RDS adds latest Micro-ATX motherboards from Kontron
Industrial motherboards from Kontron, the K384x series feature Intel 12th generation processors and are available from Review Display Systems (RDS).
Based around the Intel Alder Lake chipset, the Micro-ATX K3481-Q, K3482-Q and K3843-B are designed for continuous 24-hour operation in industrial environments. They provide different levels of integration, cost performance, and offer support for a range of Intel processors including the Core i9, i7, i5, i3, and Pentium and Celeron processors.
All three have four memory sockets supporting up to 128Gbytes of the latest DDR5-4800 DIMM. They also all have four DisplayPorts which enable support for four independent external displays, multiple M.2 solid-state drive (SSD) expansion capability, four PCI Express (Gen5) sockets, four USB 3.2 (Gen1/Gen2), RS232 serial comms and one 8-bit general purpose I/O. CPU thermal design power (TDP) can be reduced for on-board power management and cooling.
Peter Marchant, embedded division manager, RDS claimed that Kontron is one of the first manufacturers to design, develop and produce Micro-ATX boards using the 12th Generation Intel (Alder Lake) processors. The Kontron K348x series offers on-board integration, expansion capability and provides an effective cost of ownership for use in a broad range of industrial applications, he added.
The K3481-Q integrates the Intel Q670E chipset and provides the highest level of functionality and connectivity with three Ethernet ports (two 2.5Gbits per second and one 1Gbits per second) available on the rear I/O. Ethernet teaming and Intel Time Coordinated Computing (TCC) are also supported.
The K3482-Q is based on the Intel Q670 chipset and supports a single 1Gbit per second Ethernet port.
The K3483-B offers a more cost effective and less densely populated version of the K3482-Q and is equipped with the Intel B660 business chipset, said RDS. Both the K3482-B and K3483-Q feature a range of connectivity and have integrated TPM 2.0 onboard to support Windows 11.
All three Kontron Micro-ATX motherboards have mechanical outline dimensions of 243.8 x 243.8mm and support an operating temperature range of 0 to +60 degrees C.
