Kontron SBC, available from RDS, supports up to four displays
Embedded systems and display provider, Review Display Systems (RDS) now offers the AMD-based Kontron D3714-V/R mini-STX single board computer (SBC). It is able to support four independent displays, with resolutions of up to 4K, making it suitable for a wide range of embedded systems such as digital signage, information terminals, ticketing kiosks, medical displays, thin clients, and small industrial PCs.
Manufactured in Germany, the D3714-V/R mini-STX motherboard is based on AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 series processors and offers fanless operation. An integrated AMD Radeon Vega GPU (graphics processor unit) provides support for up to three DisplayPorts (V1.4, including DP++ support) and one HDMI port (V2.0b), driving display resolutions of up to 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels).
The board also offers dual channel 24-bit LVDS, an embedded DisplayPort V1.3 (4K), eight-bit GPIO and HD audio onboard. Other interfaces include USB 2.0, USB 3.1 (Gen1/Gen2) and SATA III. There is an M.2 SSD interface to connect SSD storage. Additionally, the D3714-V/R mini-STX motherboard supports M.2 WLAN / Bluetooth while the integrated AMD TPM (Trusted Platform Module) V2.0 provides computing security.
There are three motherboard versions available, to meet different graphics performance requirements. The V2 variant is equipped with the AMD V1605B processor (quad core 2.0/3.6GHz), GPU operating at 1.1GHz, with eight compute units and support for four displays. The R2 variant is based on an AMD Embedded R1305G (dual core 1.5 / 2.8GHz), GPU operating at 1.0GHz. This version has three compute units and supports three displays. Finally, the R1 version uses an AMD R1102G (dual core 1.2 / 2.6GHz), GPU operating at 1.0GHz, with three compute units and support for two displays.
The D3714-V/R is Kontron’s first completely new motherboard development following the acquisition of Fujitsu’s industrial motherboard division. It implements the compact mini-STX format which has dimensions of 140 x 148mm.
Operating temperature range is -10 to +60 degrees C.
The Kontron D3714-V/R mSTX SBC operates with a Microsoft Windows 10 or Linux-64 OS.
