With the launch of the new embedded motherboard mITX-SKL-H Kontron is extending its long-term available Mini-ITX portfolio to include a vibration- and shock-proof motherboard with a soldered 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor (formerly codenamed ‘Skylake’). This ‘mini powerhouse’ has been designed especially for performance-intensive applications in harsh environments and supports the extended temperature range of 0°C to +60°C. With its outstanding graphics performance, the board operates up to three independent displays. Additionally, the Kontron mITX-SKL-H boasts an excellent performance-per-watt ratio and optimized Thermal Design Power (TDP). The ATX-compatible motherboard offers an extensive ecosystem so that developers can design even the most demanding systems based on standard components. This reduces R&D costs and accelerates time-to-market. 

Kontron introduced the new hardware embedded Security Solution Product Line and it is the first Embedded Computing Company to offer an embedded hardware security solution as part of Motherboard offerings. Customers can benefit from Internet Protocol and Integrity Protection, License Creation, Delivery, Management and Tracking, Implementation of license models as well as the assignment of privileges and access levels. These features are available on Kontron Approtect, two new products of the Security Solution product line

The Kontron mITX-SKL-H excels with a wide selection of interfaces. In addition, customer-specific functions can be integrated via standard extension slots such as PCI Express and Mini PCIe as well as Kontron’s own embedded Feature Connector. With its SIM-card socket, the motherboard is also destined for deployment in intelligent, distributed ‘Internet of Things’ applications. By supporting the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 2.0, the board offers DSP class I/O processing performance. This qualifies the ECC supporting Kontron mITX-SKL-H as an ideal platform for industrial real-time control applications. Due to the fact that the boards have a 7-year long-term availability, OEMs always obtain the same boards for additional or replacement systems and thus manage large field deployments extremely efficiently.

The Kontron mITX-SKL-H Mini-ITX embedded motherboard is based on the Intel® CM236 chipset and supports DDR4 RAM with ECC support. It is equipped with Intel® Xeon, Core i5/i7 and Celeron processors with Base Frequency from 2.4GHz to 2.8 GHz. For application-specific extension cards, it provides both a PCI Express Gen 3.0 as well as Mini PCIe slots. Further peripherals connect via USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports as well as via Kontron’s embedded Feature Connector. The new embedded motherboard supports up to three independent high-resolution displays or Display Port 1.2. The additional LVDS interface enables the connection of common and cost-efficient embedded displays. Four GbE interfaces with Intel® AMT 9.0 support which allow for extended network options. A large choice of memory media connects via four SATA interfaces with RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality: 4x SATA Gen 3.0 interfaces with up to 6 Gbit/s bandwidth and as well as mSATA Gen 3.0 for onboard SSD. HD audio and two COM interfaces round off the motherboard’s feature set.
