Kontron KTAM3874/pITX - 2.5" Pico-ITX Motherboard with TI Cortex A8

Up to 1GB DDR3 SDRAM, 5V Powered, 2x 10/100 LAN, microSD & USB2


With its new low-power embedded motherboard for the extended temperature range, Kontron is accelerating the development of especially robust and energy-saving ARM-based SFF designs. The Kontron motherboard KTAM33874/pITX is equipped with the Ti Sitara™ 3874 processor and provides tablet PC class performance and a comprehensive range of standard and embedded computing interfaces. With its Pico-ITX™ compliance it offers OEMs the possibility to realize cost-efficient SFF embedded appliances based on a standardized form factor. OEMs can now exploit the whole ecosystem which to date has been used for x86 technology. This helps to significantly reduce hardware development costs in comparison to full custom designs and increase long-term availability. If no individual hardware adjustments are required, then the board, which supports Linux, Android and Windows WEC7 is application-ready and can be immediately deployed.

The Kontron Pico-ITX™ board based on the ARM Cortex A8 single-core processor boasts a low TDP (Thermal Design Power) which makes it extremely suitable for compact, fanless applications. It is also the first Kontron motherboard designed from scratch for the extended temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C. It is therefore fit to cope with even the most adverse environmental conditions. Examples of application areas for the new Kontron Pico-ITX™ motherboard are autonomous battery- or solar-powered outdoor systems or mobile or stationary dual-display applications like Box PCs, HMIs and thin clients. The target markets include building and home automation, industrial automation, digital signage and transportation as well as medical and military.

For the KTAM3874/pITX with energy-efficient ARM processor technology Kontron has announced a minimum of 7 years long-term availability. On its 100 x 72 mm sized standard small form factor this highly integrated motherboard offers everything that developers need to realize complete systems: an extensive range of interfaces and on-board Flash memory mean that there is no need for OEMs to source any additional components. A SIM card slot and the low average power consumption of less than 5 watts even facilitate the development of appliances in self-sufficient continuous operation in environments without power supply or network lines.
