The new 2.5-inch KTA55/pITX is Kontron’s smallest embedded Motherboard based on the new AMD Embedded G-Series. With its extremely small footprint (100 x 72 mm) and low power requirements, this super-small Motherboard is the fastest and most cost-effective entry into the development of graphics-intensive small form factor applications. Based on the ready-to-use Kontron KTA55/pITX Motherboard, OEMs can utilize DirectX 11®, full HD video display (1080 i/p) and dual-screen control in the shortest development time for small box applications such as those found in the latest digital signs and user-friendly sales kiosks .
With just 9 W TDP for the accelerated processing unit (APU), which integrates besides one or two 64-bit processor cores also a programmable graphics unit together plus a PCI Express Gen 2.0 controller and a DDR3 RAM controller, the new Kontron 2.5-inch Pico-ITX® embedded Motherboard is the perfect fit for low power applications.
Peripheral components are connected via 6 x USB 2.0. Networking occurs via 10/100/1000 Ethernet. Storage media can be integrated over two 6.0 Gb/s SATA connections which can make full use of the transfer rates of even the more recent solid-state drives. A space saving - and bootable - microSD card slot is available as well. A trusted platform module provides data security. An LPC bus and 8 configurable GPIOs round out the feature set.
