Increased-power embedded platforms

  • 24-May-2012 12:55 EDT

Seven new application-ready embedded platforms from Kontron host the latest 22-nm quad-core Intel processors: the i7-3615QE and i7-3612QE. The platforms are available in COM Express basic, Flex-ATX, Mini-ITX, AdvancedMC, 3U and 6U CompactPCI, as well as 3U VPX. The boards provide up to 20% enhanced computing power and up to 40% increased performance per watt compared to designs based on the 2nd generation Intel Core processors. Further advancements include the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 that features over 16 execution units, which is 30% more than the second-generation Intel Core processors. A high-performance MPEG-2 hardware decoding unit allows for decoding of multiple high-resolution full-HD videos in parallel. The platforms also support up to 16 GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory, multiple Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, and the latest high-throughput interfaces for high-bandwidth applications.
