Passively cooled systems are easily supported by Atom™ processors’ low-power CPU dissipation. This feature ensures that the overall system is particularly quiet and much more reliable. In addition, Kontron’s new boards and modules deliver greatly enhanced 3D graphics performance, improved memory throughput with optional ECC support, and eMMC flash storage. Kontron also offers customers extended temperature platform options that are ideal for applications that must operate in demanding environmental conditions.

An added advantage for developers is that the new embedded platforms will be equipped with Kontron’s standard hardware-based embedded Security Solution Approtect. Kontron is the first embedded computing supplier to offer full security protection embedded in its COMs and motherboard offerings.
