Embedded mini-ITX AMD motherboard for rich media applications
July 20, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
Kontron has launched a Mini-ITX motherboard based on new AMD Embedded R-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) and AMD A70M controller hub for rich media applications.
The KTA70M/mITX delivers scalable performance from soldered dual-core up to quad-core APUs at an optimal balanced performance per watt ratio. The new Kontron embedded Mini-TX motherboard maintains a remarkably low Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 25 watts, even for the fastest APU, which makes it ideal for any thermal and energy constrained applications such as those found in casino gaming or medical. Furthermore it enables innovative digital signage applications with support for large displays with resolutions up to 4096x2160pixels. This avoids pixilation even in close proximity to the audience for a truly immersive visual experience. Developers can also utilize the accelerated processing capabilities of the APU with up to 426 GFLOPs, to accelerate both graphics- and compute-intensive applications while using industry-standard libraries such as OpenCL, DirectX 11 and DirectCompute, which help to minimize development times and simplify design-in processes.All news
